Tinnitus is a common problem (affecting about 1 in 5 people), and can be a symptom of an underlying condition such as age-related hearing loss, ear injury, or a circulatory system disorder.
Characterized by a ringing, buzzing or constant noise in the ears, tinnitus can be extremely bothersome.
Although not usually a sign of something more serious, it can worsen with age and become increasingly annoying and stressful.
Some treatments seek to mask the noise, such as turning on a fan or hairdryer until the tinnitus subsides. But a far more effective treatment is the use of brainwave entrainment
In a study published in the Hearing Journal, a 3-month trial showed a reduction in the degree of tinnitus disturbance in 26 patients using binaural beats music.
The mean disturbance rating was reduced considerably, from 5.81 to 3.06.
The significant success of the participants in lowering their level of subjective tinnitus severity in such a short time supports the effectiveness of binaural beats in reducing tinnitus symptoms.
Based on this research, and our existing knowledge of improving wellbeing through sound, we have created a natural, effective, and affordable sound therapy solution for tinnitus sufferers.
How Tinnitus Relief Works
The music works in a similar but more powerful way to recommendations made by the British Tinnitus Association, which include relaxation therapy or listening to a ticking clock or a fan.
Using a process called ‘frequency following response', we use Theta frequency waves to entrain your brain to a state of deep relaxation.
Simultaneously, the tone of the binaural beat and purposefully chosen sound design, create an audible distraction that releases the brain's preoccupation with ringing/ buzzing in the ears.
The Tinnitus Relief pack contains two downloads that both use the same frequency of Theta waves but with different approaches.
The first uses a sound composition of rain, combined with complementary subtle ambient sounds. The second uses a composition of gentle sea waves brushing the shore.
You should experiment with both and see which one works better for you, though many users find both effective and use them interchangeably.
The compositions used on these tracks are purposefully minimal and low fidelity in design, helping to relax the brain and enable it to follow along with the frequency of the binaural beats.
We deliberately avoid the use of high-pitched sounds because the majority of people who suffer from tinnitus experience ringing or similar noises at high frequencies, and such noises can act as a trigger.
95% of our users with tinnitus find our music an effective management tool. The majority also find that regular use results in fewer episodes of tinnitus.
How to Use Tinnitus Relief
The Tinnitus Relief pack can be downloaded immediately. We provide 30-minute and 1-hour versions of the two tracks, so that you can benefit from a longer-play version, should you need it.
Our Tinnitus Relief music can be used anywhere at any time, whether you are experiencing symptoms or as a preventative method.
You can even listen along while you work, for example on a computer or when reading a book. However, the Theta frequencies evoke a state of relaxation and you may find that you prefer to sit or lie down with your eyes closed.
The use of rain and sea waves ambience is deeply relaxing, and therefore the tracks can also be used for general relaxation and sleep purposes, too.
Simply slip on your headphones, relax, and press play.
Please note: Do not drive or operate machinery while listening to this program, as you may be deeply relaxed and therefore distracted.
