Therapeutic Listening

Therapeutic listening and Samonas Sound Therapy is a program utilizing sound simulation through music. Electronically filtered CD’s are heard through high quality head phones on a portable CD player. These CD’s are designed to directly target both the auditory (hearing) and the vestibular (sense of movement and body awareness) systems. Sound training can be a powerful tool not only affecting the auditory/vestibular system, but also having an impact on other areas of the brain. Bone conduction listening may be recommended for some individuals in the clinic setting.
