Sound therapy can take a number of forms:
- Hearing aids that can generate sounds such as masking noise or fractal tones
- Tinnitus devices such as the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment
Masking noise or fractal musical tones (Widex ZEN) and the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment stimulate the auditory pathways and reduce the hyperactivity in the brain that is associated with tinnitus and hence reduce the perception of tinnitus. Each of these devices uses its own specific and patented sound to manage tinnitus. Our audiologists will advise you on the best solution for your individual needs.
Tinnitus masking noise and Widex ZEN fractal tones are incorporated into hearing aids making them:
- Easy and discreet to use because they are housed in a small, on-the-ear device
- If there is a hearing loss, this can also be addressed with the same device
The Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment uses a small lightweight device with headphones to deliver spectrally modified, precisely designed music embedded with an acoustic neural stimulus, to your ears and brain. We offer different levels of Neuromonics sound therapy depending on your individual needs. We will discuss these options during your tinnitus consultation.
The Oasis device (pictured) is part of one of the most comprehensive Neuromonics treatments that we offer; this treatment uses the Oasis device tailored to your audiological and tinnitus profile combined with a 6-month individualized counselling program to achieve optimal results.
