McMaster is Running A Music Therapy for Tinnitus Study

Written by AudioNotch Team on June 03, 2014

Good news! If you’re in the Hamilton area, McMaster University (my former alma mater) is running a trial of a customized music therapy for tinnitus. Could it be Notched Music Therapy? We’ll have to wait and see!

McMaster University is currently running a study to test if a customized sound therapy can reduce a person’s tinnitus after several months of use. Because everyone’s tinnitus is different, we will provide participants with a customized music-based therapy tailored to their tinnitus. We will also provide participants withtheir own MP3 player and headphones, so that they can listen to the music they receive whenever and wherever they prefer.

To be eligible, you must be between the ages of 18 and 75, have experienced tinnitus for over one year, and be willing to visit McMaster University for an initial tinnitus customization session (parking will be compensated). After this, there would be 3 follow up sessions (on the phone) over a 12-month period.
