A tinnitus treatment option called Neuromonics uses specially formulated music which works through both a masking technique and breaking the loop with the emotional area of the brain to reduce the stress associated with the tinnitus. There can also an element of counselling involved to further assist with breaking the loop within the limbic system. This has found to be very effective for severe tinnitus which is neurological in nature or if there is no significant hearing loss present. However, it should be remembered that it still does not treat the hearing loss which may be causing the tinnitus.
Clarity’s Neuromonics program is one of the most affordable available and can consist of either purchasing your treatment device and then pay per consultation appointments for the counselling needed. Or alternatively, you can choose to have unlimited rehabilitation consultations.
There are three treatment device options with Neuromonics: Oasis, Haven and Sanctuary.
The Neuromonics Oasis treatment for tinnitus has brought significant relief to 96% of the patients in the program. This is not Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) but a breakthrough in tinnitus treatment.
The next-generation Neuromonics Oasis™ is an FDA-cleared, patented and clinically proven medical device with documented long-term relief of tinnitus. Neuromonics Oasis is prescribed and programmed by a trained Audiologist to specifically match either your hearing loss or tinnitus frequency percept. It resembles a small, digital consumer music player. The Oasis works with a Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment (NTT) program which treats the underlying causes of tinnitus, helps the brain overcome the initial damage caused to the auditory system and reduces the brain’s interpretation of tinnitus sounds as harmful.
The Haven® is an on-demand, customized tinnitus treatment that can bring tinnitus relief – immediately in many cases. An audiologist must prescribe and program this Neuromonics device specifically for each individual. Ask your audiologist or ENT for more information about this breakthrough tinnitus treatment.
The Haven™ provides personally tuned tinnitus relief you expect from Neuromonics with on-demand use when you need tinnitus relief.
The Haven is available by prescription and is programmed by your audiologist. It’s not a masking device or a re-training tool. The Haven’s customised tinnitus treatment promotes new neural connections in your brain’s hearing and limbic system to filter out the tinnitus signal.
Those who can benefit:
For those needing on-demand immediate relief from the ringing in their ears have an option: the Sanctuary™ from Neuromonics.
The Sanctuary functions much like digital consumer music players and fits easily into patients’ lifestyles. The Sanctuary blends high-frequency signals with music to provide on-demand and on-the-go relief to the sufferer.
The Sanctuary is designed for situational relief. In contrast, the Neuromonics Oasis device is a long-term treatment program.
Those who can benefit:
With the Sanctuary, tinnitus sufferers choose from one of three pre-programmed profiles to find the signal that provides the greatest degree of relief from their particular tinnitus symptoms.
