SOUND HEALING OVERVIEW

Sound is all around us, and inside of us. Sound healing uses vibrations to help you reach a meditative frequency.


We respond to it sound as early as 5 months in our mother’s bellies. Most likely, we’ve all weeped or rejoiced to the voices and instruments of our favorite artists, but what many don’t know is the powerful healing property of sound vibrations. 

Sound healing is an ancient meditative practice that uses different musical implements to create healing vibrations around the body in a meditative state. Singing Bowl Therapists, for example, use Quartz crystal bowls and Gongs tuned at strategic frequencies for healing different parts of the body and mind.

This method of sound healing is ancient and sacred in Tibet, where it was first used around the 12th century for meditation and rituals. Other types of Sound Therapy, like vibro-acoustic, guided meditation and neurological music therapy combine frequency and mindfulness therapy to treat conditions like anxiety and depression.

WHAT SCIENCE IS SAYING

Neurological music therapy can be better than prescription drugs in reducing anxiety


A study published in the Trends in Cognitive Sciences reported that neurological music therapy was more effective than prescription drugs in reducing anxiety before surgery. Sound therapy can be used in conjunction with a myriad of other therapies and treatment plans including meditation and complementary cancer care. Dr. Miriam Stoppard studied how incorporating sound therapy consistently improved quality of life and mood in her cancer patients.

Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have recently conducted studies that show a reduction in the effects of Alzheimer’s disease using light and sound therapy. The plaque that causes Alzheimer’s Disease was shown to even be “cleaned” from mice’s brains using these methods.

Imagine if the cure to such a terrible disease was in the hands of musicians this entire time! Science is just discovering this ancient healing art and initial studies are showing incredible results for certain conditions.

WE ASKED TOP SOUND HEALERS WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SOUND HEALING

Italia Woodson -sound healer

WellSet: How can Sound Healing help heal the mind and body?

WOODSEN: Sound Healing helps activate the body’s natural healing system for deep restorative healing on a cellular and emotional level. The harmonizing effect produced by the sound creates a soothing effect throughout the entire body. When different sound vibrations and frequencies are created, it impacts the body and its meridians helping you promote deep relaxation, induce total relaxation, release emotional trauma, and relieve stress and anxiety.

WellSet: What can a client typically expect in a session with a Sound Healer?

WOODSEN: During a sound healing session, various healing instruments, including gongs and crystal singing bowls are used to create a meditative and healing experience for the mind and body. Participants relax by lying down on a mat with their eyes closed while focusing on their breath. The different vibrations and frequencies created heighten the receiver’s awareness and allows their bodies to heal and re-tune from within.

WellSet: What do you love most about being a Sound Healer?

VALLE: I love being able to help people at a level where they can both resonate and understand. Sound is universal, it is a language that can be understood across all cultures and religions. Since the beginning sound has been used for healing; from singing, drumming, to classical music. I feel honored to continue to carry out this ancient healing modality and share it with people, today.

WellSet: What can a client typically expect in a session with a Sound Healer?

VALLE: Typically, a sound healer will work with a client to find what they’re looking to achieve, and working with different frequencies and the chakra system, can help restore harmony and balance back into the client’s physical and energetic body. The client will simply receive and remain open as the sound healer uses different instruments and techniques to “tune” the client.
