Daith piercing & Migraine


A daith piercing is located in the innermost cartilage fold of the ear, an area considered by some to be connected to the body's pressure points in traditional Chinese medicine.

This has led to a growing interest in the daith piercing as more than just a fashion statement. Discover our Daith Piercing Full Guide.

What effect does Daith piercing have on migraines?
Migraines are intense, often debilitating headaches that can significantly impact one's quality of life. Some migraine sufferers have turned to daith piercings as a form of relief, with many reporting a decrease in the frequency and intensity of their migraines post-piercing. While scientific evidence is limited and primarily anecdotal, the theory is that the piercing may stimulate the vagus nerve, potentially offering relief similar to acupuncture.
Daith piercing & stress...

In today's fast-paced world, stress is an ever-present challenge, affecting both physical and mental health. Interestingly, daith piercings have also been discussed in the context of stress relief. The premise is similar to that of migraine relief—the piercing is thought to exert pressure on certain points that are linked to stress relief in acupuncture.

The stress-relief theory

The idea is that the daith piercing can act as a form of continuous acupressure, a technique used in traditional Chinese medicine to promote relaxation and well-being. By targeting a specific point in the ear associated with calming the mind and easing tension, the daith piercing could potentially serve as a physical reminder to relax and breathe.

Anedoctal success stories

While the evidence is largely anecdotal, with no significant scientific studies to back it up, many individuals have reported a sense of calm and reduced stress levels after getting a daith piercing. These personal testimonials suggest that, for some, the piercing may indeed play a role in their overall stress management strategy.

Considerations before getting a daith piercing
