Hypnotherapy and Tinnitus

Hypnotherapy and Tinnitus

There is an issue which afflicts many people, yet it is hardly discussed. Tinnitus is a persistent ringing in the ear which can be so debilitating that the sufferer can no longer work, or rest properly and it can have a distinct effect on their interpersonal relationships.

Tinnitus is described as sounds that have no external cause. The name comes from the latin tinnire meaning to ring or tinkle. Tinnitus is usually not a symptom of anything more serious, but it is still quite unpleasant for the sufferer. Indeed, most if not all of us have tinnitus symptoms regularly. Non-sufferers will often experience the symptoms at a very quiet point of the day (middle of the night), but then the person is distracted and the symptoms dissipate.

Hypnotherapy is an effective way in helping sufferers to gain control over the symptoms of tinnitus as well as possibly gaining insights as to why the person is experiencing tinnitus. By which I mean, is the tinnitus a symptom of some other psychological issue which if addressed will receive the tinnitus once and for all. Indeed, using hypnosis and visualisation can help the client to turn down the volume of the symptoms. The important thing is that tinnitus suffers can get help and hypnotherapy is an excellent source of that help.
