When our body is under stress, instead of being in a relaxed state of regeneration and repair, we are in a constant fight-or-flight mode. Stress reducing therapies, like sound healing and meditation, soothe the nervous system, release tension in the body, quiet and focus the mind, settle emotions, relieve pain and more.
Sound Therapy uses entrainment, which is the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm, to help the body remember its own unique internal rhythm.
Did you Know?
Hearing is the first sense to develop in the womb and the last one to leave before we die. We don’t just perceive sound through our ears, but through our entire bodies. Our skin, bones and the water in us conduct sound waves. We are swimming in a sea of sound and don't realize its presence or effects.
Former Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York introduced all of his patients to singing bowls, chanting and guided meditation. Dr. Gaynor was a proponent of sound therapy saying, “Sound healing is actually a return to ancient cultural practices that used chants and singing bowls to restore health and relieve pain...Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
