Since the beginning of time we have used sound to receive information from our environment, to communicate with each other, and to heal and transform. Ancient cultures and indigenous people around the world believe that sound is the creative, generative force which brought the Universe into being. Modern science tells us that the human body holds a resonance and a certain vibration. Every molecule, cell, tissue, organ, gland, bone and liquid in our bodies has its own specific rate of vibration. They reflect the state of the physical body, but more importantly, the physical body reflects the state of all of our energy bodies - mental, emotional and spiritual.
Sound healing helps dissolve distortions of energy held in the body, while also inviting each cell to resonate at its healthiest vibration and resonance. It uses sympathetic resonance, which is when one vibrating object causes another to vibrate in harmony with it, or match its rate of vibration. The energy bodies respond by shifting the disharmonious energy into resonance of the higher frequency and coherent vibration of the instrument and vocals. The use of various instruments, loving intentions, as well as vocals, sound can dissolve the discord energies while restoring balance and vibrancy to the imbalanced energies within the the body.
Some of the ways that sound promotes healing:
Relieves stress and anxiety
Improves vision (physical, mental and spiritual)
Balances brain hemispheres
Restores the function of the endocrine system by vibrating the pituitary gland
Relieves physical and emotional pain
Induces a deep meditative state
Increases energy through stimulation of the cerebrospinal fluid and circulation
