During this period, he developed a rehabilitation program, which included classical medical and new technology approaches. After completing his residency in Neurology in 2007, based at the Neurology Department of St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical Academy, he started his work as a neurologist, specializing primarily in the field of speech and behavioral problems. One year later, he founded a rehabilitation department, in close cooperation with Prognoz Group.

In following years, he added functional diagnostics, psychiatry, and healthcare management to his list of knowledge. He conducted dozens of studies of the efficiency of different rehab methods in Doctrine Clinic (new rehab brand in Prognoz Network), which admits up to 100 new patients each week. He also is a consultant for a few governmental initiatives, and companies with medical equipment and separately leads a business in the field of Medical Investment Consulting. During the global search of Prognoz Group, Advanced Brain Technologies inTime program gained the interest of Dr. Efimov and his colleagues. Subsequently they began scientific studies on the method and based on the results they believe there is great global potential for this and other programs from ABT. Studies on small groups (less than 45 patients) made them believe these programs are well scientifically-based and now Dr. Efimov and Prognoz Group work in very close cooperation with ABT in many aspects including ongoing research and training in Russia.

Utilizing Audio Psycho Phonologies, she provided the Tomatis method of listening training to clients ranging in age from 4 to 90, until 2010.

Yumiko's main focus is to support language acquisition. However, through those fifteen years she also helped professional musicians achieve better performance, young mothers prepare for childbirth, supported students and adults who were interested in peak performance, and helped children with speech and learning difficulties. Through her depth and breadth of experience, in addition to her background as a harp player, she learned the importance of supporting the health and enhancement of the auditory processing system.

Sadly, Dr. Tomatis passed away during that time, and Yumiko decided to explore other ways to support the auditory system through listening training. She became a certified provider of The Listening Program® in 2010, and shortly thereafter became the International Representative in Japan for The Listening Program® family of products.

Yumiko shares Advanced Brain Technologies' mission to make sound brain fitness universally available and is passionate about creating more awareness in Japan of the support that The Listening Program can provide to so many different people.
