Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a condition of constant buzzing or ringing in the ears. Loss of hearing may accompany this symptom. Tinnitus often results from repeated exposure to loud noise, certain medications which can damage the inner ear, specific cardiovascular conditions such as an aneurysm, or a concussion or heavy blow to the head. Tinnitus can contribute to loss of sleep, lack of concentration and anxiety.
Acupuncture addresses tinnitus by restoring balance to the acupuncture channels associated with the inner ear in a safe and gentle way, without side effects. Because acupuncture helps to restore mental focus and relieve anxiety, acupuncture also helps to resolve some of the symptoms that accompany tinnitus. Acupuncture Today reports that although science still needs to validate the claims that acupuncture heals tinnitus, “…there is a wealth of anecdotal evidence showing that acupuncture may indeed be an effective way of treating tinnitus.”
In my 30 years of full-time practice, I have seen 30% of the serious cases clear up entirely, and the majority of the remaining patients report a marked improvement. It is my professional opinion that acupuncture effectively heals the neural channels of the ear.
