If You See Someone With This Piercing, This Is What It Means

If you have ever had a migraine before, you know exactly how unbearably painful it can feel.¬†According to the Migraine Research Foundation, approximately 18% of American women and 6% of American men suffer from migraines on a regular basis. Migraines don’t just mean a bad headache – they completely debilitate the sufferer, causing extreme pain on either one or both sides of the head. They occur due to a complex assortment of neurological symptoms, and can include nausea, vomiting, disorientation, dizziness, and extreme sensitivity to light and/or sound. Attacks can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours, on average.

Many people turn to pharmaceutical drugs for help, but did you know that getting a particular ear piercing can help to alleviate your migraines? You might wonder how a piece of jewelry attached to your ear could possibly aid in eliminating your migraines, so allow us to explain below.

Here’s how this ear piercing is helping people with migraines:

If you love piercings and also happen to suffer from migraines, you will love this idea. Daith piercings have existed for around 3,000 years, but the name wasn’t coined until the 1990’s. The daith piercing goes through the cartilage nearest to the ear canal, appearing to actually enter it if you look at it from a distance. It works in the same way as acupuncture to relieve pain, and actually, acupuncturists target this pressure point during treatment if the patient suffers from migraines.

Simply put, piercing the skin allows blood vessels around the needle to open up, stimulating blood flow to the tissues in the area. While daith piercings haven’t been formally studied in regard to relieving migraines, countless people who have gotten the piercing have reported little to no migraines after getting their ear pierced.

Acupuncture works to relieve pain since your body releases endorphins after having the needles penetrate the skin. In the same way, your body releases endorphins after getting a piercing, which explains why the daith piercings seem to work for so many people.

However, even though acupuncture might work to alleviate your migraines, you might want to go ahead with the daith piercing if you also enjoy a little bit of ear jewelry. So, the daith piercing serves as a stylish way to relieve migraines.

    It’s actually the daith rather than the tragus piercing shown on the chap at top of page that assists migraines / headaches and it works wonders.
