has been rated as effective by several reviewers who suffer from headaches and migraines. The stick itself claims to work by producing a cooling effect on the temples, forehead and neck using anti-inflammatory essential oils mint and lavender (long reputed as herbal remedies for aches). The roll on also provides a massaging acupuncture effect.

Indeed, there has been growing academic research into the effect of coolness and massage on pain. So perhaps there is something in it after all? You can review Migrastick’s scientific back-up data for yourself.
