Samonas stands for Spectrally Activated Music of Optimal NAtural Structure. The Samonas system is a powerful and sophisticated tool for auditory intervention based on the findings and experience of classic music therapy, neurobiological research and understanding of brain functioning.
Samonas combines and represents the knowledge of Nature, Physics of Acoustic Sounds and the development of Psycho-Acoustic Structures relating to all parts of the human organism.
Samonas Sound Therapy comes from the "Klangstudio Lambdoma" of Ingo Steinbach. Steinbach's highly original work should be seen in the tradition of the great Alfred Tomatis, but it extends Tomatis' ideas in several important ways.
Tomatis and Steinbach agree that music's overtones (high-frequency tones that you may not even notice) can profoundly energize and invigorate our ears, brain and total body. But Steinbach stresses the importance of using enjoyable, euphoric, audiophile quality CD recordings, because he found that the brain is more responsive to pleasant sounds.
