Do you get migraines? This simple piercing, called a daith piercing, supposedly helps keep them away. A daith piercing is a piercing in the innermost cartilage fold of the ear. Advocates say it works in the same way as acupuncture, targeting pressure points on the body’s surface to ease discomfort.
According to the NHS, acupuncture works by stimulating nerves under the skin and in muscle tissue. This results in the body producing pain-relieving substances, such as endorphins. It is likely these substances are responsible for any beneficial effects seen with acupuncture.
Many people on social media have come forward to share their positive experiences of getting a daith piercing.
