Tinnitus is a ringing sensation in the ear stimulated by no external sound. It is often deemed a sign or symptom of another kind of condition. There is no known cure for tinnitus. It is such a frustrating sensation that people suffering from it think that there is nothing they can do about it. However, some sufferers have taken to alternative means of treatment for their condition like homeopathic therapies. One of the modalities that fall in this category is acupuncture for the treatment of tinnitus. It is one of the most sought after treatments in the world today.
Acupuncture is actually one of the most important tools of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture is a very powerful treatment that is used as a treatment for dozens of conditions including tinnitus. Chinese medicine practitioners usually combine acupuncture with lifestyle and dietary recommendations and Chinese herbal medicine when addressing tinnitus.
Acupuncture and TCM practitioners believe that inside the body flow a life force known as Chi. Chi flow is what enables the body to function normally. Chi travels along vessels of energy known as the meridians. Sicknesses and pain occur when there is a slowdown or blockage in the flow of chi causing the body systems to malfunction.
Yin and yang are like the negative and positive aspects of chi. Yin represents synovial fluids, mucus, blood and other substances that emolliate and moisten the body. Yang is associated with elimination, digestion, and peristaltic action. Yin and Yang depend on each other to keep the body healthy. Symptoms arise when the balance of these two opposite forces are disrupted.
Tinnitus is a good example of a yin yang imbalance. Sufferers of tinnitus believe that a disharmony exists internally that is evolving gradually. Since acupuncture is a treatment that restores balance in the body, it is an ideal treatment for tinnitus.
One of the advantages of acupuncture is that not only are the symptoms addressed, the underlying cause(s) of the imbalance is also targeted by the treatment. Acupuncture stops the cycle of disharmony so that the body can regain its normal state of health.
Unlike conventional modes of treatment, acupuncture treatment is extremely safe. And even though needles are used for the resolution of conditions, it is considered a painless procedure. People who have a fear of needles may find this treatment scary, but the needles used are extremely thin (ten times thinner than hypodermic needles) and fine that can be inserted into the body with relative ease. The fact is, people who have tried acupuncture have found this treatment very relaxing and soothing.
Acupuncture is a 4,000 year old healing practice that originated in China and has been widely used for the treatment of tinnitus in that country for ages.
