In the case of ringing in the ear, I usually retain needles at the points located around the ear in addition to the whole body treatment, and at the end of the treatment, I leave a short needle at one of the points around the ear.
I did the similar treatment on him, but when he came back, he told me that his ear was good for just a few days. So I left a short needle at the different point from the previous treatment, but the result of the treatment was almost the same.
So I decided to leave a tiny ball on a sticker around his hip joint. Hip joint?
When he had come for ringing in the ear previously, it had been difficult to leave a needle around the ear because of the hair, so I had tried to use a point around the hip joint. This point had not been indicated for ringing in the ear, but I just had felt like it could be effective for the ear. And actually it had worked well.
But I found a good needle which could stay even in the hair so that I started to use the needle in the hair instead of the hip joint point.
He came back again in a week and this time he told me he didn’t notice ringing in the ear so much.
Hip joint for ringing in the ear?
Acupuncture is interesting.
