Habituation is a modern treatment option that has helped many patients find relief from tinnitus. It relies on relaxing sounds during short treatment sessions. Through habituation, our staff will assist you in slowly removing underlying obstacles.
During the session, our staff focuses on teaching you to change the way that you respond to sound. You will learn to react differently physiologically, psychologically, and emotionally.
When these sounds stop bothering you, it will be possible for you to ignore them altogether. However, habituation takes time. You must show a commitment to the treatment option and trust the process.
Patients that stick with habituation tend to see relief in stages. Usually, each day is a bit better than the previous session. Unfortunately, there will occasionally be days that involve two steps forward and one step back. This is okay – it is a normal part of the habituation process.
Long before you reach the finish line, you can expect to start seeing improvements. Most patients have an improved quality of life and report an easier time focusing on normal daily activities after treatment.
