|"Because of iLs, I feel less anxious throught daily life, more clear headed. My thought process is less "Foggy" more decisive and deliberate. I also have a great appreciation for classical music! It's great! I believe iLs has helped me develope my listening ear. I hear tones and sounds throughout my day that I didn't pick up before. This has helped me relate to my work a lot better. I am calmer and happier" Julie M. 24 years old -ADHD.Chicago Sound Therapy was founded by Susan L.
