Practitioners Group ShotWe believe Sound Therapy is a leading edge technology. Interest and popularity are steadily growing in this exciting area of health, and the Joudry method makes this modality simple, affordable and portable. It is an efficient system to add to existing treatment programs. It enhances your client’s treatment, often speeding results and addressing areas that have proven to be difficult to address with other modalities.

Practitioners are invited to join us in making this modality available by promoting and offering it through their clinics. Our user-friendly information resources make it easy and efficient for you to introduce Sound Therapy to your clients.

Who the training is for

In the fifteen years since Sound Therapy was first introduced to Australia, thousands of people have used the method with success. Rafaele’s mission is to get the therapy into the hands of all those who need it. To achieve this, not one person, but a small army of practitioners and health educators is needed.

A wide range of practitioners come into contact in their daily practice with people who need Sound Therapy. This would include doctors, nurses, dentists, psychologists, healers, counselors, aged care workers, child care workers, teachers, tutors, massage therapists, naturopaths, osteopaths and chiropractors, speech pathologists, audiologists and many others. The training is intended for practitioners such as these who are already in contact with a network of clients and are open to learning about another way in which they can help these clients.

For these practitioners to get the therapy into the hands of their clients they need a certain level of knowledge, confidence and experience in understanding, explaining and supervising the method. The client will have confidence to try something new and conviction to persist with it if their practitioner is confident and knowledgeable about the method.

Joudry Sound Therapy

In the 1980s, Canadian Author, Patricia Joudry, found a way to put the Tomatis therapy on cassette, making it accessible as a portable method that could be used by people in all walks of life and all over the world. Since the release of the Joudry program the list of benefits known to be provided by Sound Therapy has increased due to the convenience and long term treatment made possible by the portable method.

Patricia and Rafaele Joudry’s book, Sound Therapy: Music to recharge your Brain, outlines the discoveries of Dr Tomatis, tells the story of how Patricia’s’ life was transformed by the therapy and the amazing events that led to her developing the portable program. New chapters by Rafaele detail the benefits for many specific conditions and dozens of listeners share their own testimonials. Rafaele Joudry’s second book Triumph Over Tinnitus continues to explore the benefits of Sound Therapy, providing helpful hints and methods for working to improve and overcome the frustrating and often overwhelming syndrome of Tinnitus.

Rafaele’s third book, Why Aren’t I Learning, forms an essential guide for health professionals and parents of children who can benefit from Sound Therapy. The book explores sensory integration therapies and the essential role of Sound Therapy in addressing learning difficulties.

Sound Therapy

Sound Therapy is a listening system which uses high frequency, filtered classical music to rehabilitate the ear and stimulate the brain. It is based on discoveries made fifty years ago by the French ENT specialist, Dr Tomatis. Dr Tomatis combined aspects of medicine, music therapy and psychology to create a unique method with many benefits related to ear and brain functioning.
