Arnadottir TS, Sigurdardottir AK. Is craniosacral therapy effective for migraine? tested with HIT-6 questionnaire. Complement Ther Clin Prac. 2013;19:11-14. 
Physical therapy researchers in Iceland studied the effect of craniosacral therapy (CST) on participants with migraine headache. Participants aged 18 to 50 years were recruited if they had a diagnosis of migraine and reported that they had had 2 or more migraine headaches in the month preceding the study. Participants were allowed to continue their usual activities of daily life and any medications they were taking but were not allowed to have any other form of alternative treatment.
