Do certain ordinary sounds have a painful and distressing impact on you?
Is it hard for you to tolerate noise levels that other people find perfectly comfortable?
Hyperacusis is an extreme sensitivity to sound that can make life very difficult for sufferers. It can have many causes, and is often associated with tinnitus (ringing in the ears). If you find that certain sounds ’hurt your ears’, or make you feel sick or dizzy, you should of course consult your doctor and follow their advice on any medical treatment.
Hyperacusis treatment is not just about your ears
Sensitivity to sound is not just a matter of physiology, of how your body works. As with all our senses, there is a psychological element involved in how – and whether – we perceive sound. People who are engrossed in an exciting drama on their TV won’t hear their phone loudly ringing and will roundly deny that you told them dinner was ready.
And the important thing about this psychological variability in our sensory perception is that you can modify it. This, for example, is what happens when surgeons use hypnosis instead of anesthetics in an operation. The hypnosis helps to turn down the patient’s sensitivity to pain so that they can undergo the operation without discomfort – and without any of the side effects of anesthetics.
Hypnosis is a powerful way to modify how you perceive sound
Hyperacusis treatment is an audio hypnosis session developed by psychologists specifically to help people who are over-sensitive to sounds and noise. Hypnosis has been shown to be capable of modulating the level of perceived sound in studies such as this one.
