Sound Therapy for tinnitus Using Sound And Light

Sound therapy for tinnitus

Jeff Moran (Sound Therapist)
From an early age I have had a relationship with my own tinnitus, the sounds that I hear, be it a variable high pitch, a whooshing, a fizzing and many others that just come and go, like unwanted visitors to my head-space.

Being a Sound Therapist I have been following tinnitus research to understand the issue and to search out a cure for my own tinnitus. So my question was, can sound therapy give tinnitus relief? My findings are that the nearest I have got is ongoing temporary tinnitus relief. This has included the use of  music with embedded frequencies, relaxation music, white noise machines, and light and sound machines.

Various Therapies For Tinnitus

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) which is a combination of CBT (cognitive behavioral training) and a masking device (white noise machine or similar) Again, what I experienced at the clinic.. the main focus is to deal with what is causing you anxiety and relax you, which can ease the sounds. Add to that a masking device, which had a temporary effect but felt too much like going to a regular therapist, especially when you are like me and very little causes you anxiety.  However, in terms of relaxation we have 3 powerful relaxation downloads that can bring the brainwaves down and create a deep state of relaxation that can help.

Relaxation Downloads That Will Calm The Mind And Help With Tinnitus

Sound Machine for tinnitus

White noise generators for tinnitus: Again I have tried several of these and they have given me some relief as they also neutralise some of the inner sounds, a bit like a soprano when she hits a note and the glass smashes, called hitting a sympathetic vibration to take out the tinnitus noises. makes a lot of sense in theory but if you tinnitus is a wide range then the full spectrum white noise machines are best.

I have had a pitch and loudness test done to determine the frequency and amplitute of the sounds. Great in theory but temporary for me, yes, you neutralise the sound, however when the sounds are variable like mine are then its only effective when that specific sound appears. However there is an online service called AudioNotch that I found interesting as their online software enabled me to produce several tones that did neutralise many of the ear sounds.

Tailor-Made Notched Sound Therapy is a tinnitus treatment that lowers the volume of your tinnitus, and in doing so, reduces the pain and distress caused by the disease. There is no miracle tinnitus cure, however Tailor-Made notched sound therapy is a tinnitus treatment that can offer relief. It takes two forms: Tailor-Made Notched Music, or Tailor-Made Notched White Noise.

It is created by taking either music or "white noise", and removing sound energy—"notching it out"—at the same frequency of your tinnitus tone.
