How Hypnotherapy can help Tinnitus

Tinnitus is an extremely debilitating experience that for many people takes over virtually every moment of their life. Tinnitus can be triggered from a physical source (e. g. loud noise) or an emotional source that we may not even remember or recognise.

If you are suffering from tinnitus I don’t need to tell you how uncomfortable the experience is and I had personally suffered from Pulsatile Tinnitus (hearing the sound of your own heartbeat in your ears) for a long time before using my experience as a therapist to virtually eliminate it altogether.

I had, in the past, read how hypnosis could help with tinnitus but felt there were too many gaps in the information presented. At the time this did not convince me that it would necessarily help most people be able to improve their experience on a long term basis. Tinnitus

However one of my favorite points of interest that I have been working for a few years now is the brain’s natural ability to rewire itself. Neuroplasticity. This had regularly helped many of my clients experience powerful relief from pain issues that the medical profession had been unable to help them with.

IMPORTANT. Always check any physical issues with your medical professional first

This brought me to the point of understanding how similar the tinnitus problem was and that the tools to help it were already available. Hypnosis helps the body and mind relax and this is a prerequisite step towards changing the old neural patterns and pathways that have “crowded out” every other response.

Simply the brain has been sending out danger signals that are remaining switched on when the danger is past. Although the body has in fact healed, the old neural pathways are left open. It became obvious that an important part of the therapy would be to encourage the brain to safely switch off the “danger” signals that were no longer needed.

Tinnitus is certainly not something we just have to put up with but it is something, using modern therapy techniques we can, subtly adjust our feelings and relationship with. Many people have found that we do not have to “just live with it”. And now they have the freedom to live without the continual distraction of tinnitus in their heads and in their lives.
