Sound Healing

December 26, 2010 No Comments

Sound healing is a healing technique that uses sound vibrations to restore, rejuvenate, and harmonize the mind, body and spirit. It involves working with the overall vibrational state of the individual undergoing the healing and includes altering brain wave frequencies.

The Sound Healing Process

Sound has been shown to be able to alter brain wave patterns and create general feelings of relaxation and well being. Anyone familiar with the way music affects mood can relate to this in some way. Music can have have a calming, inspiring, or rejuvenating effect. Healing with sound uses this same sort of process response pattern but is more specifically focused on creating various relaxed or harmonized vibrational states. Often sound of a relaxing or stimulating type is seen to raise the vibrational frequency of an individual on a number of different levels. This goes hand in hand with the ability of sound to alter mood states. Relaxation and well being can be considered both mood and bioeneregtic states. Healing with sound is thus a holistic approach, which means dealing with the whole individual, affecting as it does mental, physical, and spiritual states all together.
The body and consciousness of an individual respond to sound in complete and comprehensive ways, and that is why it is so useful for healing. Sound healing can be used along with specific healing techniques like Reiki healing, or can be used as a healing modality in itself. Some of the sound that is used in healing sessions takes the form of music per se, and other types of healing simply use resonant tones. The latter is the case with the Tibetan singing bowls which are discussed below.

Tibetan singing bowls are ancient instruments that have historically been used in Tibet and many other parts of the Far East for Buddhist meditation and prayer. Many of these bowls are made from bronze or various alloys of bronze. When struck, these bell-like bowls create highly coherent and resonant tones. These tones create greater focus and trigger the relaxation response. The bio-electrical patterns of an individual will tend to fall into harmony with the quiet, resonant sound of the bowls. Tibetan bowls can thus be an effective tool in sound healing, augmenting Reiki healing and other modalities.

Healing and altering consciousness with sound is a fundamental art that has been used for centuries in certain cultural traditions, principally those of the east. Sound healing with Tibetan bowls and with many other tools and approaches is used today to help people set up vibrations of health, restoration, and harmony.

I use music to calm, relax, inspire and motivate me.  I keep percussion instruments on hand and each sound promotes a unique response.  I have chimes all over my room.  I listen to music most all the time.  I also sing and chant and meditate with a Tibetan singing bowl.  This is effective for people of all age groups. Children love to play my instruments and sing and dance and the personal transformation is immediately evident.
