What is Sound Healing?

It is a practice that uses vibrations in the form of Gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, and Tuning forks to relax the emotional and physical well-being. It is believed that sound healing can help relieve anxiety, and sleeping difficulties (insomnia). Sound healers function towards lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, and reducing high respiratory rates.

Sound Healing Techniques?

  1.  Chanting – Chanting is the first step to meditation, and it is the means of maintaining health and well-being. Chanting stabilizes the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, improves circulation, produces endorphins, and aids metabolism. Chanting helps the mind focus, and this does alleviate stress levels. For example, repeating the syllable “om” is often considered an essential mantra in yoga; it fosters profound mental clarity and does promote a sense of connectedness with a higher power.
  2. Humming – As a Regular Practice Humming lifts the spirits, and it clears the head. Humming helps in keeping the sinuses clear and healthy.
  3. Classical Music – Classical music increases the rate of development of the synaptic connections in a person’s mind. It fuels creativity and does address physical ailments like high blood pressure, anxiety, and muscle tension.
  4.  Usage of Tuning Forks –  Initially, Tuning Forks did tune the musical instruments towards attaining the proper pitch. Orthopedists have used tuning forks to detect stress fractures in large bones. Sound therapists use vibrations of the tuning forks to increase the energy towards different body parts they are trying to heal. The good vibes do support relaxation, balance the nervous system, and increase physical energy.
  5.  Application of Singing Bowls & Gong – Sound Bowl can be either a metal or a quartz crystal; a singing bowl does sing when a continuous run is felt-tipped by a mallet around its very edge. When produced, proper rhythms do strike the edge of the bowl; the vibrations and the tones happen to slow down breathing, brain waves, and heart rates, producing a deep sense of calm plus overall well-being.

What are the Benefits of Sound Healing?

  1. Improving organization skills –  The brain is focused, and there is ‘less going’ on in it, this makes taking control of the daily tasks on a whole new level possible. A sound therapy course does help in improving the organizational skills benefitting both work and family life. the brain wave frequency to help focus. This can certainly help in coping with the day-to-day activities; sound therapy can even be used in achieving better athletic performance, for instance.

  2. More of an energy boost : Do feel connected to signals that the brain sends throughout the body. A body under stress feels fatigued, and one of the main organs that affect the stress levels are the ears. Sound therapy feeds the brain with stimulating sounds that motivate the brain to release any latent energy. 

  3. Occurrence of fewer headaches :  Sound therapy is used to receive relief from chronic headaches and migraines. In a way it addresses underlying causes of headaches such as stress and high blood pressure. Adults who have suffered from migraines do get relief from their known symptoms after two weeks of therapy.

  4. Boosts in confidence : Creating new plus positive patterns in the brain with the sound therapy can give a great confidence boost. Taking charge of new challenges is possible and having the confidence to make necessary changes in life is seen.
  5. Improved relationships with others – Too much stress is a major cause of the breakdowns in relationships, in family, workplace, and anywhere else where we interact with others. The stress levels begin to reduce and the ability to focus on strengthening relationships is observed.
  6. Helps to think more clearly – Usage of specific frequencies re-balances the brain function, sound therapy helps to think clearer, and in turn avoid the temptation to rely on self-destructive and addictive habits. A healthy mind happens to promote a healthy body and breaking the cycle of negative thinking and habits makes one enjoy a much calmer plus focused life.


Modes of Sound Healing Sessions

  1. A sound bath – In a sound bath session, you will experience the extended savasana (corpse pose), so lie down and relax comfortably while being bathed in the succinct healing vibrations of sound. 
  2. A private session – Book a private sound healing session with trained practioner who will play instruments such as the Tibetan singing bowls, gongs , tunning fork, drums , etc and can fabulously “bathe” in the sounds. It can be done in group or couple together, or single.
  3. A solo session – Sound healing is available to all and free to practice on its own accord too. It can be done along with humming, chanting, and even singing.

What is it like?

A sound therapy treatment is both a passive and participatory experience. The passive aspect is that you become more relaxed by laying down and slowing your breath. By doing this, you prepare yourself to become the receiver of sound. It’s in this place of stillness that you participate by becoming more open and aware of each sound that comes in. Sound helps create the pathway to this place of stillness the same as a mantra helps you to arrive at the still point of meditation.

Some of the tools I use are voice, drumming, tuning forks and Himalayan singing bowls. It’s important to note that awareness plays a huge role in our own healing. I find that vocal toning is an incredibly powerful practice that gives us the ability to fine-tune our greatest vibrational instrument: our own body. I always encourage clients to incorporate simple, but effective breathing exercises and vocal toning exercises in their daily routine, to help bring a greater sense of balance into their lives.
