Benefits of sound healing
Sound healing is an ancient form of therapy that can have many benefits for people in the modern world.
Sound healing can relieve stress, bring the body into balance, calm anxiety, reduce pain, enhance relaxation, increase good karma and remove negative energy, promote better sleep, encourage better behavior in children, and help people recover from trauma and illness.
Much like the practice of yoga, sound healing has beneficial effects on the body, mind, and spirit.
How does sound healing work?
This therapy works by entrainment, that is, it draws the brain waves into a more relaxed and calm state by means of listening to music or other sounds. The brain waves become attuned to the sounds and naturally slow down, similarly to what happens during meditation.
Once the sound therapy has helped the body and mind to relax. Chemicals will be released into the body to enhance mood, and blood vessels and the lymphatic system will open and help the body in its efforts to heal.
The mind will feel calmer and more relaxed, leading to better health outcomes as well. In addition, the person will feel more in tune spiritually and will feel more whole and grounded.
Main Benefits of Sound Healing
Even people who are deaf or have trouble hearing well can benefit from sound therapy since their bodies can still feel the vibrations from the sounds.
Young children who cannot yet speak can also benefit since the sounds do not need any interpretation. They are naturally understood by the body.
Sound healing affects our emotions as well as our bodies. Just as certain pieces of music or popular songs can affect your emotions. The strong sounds of drumming, gongs, or singing bowls can release emotions and heal emotional trauma or blockages.
Especially in today’s stressful world, negative emotions and energy can build up in the body. Using calming and healing sounds can reverse this trend, enhancing positive emotions and instilling positive energy into the body, mind, and spirit.
