Sound Therapy and Sound Healing Results For Different Needs

 

Below is a summary of common sound therapy and sound healing results in research studies when the sounds are listened to for 20-30 minutes, 2-3 times a week, for 30-40 sessions:

  • Memory and Focus – It has been shown that short term memory increases by an average of 11% (including aging adults) when people listen to our focus sound for 30 minutes a day for a month. It is shown that children with ADHD and other learning disabilities can see an increase of over 29%. Ongoing listening helps, and the results happen in under 4 weeks. The more you listen, the more deeply your can change your focus. The focus sound rhythm reminds the listener of the brain rhythm used for focus and memory. You can listen while you work, read, relax, or workout.
  • Pain – Over 20% of adults have chronic pain, and more as we age. Published research on people with chronic pain who used our sound rhythms showed that listening at least twice a week lowered their feelings of pain by an average of 77% after sessions in the first two weeks. When people listen for the first time, they often experience a 50% reduction, and the benefits increase with practice and last for days. You can listen daily as needed, and you practice the rhythms mentally, like music.
  • Anxiety or Depression – Clients can listen to the sounds to relax or fall asleep, or use them to imagine a stressful or traumatic experience being handled in a calmer way. In a hospital study and other studies, anxiety reduced by 58% more than classical music and 86% more than not using any sound or music for meditation or brain training. The same sound patterns used for anxiety significantly lower depression symptoms, since anxiety and depression overlap or develop from each other.
  • Migraines – Around 15-20% of adults get migraines. Migraines are significantly reduced, because users can practice relaxing the intense blood flow in the brain leading to pain.
  • Dementia, Alzheimer’s – Currently, around 15-18% of people over age 65 have either dementia or Alzheimer’s, and 34.6% of people 85 and older have Alzheimer’s. Recent research showed our concentration rhythm removed 37% of plaque that blocks memory in important brain areas for memory in mice with Alzheimer’s after listening for one hour a day. They listened with light pulses in the same rhythm for one week, and the sounds alone are also proven to help people’s memories. The mice brains improved significantly after one week, and people experience differences in weeks and months. Longer treatment will help memory more, because the plaque can return. The same process is continually being researched for people, and is being shown to effect people in similar ways (here is a research study at the National Institute of Health for results with people). The sound rhythms that they used are a part of our service, along with memory testing, and you can share it with family, friends, and your community. Here is an article at the National Institute of Health discussing the sound treatment research for mice with Alzheimer’s.
  • ADHD and Autism – It has been proven that impulsive behavior decreased by more than 30% in 8 year olds with impulsive ADHD by listening to the sound we have for executive functions. Similar changes happen for adults. It has been proven to increase “working memory” by 11% (on average) for typical adults without ADHD, and as much as 29-32% in people with ADHD. There are changes in autism too, with the changes being different for each case. The changes happen when user listens to the sound for focus on this site 2 times a week for at least 12 weeks.
  • Insomnia – If you listen to the sound for sleep before bed, it helps insomnia. It is proven to help deep sleep brain rhythms, and helped decrease insomnia by 68% in research. They make falling asleep and getting into deep sleep easier. People with histories of complex stress especially find the sound helpful, and people who have been sleeping 4-6 hours a night have changed to sleeping 8-9 hours a night in weeks.
  • Tinnitus and Misophonia – You can also use a background sound that increases a brain pattern that lowers ringing in the ears of people with tinnitus by 78% (on average), and the effects last after using the background sound. This same sound rhythm has been shown to lower Misophonia.

  • You can share your membership for free with family members, friends, co-workers, schoolmates, and people you help through your work.
  • A memory and attention test that you can take daily, weekly, monthly, or as often as you want. People who share your subscription can also take it. The free test shows how the test taker’s score compares with people of all ages who have taken the test. They can write down their scores, and track changes as they use the sounds.
  • You can listen to them while working, watching shows, relaxing, reading, or meditating.
