Hypnotherapy for Tinnitus

Hypnotherapy is a modified state of consciousness, which allows the subconscious mind to be more open to selective and positive suggestion. While there is not yet a cure for tinnitus, we are able to decide how to respond to symptoms. It can be very effective in dealing with the psychological aspects of tinnitus, such as anger, stress and anxiety. For more information visit Hypnotherapy Direct
