What is Sound Enrichment Therapy?
Some people suffering from tinnitus can benefit from exposure to external sounds such as TV, radio, a sound device, or a tabletop fountain. External sounds can help in different ways and preferences are unique from person to person. Some people might benefit from exposure to a monotonous, non-threatening sound that might reduce the perceived sound level of their tinnitus. Others might find relief from the tension and stress that tinnitus generates by listening to calming and relaxing sounds or music.
Why does Sound Enrichment Therapy work?
Sound therapy can also mask tinnitus by covering it up with noises that contain different frequencies. Sound therapy can also be used to distract a person by drawing attention away from their tinnitus, for example, by listening to an audiobook or television show.
