Tinnitus trick

If you have tinnitus, or ringing in the ear, sometimes you just want some quiet.

There is a simple, effective trick to stop or soften your ears ringing temporarily:

  1. Cover your ears with your palms, thumbs facing down, with some of your fingers touching behind the back of your head.
  2. Keeping your ears covered, repeatedly tap the back of your head with your fingers. You can use your index or middle fingers. Do this with some force for more effectiveness.
  3. Stop after 5 - 10 seconds. You should no longer hear ringing.
