Can Hypnosis help You deal with Tinnitus - Ear Ringing / Noise?*

   

 

tinnitus or ringing in the ears can be helped through Hypnosis NLP in Dallas Fort Worth

Hypnosis is NOT therapy or the practice of medicine.  It IS acting as a motivational coach to teach people the power of using their own minds to replace bad habits and ways of thinking with good, healthy ones.  It can also be used to reduce stress and sleep better which can have a positive impact in helping people to be healthier.  Hypnotists do not diagnose or treat patients.  Hypnosis is complementary to licensed health professionals and not an alternative to them.  Most of my new clients come from other satisfied clients I have worked with.   I appreciate and welcome referrals from Physicians and Mental Health Professionals!  And also from Educators, Coaches, other Hypnotists. 

First let’s make something perfectly clear:

.

I do not “treat” tinnitus.  I am not a medical practitioner or a mental health provider. 

.

What I do offer is Hypnosis to help you lower the focus you may be placing on the ringing / noise that’s been disturbing you for so long.  It’s very similar to the work I do with chronic pain – cancer, injury, post surgery, etc.*

.

Have you ever been doing some work, maybe in your flower garden and when you came in and washed your arms, saw a scratch, and then became aware of the pain?  Or maybe you were playing sports, or rearranging the furniture earlier in the day, and then later that night as you were getting ready for bed noticed a bruise – and then began to feel it? 

.

Now obviously the scratch / bruise happened earlier in the day, but when you became aware of and focused on the scratch or bruise and then you were aware of the pain / discomfort / hurt. 

.

The clients who have come to me for help with tinnitus have told me that when I taught them how to refocus – to be more in control of their awareness, they could lower the volume, and sometimes just almost forget about it to the point it was no longer a problem.* 

.

Now, let’s talk a little about tinnitus. 

.

According to the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects to up to 50 million people in the United States to some degree.  At least 2 million are so badly affected it interferes with their daily activities.   For some people it’s a mild irritation, but for others, it can be disabling and painful.   Michael P. Kilgard, associate professor in the School of behavioral and Brain Sciences at UT Dallas, notes that the U.S. Veterans Administration spends about $1 billion a year on disability payments for tinnitus.
.
Tinnitus is described by different people in different ways – some say it’s a ringing, others a roaring, clicking, buzzing, or other sound they hear in their head.  For some people it’s continuous.   Others say it comes and goes.  The sound may increase or decrease in pitch and may be in just one ear, or sometimes both.   
According to research, Tinnitus may result from a variety of causes, including:
reaction to certain medications
high or low blood pressure
diabetes
exposure to loud noises
damage to the nerve endings in the inner ear
head or neck injury 

.

According to the Mayo Clinic, tinnitus can’t be treated.  But they do say that some people get used to it and notice it less.  I know – not what you wanted to hear. 

.

One of the things the Mayo Clinic recommends to help alleviate the aggravation of tinnitus is to manage your stress. They go on to say that stress can make tinnitus worse and therefore stress management can help to relieve it or lower the intensity. 

.

And what better way to manage stress than through Hypnosis?*
 
 
 
 
 

George came to me for Hypnosis to see if it would help lower the level of tinnitus he was experiencing.* 
He said the ringing was so irritating and the volume was so loud, he couldn’t concentrate at work, he was irritable with his wife, and he just felt constantly tired and didn’t know what to do. 
One of the exercises we did in my office was have him listen – I mean really listen – to the clock ticking in my office and at the same time be aware of his breathing – gentle, easy breathing.  At first he said he couldn’t hear it because the ringing was so loud.  I asked him to listen more quietly.  He thought that was odd, but I could see when he closed his eyes that at first he was focusing so intently that there were wrinkles on his forehead.  
He started to say something, but then stopped, the wrinkles smoothed out.  I could see his breathing became easier, and then he smiled.  I asked him to open his eyes and tell me what he noticed. He said he could actually hear the clock and the reason he smiled is because he heard two clocks!  There was one behind him and another on the wall to his right, but in a place where he couldn’t see it. 
We did some more work in follow up sessions and he told me his stress level was way down.  He was sleeping better.  He was able to focus on work.  He also said his wife and children said he was much easier to get along with. 
As usual, as I tell all my clients, I told him he was the one who did it – all Hypnosis is self Hypnosis.  My job was just to guide him through it and teach him how to do a better job himself of using self Hypnosis. 
Will you get the same results?  Who knows?  Have what you’ve been doing worked?  All I can do is teach you the tools and it’s up to you to use them.
* Results will / may vary from person to person based on your desire to change and your commitment to use the tools / suggestions you are taught.
