Sound therapy offers a soothing yet stimulating experience, stimulating both your parasympathetic nervous system (which regulates digestion and reduces stress) as well as lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation, according to the American Heart Association.
Sound therapy is a type of vibrational medicine that draws inspiration from both ancient practices such as singing bowls and modern techniques like ‘cutonics’, which uses sound vibrations generated from tuning forks at acupuncture points to balance and align the body without needles.
Sound therapy comes in many forms, but most practitioners work one-on-one with clients to assess their needs and select sounds and frequencies most suitable for them. Sound therapists may use prerecorded sounds or have their own instruments available for playing.
Sessions may last anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours, or longer if the client requests it. A session might include simple breathing exercises, yoga or tai chi; in many cases the therapist will adjust the sound according to each person’s individual needs.
Before the session begins, a practitioner usually has a conversation with the client to define the goals of the session and assess what sounds and frequencies would be most beneficial to their body. They may conduct a sound assessment, scan the biofield or electrical magnetic field and make recommendations accordingly.
They will then select instruments that best support their clients’ healing processes, whether that means helping them feel more at ease or managing specific physical ailments such as asthma, fibromyalgia, arthritis or chronic fatigue. Furthermore, they’ll focus on specific organs, endocrine systems and brain areas too.
As the therapist plays various instruments, clients have the option to close their eyes or remain open, depending on their preference and comfort level. Some practitioners even provide audio or video recordings of these sounds for people to listen to at home.
Sessions can be incredibly healing and beneficial for those suffering from stress, anxiety or depression. Not only do they reduce levels of anxiety, but studies have also discovered that they improve sleep quality, provide energy boosts and even lower blood pressure.
Sound therapy can be an effective alternative to psychiatric medication for some patients, but always consult your doctor first before beginning any new type of treatment. While sound therapy may cause some side effects, they tend to be mild and temporary in nature.
