about unsplashLearn more about Elizabeth and Sound Medicine®

Dr. Elizabeth Krasnoff, PhD, is a prominent figure in the field of binaural beats as therapy, renowned for her innovative work in sound therapy and therapeutic audio research. Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Krasnoff's journey has taken her across the globe to Russia and across the United States. She currently splits her time between Los Angeles, CA, and New York City, NY.

Dr. Kransnoff earned her doctorate in Transformative Studies, with a focus on Consciousness Studies, from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Her dissertation, "The Effects of Auditory Binaural Beats on Consciousness and the Human Nervous System," supports the transformative effects of sound. Her first pilot study at the California Institute for Human Science (CIHS), where she is on the research faculty, tested her binaural beats formulas, received positive results, and was published in the journals ‘Frontiers in Human Neuroscience’ and ‘Scientific Exploration.’

Dr. Krasnoff's transition from an artistic background to a scientific one was driven by her deep passions for sound, consciousness, and healing. This journey led her to the cutting-edge field of audio frequencies as therapeutic medicine, particularly focusing on her company, Sound Medicine®—a discipline she has helped pioneer, qualifying evidence-based audio formulas as a therapeutic alternative to Western medicine for anxiety, epilepsy, focus, and memory.

In addition, Dr. Krasnoff is a certified HeartMath® Practitioner and Shamanic Practitioner. She earned her MA in Depth Psychology and Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and her BA in English with a concentration in Russian from Boston College, graduating Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude.
