Let the Magnet Pull Your Headache Away

Two months ago, British researchers introduced a new method that can send your headache packing after about 48 hours after use. The handheld device called Spring Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) relieves headache by sending magnetic pulse at the back of the head. Technically, the device isn’t new as it first came in the medical scene in 2010 – but the modification of application is.

Headache experts in the U.K. revealed that when used in a three-month treatment period, TMS can reduce the intensity and frequency of a patient’s headache attack. It can also alleviate other symptoms like vertigo, nausea, sensitivity to light, and sensitivity to sounds.

The device costs £500 (approximately $800) – quite pricey for a headache cure. But when your meds fail to perform the magic of casting your headache away, you know you can always opt for a better wizard to do the job for you.
