Like a gentle massage for the brain, LITHICARE® is an unparalleled drug-free tool for resetting a weary mind, enhancing mood and increasing perception at concurrent clinical and traditional meditative levels
Years of research in Archaeoacoustics have been meshed with new discoveries in Neuroscience to deliver a deeply immersive multi-sensory experience. LITHICARE® uses authentic (non-electronic) sound recorded in an ancient megalithic ritual site which responds acoustically at a frequency clinically shown to affect brain activity.
Music and sounds that give you chills can release Dopamine in the brain. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. Sound in a particular range of resonance frequency has also been shown to shift brain activity from left to right-sided dominance in the prefrontal cortex and an area thought to be related to emotional processing. It has been confirmed that this resonance frequency occurs naturally in the oldest buildings on earth and triggers reaction from the stone. There is credible evidence that the highly developed society of ancient builders deliberately sought the resulting phenomenon for use in their ritual and ceremonial practices, using sound to soothe the human psyche in a deeply spiritual experience. Whatever the acoustics of the site did to benefit them can work the same way today. LITHICARE® replicates the mechanics of that experience.
How does it work?
A simple kit combines hardware and software to deliver a deeply immersive multi-sensory experience, eclipsing historic religious and political traditions, and acting on many levels. If you know how to meditate, the scene is set. If not, all you need to do is relax and listen. Sound, vibration and your imagination do the rest.
LITHICARE® captures the many subtle nuances of lithic sound behavior which are part of its clinical efficacy. Read more

“… It is (also) possible that the development of the Western musical scale could reflect some intrinsic properties of the human brain and mind, and the acoustic properties of Neolithic structures may have been selected to couple into these brain mechanisms, even if the designers of these structures had only an empirical understanding of the phenomenon.”
Dr. Robert Zatorre
Montreal Neurological Institute:
“…the brain can respond to the abstract stimulation of music with feelings of euphoria and craving; the endogenous release of Dopamine in the peak of arousal during music listening… anticipation of an abstract reward can result in Dopamine release within an anatomical pathway distinct from that associated with the peak pleasure itself. These findings help to explain why music is of such high value across all human societies.”

“As our understanding of how the biological processes of the brain evolve, so, it seems, will our ability to harness the properties of our evolutionary and instinctual response to music. . . to mitigate collective disease severity and improve wellness across populations.”

“Here, the deep answer of the resonance changes the personal timbre of the voice and seems to be the sound of Mother Earth or coming from the Other World: worship introduces one to deep levels of consciousness closer to the Divine. The relationship between ancient sanctuaries may be based on a common, universal anthropologic need which appeared independently.”
