Cefaly Dual – innovative therapy for migraine

Outpatient migraine therapy through trans-cranial electrical nervous stimulation (TENS) with Cefaly Dual was launched in Europe in September 2018, Emerald Medical Center being at this time the only medical clinic in Romania to provide this treatment to patients.

HEAD’s UP therapy can be accessed only with a recommendation from the neurologist, in three different packs depending on the duration of use: 3, 6 or 12 months, with follow-up consultations included. It is an FDA-approved therapy and it is already used by more than 200,000 people around the world.

This therapy relieves total pain for a third of the patients and reduces pain intensity significantly in 8 out of 10 patients*.
