Is a Daith Piercing Right for You?

What is a Daith Piercing?

A daith piercing is a hoop that fits around the cartilage inside your ear. Daith piercings are located in the deepest fold of the ear cartilage. Daith piercings are believed to relieve migraines by activating a relaxing pressure spot on the ear, in addition to being cosmetically appealing.

Daith piercing in many of our Ontario clinics is a secure and sanitary alternative to non-medical piercings. Clients often prefer the safety and security of having it done to a medical standard of care and hygiene.

Daith Piercing Procedure

To prevent mistakes due to its position on the ear, the daith must be pierced extremely softly and slowly. The daith Piercing can take only a few more seconds to complete.

The daith piercing will be dull and uncomfortable for a few weeks after treatment, but cautious management will relieve much of the discomfort.

Daith Piercing Healing Time

A daith piercing can take up to 9 months to recover. During the healing process, it is typical to experience some redness, bruising, or tenderness.

Caring for a Daith Piercing

Here are a few tips for taking care of your daith piercing after the procedure and in the months to come. Following these tips will allow you to have a quicker healing process and prevent infection.

  1. Clean it three times a day for at least a month
  2. Don’t change your earrings for three months after your piercing
  3. Avoid touching your piercing

Daith Piercings for Migraines

How can a daith piercing help with sinus pain? According to one theory, the piercing affects a branch of your vagus nerve, which travels from your brain to your body. The continuous pressure of the earring on this one spot is supposed to function similarly to acupuncture in blocking pain receptors in your body.

Acupuncture is occasionally used to treat migraines, and therapy may include your therapist pressing on a small spot on your ear near where daith piercings are done. Therefore, having a daith piercing which is constantly putting pressure on that specific spot may relieve migraines.
