What is Sound Therapy?
Sound healing is founded on the premise that all matter is vibrating at specific frequencies. Science has proven that sound or vibration has a strong impact upon substance. Dr. Emoto has proven that sound changes the molecular structure of water. In humans the body water constitutes as much as 73%of the body weight. Therefore undoubtedly sound will and does affect the molecules in the human body.
There are a wide range of techniques available in sound therapy. The most common and basic use for sound therapy is mediation and relaxation. The use of nature sounds and natural instruments, such as crystal bowls and tuning forks have specific healing frequencies and harmonics. Drumming and rhythm are now used by corporations to release stress and build team unity.
Sound and music are also used to help with difficult life transitions, including birth and death.
The medical community also uses sound and music in a variety of ways, such as: During surgery to relieve pain, to breaking up gall stones and to relax muscles using ultra sound. Doctors are now finding the resonant frequency of organs in order to help vibrate them back to a healthy state. Perhaps most exciting is cutting edge research that shows how sound might be used to disintegrate disease such as cancer.
Many doctors and those in the medical profession are beginning to use sound therapies in their daily practices. Practitioners say the light sound unblocks or redirects energy in the body, similar to that of acupuncture. It works in tandem with our own body’s vibrational frequencies, rearranging the ions on cell membranes. Some of the disorders that Sound Therapy helps to heal and balance are: anxiety, chronic pain, sleep disorders and PTSD.
We all know in our daily lives how just listening to music can be a great stress reliever and mood changer. Sound Therapy can do this and so much more, and when included with a Reiki session both therapies enhance the flow of the healing energy throughout your body leaving you with a relaxed feeling of great well-being.
