Is Acupuncture for Tinnitus Effective?

Physically, tinnitus is often caused by prolonged exposure to loud noise or damage to the ear or head. Usually you can see results for most conditions right away and when it comes to tinnitus this can be the case with certain patterns.  If you have had an acute case of tinnitus and come in for treatment shortly after it occurs, you are likely to see results sooner.  For those people who are older or have suffered with ringing in the ears for years, you will need to plan for a longer set of treatments before seeing results anchor.   Regardless, you will feel your body’s nervous system reset and feel rejuvenated with each session.

According to thousands of years of Chinese Medicine, tinnitus is a symptom that pops up when there is an imbalance between yin and yang. This imbalance will not only cause Tinnitus but will also trigger dizziness, dry eyes, poor vision, headache, knee or back pain.

The two main organ systems that are responsible for this yin and yang imbalance are the kidney and liver. Acupuncturists will often treat these meridians, or energy lines, to remove the blocked energy and increase function of the ear.  Your masterful acupuncturist at Source Empowered Wellness will ask you questions and do certain diagnostics to see what acupuncture points are appropriate for your individual case.

It is often best to combine acupuncture with herbs.  The most common long-term tinnitus representation is a symptom of some kind of deficiency of the liver and/ or kidneys so supplementing the body with the necessary nutrients will often speed up results.  Results are long-lasting and it is also recommended to come in for monthly tune-ups to maintain balance.
