Making SoundCure Serenade tinnitus treatment more affordable

"Peace on earth, and tinnitus relief to all men (and women)"

At The London Tinnitus Treatment Clinic, we want to treat as many people as possible this holiday season - both by treating their tinnitus, and by treating them to a whopping £400 off the price of the SoundCure Serenade: Giving The Gift of Peace - £400 off Soundcure Serenade

The Serenade, normally £2395, is already around half the price of other leading neuromodulation tinnitus treatments out there, but now with the £400 discount it is considerably more affordable, bringing this kind of treatment below the £2,000 mark for the first time on Harley Street.

A Tinnitus Cure: Is it now a reality?

Tinnitus relief for the majority of people

While we can't promise a tinnitus cure to everyone, it is looking like for the majority of people we can provide significant tinnitus suppression in the short term. Over the long term, we are finding that people need to use the treatment less and less frequency as it seems to retrain their brain to produce less tinnitus with regular use.

SoundCure - A sound cure for tinnitus?

I have had some time now to get to know the SoundCure Serenade and what it can do. After being accredited as an expert provider, I had high hopes with my first two clients. I performed the hearing test that is part of the fitting protocol, then went on to do tinnitus pitch matching, tinnitus loudness matching, then threshold, loudness tolerance and loudness growth at the tinnitus pitch. What is interesting is that with both clients, their tinnitus loudness wasn't greatly above their hearing threshold, and this is a pattern that we see over and over again, even with people who have really severe tinnitus.

SoundCure Serenade Switched Off This Ladys Tinnitus

Yesterday I saw a 24 year old lady, "E",  for the second time regarding her tinnitus. She has been suffering tinnitus for nearly six months since a single visit to a nightclub. In the course of this time, although her hearing was normal, she had become more and more troubled by her tinnitus to the point where she would avoid noisy places, even aerobics classes, so as not to exacerbate her tinnitus. I have already commented on the dangers of the high noise levels in nightclubs - you can see that post here: Nightclubs high risk for recreational hearing damage and tinnitus. Read on to find out how her treatment went...

A Great Response To SoundCure Serenade Treatment

Yesterday, I saw John. He has been suffering extreme insomnia for the last six weeks. He had previously been to another tinnitus clinic in London, but he was told that he was not a suitable candidate for their main treatment. It turns out that their device can only treat tinnitus at up to 10 kHz, and unfortunately for John his tinnitus is over 12 kHz.

After performing a hearing test, loudness tolerance testing, and loudness growth testing, I pitch and volume matched his tinnitus at 12.173 kHz and  16 dB SL respectively.

Can't get that tune out of your head? You may have Musical Ear Syndrome.

"I just can't get you out of my head" are the lyrics of a Kylie Minogue song, which as it happens some people find very catchy. But if you can't get a song out of your head, you may have something called Musical Ear Syndrome....

I was clearing out some old boxes recently when I came across a 2012 newspaper clipping about this form of tinnitus. Imagine if you had a song going round and round in your head, as real as if the band were right next to you, but something wasn't quite right about it, and you couldn't quite identify which song it was.

A kind thought to start the week

Mindfulness, one of the treatments offered by The London Tinnitus Treatment Clinic, can be an effective tool to reduce tinnitus distress. It can reduce anxiety, improve mental focus, reduce unwanted thoughts, and over time it can give you a sense of control over your tinnitus as well as other areas of your life. So, what then is this "mindfulness"?

Focussed thought

In common with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness believes that emotions are driven by thoughts. Whereas CBT has only been around since the 1950s, Mindfulness has been around much longer in one form or another. One of the main principles of Mindfulness is focused thinking, with a focus on the present, rather than worrying about the past or anticipating what may or may not happen in the future. This is taught by sitting quietly and focusing on something like the feeling of your breath as you breathe in and out, or repeatedly counting in your head from one to ten each time you breathe out. As someone with tinnitus, you'll probably find it easier to visualise the numbers in your head, but some people focus on the sound of the number being spoken in their head, and some people focus on both the picture of the number as well as the sound it makes.

A very positive tinnitus patient testimonial

This article was recently published in WA Magazine. A tinnitus patient describes how the device turns the volume of her tinnitus down to a 2 on a scale of 1-10. Now, instead of having to leave the TV on all night to drown out her tinnitus, the device helps her get to sleep within ten minutes without the use of any medication. To see whether you can experience the same relief, call us on 0207 467 8473.
