A patient came to my clinic. He had had ringing in the ear before. That had been good after some acupuncture treatments, but it came back.
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.
