Sound therapy for lack of a better explanation is another method that can be used to “re-tune" the body, mind and spirit!
The energy systems and chakras of the body often get out of alignment. Sound therapy can be an ideal method to restore balance and harmony. Each chakras responds to different sounds, as it does to different colours.
Sound therapy is similar to some of the other holistic therapies such as colour therapy, aromatherapy or reiki, it is one other method to be used in preventative or restorative health concerns. All things vibrate to sound, light and colour and the correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance.
Sound waves travel throughout our body and the aim of sound therapy is to bathe our bodies in general rhythms that are best suited to what we need or are lacking at this time. Sound is used to remove blockage and to get the energy flowing again! In essence we are acting as a musician retuning his instrument - that instrument being our bodies!
Each Chakra of the body corresponds to a specific colour, and a specific musical note
Sound therapy can help to alleviate stress, regain better sleep habits, improve hearing, mental conditions, make positive improvement in the areas of creativity, learning and concentration. In fact sound therapies is used to treat learning disabilities in children.
Vibrations can reduces respiratory rates, lower heart rates, and relax brain wave patterns.
During a sound therapy session you can expect to either sit or lie down on a massage table while fully clothed. You will be exposed to various sound vibrations and frequencies as agreed to with your practitioner including singing bowls, tuners, drums, bells, music, waterfalls and wind chimes!
