Alternative Migraine Relief: Daith Piercings

Alternative Migraine Cures- (1)

Daith piercings are on the rise this year. Understandably… they’re super cute! The inner cartilage piercing can be accessorized with a ride array of jewelry, ranging from simple curved barbells and segment rings to elaborate captive rings, and even septum clickers.

 

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons the daith piercing has increased in popularity is the rumored benefit for those who suffer from migraines. Many who experience these excruciating headaches go through countless trial & error processes trying to find relief. Piercing a hole in your body to test out an unproven theory might seem kind of crazy, but I recently started suffering from migraines, and let me tell you – It’s a risk worth taking!

 

Even if you find your migraines still remain, at least you still have this cute new piercing to accessorize!

 

Daith Piercings

The location of the piercing happens to be an acupuncture pressure point. Although the effect the piercing has cannot be directly related to an actual acupuncture procedure, it is still being examined as another “alternative” form of treatment for migraines. In theory, piercing this area could provide something more than a placebo effect. As for fully curing migraines… eh, not so much. If anything a daith piercing will lessen the frequency of the headaches, which in turn decreases drug dependency. If you could eliminate the need to depend on medication for relief, would you?

Septum

Septum piercings have been on the rise in popularity for a few years now. We definitely won’t see a decline anytime soon! Jewelry for these piercings ranges from simple to elaborate designs, drawing inspiration from Middle Eastern culture. Septum clickers are the most popular style of jewelry used, but captive rings and horseshoe barbells are also a hit. And can you really deny the legitimacy of a piercing that emphasizes the perfect lip color? Absolutely not.

Multiple Ear Piercings

Pretty sure this trend has been around longer than the septum piercing. Something about it screams 90’s to me, in the best way possible. This would be one of the exceptions to the whole “less is more” rule. The more earrings, the better! There are so many unique ways to complete this look. Not to mention an array of sparkling jewelry to boot. Cartilage piercings like the rook, daith, tragus and helix are popular. For the daring, try the double hole piercing known as the scaffold or industrial!
