I found this article by Dr. Jan Strydom explaining a simple procedure for temporary tinnitus relief. I am re-posting the article and a video demonstrating the technique. Give it a try… it really does work.
To perform this technique, put the palms of your hands over your ears. The fingers are on the back of the head. The middle fingers point towards each other and are on the base of the skull just above the point where the skull ends. Now lift the index fingers and place them on top of the middle fingers and then snap the index fingers off the middle fingers so that they beat the skull like a drum. In fact, with your hands covering your ears, the sound may be quite loud and may indeed sound like the beating of a drum. Repeat the drumming about 40 to 50 times. Depending on the severity of the condition, one could repeat the technique several times a day.
