Tinnitus Products and Relaxation
Sound Oasis Tinnitus Sounds Therapy System
Do you live on a busy street? Do you work at night and need to sleep during the day? Do you find it difficult to fall asleep at night and friends have suggested a “white noise” machine? Maybe your child has difficulty sleeping, or perhaps you just need to practice mindfulness. This is a great product to help you relax.
Can it help with Tinnitus?
If you suffer from tinnitus, then you most likely know it cannot be cured; only managed. Over the past year or so, Kim has done a series of blogs about Tinnitus: what is it, how is it diagnosed, how it can be managed, and the therapies and treatments we have available at Hears to U, Audiology. One of the blogs talked about Habituation Therapy. This system could help you with habituation.
As previously mentioned, tinnitus cannot be cured. Sadly we cannot make the “ringing, chirping, crickets, aluminum rolling pins” or your internal sound go away. The hope is that we at Hears to U, Audiology can help you find a way to live with it. Habituation is one way. Have you ever walked into a bakery and practically gained pounds on the smells alone? However, by the time you left, the smell was not as powerful. In the case of tinnitus, and what this machine can do, is to add another sound to the environment that will “drown out” the tinnitus sound.
Like other things, tinnitus is bad enough during the day; it is much worse at night. Many people at the clinic have said something like this. It is true. As you are in bed, trying to sleep, there is nothing else to draw your attention away from the sounds. In the same way, pain is often more acute at night.
Perhaps this Sounds Therapy System can help.
The Sound Oasis system has a very high-quality sound and up to 24 different sleep and relaxation sounds. You can download your choices to your own Security Digital (SD) card to get more or request a customized mix from a computer. It will help block out irritating noises and your tinnitus sounds and help you refocus outside your internal noise. It can create a soothing environment to help you fall asleep faster and get higher quality sleep. Then you can feel more alert with enhanced concentration during the day.
The system itself has a backlit alarm clock with brightness control, a chime alarm, and a sleep timer with continuous play or auto-shutoff in 30, 60, or 90 minutes. It comes with an AC adapter but can also run on a standard USB source or batteries. A one-year warranty is also included.
