For children we recommend the complete family program with the book.
The music is very non-invasive so you can turn down the volume, and feel free to have it on while you are doing other things. Even if you go into an environment where the Sound Therapy is drowned out by other noise it is still effective. You can even listen to other music or watch TV with it on. Just keep it at low volume and know that it is doing you good!
Rafaele and Patricia Joudry’s first book: Sound Therapy: Music to Recharge your Brain gives a full overview of the history and science and the latest updates on portable Sound Therapy. Rafaele’s second book Triumph Over Tinnitus details how Sound Therapy and many other natural approaches can benefit those with tinnitus, hyperacusis or dizziness.
If you are using Sound Therapy for your children then we recommend Rafaele Joudry’s third book, Why Aren’t I Learning? Which is a complete guide to Sound Therapy and other sensory integration therapies for children.

My ear has been damaged by an accident or surgery and I have no middle ear, or no ear drum. Can Sound Therapy help me?
I have a certain percentage hearing loss in my left ear and a certain percentage in my right ear. (i e 20% and 80%). Will Sound Therapy help me?
No matter what damage your ear has suffered, be it through noise, injury, infection or surgery, if it is still functioning in some way to bring you sound, then perhaps that function can be improved. The reason Sound Therapy may be of benefit in such a range of situations is that it enhances brain plasticity, improving the brain’s response to sound. It also gives a very gentle but specific stimulus to the whole hearing mechanism and auditory pathway. The ear drum is gently massaged, the middle ear muscles are rocked and activated and the cilia and nerve pathways are stimulated with a type of sound and concentrated frequency waves not available from other sources. If your ear is capable of improving, then Sound Therapy is the method most likely to bring about that improvement. As it is impossible to predict in any particular case how much improvement is possible, the only way to really find out is to try it.
Whether you experience tinnitus in your left ear, your right ear on in the middle of your head, you will still use Sound Therapy in the same way. It works on both your ears and some people get improvement first in their right ear, some first in their left. The fact that the music is louder in the right ear does not mean it is working more on the right ear than on the left. The right ear emphasis simply helps the brain to process sound more easily.
To assist with tinnitus we also recommend that you use our Nutrition for the Ear at the same time as Sound Therapy. We do find that people often get better results with tinnitus, as well as an improvement in general well being, if they use the Nutrition for the Ear as well. Please consider adding these products to your listening program. For more detailed information on Nutrition for the ear please see the chapter “Nutrition for the ear” in Rafaele Joudry’s book Triumph Over Tinnitus.
Activation with Electronic Ear keeps the power and variation in tone intact. This process activates the ear muscles and stimulates the entire nervous system.
Progressive filtering reflects the natural sound heard in the womb, where the high frequencies are augmented and brain is energized, gradually training the ear and brain to greater gymnastic and acoustic heights.
Studio Mastering is a vitally important way to retain sound integrity while balancing and fine tuning the whole production.
Playback. This final stage of portable playback technology is now offered on a miniature music player for optimum portability and ease of use.
Our method is about 10% of the cost of the clinical method, and being a self-help method, there is no outside supervision. However, our listeners have the advantage of long term treatment over many years, which for most people vastly enhances the benefits they receive. A full explanation of the difference is given in the book: Sound Therapy: Music to Recharge Your Brain.
Children: Half an hour to an hour a day for six weeks to three months.
After that a maintenance program of 90 minutes per day or a few hours a week is recommended.
For a program specifically designed to suit your own ear and brain health, please refer to the Personal Listening Routine Assessment in the Listeners Workbooks which accompany each program.
To increase the benefits you experience from Sound Therapy and to speed up the results, we also recommend that you use our Nutrition for the Ear. This supports the ear and nervous system to be able to successfully integrate the changes caused by the Sound Therapy.
If you wish to use a different headphone that will be fine, as long as it is of good quality. The most important factor is that they are comfortable and convenient enough that you will use them. If your head phones cause you any pain or discomfort, try another model. Most headphones are adequate for the therapy to work. The mini ear buds that come with the player are fine, as are the light weight headband style or the full sized studio models. In our promotional photos we show a variety of different models as any of them are suitable.
However, it is true that a better headphone will produce a better therapeutic result. We do not recommend using a very cheap model from a ‘remainders’ store. Most reasonable headphones will cost $20.00 or more. It is also true that the more you spend, the better quality you get, and better brands generally produce better sound. The brand we recommend is Sennheiser. Check our website for our favourite models or talk to your personal Sound Therapy Consultant.
Why do you offer advanced programs if most of the benefits of the program can be obtained from the Listening Foundation Program?
Those who use the program longest often report the greatest benefits. It is more enjoyable and also more stimulating for the brain to have a wide range of music so that it does not become too familiar and repetitive. Listeners often report a new level of benefit when they begin with a new program. Sometimes a stubborn condition may not give way on the first level but with renewed and continued listening commitment it may shift when a new program is introduced.
Our listeners each have different reasons for using Sound Therapy and may, after the initial three or more months want to develop more benefits in a particular area, whether that be energy, memory, concentration, hearing, physical performance, deep peace or emotional harmony.
Another way of determining that you are ready to proceed is if you have experienced a breakthrough or change in your hearing, energy or brain function. Once you have experienced a noticeable breakthrough you are ready to move to the next level if you wish, even if you have not completed three months on your current level.
