Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

Tinnitus is often described as a noise in the head, interestingly the word is taken from the Latin word 'tinnire' which means ringing or a tinkling bell. However, my clients who suffered from tinnitus have more frequently described the 'noise' in their head as a continuous loud buzzing, droning, whispering, humming or whistling. The sounds are more audible, seem louder and are more of a problem when it's quiet, or when they are trying to go to sleep.

Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

According to The British Tinnitus Association, Tinnitus affects 10% of the population of the United Kingdom permanently and affects millions across the world. Tinnitus is the most common injury arising from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and another alarming fact states that 75% of 18 to 30 year-olds who go to nightclubs and concerts may experience temporary tinnitus. It is obvious, therefore that many are in need of both emotional and practical support.

Orthodox medicine describes Tinnitus as a condition that can result from a wide range of underlying causes, which include neurological damage, ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies, wax build-up and more commonly, exposure to loud sounds. Although Doctors may tell their patients that “nothing can be done to alleviate it” and to “go away and live with it” because there is no known cure, sound therapy is now recognized as an important part of tinnitus management.

Scientific research into neurophysiology is currently exploring how tinnitus is generated in the brain and is using scientifically chosen electronic tones to disrupt the tinnitus, the aim being to mask and decrease the intensity of the sound. Electronic sound generators have been patented to mask the tinnitus; according to the literature this doesn't eradicate the problem but allows sufferers to adapt to their tinnitus over time. Other forms of therapy include sound enrichment, which fills the head with therapeutic sounds such as the lapping of waves on the sea shore; this distracts the brain to a new focus of sound and again helps to mask the tinnitus.

Having studied the metaphysics of healing impairment and the links to memory and consciousness, I have found that toning (an ancient method of healing with the voice) offers a successful way of eradicating the symptoms. The toning process reduces tension within the ear and harmonizes vibrations of sound carried to the brain and to the subtle frequencies beyond. A structured and monitored programme of tones and energy alignment, instils a feeling of well-being throughout the body to enhance the process.

My work with voice began over forty years ago when I embarked on my training as a Speech and Language Therapist. This inspired an interest in the mechanics of the ear, the vocal apparatus and the process of listening. Eventually, having become disillusioned by orthodox methods of intervention, I chose to leave after thirty years of experience in a variety of settings. I had a growing interest in metaphysics and sound vibration and there followed a period of Post-Graduate holistic therapy training with Carol Lamb, a well-respected intuitive healer, author and teacher. This enabled me to gain an understanding of the links between communication, hearing impairment, memory and consciousness.

Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

It was here that I received my own experience of direct channelled guidance, through which a system of eight chakra tones and corresponding rainbow colours was demonstrated to me. The guidance indicated that this system would cleanse, balance and strengthen the seven key chakras located along the spine, which link to specific anatomical areas of the body. Chakras are energy centres, which balance and metabolize incoming energy flow, as it is distributed to the organs throughout the body via the meridian network. This chakra toning system became the Rainbow Chakra Tones offered within The Academy of Spiritual Sciences as a powerful and ancient method of healing with the voice. This programme has subsequently been taught to many.

Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

Prior to this profound experience, I knew nothing of toning. As a Speech and Language Specialist coordinating and delivering the area wide service to adults with learning disabilities and children with special needs, I had used my voice to make sounds to stimulate interaction when communication was severely impaired. However, toning was indeed a gift and proved to be a simple yet powerful process, which drew upon the body's inbuilt systems of self-healing, facilitating the release of tension through the positive and focused use of voice.

Exploring further, I discovered the work of Professor Alfred Tomatis, a world renowned pioneer in the field of neurology and psychoacoustics. It was during this research that I obtained evidential proof that the human voice provides the best nourishment for the brain and that chanting and toning has the ability to affect the body and the mind more efficiently than any other form of sound. The process of toning recharges the ear and opens up the neural pathways, increasing stimulation of the auditory cortex.

Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

Through my work as a therapist within the Living Memory Research Trust, my interest in healing with the voice has evolved to enable me to pioneer an innovative self-help approach to heal tinnitus. Through a disciplined meditative process, I receive a sequence of tones, which, if practised within a structured and monitored programme, eradicate the tinnitus. Emotional conflict frequently underlies physical illness, and in addition to boosting the functioning of the immune system, toning releases energy blocks around the heart. The process of toning harmonizes frequencies, sending a pulse of vibration to the heart, which returns a pulse to recharge and open the ear; this harmonization allows connection to intuitive faculties beyond the brain.

Toning releases inner tension and strengthens the muscles, which control the tiny auditory ossicles, three tiny bones in the middle ear. The ossicles transmit sounds from the air to the fluid-filled labyrinth of the inner ear, where they are converted into electrical energy and passed as auditory information to be processed in the cerebral cortex. The higher frequencies are required to charge this area of the brain.

Together with the sequence of tones, I also receive three corresponding vibratory colours from the rainbow spectrum and clients are requested to focus on them when making their tones. This creates a triple helix of colour and sound, which ripples through the body and auric field.

For maximum benefit, the Toning programme requires spinal and energetic alignment. A straight spine holds the head and the vocal mechanism in the correct position for optimum results. An easy to follow three week structured toning programme incorporates the Emerald Alignment, a simple self-help technique to aid relaxation, body posture and subtle energy alignment. This is core teaching within The Academy of Spiritual Sciences, the teaching body of Rainbow Light Foundation.

Accepting personal responsibility is a key element of healing. The programme incorporates a simple routine of brief daily practice of toning and alignment. The success of the treatment is dependent on the client's willingness to follow the toning and alignment programme as directed. By acknowledging and accepting patterns of resistance which may arise, clients begin to make life style changes to support the healing. During the toning period, many clients have been able to resolve a number of longstanding emotional and psychological issues and emerge from the process feeling more confident in all aspects of life.

Case Study Tinnitus

(Resolved after a 12 week period of home practice)

  • 63 year old retired teacher;
  • Daily ongoing tinnitus for 15 years with continuous ear problems;
  • Tinnitus in form of humming/rattling/whirring/ intermittent echoing of own voice;
  • Worse when tired or stressed/sometimes affecting both ears;
  • Recent history of ear infection, inflammation of left ear;
  • Treated with antibiotics.

Secondary Symptoms

  • Client suffered chronic backache and described long standing issues of loss and bereavement and irreconcilable differences.

Session 1

  • Client responded favourably to the first session, describing a sensation of waves of sound going through her body.

6 weeks Toning/Alignment Programme

  • Disciplined home practice with Emerald Alignment.

Session 2: Review

  • Client remembered unresolved past hurts and arguments;
  • Felt the need to reconcile and was able to do this;
  • Back ache disappeared with toning.

Session 3 - 6 week self- help programme.

New Sequence of Tones / Alignment

  • Tinnitus reduced within days, fading over 4 week period;
  • Gradually disappeared, no longer impinging on life;
  • Client felt lighter / more relaxed / laughing.

Toning has historically been used to restore the body to balance and harmony. The throat centre relates to self-expression and toning provides a means of creative expression, releasing tension and anxiety through simple vocal techniques to create specific sounds. Daily practice strengthens the voice, stabilizes the emotions, clears the mind and connects us to the creative, intuitive aspects of the right brain.

Comments from Clients

“Using the programme of tones and colours together with the Emerald Alignment twice a day, eventually led to the complete disappearance of the deeply disturbing tinnitus. It also cleared a number of emotional and psychological longstanding issues; I now am much more confident in all aspects of my life. It is interesting to note that everyone around me notices the change in me. “

“I don't think anything beats the human voice”

“The tinnitus vanished”
