Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned if acupuncture can cure tinnitus
Even if Tinnitus Acupuncture cures advertise that the discomfort can be relieved, one should be aware that without finding the source of the problem any relief will most probably be temporary. Without a thorough medical examination the best anyone can hope for is a relief of the symptoms and can also expect a relapse if the source of the problem is not adequately addressed. So to actually cure tinnitus you have to find out what is causing the problem to begin with.If the cause cannot be found then the chances of cure are less.
Hope this helps.Take care.
