What Can Sound Healing Do For You?
Sound healing is an ancient healing technique that utilizes sound to influence physical, emotional and spiritual conditions. Chants, instruments and objects that vibrate or emit sound have long been used in this practice to achieve beneficial results.
Vibrational medicine, also known as sound therapy or vibrational healing, is an alternative healing practice that utilizes various vibrations to promote relaxation, strengthen the immune system and increase energy levels.
For centuries, people around the world have relied on this type of healing to achieve a more relaxed state of mind and body – which may improve your chances for living an extended and healthy life.
The initial goal of sound healing is to induce deep relaxation in the patient, so their breathing can slow and become more controlled. Practitioners then apply sound in their chosen modality (i.e., gongs, tuning forks, didgeridoo, singing bowls etc.) either as an all-enveloping sound stream (“sound bath”) or over energy centers such as chakras and other trigger points on the body for healing purposes.
Sound can not only relax the body, but it can also stimulate nitric oxide production in blood vessels to improve heart health and lower high blood pressure. Furthermore, vibrations from sound sources may be applied directly onto patients suffering from tinnitus–an irritating buzzing sensation inside the ears–for added benefit.
Studies have demonstrated the benefits of sound therapy for pain management, stress reduction and other health concerns. Most recently, one such study demonstrated how sound therapy could aid with symptoms related to anxiety and depression.
This research revealed that participants who completed a 60-minute sound meditation using tingshas, Tibetan singing bowls, bells and crystal bowls experienced significant decreases in their levels of tension and depression. This improvement was also linked to improved scores for spiritual well-being as measured by standardized questionnaires.
It is believed that a cranial nerve connects the eardrum to every organ in the body, except the spleen, so externally generated sounds can have an immediate impact on all biological systems within. A sound massage table uses sound and music to harmonize cells, organs and systems which may be out of synchrony with one another.
Vibroacoustic sound massage tables are used by therapists in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, spas, hospices, alternative health clinics, yoga studios and individual practitioners. These tables feature powerful low-frequency speakers that send healing vibrations deep inside the body.
The Vibroacoustic sound table’s latest generation offers the highest quality, most sophisticated audio delivery system on the market, featuring style and comfort as well as state-of-the-art transducers that produce powerful sound with full body vibration.
