Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom resulting from a range of underlying causes.

When you suffer from tinnitus, you perceive certain sounds that are generated by the nervous system of the ear and brain. The sounds are often characterised as hissing, ringing, buzzing, humming or the like.

Tinnitus is often accompanied by a series of common difficulties such as sleeping problems, irritation, difficulty relaxing, problems focusing on speech and concentration difficulties.

You can learn to manage these difficulties via professional counselling.

How does sound help tinnitus sufferers?

An important element in tinnitus treatment is the use of sound.

Amplified sound from hearing aids, environmental influences, music, or sound from noise generators can help to minimise the contrast between the buzzing or ringing of tinnitus and the surrounding sound environment.

A highly original feature that has been shown in a clinical study to be a promising tool for tinnitus relief is known as Zen. The Zen tones are inspired by the relaxing effect of certain types of music. Zen is available for anyone suffering from tinnitus, with or without hearing loss.
