I have purchased all of Dr Susan Jonas CD’s and listened to them and let my family and friends listen to them. Listening to Dr Jonas voice and CD’s has such a healing and calming effect that at time I felt I want to listen to them again and again and benefit from it each time.
I have used two of the hemi-sync CD’s and my patients have remarked how relaxed and how something seemed a “little different” with this massage. I got into a discussion with them about the music and one stated how many colors she was seeing during the massage, and another remarked having some really clear thoughts at the end of the session. Thank you for recommending them.

AUTHOR
Two Cds and Call Me in the Morning 3rd Edition which includes 2 companion CDs.
The Practitioner's Guide to Vibro Acoustic Therapy.
For over 20 years Dr. Jonas has worked with clients in healthcare, business, and education.
In her book you can learn how music and sound affect us and how they can heal and improve us, no matter the symptom, occupation, place of work, or time of day. The appendix is filled with specific music recommendations for whatever you would like sound to assist, i.e., surgery, creativity, relaxation, digestion, grades, etc. THe two companion CDs are: What is Sound Therapy and Blessings, which was found to be effective at reducing anxiety and increasing spiritual values in a University of Connecticut study. She has numerous articles published in a variety of venues. Many of these can be found on her blog. She has a chapter in the Baylor School of Medicine’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation:
The Definitive Approach on “Music in Rehabilitation”.
Musical Medicine CDs
Dr Jonas’s research into the effects of sounds, music, and imagery on the body has led her to creating many CDs which have been used in a variety of healthcare facilities and clinics. Cardiac Healing and Blessings were used in university studies; Pain Control, Color Magic, Deep Relaxation were formulated and found effective in a hospital Pain Clinic and many other CDs listed below have been tested and verified for effectiveness.
Her Deep Relaxation CD (scripted for stroke and chronic pain) was chosen by National Public Television as a promotional item in 2004. Her latest highly effective CDs incorporate specific frequencies to lessen the effects of various health conditions. Played through headphones, they greatly decrease symptoms. Some of these Healing Tones CDs are: Muscle Ease, Digestion, Fibromyalgia, Spinal Ease, Immunizer+, Bone Healer.
RESEARCHER
SURGERY PATIENTS
Dr. Jonas’s doctoral research [1986] focused on one-day surgery patients listening to music pre, intra, and post operatively. The results showed many benefits including decreased amounts of anesthesia needed, fewer side effects in recovery, and increased satisfaction with the overall surgical experience. The following years the research was continued with surgical patients using the Hemi-Sync Surgical Support Series from the Monroe Institute. These patients all experienced benefits from the use of the tapes including decreased anxiety and pain, shorter hospital stays, and few side effects and complications.
PARKINSON’S DISEASE
This study, conducted by Dr. Jonas, used the Medical Resonance CD for Neurophysiological Disorders to assist in decreasing Parkinson like symptoms [2011]. Results were encouraging for decreasing tremors and improving over all sense of well-being. Many other self reported improvements were noted by the listeners.
Her Parkinson's frequency CD was used in a study by Rush University and found effective especially in decreasing Bradykinesia.
CARDIAC PATIENTS
Dr. Jonas authored a Cardiac Healing CD with the Monroe Institute for a study at the University of Conn. It demonstrated a significant decrease in anxiety in patients who had had heart attacks. Her Blessings CD was recently used in a study at the University of Connecticut with cardiac patients and was found to increase their spiritual values and decrease anxiety.
STROKE PATIENTS
While working in the Weldon Center for Rehabilitation in Springfield MA, Dr. Jonas authored the Deep Relaxation CD for stroke and chronic pain patients that was found to be highly effective in reducing anxiety and low levels of pain. It was given to every patient to assist them in their recovery.
CHRONIC PAIN
An important part of pain management is learning how to relax the body and mind. While working in the Weldon Center Pain Program, Dr. Jonas developed three guided pain management tapes for varying levels of pain. These were found to be very effective by the participants in the program; the tapes not only assisted in decreasing the pain, but also empowered the listener to learn pain management techniques that could be used with a CD. The programs include: Deep Relaxation/Self Healing for lower levels of pain Color Relax for lower and medium levels of pain Pain Control for high levels of pain.
RESPIRATORY RELIEF
Found to reduce heart rate and respiration rate and increase oxygen saturation levels in a hospital study in Novi, MI.
