Good Vibrations...
the myriad of benefits of sound healing
 

 

 

There is a myth in our Western culture that Sound Healing is some sort of “WOO WOO” new age phenomena and “why should I waste my valuable time?” Good question, why should you? Sound Healing is growing in reputation in our Western culture as a preventative, complimentary therapy to allopathic medicine, largely by word of mouth from those that have experienced the benefits. While Sound Healing is not a quick fix for serious illnesses, there are multitudes of neuroscientific studies being done at universities around the world on how sound improves mood, sleep, and memory, reduces pain and inflammation, stress, and hypertension and strengthens the immune and central nervous systems. What makes sound therapy difficult to understand is it is not visible or tangible like allopathic medicine where you can see and swallow a pill to treat the symptoms of some underlying disease or discomfort. Sound uses an invisible system, often referred to as “vibrational medicine,” to communicate with the cells in the body, and until you try and personally feel it, you cannot fully understand it. From a scientific perspective, Quantum Physics tells us all matter in the Universe consists of atoms and bonds in continual vibration and states of attraction. Regardless of whether we see or hear it moving, all matter has this vibration, including the earth, our bodies and our cellular make up. When vibrating in resonance, our cells are in a healthy state of harmony, balance and homeostasis. However, toxic emotions such as stress, anger, worry, and fear can lead to a loss of cellular resonance as can other factors such as poor diet and lifestyle, environmental toxins and WI-FI devices. This loss of cellular resonance has a proven correlation to inflammation leading to adverse quality of life, chronic disease and sometimes even early death. Sound Healing Therapy, through various notes and harmonics, overtones and undertones and binaural beats can detoxify, hydrate, and energize the cells while also inducing a state of deep relaxation and cellular resonance. Once the body’s cells are back in a resonant form of communication, the body is able to go about healing itself.  Please watch this  3-minute video, “Live Blood Results After a 20 minute Gong Meditation,” to visually understand how sound affects our cells.

 

Sound is deeply rooted in all ancient cultures and used around the world to promote a deeper sense of calm and inner peace or higher states of consciousness. Sound has such a healthy and beneficial effect on the mind because sound frequencies entrain the brain to cycle through five different brain wave frequencies. The five brain waves in order of highest frequency to lowest are: gamma, beta, alpha, theta, and delta. Our brain’s ability to transition through various brain wave frequencies plays a large role in how successful we are at managing stress, focusing on tasks, and getting a good night’s sleep. If one of the five types of brain waves is either over-produced or under-produced in our brain, it can cause problems. For this reason, there is no single brain wave that is “better” or more “optimal” than the others. Each serves a purpose to help us cope with various situations – whether it is to help us process and learn new information or help us calm down after a long stressful day. Therefore, we can conclude that sound healing therapy benefits the whole person - their physical, mental and emotional well-being.

 

Sound Healing Therapy can be experienced with a Sound Practitioner in either a private therapy setting or in a group therapy setting, also known as a Sound Bath. There are many variations in these experiences depending on the practitioner you work with and what tools and instruments they use. Sound Bath group therapies tend to take place at a wellness center or yoga studio where you come prepared to lie comfortably for up to an hour as the Sound Practitioner plays specific instruments such as Singing Bowls, Gongs, Bells, Chimes, Drums, Digeridoo, Flute and more. The sounds and vibrations of these instruments wash over your body like waves as you deeply relax and restore the body. Every once in awhile you may doze off which is fine too as your cell still receive what they need for healing.  People most often report walking in with pain (physical and emotional) and floating out pain free.. 


Kimberly’s Group Sound Baths are held every Sunday and you can book here. We provide comfortable zero-point gravity chairs to recline in with a cup holder for your water and a blanket you can throw over your body to keep comfortably warm as you deeply relax.

Alternatively, you can schedule your own private Sound Bath experience (up to 10 people) on a day and time suitable for your group's event.. People love to schedule private sound baths to share the experience together, whether it be for a birthday celebration, girl's day out, family holiday, employee appreciation, and/or special club gathering.  Pricing discounts are based on the total number of attendees.
