Sound waves wash over us at every moment of our lives. Our sense of hearing is so important, it is the first sense to develop in the womb and the last to leave us when we die. Sound is not only perceived by the ear, we can also experience sound vibrations in the physical body through our skin and tissues. Sound waves travel especially well through water and as the human body is around 70% water, we are wonderful conductors of sound! This is why the harmonic sounds and acoustic vibrations from therapeutic sound tools have the potential to be a powerful healing force.
Sound healing has been widely used throughout the world for thousands of years. It is a form of vibrational energy medicine that helps to balance all aspects of our being – the mind, body, heart and soul. When we’re out of balance, aches, pains, illness and dis-ease occur. I have found that the pure, clear sounds and gentle vibrations of the Tibetan Singing Bowls have the ability to restore natural resonance, activate the body’s ability to heal itself, and bring us back into balance. The holistic fine-tuning of sound healing touches us in a way no other healing modality can!
“The most divine art is that of healing: it must occupy itself with the soul
as much as the body”
Pythagoras, 5th Century BCE.
How does sound healing support the body?
Research has shown that every cell, gland and organ of the body emits and absorbs sound at its own unique frequency. Optimal health occurs when we are vibrating in harmony with our natural resonant frequency and ill-health occurs when these vibrations are disrupted. The acoustic energy of sound healing tools have been shown to deeply penetrate the tissues of the body and positively influence the function of the cells. As the sound travels through the body, it naturally absorbs the specific frequencies it needs for healing, clearing blockages and addressing areas of imbalance to restore resonance and health.
How does sound healing support the brain?
Sound Healing can alter brainwave frequency and encourage the brain to match the rhythmic sounds and hamonious frequencies of the Tibetan Singing Bowls. This has the potential to balance both hemispheres of the brain and promote a positive state of consciousness. As the Sound Healing treatment or Sound Bath continues, the brain enters into an Alpha state, commonly experienced between waking and sleeping. In this state, we can become deeply relaxed and begin to release mental stress, anxiety and the relentless chatter of the mind.
Sound Healing benefits people of all ages and has been shown to:
- alleviate headaches
- reduce stress and tension
- gently release suppressed emotions
- balance the autonomic nervous system to reduce fatigue
- improve sleep
- strengthen the immune system
- alleviate digestive problems
- calm inflammation
- relieve pain
- improve circulation
- reduce joint pain and stiffness
- lower blood pressure
- instill a sense of clarity and peace.
Sound Healing with Tibetan Singing Bowls is an energy healing therapy that reduced stress, promotes relaxation and supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Sound Healing practitioners do not diagnose conditions or perform medical treatment, prescribe medicines, or interfere with the treatment of a medical professional. Sound Healing can complement any medical or psychological care but does not take the place of medical care. It is recommended that you see a licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological ailment you may have.
