Since 2015 we have had clients come in regularly requesting daith piercings specifically for the treatment of migraines and headaches. We were a bit sceptical at first, and there is no medical reason why this works.
The daith is not actually in an acupressure spot, however, the results have been quite amazing. For the majority of those who get a daith piercing, their migraines either disappear entirely, lessen in severity or decrease in frequency. The side of the head that the migraines/headaches tend to arise from is typically the side of the daith piercing.
Alternately you can pierce both daiths to cover all the bases.
Where exactly is the daith? The ‘daith’ is a cartilage fold of the inner ear.
Will a daith piercing help my migraines?
Maybe. A daith piercing does not work on everyone for the treatment of migraines and headaches, but it does seem to help the majority of those we pierce.
Are there any risks? The risks are the same for a daith piercing as with all piercings – see our Piercing FAQ/Tips and ensure you only have piercings done with highly trained, experienced body piercers.
SO what do you think will the daith be your next piercing?
