  • Mindfulness therapy for tinnitus

    Mindfulness Therapy for Tinnitus

    Last night’s Mindfulness for Wellbeing workshop at the Marlow BTA Tinnitus Support Group was very well attended. Held at Help in Hearing’s Marlow practice in Glade Road, the event was presented by Costas Lambropoulos and Dr Charlotte Morris from Paron Mindfulness and also discussed the suitability of mindfulness therapy for tinnitus.

    The workshop took us on a journey of how to cultivate awareness of the present moment. We experienced three different mini meditation practices to give an insight into our own awareness and how we react to what arises in our lives and therefore how to respond.

    Costas trained as a teacher, trainer and supervisor in mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. He also has extensive experience in the NHS where he has been working as a mindfulness teacher, cognitive behavioural therapist and trainer. Charlotte, who also trained at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre is a Counselling Psychologist with an independent practice in Buckinghamshire.

    Mindfulness is not new and is rooted in ancient wisdom and practices. In the last 40 years, there has been a growing interest in whether it can help improve wellbeing, peace and contentment in our often busy and demanding lives.

    Paron are also running another workshop in Marlow, running from 3.30-5.15pm on Saturday 24th November at All Saints Church Hall, Marlow, SL7 2AA. There is an 8-week course starting on 20th October at the Compass theatre in Ickenham. For further details contact: info@paronmindfulness.co.uk

  • Tinnitus management with singing bowls

    Spirit of the Rainbow Talk

    A brief write-up of our August 6th Tinnitus Support Group Event where we discussed alternative methods of tinnitus management.

    A big thank you to Julia Walters and Karen Fielding,  from the Spirit of the Rainbow in Princes Risborough, for a very interesting talk on singing bowls, crystals and other holistic therapies at our Marlow Tinnitus Support Group Meeting last week.

    Thank you also to Donna, one of our group members, for bringing along her singing bowl which produced a comforting low frequency sound, which became our favourite “tune”.

    Singing bowls

    Singing bowls have become popular with music therapists, sound healers and some yoga practitioners, having originally been used by Tibetan monks for healing.

    It is said that they originated from China in the form of “Standing bells”. An early form called Nao took the shape of a stemmed goblet, mounted with a rim and struck on the outside with a mallet. The manufacture and use of bowls specifically for ‘singing’ is believed to be a modern phenomenon. Bowls that were capable of singing began to be imported to the West from around the early 1970s. Since then they have become a popular instrument in the US-originating new-age genre often marketed as ‘Tibetan music’.

    We all agreed that distraction and relaxation can help our Tinnitus and it really was remarkable how soothing it became to focus on circling the mallet around the edge of the bowl, whilst creating an addictive mellow sound and vibration. We enjoyed the demonstration and you can see Kevin and Stuart in the images above, using the singing bowls themselves.

    Himalayan salt lamps

    At the meeting we were also rather taken by Rainbow’s range of Himalayan salt lamps. These absorb water and particles from the air, taking positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it also expels negative ions to help reduce static electricity and cleanse the air. Salt lamps are often used to help with allergy symptoms, help sleep and treat Seasonal Affective Disorder while giving an environmentally-friendly light source.

    If you would like to find out more about how sound, crystals and salt lamps can help you, please do get in touch with Julia or Karen. They are also offering a 30 minute energy/reiki treatment at half price, valid for August only.

    Call 01844 342255 or take a look at the Spirit of the Rainbow website.
