The occipitalis muscle, what do you know about it?

The occipitalis muscle is a muscle that covers parts of the skull at the back of the head. It together with frontalis muscle is known as occipitofrontalis muscle. It arises from the upper neck along the base of the skull (occipital bone) and innervated by the facial nerve. Its contraction draws the skull back and contributes to the headache.

The occipitofrontalis muscle consists of two parts: the occipital parts as mentioned above and the frontal parts. These two muscles are connected by epicranial aponeurosis. The frontal parts are called frontalis muscle. The frontalis is continuing from the aponeurosis and is inserted in the fascia of the facial muscle and in the skin above the eyes and nose. This muscle is facial expression muscle and it draws the scalp back to raise eyebrows and wrinkles the forehead.

Acupuncture can relax these muscles and release headache and get rid of the wrinkles.
