- Top 5 Tinnitus Acupressure Points All Acupuncturists use
Want to know how to cure tinnitus with acupressure? It’s not complicated, and you don’t need a Chinese acupuncture degree. Your body contains dozens of pressure points that can cure symptoms like tinnitus ear ringing, head fullness, ear pain, headaches, and respiratory infections. With this handy acupressure point roadmap, even you can access some of the most widely used tinnitusacupressure points for making the ringing in the ears go away for good.
Because Chinese medicine treats the body as a whole organism, rather than treating one symptom at a time, acupressure points that cure tinnitus can be found in all corners of your body- your feet, abdomen, wrist, back, and head all have specific grid points that when triggered will cure whatever ailments are causing your tinnitus.
Acupuncturists use needles to access these powerful pressure points, but you can easily balance your qi (energy) and cure tinnitus in the comfort of your own home by gently massaging the following acupressure zones:
