The patient is 34-year-old female who is a mother of 2 kids.
She has had hearing loss and tinnitus in her left ear for 3 years and tried steroid injections, but they didn’t work. Since a week ago, clogged feeling and low pitch noise have gotten worse. She visited my clinic being afraid that she would have to use a hearing aid for her left ear because she had already been using a hearing aid for her right ear for 14 years.
She consulted two specialists and both of them told her that her ears were crappy and would not be improved.
What I try to do mainly during the sessions is relieving the tenderness around her ears and neck with my finger-pressure, and loosening the skin on the skull especially around the ears.
Ringing in her left ear has gradually decreased and the noise has become like wind and then computer fan, and it has become as low as she doesn’t notice, though it sometimes gets worse when she is tired.
Her right ear that has been using a hearing aid for 14 years also has been improved and she doesn’t need to use the hearing aid anymore, though it sometimes feels clogged and the hearing is weaker than her left ear.
Once she had vertigo and went to the specialist, she was diagnosed as Meniere’s disease, but she hasn’t had vertigo after a few treatments.
She is continuously having acupuncture treatment to improve and stabilize the condition.
When you wake up in the morning and try to get up from the bed, if you have low back pain, it is very disappointing. In that case, please try the following self-care method. Also when you walk, you actually twist your low back a lot. This movement is similar to the movement when you roll over. So if you have low back pain when you walk, please try this self-care. Click the following and watch how to do this self-care method.
Today I want to introduce 2 acupuncture points to improve your neck and low back. I often use these points in the clinic, so some of you may be needled at these points before. You can do this self-care watching TV or so.
Let’s Improve Neck Pain and Low Back Pain within 30 seconds!
One is for neck and shoulder pain tightness. The acupuncture point is called Lung-7. Check the tightness of your neck and press the point. You should feel that your neck has loosened, and you can turn your neck farther than before pressing the point. For detailed method of checking and pressing, watch Video.
Another is for low back pain and tightness. The acupuncture point is called Small Intestine-3. Before pressing the point, bend your body forward and backward to check the flexibility of your low back. After pressing the point, you should be able to bend farther.
This self-care is explained in the video in detail.
Check the video for more information like how to find the points and how to check the neck and back before and after.
Try these 2 methods for stuffy nose. They instantly clear up your nose.
When you have tightness in your neck and shoulders, you might massage or tap the tight area and feel better and you could raise your shoulder higher right after that. Check a minute later how high you can raise your shoulder. It should back to the same height as before massaging or tapping or you can only raise your shoulder lower than before.
So please try the following self-care method. But the most important thing is do it gently. If you can do this self-care gently, you should feel the improvement, but if you do it with strong stimulation, the same thing I talked above happens.
If you already learned this self-care at the clinic, please review where to hold and how gentle you have to apply the stimulation to make better results.
Gentle twisting of your hand loosens and strengthens the neck, shoulder and arm
I often teach my patients this self-care for their homework. This self-care is easy and effective, but if you can't do it gently, it doesn't work. It is important to do this as gentle as you think it seems like not working. It is interesting to check which makes your body better, strong stimulation or light stimulation. This self-care focuses on more neck and shoulder area, but can change the tightness in your low back if you can do it gently.
