Book Reviews of Sound Bodies through Sound Therapy by Dorinne S. Davis, MA, CCC-A, FAAA
"Sound Bodies Through Sound Therapy is a fascinating and educational read written by an author who is well qualified to write a book about the differences between various sound therapies.
Chapters 1 though 4: contain detailed information about the physics of sound, the body's reaction to sound, the auditory system and processes of this system. Factual and well written, this intricate information is presented in terms a layperson can easily understand.
Chapters 5 through 7: introduce readers to the various methods of sound therapy, their creators, methods and case studies supporting the techniques.
Chapter 8: describes the powers and uses of the voice. This chapter offers medically based, but an understandable introduction to the physiological functioning of the voice. This is an educational as well as interesting chapter.
Chapter 9: discusses BioAcoustics, an explanation of, "This Signature Sound," of an individual and how our unique vocal frequencies affect us.
Chapter 10: ties the various therapies and the physiology of our bodies together and how, "All of the physiological processes in the body are interlinked by a large number of interacting and crisscrossing pathways." Or, the how and why sound therapies and how they may stimulate the voice-ear-brain connections.
Chapter 11 relates real-life success stories of sound therapies.
Although Sound Bodies Through Sound Therapy is a little off the beaten track and may be seen as interest to people involved in the field of medicine only, I found the book worthy of my reading/leisure time.
Most certainly, Sound Bodies Through Sound Therapy will be of interest to any parent who has a child with symptoms or a diagnosis of autism, apraxia, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, hyperlexia, Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD or APD) or learning disorders."
