What is Sound Healing?

Sound Healing is a therapeutic auditory-triggered experience where instruments produce healing frequencies and vibrations washing over and moving through you to create mind-body coherence. This is a form of healing that uses different vibrations to heal the body, mind and spirit. It works on two principles: that different emotions vibrate at different levels and that blocked, or unexpressed emotions, are the main source of disease. 

Vibrations of emotions

We all learned in our elementary science classes that everything is made of atoms. Quantum physicists discovered that atoms are made of subatomic particles, which continually vibrate at certain frequencies. Physics carried this to its logical conclusion and found that the entire universe is just a consequence of many infinitely large fields vibrating. Objects aren’t the only things that vibrate. It has been proven that our thoughts and feelings produce energy, which trigger vibrations. Everything vibrates at a different level, including feelings. Emotions that we consider uncomfortable, or unpleasant, vibrate at relatively low levels. Emotions that most people find pleasant and joyful vibrate at higher levels.  For most people, it is easy to express positive emotions like happiness and joy. However, many people don’t want to feel negative emotions, so they stuff them inside. If this is done over years, the lowly vibrating trapped emotions stagnate in the body and cause disease.

How Sound Healing works

The human body is made up of 75% water, which is a great conductor for vibrations.  Sound healers use instruments, such as crystal bowls, gongs and tuning forks, that vibrate at specific frequencies when struck.  These vibrations correspond to specific emotions.

Many people don’t want to feel sadness or grief, so they close their heart chakras rather than allowing themselves to feel these uncomfortable emotions. When the sound practitioner strikes this bowl, they release the healing vibration of the heart chakra into the body of the person being healed. This opens the heart chakra, allowing it to release the trapped negative emotions.
