The aim of the study was to determine the effect of aromatherapy massage on the pain severity and quality of life in patients diagnosed with migraine in addition to medical treatment during an acute migraine attack.
In addition to medical treatments, complementary and supportive therapies are commonly used to cope with pain during a migraine attack. In recent years, aromatherapy through massage has become more common to reduce the severity of pain, make the patient painless and improve the quality of life. Aromatherapy applications are the application of pain relief oil mixtures through massage. Lavender and peppermint essential oils are mostly used in aromatherapy applications to reduce pain. Therefore, a mixture of mint and lavender oil was used in the study.
