Sound Therapy

What is Sound Therapy?

Sound Therapy is relatively new to the western world and has been linked to several ancient cultures including the Egyptians, Africans, Aborigines, Myans and Celts to name a few. Since we have lost a lot of the ancient knowledge of how Sound was used as therapy in the past, we are now rediscovering what sound can do for the human condition. To make it a little more bearable and to bring about change in the one seeking treatment.

The subject (or client) lays on a table or in a group setting they may lay on the floor with a pillow and blanket for comfort.

The practitioner uses several tools to create tones and sounds that are harmonic with the desired state of the body. Some of the tools or instruments used are Crystal Bowls, Tibetan Bowls, Native Drum, Rattle & Flutes, Tuning Forks, Chimes, etc. These instruments are carefully chosen by the practitioner for their tone and frequency.

How does Sound Therapy work?

The use of sound as therapy can aid in facilitating a shift in our brainwaves as well as our consciousness by the use of entrainment. By providing a stable frequency, the brain will entrain to the frequency the practitioner is using, much like how a string on a musical instrument of similar resonance will ring when a harmonic string is plucked. This is called sympathetic resonance.

By using stable frequencies in conjunction with rhythm, it is possible to shift our basic Beta state (normal waking consciousness) to Alpha (relaxed consciousness). Spending prolonged time in such frequencies can bring the brain to Theta (meditative state) or even Delta (sleep - where the deepest internal healing occurs).

A similar result can be achieved in meditation or yoga where rhythmic breathing will bring about an altered state of consciousness. Sound therapy uses frequency as the catalyst to achieve these shifts.

Be aware that a healing journey, if done with courage and honesty, will shed light on every corner of the soul. When one steps onto the path of a healing journey, one has to be aware that it will touch every aspect of their life, and usually ones that don't want to be touched. This is called resistance, but we will talk about that at another time.

The treatment may seem simple, maybe even too simple. A tone is played and change is observed in the subject, it's like magic. Just know that these changes don't usually happen in one treatment. Several treatments over a period of a few days weeks or months are usually what it takes in order to see a noticeable change. As the treatments continue, changes may start to be noticed in the subject's life.

Sometimes the changes can bring upheaval and abrupt movement. This can be a manifestation of the clearing out which happens when things are out of balance.  As the body syncs with the new frequencies, old habits and things that do not align with the new frequencies will start to fall away. This treatment is very powerful and should not be taken lightly. This is not said to scare, but to bring awareness of the true change which will come as a result.

What is a Sound Therapy session like?

Sound therapy treatments are both a passive and participatory experience. The passive aspect is that you become more relaxed by laying down and slowing your breath. By doing this, you prepare yourself to become the receiver of sound and change. It's in this place of stillness that you participate by becoming more open and aware of each sound that comes in. Sound helps create the pathway to this place of stillness the same as a mantra helps you to arrive at the still point of meditation.

As mentioned above, several types of tools are used during a session, including voice, drumming, tuning forks and crystal singing bowls.

Awareness of intention is one of the most important parts of the process, not just on the part of the practitioner, but also on the part of the subject. Setting the intention of a session is done at the beginning of a session. It is good for the practitioner and the subject to communicate the intention before the session begins. This way the message is clear and we can bring balance into our lives.

How do we define the energetic body?

If we are able to shift our perspective we can change our relationship to the issue that may be preventing us from experiencing our optimal homeostasis. Sound not only helps with inducing relaxation but also has a way of moving through and releasing areas of blockage. These energetic blockages can be located in our physical bodies, our subtle bodies, or both.

The physical body is where we experience localized pain and discomfort. Using tuning forks, especially osteophonic tuning forks (frequency lower than 50hz), we can stimulate the release of Nitric Oxide, a free radical molecule that has been proven to positively affect pain transmission and control. In short, this means these frequencies help to create a physiological reaction, enabling us to modify our relationship to the pain.

Our "subtle body" is our energetic body. This body is where our life force energy exists, commonly referred to as Qi, Chi or Prana.

In Chinese medicine, meridian points are used to pinpoint areas that have restricted energetic flow to our physical and subtle bodies. The body is known to have thousands of these meridian lines that are mapped out through the body, in the same way, we've mapped out the latitude and longitude of the earth.

The subtle body holds imbalances and traumas that we acquire as we move through this earth plane existence, which can eventually manifest in our physical bodies. This is why it's important to look at healing and balance not only from a physical perspective but as a complete holistic experience that includes mind, body, and spirit.

Sound has the ability to positively affect our whole being. Eileen McCusick, the author of Tuning The Human Biofield, has been exploring the theory that our subtle body acts as memory storage. For example, a tree has rings that extend outward as the tree grows. McCusick suggests that our subtle body expands and stores our life experiences in a similar way. If we apply frequency with tuning forks we can help blocked energy from past experiences move toward the energetic filtration system of each chakra, so that the stuck energy can be recycled back into our life force.

What can sound heal?

Using sound as therapy can provide results for a variety of issues including:

  • Sleep disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress management
  • PTSD
  • Pain management

 

Is our environment a factor?

It's important to consider what kinds of sound we take in from our living environments. Anyone who lives in New York City knows how painful the sound of a subway train screeching to a halt feels and sounds. Loud sounds can elevate our stress levels, create imbalances in our nervous system, lower our immunity and in extreme cases, cause hearing loss.

When we are stressed, our whole relationship to sound changes, and regular everyday sounds can become magnified and contribute to the feedback cycle of the stress, amplifying it even more. By utilizing sound therapy techniques, we can become better listeners and more aware of the sounds we take in.

Many of us already have a pretty good understanding of the benefits of healthy eating, and the same can be true of sound. This is another example where mindfulness practices like chanting and vocal toning, can help us to find a center and feel grounded. In doing so, when we do have those stressful trigger moments, we may be better equipped to appreciate and discern the sounds more as our own unique symphony constantly happening around us, rather than feel overwhelmed by the random cacophony.

Our body, mind, and spirit always want to be moving in a direction toward balance, yet we often have too much outer stimulus and noise and not enough time to dedicate to ourselves, which can prevent us from achieving a better state of harmony.  Sound has a way of helping us get to the source of this inner peace we all desire.

When sound is applied to the body, whether that be the physical or the ethereal body, specific frequencies have the ability to break up stuck emotional-energetic residue.

It is important to make ourselves aware of the sounds that we take in on a day to day basis. Some sounds can be pleasant and can cause feelings of relaxation, such as a cat purring, birds chirping, water running in a creek. On the other hand, some sounds can be very abrasive and can cause feelings of stress, such as phone or text notifications, squeaky brakes on a car, the closing of a door on an elevator.

These concepts may seem strange to us modern westerners. That is simply because we have not been taught these things in our society. However, as history is beginning to show. Ancient humans were much more aware of how sound affected our physical and emotional bodies.

Just as Energy Healing can be done from a distance, so can sound therapy. These sounds are also energy and when directed by a skilled energy practitioner can travel to the subject over distance in the same manner. Once the practitioner makes the connection with the subject all work that is done during that connection operates just as if the practitioner is in the same room as the subject. Although it is wonderful to get the audio benefit of being in the same room, the practice works just the same.

I invite you to seek healing in all ways. I hope you will try sound therapy as a way to bring yourself to homeostasis.
