Misophonia - Sensitivity To Sound

Sensitivity To Sound: There’s A Name For That…And A Solution

Misophonia is an over-sensitivity to sounds that can trigger feelings of anxiety, anger and fear. Many people suffer from this condition without ever knowing it.

Simple sounds that most people tune out, like the hum of an air conditioner, can become unbearable for those with misophonia. This can severely affect a person’s quality of life by impacting their ability to socialize and function in a public environment.

Misophonia is a brain issue, caused by dysregulation in the areas of the brain that process sound, located right above the ears in the temporal lobes. Currently there are no specific medications for misophonia, but there is another solution that may help.

Neurofeedback is a computer-based system that directly targets brainwaves, regulating them over time to function more efficiently. Over multiple sessions neurofeedback can help correct the areas of the brain that impact hearing and allow one to function normally in louder spaces. Neurofeedback sessions are easy, you just watch a movie while the system does all the work.

Neurofeedback is safe, non-invasive and has decades of qualified research and case studies on many neurological issues.
