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 a 86% success rate to 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 is now operated from the patient’s iPhone or iPad. 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.
