Sound Healing is a powerful form of vibrational energy healing using Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks and gongs to help balance the 7 chakras. The core concept is that everything is made of vibrating energy and the body is no exception. We all have different frequencies and a specific resonance. When the correct sounds are played around the body, they can cause a sympathetic resonance that can shift and transform the entire system.
It is said that our bodies are 70% water and the most basic way of communication with your cells is through vibration. When tapping on a Tibetan singing bowl, it creates a vibration that resonates with all the water molecules in your physical body. The same is true for all other sound healing instruments. The vibrations produced by these instruments are able to travel deep into the bones, affecting areas you could not reach with your hands.
The sound therapy works through a process called “cymatics,” the study of wave phenomena pioneered by Swiss medical doctor Hans Jenny in the early 1900s. He discovered that inert powders, pastes and liquids animate into life-like patterns that mirror patterns found in nature, art and architecture with the application of simple sine wave vibrations within the audible range. Your own body’s cells are no exception as they will respond to the correct sound waves by creating a dynamic mandala-like pattern within your body and its water molecule.
These harmonic frequencies are called Solfeggio Frequencies. They are specific to each of the seven chakras. They work well synergistically together and have the potential to produce many positive effects such as a sense of calmness, relaxation, stress relief and better sleep.
When you listen to the soothing sounds of these frequencies, your brainwaves slow down to alpha waves. This is known to be a time of optimized learning and performance. Alpha waves also increase your release of important neurotransmitters and hormones such as melatonin, norepinephrine and dopamine.
Sound Healing creates a relaxing rest-and-digest parasympathetic response that helps support your body’s ability to heal itself. It also promotes the production of nitric oxide, an important molecule that enhances circulation, blood flow and cell efficiency and reduces inflammation.
During a Sound Bath, you lay down on your mat or blanket and allow yourself to relax into the vibrations of the sound. Depending on your needs and the type of Sound Healing session you are receiving, it is possible to experience visualizations, receive creative downloads or have an emotional breakthrough.
The benefits of Sound Healing are numerous and the results can be felt immediately. However, like any other alternative modalities or meditative practices, everyone experiences it differently. It is always a good idea to consult your healthcare provider before trying Sound Healing. Pregnant women should avoid having sound instruments placed on their bodies and those with a pacemaker, stent or metal implants should not be exposed to sound waves as they may affect the function of these devices.
