Tinnitus can be a very distressing condition that leads many people to feel anxiety and stress. Hypnotherapy can help tinnitus sufferers by working with their subconscious mind to lessen the effects.
What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus, which most people know as ‘ringing in the ear’, is a condition in which we hear repetitive sound(s) that are inside our own body, rather than on the outside.
Tinnitus is not necessarily just a ringing, but can also be a buzzing, whistling, humming, hissing or pulsing noise. It can cause us to be hypersensitive to sounds, or to be less able to hear. Tinnitus can be organic (caused by a physical issue), or sometimes there is no physical condition or explanation.
It is often linked with anxiety, where people become less able to ignore or filter out certain information, and then the mind becomes ‘tuned into’ it.
Our primitive brain may see this noise as important to our survival and thinks we need to be constantly aware of it – and so it becomes very difficult or impossible to ignore.
How does hypnotherapy work for tinnitus?
Hypnotherapy for Tinnitus can help to calm down the stress response, and therefore lessening the anxiety and helping to ‘tune out’ the unwanted sounds. Or hypnosis can help you cope better and be able to enjoy life even if the sounds remain to some extent.
