Sound Healing

Sound Healing
So you might think that Sound healing is a new trend in the space of wellbeing and mindfulness; however this healing therapy has been used for centuries by the likes of Tibetan monks, Aboriginals and other cultures around the world such as the Greeks who used music to cure mental disorders and achieve a state of relaxation and balance for the mind, body, and soul. Much like how your favourite tune can help lift your mood! 

 With its numerous benefits, including the treatment of anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions, sound therapy is becoming increasingly popular as a complementary form of therapy. Whether you are looking to lower stress levels, improve your sleep, or simply unwind, sound healing may be the therapy for you.

The Science Behind Sound Healing
Sound Healing works on two principles: That different emotions vibrate at different levels, and that blocked, or unexpressed emotions, are the main source of dis-ease. The ​​human body is 75% water, which is why sound therapy can have such a profound impact on our physical and mental health. 

Sound healers use instruments, such as:
  • Tibetan bowls
  • Crystal bowls
  • Glasses
  • Gongs
  • Tuning forks
  • Chanting 

These devices allow for vibrations at specific frequencies when struck in order to achieve a state of relaxation for the mind, body and soul. These vibrations also correspond to specific emotions.

Chakra crystal singing bowls can for example be used alongside treatments such as Reiki as the bowls have been tuned to a certain frequency to match that of the particular chakra. As the sounder plays, the vibrations move up and in you, assisting in the shifting of stagnant or blocked energies and restoring balance. Many people understandably don’t want to feel sadness or grief and so they close their heart chakras rather than allowing themselves to feel into these uncomfortable emotions. When the practitioner strikes the particular bowl, they release the healing vibration of the heart chakra into the body of the person being healed. This has the potential to balance the heart chakra.

Sound healing has also been used to help patients in hospitals and aged care facilities to name a few, not only to boost morale but also to assist patients recovery and healing as well as to enhance receptivity for those who have suffered from stroke or who are unconscious/coma. A beautiful example of this is the work A Sound Life Charity does and who Helen, Bodhi’s co-founder has personally had the honour of volunteering for in the Sydney hospitals and witnessed the incredible benefits which sound can have on the patients.

Is Sound Therapy Safe?
Sound therapy is generally considered safe for most people, with few reported side effects. However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying sound therapy if you have a pre-existing medical condition.

Different Types of Sound Healing Therapy
There are several different types of sound healing therapy, including chakra crystal singing bowl therapy, gong therapy, and tuning fork therapy. Each type of therapy uses specific instruments to produce different vibrations and frequencies, allowing for a tailored healing experience.

What to Expect From a Sound Healing Session
Sound healing sessions can be held in private or as part of a group, and may be incorporated into a yoga or meditation session, or as a complement to other energy healing therapies, such as Reiki.
During a sound bath session, you will typically lie down on the floor or a treatment table and listen as the practitioner plays a variety of instruments. The instruments may also be placed directly on the body, allowing for a gentle sound massage and a deeper meditative state.
After the session, you may feel lighter, more relaxed, and more productive, with some people reporting a heightened sense of clarity and creativity. You may also experience changes in energy levels or sleep patterns. It is recommended to engage in activities such as journaling, meditation, exercise, and spending time in nature to help you feel more balanced and grounded.
The effects of sound healing can be both physical and emotional. As the body is bathed in sound and vibrations, it can trigger a relaxation response, reducing stress levels and helping to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and mood swings. The harmonious sounds can also balance the mind, body, and soul, promoting a sense of overall well-being. Some people report feeling lighter, more relaxed, and more focused after a sound healing session, while others may experience a release of emotions that were previously suppressed.
Overall, the experience of sound healing can feel like a deep dive into relaxation and peace, with the sounds and vibrations serving as a form of therapy for the mind, body, and soul.
