Tinnitus is rarely a sign of a serious underlying condition and it can affect people of any age, though it is more common if you are aged over 65. For some people, it may come and go and only be a minor irritation; for others it can be continuous and have a significant impact on everyday life, affecting your concentration and causing problems with sleeping, anxiety and depression.
This recording is based on the idea that your thoughts affect the way you behave and that, by using deep relaxation, you can retrain the way you think to change your behaviour. Stress can make your Tinnitus worse, so relaxation techniques can help to find ways of coping with it, of reducing your anxiety and of enabling you to accept the noises which after a while may become less noticeable. It can just be a matter of becoming so relaxed that you are not worried about the noise and can actually learn to distract yourself and to live without thinking about it.
How To Relieve Tinnitus
IT IS INADVISABLE TO PLAY THIS RECORDING WHILE DRIVING, OPERATING MACHINERY OR EQUIPMENT OF ANY KIND OR WHILE ENGAGED IN ANY OTHER POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY.
Each recording should be played when you are sitting comfortably, somewhere free from any chance of disturbance. If you fall asleep while it is playing, you should start again, preferably sitting up. We recommend that you practise Deep Relaxation once or twice each day until you achieve a feeling of release. The recording should then be put aside for future use as a ‘booster’ if and when required.
Relaxology was devised and developed by Dr Gibson as a method of Deep Relaxation and as an Alternative to medication and anaesthesia. If you are on medication, please be sure to consult your doctor before stopping taking your medication.
