      Dont waste your money. Someone touching your head is not a treatment :)

      Self relaxation/awareness training like qi-gong or autogenic training is one thing and it works for many people...but having someone just touch your head because you believe him to have healing powers. Thats not something you need to waste your money on. Hocus pocus.

      Yes, I have tried reiki. It was very relaxing and calming, but I'm afraid it didn't help my tinnitus.

      @Karen @snow86. I suppose when a person uses any type of health treatments and see an improvement in there symptoms they maybe experiencing the placebo effect.

      @Richard zurowski ,

      Yes, I think it is possible that any improvement could be due to a placebo effect. Or, it may depend upon the type of tinnitus one has.

      As for me, I have both hissing tinnitus and pulsatile tinnitus. In the beginning, I was really desperate, and tried a lot of different types of therapy. For me, none of them worked, although they did help me calm down. That was worth a lot in itself, as I was very panicky back then!

      If you do decide to try reiki, I'll be interested in hearing how it works for you.

      Getting tinnitus treated using Reiki is about as probable as getting dead from the five point palm exploding heart technique.

      @Karen . Hi I was just curious on reiki treatment. And wonderd if anybody on this forum had tried it. At the moment I have booked an appointment to have Bowen treatment to see if I can bring the volume down. I get stressed a lot and I think that's what's making my tinnitus seem a lot louder. I'll let you know if this treatment helps.
