Mirgraine? Headache? Stress?
Try Cefaly the latest innovation for treatment and prevention of migraine and headache.
WHAT IS CEFALY?
Cefaly is a CE and ISO certified medical device designed to treat and prevent migraine headaches. Cefaly can considerably reduce or replace the consumption of side effect producing medications. Cefaly is the first cranial analgesic electrotherapeutic device to acquire ISO medical certification proven effective on migraine pain with no side effects.
Cefaly's patented design uses TENS technology which has been researched in medical circles for over 40 years. TENS technology is known for its safety and dramatic absence of side effects, making Cefaly unique to all other headache and migraine pain treatments.
Cefaly is designed and developed in accordance with the strictest quality standards eliminating all possible short-term and long-term dangers.
Tens of millions of Cefaly devices have been in regular use for several years and not a single incident has ever been reported. Cefaly is a tried-and-tested migraine pain reliving technique that is extremely well respected in scientific reviews and has confirmed its effectiveness for several years.
Cefaly is an innovative, lightweight and extremely cost effective pain relieving solution. Its self adhesive electrode is placed directly on to the forehead. Worn conveniently like a pair of eyeglasses, Cefaly connects to the electrode and begins its subtle treatment. For a full detailed step by step guide on how to use Cefaly, click here.
HOW DOES CEFALY WORK?
Muscle cells and Nerve cells are the only two types of cells that respond well to electrical stimulus: Cefaly was designed to work specifically on nerve cells affected by pain.
Cefaly works by introducing safe, and painless electric impulses to act on the very nerves that transmit migraine pain, a bifurcation of nerves known as the trigeminal nerve. Often referred to as "the great sensory nerve of the head and neck", the trigeminal nerve is an Endorphin-producing mechanism that carries information about touch, temperature, perception and pain from the face and scalp to the brainstem.
The patented Cefaly design covers this bifurcation and therefore acts on the main part of the trigeminal nerve. Through an electrode covering the middle of the forehead, Cefaly sustains a constant link between migraine pain specific nerves and the electric impulses it generates. Cefaly transmits extremely specific and perfectly adapted electrical impulses to safely stimulate the trigeminal nerve.
Cefaly generates very precise electrical impulses to stimulate the nerve fibers selectively. As the impulses are produced very slowly, they are virtually imperceptible. Cefaly’s advanced technology enables an electronic feedback mechanism to adjust the electrical impulses to the specific requirements of the individual user for personalized efficacy and comfort.
Cefaly specifically stimulates the endorphin-producing, and the touch sensitive nerve fibers of the trigeminal nerve. Cefaly purposely increases the production of endorphins and the influx of touch sensitivity - a mechanism called the Gateway Control System – both are increased to the point that they do not leave any space for the influx of pain stimulus. With a higher level of endorphins, the trigger threshold of headaches or migraine pain is altered by partially blocking the entry of migraine pain into the nervous system.
Pain Prevention: A prevention program designed to increases the production of endorphins and raises the trigger threshold of the pain.
No Side effects: Stop depending on pain killers and side effect producing medication. Cefaly can replace or reduce the consumption of painkilling medication, with no side-effects.
Effective pain relief: A Attack program blocks pain and provides relief during attacks.
Reduce Stress: An anti-stress program produces general relaxation and a strong sense of well-being.
IS IT SAFE?
Its safety has been demonstrated in test and clinical studies Cefaly is a patented medical device supported by numerous clinical studies and safety tests.
Clinically studied over 5 years in university hospital pain clinics and in specialist laboratories. Designed and developed in line with a strict risk analysis compliant with international standard ISO 14971 applicable to medical equipment.
Cefaly complies with directive 93/42/EEC pertaining to medical devices and with all associated international IEC standards.
WHO CAN USE CEFALY?
Migraine Headaches affect people of all ages. Cefaly is designed to only to act on physiological mechanisms therefore it is not age dependent, although as added precaution we recommend it only to children over 8 years old.
Cefaly is ideal for pregnant or nursing mothers who have no choice but to stay away from dangerous pain killing medication.

