Natural Hearing Improvement Series
Natural Hearing Improvement Series Level 2
Building Ear-Brain Connections Program Level 2 — Intended for use after 3 months of listening to Level 1, Listening Foundation Program.
In the Building Ear-Brain Connections albums, newly developed recording techniques have been used which are more subtle but also more effective.
The Building Ear Brain Connections program is a marvellous combination of subtle and varied techniques which gently stretches and enhances your ear function in different ways. Each album addresses a different aspect of hearing, working both on the ear itself and the auditory brain pathways.
The Sontegrity Sound Therapy player is light, convenient and durable, and specially engineered to deliver the Sound Therapy high frequency spectrum. It comes preloaded with six hours of progressively filtered Sound Therapy music. The unique activation and filtering of the music, based on the ground breaking techniques developed by Dr Tomatis, delivers a powerful therapeutic program for the ears and brain.
This program consists of 4 albums, each approximately 80 to 90 minutes in length
Album 1 Calming the Ear
Bodin de Boismortier Sonatas for Bassoon & Continuo.
This album contains frequencies that are soothing and will gently massage the ear while encouraging more responsiveness in a particular frequency range.
This album can be used repeatedly by anyone who may have difficulty adjusting to Sound Therapy or is having an adverse reaction such as tinnitus or hyperacusis (sound sensitivity.) It will help to habituate and prepare the ear for the more advanced albums.
Album 2 Opening the Ear
Beethoven Chamber Music for Flute, Mozart Divertimento & Serenade.
Gradually introduces wider tonal fluctuations, giving the ear muscles a gentle workout, while simultaneously enticing the perception, through the auditory cortex, to stretch and open to higher frequencies. When the middle ear opens and becomes receptive to the high frequencies, these frequencies can then stimulate the inner ear and begin to activate the auditory neural pathways. This album is one of the most important steps in the program to prepare you to benefit from the albums that follow.
Album 3 Listening Clarity
Mozart, concertos for Clarinet, flute and Harp, Quartets for flute and strings, Dupuy Quintet for Bassoon and strings.
This music draws the listeners attention with beautiful melodies while gently increasing the range of perception of tones and frequencies. This album will assist you to hear more clearly in difficult situations and background noise.
Album 4 Visualisation to Reduce Stress
Read by Rafaele Joudry. Gluck: Orphee et Eurydice, Boccherini Guitar Quintet, Haydn Guitar Quartet, Vivaldi Concerto Excerpts, Bach Concerto, Largo.
This Album is an important part of auditory healing. It applies the techniques of cognitive retraining to alter the role your conscious and unconscious mind play in stress or tinnitus. A 15 minute visualisation is followed by exquisite and calming Sound Therapy music.

Listener Support Program for Building Ear-Brain Connections
When you embark on a new Sound Therapy program it is helpful to have additional listening tips and reminders along the way. Our Audio Activation Listener Support Program delivers emails for your first three months, tailored to the issues and questions usually experienced by people on this program.
Natural Hearing Improvement requires adaptation on several levels: cognitive, emotional and physical. The interactive processes presented at the right stage of your listening will assist these important changes.
This program keeps you linked in with the different treatment options and supportive exercises you can do. It introduces other forms of sensory stimulation or the latest visualisation techniques to further enhance your Sound Therapy listening.
