If TV or radio is not providing a good distraction for your tinnitus, use headphones. This fills your aural senses with the musical vibrations and is a great method of canceling out any other noises. Keep the volume of the headphones low, though. The last thing you want is to cause damage to your ear drums.
If you feel slightly strange at the thought of having pins put into your body through acupuncture, give acupressure a try instead! This works the same as acupuncture, but you do not have to worry about having your body stuck with needles.
