SOUND HEALING THERAPY
SESSIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE SPRING 2021
Sound healing is the use of sacred instruments or voice to release energetic blockages inducing a state of ease and harmony in the body. Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur). This same concept is utilized in meditation by regulating the breath, but with sound it's the frequency that is the agent which influences the shift.
While sound healing may be considered new age wellness, is hardly a new form of therapy. The ancient Greeks used music to cure mental disorders and throughout history, sound has been used to help people work faster, influence, and boost morale. Many also believe that sound can heal the body. That’s because humans have a natural instinct for sound therapy. Just think about how a favorite song can lift your mood.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
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 that may be used in your session include voice, drumming, gong, crystal singing bowls, crystal pyramids, Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, and more. It's important to note that awareness plays a huge role in our own healing.
