A recent client sent me back to my books and colleagues. How best to support a return to health using the gentle hands on craniosacral therapy to help lessen the overwhelming and chronic condition of tinnitus. Much valuable help was given by Julian Cowan Hill a fellow cranial therapist who has specialized in the field for many years. He gave great advice re hand holds and specific support re encouraging body centered practice be brought into client’s life to help ground and encourage a wider perceptual field around living with this disabling condition.
Lying a client on their side, providing access to the sacrum and cranial base provides the therapist with the tools needed to bring the never ending noise down to bearable levels, to begin to track the noise within one’s own system and by focusing on the mid line almost act as a tuning fork in damping vibrations for the client.
