A daith piercing is a piercing located in the innermost cartilage fold of the ear. It’s a specific type of piercing in the ear cartilage midline toward the front of the ear (see image).
People also ask, does it matter which side Daith piercing?
In theory, yes — it does matter what side the piercing is on. Get the piercing on the side of your head where your anxiety-related pain tends to cluster. If you’re not trying to treat anxiety-related migraines, it doesn’t make a difference which side of your head you get the piercing on.
One may also ask, how long does it take for Daith piercing to help migraines?
Healing generally takes up to 2 months but for some people it can be longer as everyone’s bodies heal differently. It could be sore to touch durning the healing process so I recommend sleeping on the opposite side as to not bother the piercing. The less you touch and mess with the piercing the quicker it will heal.
What piercing helps you lose weight?
Proponents of ear stapling claim that the staples stimulate a pressure point that controls appetite, leading to weight loss. Small surgical staples are placed into the inner cartilage of each ear.
“Daith piercings are no more expensive than any other inner-ear cartilage piercing,” says Monckton. The cost will depend on the location and what jewelry you choose to bedazzle it with, but between $30 to $80 (plus the jewelry) is usually an accurate range.
There’s no proof that daith piercings affect your pain receptors or reduce migraine pain. In fact, the piercing may damage the spot where acupuncture would be performed to stimulate, not poke through, this pressure point.
Is the daith piercing dangerous? Not quite, but it does come with risks, of course. The piercing process itself can be painful, and the area can remain tender for weeks while it heals. As with any piercing, the ear piercing for headaches also carries a risk of infection.
Can you get both Daith piercings at the same time? While many people want to get matching piercings in each ear, it’s strongly recommended that you only pierce one ear at a time.