Cefaly does the trick
Posted by Edward on 29th Oct 2015
While it might be a bit early to demonstrate the true benefits of using the Cefaly to treat and prevent my migraines, the early signs are quite positive. I have used Cefaly for a week and have not required to take any analgesia. Before then, I was taking lots of pain killers three times a day to a list control the neurological symptoms of the migraines. I have had botox four times with some relief, but for now I think Cefaly has come in at the right time. I look forward to use this product with virtually no significant side effects. No drowsiness, no weight gain; what more would I like.
I look forward to waking up each morning...

I purchased my Cefaly on Saturday 21st February 2015 and received it the following Wednesday via post . I ordered on ine and also received a phone call the same day and the gentleman went though it all with me, I was very impressed .
I use it every evening and am over the moon with the results I am having.
I have suffered with extreme vertigo for 8 years , it is so severe I feel as though everything around me is spinning out of control and I hang on to the chair or bed for fear of falling. The vertigo brings on migraine thus I get a double whammy and lay on the bed vomiting for hours at a time.
I used to get it two to three times a week but the last couple of years it has been less frequent.
I was waking every morning feeling as though I was going to vomit and very light headed.
Since using the Cefaly I look forward to starting a new day as I have not felt sick once and in that time I have had only one vertigo / migraine day where I used the Cefaly whilst having the attack. I did not vomit and I was up and ready to go within the hour.
For me this has given me a new lease of life and I am eagerly awaiting the 5 packs of Cefaly Electrodes recently ordered , I will always order early in advance in the future as I am now in fear of mine running out.
I thank you for the pleasure I am once again enjoying in my life

THE CEFALY DEVICE DOES DEFINATLEY WORK. WHEN I HAVE DONE MY 20 MINUTES MY HEADACHE IS VERY REDUCED IF NOT GONE ALTOGETHER.

I have been using the Cefaly for only two weeks. In that time I have only had one migraine, which responded to a treatment programme 1 immediately after just 20 mins and no medication was needed. I was pretty amazed. Having suffered frequent severe almost daily migraines I am a happy customer so far. I am using the prevention programme each night without fail. I don't know how long the electrode will last. This could become expensive if they need replacing as often as stated on the brochure. I am really taking good care of it to extend its life. I always want to sleep straight after the relaxing treatment, but have to wake up to carefully store the electrode pad and seal it well.

I have been using Cefaly for the last 6 months and it has given me such relief. I work all day on a computer so I find that i develop a lot of tension headaches due to neck pain, the Cefaly device has soothed my pain and now I rarely get headaches and if I do they are no where near as intense. You do have to build up tolerance to the sensation but I was completely fine with the device after a few days. Best investment, well worth it for headache free life - LITERALLY!

Worth Every Cent
Posted by Unknown on 24th Aug 2013
I saw it on TV and decided it was worth a go, as doing without pain killers would be bliss (the makers are clear that not everyone benefits from them as all headaches are different). Well - I had the beginnings of a migraine this week, and used the cefaly. It looks like you've put your glasses on wrong and stuck them to the middle of your forehead instead of on your nose, it felt like my brains were being churned through a dough maker at the same time as they were being zapped with a cattle prod and then squeezed in a vice - BUT - it worked! Migraine packed its bags and left. Amazing. Doing the happy dance!

I have had migraines for 20 years. I have been using the Cefaly device for three weeks. Twice per day on the second setting (prevention). I have noticed a reduction in both the number and severity of headaches (which I would have daily) as well as migraines. The sensation takes a little bit of getting used to, but after the first session I had no problem with it and it is actually quite relaxing, even on the highest setting. I have also noticed my sinus pain has eased. I would highly recommend this product based on my early experience with the device. I would imagine that it would work best if used consistently (as I have so far) in respect to prevention. The device itself is very light and comfortable.
It Works makes a big Diferance

I constantly suffer from headaches that threaten to turn into full on migraine. Using the cefaly reduces the amount of medication I use for these headaches. I have had only two headaches turn into full migraine in two months but even then they were not as bad.

First time use was scary but I now use it regularly on lowest setting 3.
It cleared up the constant fogginess in my head after 1st time use and my thought process has remained clear since.
I made myself an adapter flexibly wired to another electrode plate on an elastic band that is plugged into the Cefaly socket so I could use it on the side of my head. The immediate effect of removing the constant pressure after so many years in this side area was wonderful.
It might be worth the Cefaly developers to consider marketing something similarly flexible.
