Almost everyone gets the occasional ringing in their ears after exposure to loud noises whether it be at work or socially. Sometimes the trigger is unclear.
About 10% of the population will experience Tinnitus frequently, 5% will experience persistent tinnitus or tinnitus that can be troublesome.
Tinnitus is not a disease or illness but a symptom and can be brought on by mental or physical change and not necessarily related to hearing. It can be due to emotional shocks or loss of hearing.
Most people with tinnitus tend to have quiet background sounds in place, such as having the TV or the radio on to hide the persistent ringing, buzzing or whistling as they find it appears louder if they are sitting somewhere very quiet. This helps create a distraction away from Tinnitus.
How can Hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy is an effective way to help deal with Tinnitus, many people seek help via hypnosis after trying many other options.
Because hypnotherapy is a heightened state of consciousness where the sub-conscious mind is open to positive changes and reprogramming, hypnosis allows access to the parts of the brain that can be triggering these symptoms. Finding the trigger of when the Tinnitus started and dealing with the emotions and feelings related to the condition can help to release or relieve symptoms, it also allows the client to process the sounds and noises allowing them to not notice them as much, zoning out from them so to speak and refocusing them somewhere else. Hypnotherapy can also teach the client how to deal with symptoms in a positive way in the future.
Most people think Tinnitus will never go away, this is actually incorrect, with time most Tinnitus lessens or disappears.
