Introduction – what is sound healing?
It is a therapeutic practice where you play or listen to healing sounds to promote physical, emotional and spiritual wellness. These sounds can include gongs, crystal bowls, flutes, crystal harp, chimes and other instruments. You can also combine music with chanting or meditation to create a “sound bath.” The sound vibrations are believed to help release blocked energy in your body and mind which can lead to relaxation and balance.
Also known as sound therapy and sound meditation, is a type of alternative medicine that uses sounds to create vibrations in the body. These vibrations can be used to treat anxiety disorders and chronic pain conditions. Sound healing can also be used to treat insomnia.
Sound therapy involves listening to or creating specific tones or frequencies that have therapeutic effects when they’re directed into the body through earphones or speakers. Some of the most common types of sound therapy include music therapy and chanting. In fact, many people who practice meditation use chanting as part of their daily routine because it helps them achieve a meditative state more quickly than other techniques do!
Sound healing has been used for centuries in cultures around the world—from Native Americans using drums during ceremonies like rain dances or powwows (a gathering where members came together for social reasons).

Sound healing is a form of alternative medicine that uses the power of sound to heal the body, mind and spirit. Sounding therapy is a type of meditation that helps you relax and calm your mind. It can also help you sleep.

This therapy works because it stimulates your brain’s limbic system – an area in your brain responsible for processing emotions, learning, memory and behavior – helping you reach an alpha state where your mind feels clear and relaxed enough to fall asleep more easily.
What are the benefits of sound healing?
It can help you relax, relieve stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, increase energy levels, improve concentration and memory recall, improve moods and emotions, decrease pain sensitivity and increase focus. Sound healing has also been proven to increase creativity through improved intuition.
Sound healing works by generating vibrational frequencies that are transferred into the body via the ears. The vibrations are then interpreted as sound by the brain which then produces its own vibrational frequencies in response to hearing these sounds. These vibrations travel throughout your body as well as into your cells creating a powerful healing effect on every level of being: mind/body/spirit!
