Tinnitus and Sound Therapy
Science has now shown that remapping the auditory pathways using the stimulation of sound can alleviate tinnitus
What is tinnitus?
The term ‘tinnitus’ simply means ringing (or noise) in the ears. The condition affects about 20% of the population and can be distressing and debilitating if it becomes severe.
Mild tinnitus is also annoying and it’s better to treat it than just ignore it. In fact, the earlier you treat it, the better your chance of success.
Tinnitus can take the form of any type of phantom noise, such as ringing, buzzing, rushing, roaring or clanging. For many sufferers, tinnitus interferes with sleep, makes socialising difficult, and may cause isolation and depression. You may feel as though no one understands what you are going through, as tinnitus is invisible and it’s hard for others to understand it’s impact.
But please take heart. You have found this page and are about to learn about a proven treatment that is affordable and accessible, which has brought relief to many thousands of tinnitus sufferers.

What causes tinnitus?
There are various theories about what produces the experience of tinnitus. Some of the most accepted ones are as follows:
- Hyperactive brain cells repeatedly firing to produce the experience of sound
- Damage to the sensory cells in the inner ear, which receive sound
- Congestion or imbalance of fluid in the inner ear chambers
Common factors which cause tinnitus to develop are: exposure to excessively loud or prolonged noise, injury to the head or ear, certain prescription drugs, ear infections, stress and tension or misalignment of the jaw.
In rare cases, tinnitus can also be caused by an acoustic neuroma, a tumour on the auditory nerve. Your doctor may recommend that you have an MRI to rule this out. Once you have ruled out acoustic neuroma you can start looking for other solutions.
What can you do about it?
When you first have tinnitus it is quite confusing and distressing. You will be looking for answers, but many people are told by their doctors that nothing can be done and you just have to learn to live with it. However, this is no longer the case.
There are some specialised tinnitus clinics which offer treatments such as counselling or a form of sound generator for masking. It’s important to find a treatment that is convenient, affordable and that actually treats the cause of the tinnitus. This is where Sound Therapy comes in.

A real solution you can do at home
Sound Therapy is effective for tinnitus because it remaps the auditory pathways in the brain. The dynamically filtered music progressively activates all parts of the auditory system. This includes the ear drum, the bones and muscles of the middle ear, the tiny receptor cells in the inner ear, the auditory nerve and the auditory cortex in the brain.
Our specific Sound Therapy processing means the sound is actively stimulating and rehabilitating this entire pathway. In addition, our use of classical music means at least ten different brain centres are activated as part of the process.
In this way, Sound Therapy builds many new pathways, enhancing our brain plasticity, so that the repetitive tinnitus signals cease to fire and no longer capture our attention.
