A therapist can examine and determine whether there are possibilities for treatment of tinnitus with kinesiology tape, but CrossLinqs can also be applied.

Tinnitus is a form of hearing impairment and a growing problem. Especially young people are affected early on by going to concerts or festivals and listening to loud music with earplugs. However, other causes for tinnitus are known such as various ear disorders, side effects of medication or a symptom of other diseases.In the neck, neck and head region, there are several muscles that can influence tinnitus or headache complaints, which can make the complaints worse. Also, many trigger points occur in this area. A therapist can examine and determine whether there are possibilities for treatment with CureTape®, but CrossLinqs can also be applied to trigger points in this region.

Below, we describe a treatment option with both CureTape® and an application with CrossLinq.

The treatment does not guarantee that the annoying noise will disappear or diminish, but it is worth the effort.

Tinnitus treatment option with CureTape® kinesiology tape

The sternocleidomastoid muscle is an important muscle that can affect tinnitus. This muscle stabilises the head. The area where this muscle runs is very sensitive as nerves and blood vessels run under its surface.

By taping this muscle, it is possible to influence tinnitus. The method has not been scientifically proven, but experienced tapers indicate that it can alleviate symptoms in some clients.

The professional can investigate whether this application could be applied to a client.

Because of the sensitivity, you should not use a stretch when applying the tape and you should remove the tape carefully in case of irritation.

Cut a Y-tape from a strip 2.5 cm wide and measure the length of the tape in the stretched position of the muscle. Apply the tape without stretching with the muscle in stretched position, from the mastoid process and the lateral part of the linea nuchae superior, towards the manubrium sterni, extremitas sternalis claviculae.

This taping application can also be used for other indications such as torticollis, thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) and headaches.

Tinnitus treatment option with CrossLinq

CrossLinqs are non-elastic synthetic grid plasters that can be widely used within a therapeutic treatment. Although the effect of CrossLinqs has not yet been scientifically proven, it has been empirically established that they work very well on:

  • Pain points and trigger points.
  • Influencing meridians.
  • Muscle tone.
  • Joint pain (post-operative, arthrosis, overload).
  • Headaches/migraines.
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
  • Problems with the spinal column.
  • Bruises.
  • Trigger points.
  • Pain management of phybromyalgia patients.
  • Scars.
  • Activation of lymphatic stations.

How does CrossLinq work?

Injuries, pain points and trigger points have a disruptive effect on the body and can cause tissue tension that results in potential differences in skin areas. These areas are strongly “energetically charged”. When removing the CrossLinq from the release paper, the CrossLinq becomes electrostatically charged. The therapist slowly moves the CrossLinq over the affected skin area and where a potential difference is present, the CrossLinq is automatically pulled towards it. At this point the grid plaster is applied. The potential difference in the treated area is eliminated because the self-healing capacity of the body is activated. The accompanying instruction video shows a CrossLinq treatment option for Tinnitus. This method has not been scientifically proven, but professionals indicate that they use this option in practice. Given the complexity of tinnitus, the treatment is not always successful, but for many it is worth a try. This application can of course also be combined with CureTape®.
