What Is Sound Healing?
Just like the food we eat, the sound and vibration we take in has the power to build or diminish our health.
This idea that sound has a healing effect on the body and mind is not new. Since the beginning of time, indigenous cultures around the world have traditionally used sound in healing ceremonies including chanting mantra, drumming and singing.
Many experts say that sound therapy is at the cutting edge of healing. With growing interest in singing bowl sessions, drum circles, bio-field tuning forks and gong baths, it’s well on its way to becoming mainstream like yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
Sound therapy has been shown to help with everything from chronic pain, stress, insomnia, hormone problems, fatigue, depression, and more.
My own personal experience with the gong and chanting sacred mantra in Kundalini yoga have been profoundly transformative giving me a deep sense of well being, mental clarity and personal expansion.
Like other subtle energy modalities, the basis of sound healing is that each part of our bodymind has its own natural resonance; and disease or aliments in the body happen when that resonance get out of tune – whether due to stress, environmental factors etc.
Simply put, all sound therapy relaxes the mind and body, altering brain waves, promoting circulation and energy flow. It leaves you feeling transformed on the physical as well as the mental and emotional level.
