Introduction: Acupuncture is a treatment method with a history of about 3000 years and can be used for many ailments, especially in pain treatment. Migraine often affects the young population and is 2-3 times more common in women. Migraine both reduces the quality of life of the person and becomes an economic burden on society.

Case: In this case, we use acupuncture for a 50-year-old female who cannot use oral drugs. After 10 sessions, she had significant relief.

Conclusion: We advise acupuncture in the treatment of migraine, especially for patients with comorbidities, using multiple drugs, or who do not want to use drugs
