Tinnitus Retaining Therapy (TRT)

TRT is a form of habituation therapy. It uses counseling and sound therapy to end negative reactions to tinnitus perception, and then reduce and eventually end the conscious recognition of it. Frequently, noise generators are used in TRT to provide a background noise level. Counseling attempts to reclassify tinnitus as a neutral non-anxiety provoking signal and sound therapy attempts to weaken the tinnitus related neural activity.
