Woman Says Weird Acupressure Trick Helps Get Rid Of Migraines

If you're one of the unlucky folks who suffers with migraines, you'll know how debilitating they can be, getting in the way of doing the simplest of tasks or even getting out of bed.

But one woman in the US reckons she's found a drug-free trick that stops the headaches in their tracks.


Elizabeth Hayes, from Indiana, took to Facebook to share her little tip that involves using a plastic peg to carry out a bit of acupressure therapy.

Posting a photo of a plastic clip, designed to keep opened food packets fresh, attached to the spot between her thumb and index finger, she wrote: "This chip clip saved my life tonight. I had a migraine start almost twelve hours ago and about an hour ago it was at an unbearable limit.

"I had exhausted all of my drugs and tricks I usually use to ease my migraines to no avail. I googled fast relief for migraines, and it pulled up something called Aculief.


"I glanced at the counter and saw this chip clip and decided it would do about the same thing. Within one minute I had some relief, and within twenty my pain was reduced by half!"

She went on to say that she has since ordered one of the specially designed clips from the Aculief website.

The post has quickly gone viral, with more than 260,000 shares and thousands of likes. It's also been flooded with comments from people who have said applying pressure to that specific area - even using their other hand to pinch the spot - had worked for them.

According to the Aculief website it works by applying pressure to 'the L14 acupressure point located on your hand between the thumb and forefinger', before adding that 'has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to provide relief of headaches'.


It also shares links to some studies which it says back up the claims.

The item also has some glowing reviews online, with happy customer writing: "Truly remarkable, it worked so quickly. I'm going to buy more for my friend."


While another wrote: "I tried my friends and absolutely could not wait to get my hands on one for myself. Aculief works."

Well, I reckon it's worth a shot, don't you?
