There is no cure for Tinnitus, but there are counseling strategies and sound therapy approaches that have been shown to help many people.
Types of Therapy
Sounds are used to cover up, or mask, the tinnitus. This distracts your brain and helps you “tune out” the ringing in your ears. Electronic devices that produce white noise, air conditioners, fans, soft music, etc. can all be employed.
Counseling, sleep and cognitive behavioral or relaxation methods can be practical in helping you manage your tinnitus symptoms by reducing the stress, anxiety and sleeplessness that are often associated with tinnitus. Our providers teach methods to help you manage your tinnitus symptoms.
How Therapy Works
Consult your ENT physician and schedule an office visit and hearing evaluation.
Attend our Group Education Session. This is a 1.5-hour group appointment that will review the following:
- Description of the hearing mechanism
- Common reactions
- Options for management
- Summary of further counseling options
Please bring your hearing test results with you to this appointment.
If further counseling is desired after the group education session, you can continue with:
- Individual evaluation session
- Individual counseling treatment
- Hearing aid consult and sound masking treatment
