The Power of Sound is for everybody with ears. What we hear-and how we process it has a far greater impact on our daily living than we realize.

From the womb to the moment we die we are inescapably surrounded by sound, and what we hear can either energize or deplete our nervous systems.

It is no exaggeration to say that what goes into our ears can harm us or heal us.

The Power of Sound.

In The Power of Sound, iCalmPet co-founder Joshua Leeds explores music and sound as nutrients for the nervous system, and the importance of healthy auditory function. He investigates how noise- or stress-induced auditory dysfunction may result in difficulties in learning, communication, and social interactions, and explains new techniques designed to invigorate auditory skills.

The accompanying CD of psychoacoustically refined classical music provides immediate examples of the benefits of music explained in the book. Readers can experience the effects of a variety of sounds and begin the life-enhancing design of their own soundscapes.

The Power of Sound includes detailed guides for musicians and healthcare professionals.

“A magnificent addition to the growing body of literature devoted to the newly emerging field of sound therapy by an author who has been instrumental in its development and recognition. Insightful, lucid, and engaging, The Power of Sound is the first important book on sound therapy for the twenty-first century.”
— Randall McClellan, Ph.D., author of The Healing Forces of Music

“An indispensable guidebook to a new awareness of sound, and an exceptional resource for personal and professional use. Educators, therapists, and anyone with ears will find Joshua Leeds’s work inspiring and practical as they endeavor to promote learning, performance, and well-being.”
— Sheila Smith Allen, MA, OTR, BCP, Codirector of Pediatric Therapeutics

“Joshua Leeds points to the future for the entire music community – musicians, producers, engineers, composers, and business people. I applaud his generosity in sharing psychoacoustic techniques he has developed and utilized to great effect.”
— Joe Harnell, Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and author of Counterpoint: The Journey of a Music Man

“Our Chihuahua has PTSD from before she came to live with us. I ordered this as well as the separation anxiety one. Both work within minutes to calm her down.

“I own a doggie daycare in Anchorage, Alaska. We average almost one hundred dogs in our facility each day. They are separated into seven classrooms, each room having approximately 12-14 dogs. We have been using the Through A Dog’s Ear series since 2007 and find that they are a key component to keeping our clients active, yet calm in a safe environment. We hear from our clients and the public who walk into our lobby that it sounds like a spa. They cannot believe we have so many dogs in our care given how quiet it is, and our facility has no sound proofing.

Kari Campbell, Anchorage, AK

“When I put the music on, all three of our Labs come into my craft room, find a favorite spot and almost immediately go to sleep….I sometimes play them when a storm is approaching, as we live in Florida and get tropical storms and afternoon storms during hurricane season. They really soothe all of the dogs and the music is enjoyable to me.

Marianne White, Oakland, FL

“The music that I hear is not only calming to animals, but it is also calming to children and adults. It can help anyone or any animal get a good nights sleep. Just listening to it is very calming. You can’t go wrong.”

Emily Boliver, Asheville, NC
