      Hey all. I've just discovered that there's a hearing/tinnitus treatment clinic near where I live(Oakville, Ontario, Canada). I called them up today and the receptionist said that the 'treatment', whatever it is, costs $140. I put off on booking an appointment simply because I have no inkling of what this treatment is and if it's worth it. Anybody know what it would be? I checked the website and it doesn't say what it is!

      Whatever the cost is, do you guys think it's worth it? I hear a lot about such 'cures' causing more damage.

      If it's TRT as seen in the ad, the only potential damage it can cause is to your wallet.

      We have a dedicated thread for TRT here:
      https://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/tinnitus-retraining-therapy.43/

      If I were you, I'd call/email the clinic again, and ask them to clarify.

      I presume the lack of an update means he is trying some type of tinnitus therapy. And, indeed, it must be TRT from the links provided. Usually, the first thing an audiologist tells people entering tinnitus treatment is to stay away from the tinnitus boards.

      This is okay, of course, but I wish members who are told this--and decide to stay away-- would tell us and then come back later to say if the therapy worked. :)

      And, though the practitioners appear to be well trained, the website and related pdf just look awful! The clinic definitely needs to rethink how professionals market their services.

      Sorry all, but I haven't yet gone to the clinic. I'm rather nervous about doing so. I've spent the last year and a half coming to terms with the T and am worried that it's all either a lot of snake-oil or it might make things worse.
