The Cefaly Headband wants to get rid of your headaches
If you have a headache brewing, it’s hard to think about anything else. The constant throb of your brain takes the forefront of any situation, making even the simplest tasks feel like climbing Mt. Everest. While you can take pain medication to reduce this annoyance, it’s not going to do you much good if you have frequent headaches and eventually become immune to the pills.
If you already know why you’re getting headaches, then you can try and find ways to treat yourself at home without having to traipse to the hospital on the regular. The Cefaly headband makes micro-impulses to stimulate the trigeminal nerve endings (this is normally where headaches start). You will need to have a medical prescription to purchase this $295 headband, but it is said that 71% of the users in a study said that their headaches were reduced after using this.
If you do end up getting a prescription and purchasing this, you’ll need to clean your forehead, apply the electrode, put on the headband, start it up, and adjust your intensity. Hopefully after a few of these 20 minute sessions you’ll be headache free. The electrodes are purchased separately, and a set of three will cost you around $25. These can be used up to 20 times, which isn’t terrible if the trade-off is no longer having to deal with headaches.
Available for purchase with medical perscription via cefaly
