Traditional Acupuncture Provides Pilot with Welcome Relief from Tinnitus


Glen is a senior pilot with Qantas and has been flying for more than a quarter of a century.

He enjoys robust health, a rewarding career and a loving family.

The only blip on Glenn’s radar is an insidious condition known as Tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

For several years the ringing in Glen’s ears had grown louder and more frequent, disturbing without doubt.

Glenn had sought advice and treatment from several sources including Orthodox Medicine prior to presenting in my clinic earlier this year, the last of his family 4 to have treatment in my clinic.

He has been having regular Traditional Acupuncture treatment throughout the year, depending upon his flight schedule, making the clinic a priority stop upon his return home.

Glen has responded extremely well to treatment and has enjoyed significant respite from the intensity and regularity of the tinnitus, a classic lung deficient constitution, who, as age and occupation have taken their toll, developed a classic symptom of kidney yin deficiency.

On a weekly or biweekly basis Glenn comes in for maintenance, similar to the plains he flies.
