Acupuncture appears sometimes effective. In a field where science seems helpless, those whose are suffering from tinnitus are at a certain time left to their own. Each time I pronounced the word Tinnitus in a doctor cabinet I felt his embarrassment and his pressing desire to get rid of an awkward case. On Internet forums dedicated to tinnitus each one exchanged its tricks. Thus during one period I stopped consuming dairy products which (supposedly) could generate deafness problems and thus potentially tinnitus because of the glutamate contained in it. Then, I tried homeopathy in particular Arnica Montana and other products more specifically dedicated to tinnitus. Vitamins were not neglected. A Vitamin and E vitamin gave rather interesting results. In this “I would have tried everything”, I had landed in this Chinese acupuncturist doctor exerting his talents in the 11th district of Paris. The idea of consulting an acupuncturist was trotting in my the head since a long moment, and it is by chance while walking in the street that I had found his address.

Doctor Ming received and treated two customers at the same time in separate rooms. Its cabinet, a small two-room apartment, made about thirty square meters at the maximum. The corridor in the entry which made about five square meters gave on the two main rooms and acted as waiting room. Paperboards were often piled up in the corridor reducing the already rare space intended for the transit of the patients. The part opposite the main door contained besides a stretcher, an office on which collapsed a mountain of papers and files and drugs of any kind. The room was filled, it was really a mess! The meeting started with the application of essential oil on the face and at the entrance of nostrils. Then, pins were affixed at various places of the body.
