Finding help for tinnitus might require input from a number of different healthcare professionals and therapists. Your first port of call should always be your local doctor. They will carry out some basic checks to make sure your tinnitus is not a sign of another underlying condition. They might also signpost you to an audiologist or an ENT specialist for some more advanced hearing tests. For some people this is where treatment might stop and therapy can begin. Sometimes a medical cure is not possible and audiological intervention or technological assistance does not go far enough to provide a tinnitus solution. At this point tinnitus therapy can provide some support and an alternative solution.
The following page outlines the Tinnitus Therapies which we offer to complement any ongoing medical treatment.

Psychotherapy for Tinnitus
Our psychotherapy for tinnitus addresses underlying difficulties which you may have as a result of tinnitus or psychological difficulties which may have contributed to the onset of tinnitus. Examples might include: trauma, anxiety, depression and stress.
Cranio-sacral therapy is a very gentle form of osteopathy which can help with a number of tinnitus causes. Causes might include restricted temporal bones, nerve compression, vascular disturbance, congestion in the ear, teeth clenching, TMJ dysfunction and stress factors. Alleviating pressure in these areas can help with tinnitus. One main cause of tinnitus is physical trauma to the skull and neck and cranio-sacral therapy can help with these also. Cranio-sacral therapy for tinnitus also works directly with the nervous system to help reduce stress and calm the system down. This can reduce and stop tinnitus.
