Twenty-five patients with diagnosed migraine headaches were randomly assigned to a biofeedback-assisted relaxation therapy group or to a group who relaxed on their own. This study confirmed that the biofeedback trained group significantly decreased pain and medication more than the self-re-lax group. The best responders were those with the more elevated initial cerebral blood flow values and the changes in cerebral blood flow were specific for the middle cerebral artery.
