Tinnitus is difficult to treat successfully because it seems to have so many different causes. However, Bowenwork practitioners have seen significant improvements in a number of clients who have mild and intermittent to severe and long-standing tinnitus.
Bowen is very helpful in relaxing muscle tensions which, if they are tight in the shoulder and neck area, can cause a great deal of strain around the ears and connecting tissues. This is likely to affect the alignment of the head and jaw, as well as the circulation and drainage in the area, making a person’s condition worse. Because Bowen sessions are very relaxing, this can have a positive effect in reducing stress and anxiety levels. As the symptoms of tinnitus are worse when a person is anxious, tired, worried or stressed, anything that can help with relaxation is thought to be beneficial.
