On 15/9/07, Channel News Asia reported that Music Therapy can cure tinnitus. (http://www.channelnewsasia.com/cgi-bin/search/search_7days.pl?status=&search=tinnitus&id=300018)
Music therapy is NOT about using headphones and listening to certain prescribed music for x number of hours everyday! The form of treatment for tinnitus in the mentioned CNA report is, in fact, called Neuromonics. Neuromonics is NOT Music Therapy. To date, while Music Therapy may provide effective coping mechanisms to alleviate symptoms, there is no research showing that tinnitus can be “cured” by Music Therapy.
