Sound Therapy Listening Foundation Program (Level 1)
The Sound Therapy Listening Foundation program is the starting point for all adult Sound Therapy listeners. The music in this program is gradually filtered to encourage rehabilitation of the auditory system in a gentle and progressive manner.
Launched in 2009, and updated in March 2018, this Level 1 program features specialised modules for brain and learning, stress reduction, peace of mind, and improvement of a range of hearing issues. It has replaced the Sound Therapy Basic Music Kit.
Whether you are a brand new listener or one who has used other Sound Therapy International tapes or CDs, this all new music on a high fidelity format is a perfect start or valuable addition to your listening program.
If you have not used Sound Therapy before and are over 12 years of age, this is the program you need to use, regardless of the specific condition(s) you wish to treat.
Children under 12 can use this program, or you can choose a specific children's starter program which has age-appropriate stories as well as music.
The Listening Foundation program includes:
4 albums of classical music filtered with the Electronic Ear preloaded onto a digital player (currently the "Screen Max 3") in a sturdy carry case with a charging cable, plus a bonus 5th album when purchased through Totally Sound Health / Sound Therapy Perth.
Sound Therapy: Music to Recharge Your Brain book
choice of ear buds or headphones
3 months of technical support
You can optionally add on a charging adapter to plug into your wall (no additional cost for an Australian adapter), and additional earphones suitable for use with Sound Therapy.

Once your program has been dispatched, shipping times will vary depending on your choice of shipping - more details will be available in that part of the check out process, depending on where your program is being sent to.
Unless you choose Airmail, all parcels are sent with tracking. We will let you know what the tracking number is as soon as we are notified of it.
Please note that to ensure we have the latest options available, limited stock is held so we don't get stuck with superceded models. We order what we need at least once a week to minimse delays in getting your program ready for you.

The albums in this program are gradually filtered to encourage opening of the ear in a gentle and progressive manner.
These programs are made using the special Sound Therapy filtering system devised by Dr Tomatis and refined over the last 20 years by Patricia and Rafaele Joudry. The unique activation and filtering of the music renders it into a powerful therapeutic program for the ear and brain. The recordings are carefully transposed from analogue originals in high quality formats ensuring that the integrity of the sound is preserved and the true high frequency harmonics are available to the listener.

Personal support available as needed.
Sound Therapy programs cost 1/10th the price of clinic-based Tomatis treatments or programs such as Neuromonics because you are not paying for a therapist's time. Instead, we give you as many resources as possible to manage your own treatment, with the back-up of professional support for an additional fee if you feel you need it.
If you experience technical problems, free technical support is available via email, or you can book a time for a support call.
Additional, more in-depth professional support is available from qualified Senior Sound Therapist and Audiometric Officer Simone Collins for a fee. Simone is able to take a holistic look at your health and lifestyle, check whether any medications you are on may have ototoxic side effects that you need to be aware of, answer any questions you may have, review your progress (including regular hearing or auditory processing tests, for those in Perth), help you maintain motivation and ensure that any temporary setbacks, technical problems or health questions do not interfere with your listening results.
Simone brings over 15 years of experience as a Sound Therapy consultant together with first-hand experience as a Sound Therapy user, and offers a wealth of knowledge for how to make the most of your program and other changes you can make to reap as much benefit from Sound Therapy as possible.
If you would like to discuss your progress over the phone or in person, please make an appointment with Simone. Phone and face-to-face appointments with Simone cost A$25 per 15 minutes.
