Sound Therapy

Have you ever listened to a piece of music and felt like you wanted to dance or cry?

Sound and music can calm or stimulate the mind - certain sounds are known to relax and others energise.

Healing with sound is one of the oldest & most natural forms of healing known to man. Think of a mother signing a lullaby to her baby.

For centuries & in all countries & traditions, harmonious sound such as music, has been used as a way of soothing the mind & emotions. Some Eastern cultures have long realised that the beneficial effect actually goes much deeper than just a sense of emotional well-being; harmonious sounds also have a healing effect on the body at a cellular level.

Sound waves travel effortlessly through the body. Meditation

You may have felt sound pounding your chest at a concert. Even though you cannot see sound coming from the speakers you know that it is the cause of the physical feeling. Therefore you know that sound moves physical matter. Sound and music also moves us emotionally. A heavy rock song is very rarely put to a romantic love scene in a movie, for example. It is more likely to accompany a car chase or action scene. How many times has a piece of music reduced you to tears or given you goose pimples? (Think of Pschyo!)

When healing with sound we play a combination of ancient and modern instruments to gently bathe the body at a cellular level. The gentle tones of healing sound gently remove blockages in the energy system, therefore allowing the free-flow of prana to be resumed. The end result being the body heals itself. Certain tones, instruments and vowel sounds can be used for different chakras, however the most important thing to remember is the intention behind the sound.

Jonathan Goldman defined the 'equation' for optimum healing to take place as:

sound + positive intention = healing effect
