Sound HealingSound healing, alternatively known as Sound Therapy or Vibrational Medicine, is the practice of using sound and frequency for relaxation, healing, and personal development. It’s currently enjoying a large following and much curiosity. Articles in national newspapers, magazines, and events across social media have raised the profile of gongs, Himalayan and crystal singing bowls, and tuning forks as sound healing instruments, with enthusiasts signing up in increasing numbers to lay down with a comfy blanket and cushion and enjoy an hour of relaxation. And relax you it can. With the capacity to slow down your respiratory rate, relax your brainwave patterns, lower your heart rate variability and calm your nervous system, sound healing is at the cutting edge of healing along with meditation and yoga. It’s non-invasive and can be inexpensive and social. Sound healing can reduce your stress and anxiety, improve your sleep, create a deep sense of well-being, and promote healing that goes well beyond simple relaxation. Participants with conditions such as Parkinson’s are benefitting, as are the elderly, and those with PTSD and other mental health difficulties.
