How is daith piercing effective for anxiety?
Well, if you have come this far in order to search about the effectiveness of daith piercing, then you must be the one who definitely knows’s that what actually daith piercing is and with which areas it does deal. However, in case if you really don’t really know that with which areas daith piercing deals, then let us tell you ………….
Basically, daith piercing applies the ancient knowledge of acupuncture or acupressure. This treatment actually finds it’s origin in Ancient China and is believed to help the flow of energy in the body of an individual.
Acupuncturists do it by piercing some specific points in someone’s body with needles to help unblock gateways of energy inside the human body.
A famous doctor and the father of modern acupuncture Dr. Paul Nogier claims that there are three points in the ear that are very important and have some particular and effective functions.
These points include Shenmen or the stress-relieving point, Point Zero or the calming and grounding point, and, in last, the tranquilizer point which induces relaxation. To use daith piercing for anxiety, a piercer must target just one point, and that is point zero.
A single mistake in indicating the point zero will result in no specific effect and will be ineffective because it will miss that pressure point.
Do the sides matter in piercing?
Let’s just not make you asleep and tell you in simple words.
So, Yes, it matters that on which side of your head you get your piercing. Well, just get your piercing on that side of your head where your anxiety-related pain tends to cluster. However, if you are not trying to treat anxiety-related migraines then you can pierce on any side of your head. It doesn’t matter until you are trying to treat migraines.
Does it work?
Let’s be honest here. There is no specific or any research that shows that daith piercing can be a treatment for anxiety or migraines. But on the other side, the patients have something to say, and they say that yeah, it really works.
More than 50% of the patients who get the daith piercing say’s that they have found an extraordinary development after daith piercing and there anxiety and migraines are cured to almost 90 percent. Most of them don’t even have a panic attack and say’s that they have recovered almost 100% from the condition.
So if you are up for a daith piercing, then make it quick, who knows if it work’s for you also 🙂 .
