Can Daith Piercings Cure Migraine Headaches?

Here's the text of an article I wrote for Pain Magazine that appeared in the November 2016 issue. It addresses a question that has come up again and again, from both piercers and piercees: whether a daith piercing can cure migraine headaches. 

 

Migraine Headaches and Daith Piercings

Dear Ms. Angel,

People keep asking about whether daith piercings can actually cure migraine headaches. I have seen conflicting information about this online, so I want to know your opinion on the matter.

Also, I find them kind of challenging to do because of how tucked in that spot is. Any tips?

Thank you,

J.

Hi J.,

Christina and VCH Piercing, Lorum and Frenum Piercing

Below is a correspondence exchange between me and a woman who had questions about genital (and ear cartilage) piercings for her and for her boyfriend:

Hi Elayne!
 
I'm sure Atlanta was glad to have you back! Unfortunately for me, I've moved to Oklahoma for a while. I keep up with your schedule so I'm hoping that one of these days, I will have the pleasure and privilege to meet you.
 
I have two questions and since ladies should always go first, I will ask the question in regards to the Christina piercing. Lol. I've done some research on it and find it very attractive. Can you tell me more about it and is it and ok piercing for a woman to have?

Secondly, my boyfriend wants to get a frenum piercing however, it will be his first and only piercing and his main concern is the placing of the piercing itself. He was curious about, and sorry for being graphic but, masturbation and intercourse. After it's healed, will the placement affect what he does with his penis? I'm also curious myself since I'm the one who suggested it after we looked at several different kind of male gential piercings and he asked me which one I liked. Anyways, that's all I wanted to know.

Thank you. T.
