Tinnitus Sound Therapy

Tinnitus is experienced as ear ringing, ears buzzing or in one ear or both. It can manifest as one noise or several and can change in character and volume depending on what you are doing regarding stresss levels and posture. Utilising sound as a way to destress and mask symptoms can provide a temporary, medium or long term solution for tinnitus symptoms. Distracting attention away from tinnitus by way of music you love or a more neutral sound like white noise can be beneficial for relaxation.

Tinnitus sound therapy covers a wide variety of different ways sound can be used to mask tinnitus. Tinnitus sound therapy can be used to mask tinnitus for relaxation purposes or as part of tinnitus retraining therapy. Tinnitus sound therapy as part of tinnitus retraining therapy uses a focused approach to masking tinnitus to change a negative response to tinnitus into a neutral one.

Tinnitus sound therapy has its place in tinnitus management and can provide a much needed rest-bite from tinnitus symptoms. Complete tinnitus masking might provide tinnitus relief and partial masking might form mart of tinnitus retraining therapy. The goal for tinnitus retraining therapy is tinnitus habituation.
