You've probably experienced sound healing in the form of music. Perhaps you heard a song that transformed your mood or enhanced how you felt. Sound is compelling and can improve our health, frame of mind, and overall well-being. When we understand this, we can use sound to enhance the quality of our lives.
"Sound healing is the deliberate use of audible and inaudible sound waves and vibrational frequencies to improve health and wellbeing."
Sound has been used as a healing method for centuries across a wide range of ancestral traditions. The didgeridoo, Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, drumming, and chanting are just a few examples of ancient tools that are still used today in many alternative healing modalities.
Sound waves are Veritable Energy, meaning they can be observed and measured, just like an MRI, Laser Eye Surgery, or Cardiac Pacemakers. The measurement of sound vibrations has been shown to impact the body's natural frequencies, which is the theory Sound Healing is based on.
So just what does Sound Healing do to our bodies? Let's explore how it effects our brain.
"Brainwaves are electromagnetic waves that are produced by the synchronized electrical pulses of large groups of neurons. They are categorized by frequency and each brainwave has an associated brain state."
- Gamma Brainwaves (32-100 Hz) are associated with heightened perception and problem-solving.
- Beta Brainwaves (13-32 Hz) are associated with alert attention and active thinking.
- Alpha Brainwaves (8-13 Hz) are associated with physical and mental relaxation.
- Theta Brainwaves (4-8 Hz) are associated with reduced consciousness like daydreaming and are also observed while dreaming in sleep.
- Delta Brainwaves (.5-4 Hz) are associated with deep sleep.
Sound Healing uses multiple instruments and tools that radiant these frequencies, having a direct effect by rewiring the brain and body. Benefiting....
