The self-help programs contain specially recorded programs that are used to stimulate the brain and re-energize listening capability. Sound Healing methods stimulate the ear by constantly presenting alternating sounds of both high and low tone. This causes re-mapping of the brain, thereby improving hearing and understanding process. The brain also sends signals back to the ear because of which the function of brain is also improved. A feedback loop is also created, which helps in better performance of ear muscles and enhancement of receptor cells.
