What is Tinnitus?

A medical condition which causes noises in the ear.

Tinnitus can be annoying and distressing.


What are the symptoms of tinnitus?

Tinnitus is usually described as ‘ringing in the ears’ but the symptoms often take the form of buzzing, hissing or whistling noises. Most commonly the noises are quite high-pitched, but some people experience low rumbling or humming noises. For some people the noises are there all the time, while for others they come and go. Because the symptoms can be worse when people lie down, tinnitus can cause problems with sleep.


Who suffers from tinnitus and what causes it?

Tinnitus can affect people of all ages. Elderly people often notice tinnitus more, but this might be because they spend time alone or without other noises to distract them.

Some doctors say tinnitus is caused by damage to the inner ear. Many people believe it can be started by an extremely loud noise (such as standing too near the speakers at a concert). Doctors often say that it’s a side effect of hearing loss. But there are plenty of people with good hearing who suffer from tinnitus. So overall, nobody knows exactly what causes tinnitus.

Treatment for Tinnitus

Sadly, conventional medicine offers very  little help for people who have tinnitus. Treatment usually takes one of two forms:

  • giving patients a device that makes another noise, to try and mask the tinnitus, or
  • training the patient to try and ignore the tinnitus.

This means that many tinnitus sufferers can feel let down by the medical world. They give up any hope of an end to their problems.

My Holistic Treatment

I offer a holistic treatment for tinnitus. Instead of trying to cover up the tinnitus noise, my aim is to reduce or even stop it. And I’ve been very successful. In fact my clients say that, with regular monthly treatments, they hardly ever suffer from tinnitus. If they do hear the noise, it’s usually much quieter than before.

My tinnitus treatment is a combination of foot reflexology and reflexology of the head and shoulders. It might seem strange to tackle tinnitus by working on the feet. But there are points on the feet that affect the ears. Therefore, by massaging the correct parts of the feet, head and shoulders, I can bring a relief to your tinnitus symptoms.
