Just to add more to the mix

I wouldn't totally discount the role of sound and how our bodies
react/process it. A person who has ADHD or a learning disability or
some other neurological disfunction processes sound quite differently
and it can be quite taxing on these individuals. I believe sound in
fact plays a very large role in how the "normal" individual navigates
through his/her everyday dilemmas and stress.

Of course there are always the practitioners who'll do anything for a
buck, but there are also those that have done much research and can
verify their results scientifically.

It may sound "hokey" to some, but seeing how much people with these
disabilities are affected by sound leads me to believe that perhaps
sound effects us more than we realize - and if it can effect us
negatively, than why not also positively?
