Sound has been utilised in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. It is our universal language. Whether through the use of mantras, prayers, singing, instruments these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.

Sound impacts the many layers of our being:

  • Physical – disease and pain
  • Mental – brainwave entrainment
  • Emotional – transform trapped emotions Spiritual/energetic – access higher levels of consciousness

When we are healthy everything in our body vibrates in harmony or resonance. We become dis-eased when a part of our body starts to vibrate at a different rate-out of the natural flow of our energetic system. From an energetic perspective all illness is a manifestation of dis-harmony within the body, an imbalance in the cells. Since all matter is energy vibrating at different rates, by altering the rate of vibration we can change the structure of matter, and resonate the body back into good health.

Sound can shift frequencies from low energy of guilt and fear to higher vibrations of love and joy. Sound healing is the use of sacred instruments or voice to release energetic blockages inducing a state of ease and harmony in the body. While there are many types of sound therapy, all of them produce vibrations that alter your brain waves.

Sound healing can help you clear energetic blockages and thus facilitate healing on a physical and mental level. Some of the benefits of sound therapy include:

  • lower stress levels
  • fewer mood swings
  • lower blood pressure
  • lower cholesterol
  • improved sleep

Over the years, sound healing has also been used to treat a number of conditions including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, and dementia.

The sound wave passing through the body stimulates red blood cells, and opens up the blood supply to all organs and throughout the body. Gongs also stimulate the limbic system, forcing your muscles to relax. The sound of a gong is heard through the ears, passing through the auditory nerve, then the vagus nerve, stimulating every organ in the body. All your organs operate more effectively, especially your liver and kidneys. You wake feeling refreshed and invigorated.

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 I use are voice, alchemy crystal bowls, Gongs, tuning forks, flute, and a shamanic drum.It’s important to note that awareness plays a huge role in our own healing. I find that vocal toning is an incredibly powerful practice that gives us the ability to fine-tune our greatest vibrational instrument: our own body. I always encourage clients to incorporate simple, but effective breathing exercises and vocal toning exercises in their daily routine, to help bring a greater sense of balance into their lives.

The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.
The challenge is to silence the mind.
