What is sound therapy? Sound therapy is the application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of restoring the state of harmony and balance. Sound is fast and effective - it bypasses our cognitive brain and goes directly to our cells.
What is the role of the sound therapist or sound healer? Sound is essentially life-force energy and contains innate intelligence. Together with the client the sound therapist sets an outcome for the treatment and the sound goes wherever it is needed. The sound healer's job is to be a channel for the frequencies required by using their voice and playing high frequency instruments such as crystal bowls, drums, rattles, didgeridoo and more.
How does it work? Everything is energy and in a healthy state everything vibrates at a specific frequency. When we are ill, stressed or emotionally challenged our frequency drops and our body’s self-healing systems can no longer function effectively. Sound therapy works on the principle of entrainment. When a higher frequency sound is directed towards a person vibrating at a lower frequency, the frequency of the receiver will become one with or entrain with the higher frequency. This is known as ‘raising your vibration’.
What can I expect? Sound is very potent and affects us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. No two people have the same experience from the same sound. People often report that their pain disappears, other people report that they became aware of pain they didn’t know they had. Some people receive clarity and understanding about an issue, for others the sound helps uncover buried memories, emotions or dreams.
The sound continues to integrate for up to 3 days following the treatment. Be aware that fluctuating emotions or physical symptoms may occur. Drink lots of water to flush toxins from your system. If possible, stay off electrical devices and spend time in nature following your treatment.
