Part of the show The Science of Hypnosis

Question

Pauline asked:

Can hypnosis help tinnitus? It was brought on by two very stressful incidents. Tinnitus is when you get noises in the ears and head that you cannot get away from. It sounds like a loud electrical transformer hum and then it will alter to a loud fizz.

Answer

Stress can definitely exacerbate tinnitus and I know because I have tinnitus myself. There is a lot that can be done with hypnosis to allay anxiety and stress reactions. It's definitely worth a try.
