What is Sound Healing?
Sound healing is an ancient form of energy medicine - a vibrational therapy - in which sound and frequency are used to create balance and alignment in our physical body, our chakras, as well as our energy fields.
Sound healing therapies are not new, or new age. In fact, cultures all over the world have used vibrational medicine for thousands of years as a tool for healing, to revitalize the body and elevate the spirit. It not only helps with inducing relaxation, but also has a way of moving through areas of blockage to move stagnant energy, release energy patterns and habits that are no longer serving you, and bring your body, mind and spirit back into alignment.
Singing bowls, gongs, and tingshas are said to recreate the original harmonic frequency and consequently stimulate the body to rediscover its own harmonic frequency. By making the body resonate with the frequencies of the instruments (sympathetic resonance) the body's vibrations are stimulated and amplified. As a result, it is able to tune into and reestablish its own unique frequency.
Moving more and more into the mainstream, sound healing is being accepted as the valid and powerful method to wellness and overall life enhancement that it is and always has been. Today, medical practitioners use sound healing to treat stress, depression, trauma, insomnia, pain and arthritis, and to boost the immune system. As an integrative therapy, sound healing is a natural complement to many alternative medicine practices, such as acupuncture, massage, Reiki, and other body work treatments.
How Does Sound Healing Work?
"Everything in Life is Vibration." - Albert Einstein
Quantum physics confirms that everything is vibration. Disease patterns such as cancer, diabetes, circulation issues, chronic fatigue, depression, anger, PTSD all have vibration. They represent "out of tune" vibrations within the body and its bioenergy field. Stress and negativity creates blockages that cause low energy disturbances and can lead to disease. Sound can shift our energy from low to high, removing the lower frequencies of emotions such as fear, anger, and resentment. The harmonic vibrations produced by therapeutic sound instruments, such as Himalayan singing bowls or gongs, creates a sympathetic resonance that affects the body on a cellular level. These vibrations spread as concentric waves into larger circles through the entire body as the receiver is brought into an alpha or theta state. As a result, blockages, stuck emotions, and tension can be released, allowing for profound personal shifts and healing. All we have to do to support our transformative process is simply surrender to the sounds and vibrations.
Sound healing works through the principles of Entrainment and the Universal Laws of Harmonic Resonance. Vibrational frequencies from singing bowls and gongs can entrain our biological systems to function more homeostatically. It is an interactive dance between them. The vibrational waveforms synchronize/harmonize our energy field. Vibration that is in harmony lifts us up and enhances our life force energy.
Vibrations move atoms into patterns of form. Humans are vibrational beings made up of atoms that are constantly changing form. When using pure conscious intention with various vibrational frequencies, one can reconfigure matter from one form to another. Energy follows intent. Sonic energy is a type of wave that can transmit the healing intention to the recipient. These pure healing intentions can reach all levels of our being.
