Tinnitus Retraining Therapy/Tinnitus Habituation Therapy

With the proper mix of counselling and noise generators, tinnitus management can be very effective. Auditory retraining uses sound generators that are set to a level that is below the intensity of the tinnitus (just audible and not masking the tinnitus). When used for an extended period of time, it induces subconscious habituation so that the tinnitus is not perceived as an intrusive or disturbing presence. This method is also effective in reducing hyperacusis or sensitivity to sounds. In some cases, masking of tinnitus can be effective.

Our Audiologist, Mini Gupta, is trained to help you to learn to cope with tinnitus, explore viable treatment/reduction options, or provide you with appropriate referrals.
