A lot of people get piercings for fun and for aesthetic purposes but the inner ear piercing has a mindblowing purpose that will probably leave you speechless. It will also make you want to make a piercing appointment if you suffer from migraines. Did you know that it can work as a holistic method of relief for people who suffer from chronic migraines?
Wow, right? Who’d think?
This migraine cure is known as auricular acupuncture that involves hitting a particular pressure point in the ear. People also get piercings in this area that is called a daith piercing.
The daith piercing relieves the painful symptoms of a migraine outside of the stylish purposes. Wearing it as jewelry makes it a relief that is not expensive at all.
Dace Kurlander, the owner of the Tempest Artistic Studio in Hopewell Junction, New York claims:”‘I’ve had many people come to me looking for migraine relief. It’s a much cheaper alternative to medicine and even acupuncture, and many of their doctors recommend it to them.”
“Essentially it’s the same concept as acupuncture,” says Kurlander. “The piercing hits a pressure point which then relieves pressure in your head.”
He also suggests that when getting the piercing, you should get it on the ear that’s the same with the side of your head where migraine feels more prominent.
Even though the science hasn’t supported this claim yet, a lot of people shared their positive results with the piercing.
Okay, wow, again. Sounds promising. However, the best advice you could take is to check your migraines with a doctor first. And if you do decide to get this type of piercing, make sure you research the artist and the studio. You want to be safe from all aspects!
