Sound therapy is a type of alternative medicine that involves using sound to promote physical, mental, and emotional healing, as well as very often spiritual insight. Sound is in itself an intelligent consciousness that can both find and treat blocks in the physical and non physical realms. It is a vibrational medicine with specific study on the way frequencies can affect the layers of the bodies in unique ways.
During a sound therapy session, a practitioner will use various instruments such as singing bowls, tuning forks, gongs, and chimes to create specific frequencies and tones. The client will typically lie down or sit comfortably, while the practitioner plays the instruments in a way that is designed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and help the body release tension.
The sounds used in sound therapy are often chosen for their specific therapeutic properties. For example, the low-frequency vibrations of a large gong can be used to help release tension in the body, while the high-frequency tones of a tuning fork can be used to stimulate the body's natural healing processes.
Some of the potential benefits of sound therapy may include improved sleep, reduced anxiety and stress, enhanced mood, increased focus and concentration, and relief from chronic pain.
It is important to note that while sound therapy has gained much popularity and attention, that finding the right practitioner for individual needs. The level of training and experience the practitioner can affect the outcome of the therapy session. Sound is an amplifier of intention and insight so finding a practitioner with added tools is recommended for optimum experience.
