Sound Therapy

What is sound therapy?

This therapy, also known as sound healing, uses sound frequencies to restore balance to the body's different energy frequencies. Practitioners believe that when these frequencies are imbalanced, diseases and ailments— physical, mental, or emotional—affect us. When that happens, practitioners break down music into individual sounds to interact with our own body's frequencies. Once these frequencies interact and synchronise, we experience natural healing. For thousands of years, practitioners in Asia have used this method to promote wellbeing and relaxation. Among the tools they used (and continue to use) are Himalayan singing bowls. These metal bowls look like inverted bells that, when struck, produce rich, sonorous tones. Along with other instruments, these bowls, or standing bells, are said to have powerful healing qualities.

How does it work?

Practitioners use many different sources of sound to carry out their treatment. Aside from the Himalayan singing bowls, they may also use gongs, drums, and bells. Additionally, others have used tuning forks and even the human voice. There are some more unconventional instruments, too, such as rain sticks, chimes, and shakers. The rhythms, tones, and vibrations these instruments create directly interact with the body's vibrations. Once the frequencies of all these sounds match our body's frequencies, the healing begins. Then, balance, harmony, and clarity take place. 


What can you expect from a session?

Before the first session, the practitioner will ask you about your medical history. If you have current medical problems, it would be good to share them, as well. Based on what you say, the practitioner will then determine the course of action to take. They'll choose which instruments to use, as each one produces a different vibration and frequency. Depending on your needs, they may use relaxing or stimulating sounds. For the session, you may be asked to lay on a bed, fully clothed. The practitioner may light scented candles and incense to create a more relaxing atmosphere. Then they may prime your mind for relaxation by taking you through a visualisation exercise. As you go deeper into a relaxed state, the sounds may begin. They will surround you like a warm vibration-filled hug. Clients usually leave a session of sound therapy in a deeply calm and peaceful state.
