Daith piercing to help lessen or eliminate migraines

This evening I got a Daith piercing that's supposed to help or eliminate migraines. Has anyone on here done this? If so, did you have a good result?

    I've never heard of this. Who recommended for you to do this? Please explain the process. Has it started working since getting it?

      Sochima, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you. The Daith piercing has made an amazing difference. I haven't had a migraine since getting it. I've had some neck soreness, and two random headaches, but they weren't bad at all, in fact hardly anything. As far as why they work, I guess it's similar to the way acupuncture works.

    yes I've had this done last June (2016).

    As I suffered for 20+ years with migranes....... A few friends at work had there's done first, as I was hitting the premenapause stage my migranes were terrible I simply couldn't stand it anymore,

    for me it's been a life saver, they have been massively reduced..,,,,,

    however I may get the odd one now and again.

    how r u finding it?.

      Hi Shelly, I've not been on here much lately, that's why I've not answered. Sorry about that! The Daith piercing is wonderful! I believe my migraines were hormonally triggered and they would last for 3-5 days and I would usually have 2-3 every month. Three of my daughters and I had them done at the same time and they are also very happy with their results.
