Acupuncture Daith Piercings
by Dee Duncan / Body Piercer
I want to start off by saying I’m a professional piercer and I work directly with an acupuncturist to help people get the proper treatment for their migraines. The daith is NOT accurate for most. It has more of a temporary effect from the initial swelling that occurs right after the piercing. That swelling puts pressure on the rest of the nerves in the ear and provides temporary relief, but once that swelling is gone, so are the results you wanted.
However, that being said, the acupuncture piercing(s) for migraine really do exist. The catch is that you must have your ears marked first by the acupuncturist and placement is different for everyone because your migraines come on for different reasons. We have combined our efforts for this issue for the past couple of years and the results have been incredible. The essential key is that the placement varies.
