I wish to thank all the tinnitus people I have worked with for providing a constant challenge and a source of inspiration. You have taught me what helps let go of tinnitus, and also what is not helpful. Now I can share this experience with others.
I would also like to thank the Craniosacral Therapy and Core Process Psychotherapy community for teaching me how to be well and let go at a deep level. It is your support, education and deep sensitivity that has opened up a whole new world of well-being for me where tinnitus cannot survive.
Finally, thank you Mario Petrucci, Biggles and Frank Steffenhagen for your keen writer’s eye, encouragement and help with editing.
