To observe the effect of the new Bianshi (stone needle) therapy on migraine.


Eighty cases of migraine were treated by the new Bianshi therapy with the multi-functional fish-shaped stone board. Manipulations such as pushing, scraping and kneading at acupoints were applied on head, neck and back as well as Baihui (GV 20), Shuaigu (GB 8) and Fengchi (GB 20). The intensity of headache and clinical effect before and after the treatment were observed.


The pain score before the treatment was (8.31 +/- 0.61), and (3.90 +/- 0.82) after the treatment. The intensity of pain after the treatment was sighificantly lower than that before the treatment (P < 0.01). The total effective rate of the excessive syndrome [hyperactivity of liver yang and blood stagnation in meridians and collaterals, 100% (40/40)] was better than that of the deficiency syndrome [kidney yin deficiency and qi and blood deficiency, 87.5% (35/40)] (P < 0.05).


The new Bianshi therapy is applicable for treatment of migraine, which has a comparatively ideal clinical effect.
