Those who have experienced migraine understand that any way to stop it is worth trying. Even donning this abuse-attracting headband.

The Cefaly electronic headband, despite looking like an accessory from Star Trek, is a fully functioning FDA approved nerve stimulator. And a recent study found that its use led to fewer days with migraines for the majority of participants.

The headband works by using a self-adhesive electrode that can be worn for up to 20-minutes each day. What happens after 20-minutes isn't made clear. But since Cefaly delivers "transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation" it's probably best to follow the guidelines.

The headband is for those over 18 years old who are warned they may experience a tingling sensation or slight muscle contractions. Not a bad trade off to avoid the brain cracking pain of a migraine.

European users can try out the Cefaly for a 40-day trail. Paying £43 will cover postage and packaging and if buying it seems like the right move the £43 will be deducted from the total £259 price.
