There’s nothing new about it. In fact, healing using sound actually originates from many ancient cultural practices that used chants and singing bowls to connect mind and body, to elicit a meditative, healing state and to restore health. Archeological evidence suggests that sound may be our first language, and so, it is deeply embedded into our cultural history.
Modern science is now also documenting human’s deep and innate wiring to respond to sound. Different frequencies and types of sounds have been found to have measurable and profound effects on our heartbeat, on our chemical and biological makeup, on our nervous system health, on cellular regeneration, on our immunity, on bone and muscle pain, and, as a boost to our emotional and mental state.
Confirmed by this phenomenal evidence, a new form of sound therapy, often called sound healing, has thus become popular.
So, how does sound healing work?
How do vibrations of our voice or of objects that resonate, such as tuning forks, gongs and Tibetan singing bowls, induce relaxation and stimulate healing?
Conversely, what happens when we hear sounds, such as traffic, fire alarms or music that we hate, and that which our body perceives as noise pollution?
Sharon Carne, a classically-trained musician, is the founder of Sound Wellness, a holistic modality that uses techniques based on sound and music to bring your body, mind, emotions and spirit back into harmony. In this episode, Sharon recounts our human history with sound, and, vividly describes how sound healing affects our physical and emotional bodies. She also details how we can optimally integrate sound into our daily lives for increased energy, productivity, calm, focus…and to boost the health of our communities.
Tune into this episode to hear the full track about the power of sound for our holistic wellbeing!
