"Dorinne Davis has written many books that concentrate on
the subjects of hearing and sound. In the well-researched
textbook, Sound Bodies through Sound Therapy, she looks
at the concept of sound being a nutrient for our bodies.
There are 11 detailed and well-planned chapters, each of
which opens with a quote and closes with a useful chapter
synopsis. This book is not so technical that an individual or
patient would find it daunting, yet it is quite thorough and
incorporates both the independent and scientific findings
that a therapist would need to know.
The historical use of music in healing was quite interesting.
Because of our drum business, it was particularly
interesting to read that regular steady rhythms can restore a
normal, healthy pulse, sedating the left brain and allowing
the right brain to be more creative. I was also amazed that
the US Army used music therapy to accelerate healing in
their wounded and ailing during WWII.
Dorinne explains that each living molecule has a vibration
that causes frequency and this is the driving theory behind
using sound as a healing therapy. The author describes the
physics of how sound affects various mediums and why
sound could be used to eradicate cancer and tumors.
According to Dorinne, sound therapy could also be applied
to many medical situations - stroke, autism, fibromyalgia,
chronic fatigue, learning and listening difficulties and even
It was very surprising to learn that 'everyday' environmental
toxins can have such a dramatic effect on brain functions
and hearing. The ear affects so much more than we may
realize, including balance and emotions."
