Sound Therapy uses sound from a range of sources, including specific instruments and music. Combined with relaxation techniques, playing music and instruments in therapeutic ways can improve health and wellbeing.
The history of Sound Therapy
There is great deal of documented history of the influence of sound in ancient civilisations. The belief is that sound is the creator of the whole universe and has a direct link between humanity and the divine. Many cultures use sounds and music in worship.
Everyone has sounds that they like and dislike, or cause pleasure or pain. These sounds create an emotional response and this response can change how you feel. Therefore, using sounds and music as therapy to change how people feel makes sense.
Everything in the Universe vibrates, and vibrates at different frequencies. Humans are also vibratory beings. Every cell, every molecule and each organ, all vibrate at their own frequency, as does our aura and chakra energy fields. The vibration of an object against another vibrating object causes it to vibrate in harmony or will match its vibratory frequency. This is known as Sympathetic Resonance. Sound Therapy is based on this principle.
This healing therapy uses sound to open and clear the energy centres, helping the mind and body tune in to a peaceful, zen like meditative state. The vibrations can reduce stress and anxiety, lower your heart rate and even reduce pain.
