  1. Thought you might find this interesting reading.

  2. As a migraine sufferer this sounds interesting. When I have a bad headache I do apply pressure on my temples so I wonder how this would feel. The trick seems to be using it at the first hint a headache is coming, which is sometimes hard to catch, and then using it routinely. If I wore this at work would anyone make fun of me? 😉

    • This is not at all about pressure (I use a Theracane for that). It’s literally just electrical impulses to the trigeminal nerve. At the beginning of the session, it’s relatively uncomfortable, then it feels like someone is massaging your brain directly with two fingers, and at the end it feels like someone is doing “the egg” on your brain, which is really relaxing. I’ve only ever used it at onset at home in bed, not as a preventative measure; it’s just too expensive and I paid out of pocket since our healthcare system doesn’t yet have the appropriate number assigned to the device yet to order it.
