|Now available in Australia, Cefaly is a drug-free method for treating migraine pain and preventing migraine headaches from ever occurring. Cefaly is clinical proven. Cefaly treats migraine pain with neurostimulation – a stimulus that limits pain signals from the nerve centre by working on the trigeminal nerve where migraine headaches start. The patented Cefaly treatment changes the trigger threshold of migraine headaches. As the pain threshold becomes harder to reach, migraine headaches are less frequent, less painful, and simply disappear. Cefaly offers patients suffering from migraine pain and headaches an efficient electrotherapeutical treatment delivered via an extremely comfortable, ergonomic and simple-to-use medical device.|
