How Does Sound Healing Work?

sound healing

For thousands of years, sound has been used for healing in nearly every culture. Such as, the mantras of the Hindus, the medicine songs and drum ceremonies of the Native Americans, andPythagoras’ esoteric concept. What do these have in common?  They all use intervals and frequencies of sound, and are all sound healing techniques. Furthermore, these all can work to shift us from a state of unhealthy imbalance, to a state of healthful balance.

How does sound healing work?

Sound can help to shift our brainwave states, by using methods of entrainment, such as binaural beats or isochronic tones. Likewise, brainwave entrainment can be used to synchronize our brainwaves. By using a stable sound frequency, the brainwaves can become attuned with it. Furthermore, brainwaves can be entrained, by using regular rhythms, and certain sound frequencies. This makes it possible to quickly shift our normal, alert, waking beta brainwave state, to a relaxed meditative alpha state. Furthermore, sound can even induce an even deeper theta meditation, and deep delta sleep, where the body can heal itself.

Sound therapy is both passive, and participatory.  Passive means you become consciously relaxed. You lay down, close your eyes, and consciously slow and deepen your breath. It’s in this state of relaxation, you will participate, by opening up, and becoming consciously aware of each sound. The sound itself will help to create the mental pathways to help deepen this relaxation. This is the same way a mantra can help you arrive at a state of meditation.

What can sound do?

Sound not only helps to induce a state of deep relaxation, it also has a unique and profound way of moving through our areas of energetic blockage. These energy blockages can be found in our physical body, as well as in our our subtle body, our aura.

The physical body is where we experience discomfort and pain. Deep relaxation can alleviate pain and discomfort. It allows us to consciously change our relationship to the discomfort or pain. Sound healing frequencies can help to facilitate a physiological reaction, such as the natural release of endorphins.

The subtle body is our energetic body, our aura. The subtle body contains the energetic imbalances and emotional traumas, that can ultimately manifest in our physical bodies. It’s vital to approach healing, both physical and emotional, not just from a physical angle. Healing is a holistic experience, that encompasses body, mind, and spirit.

What about environmental factors?

Consider the types of sound you experience in your every day environment. Loud, discordant sounds can increase your stress levels. This can create energy imbalances in the nervous system, lowering the immune system or even cause hearing loss.

Every day sounds can become annoyingly magnified. This contributes to an amplified feedback cycle of stress. When we use sound therapy techniques, we can find our balanced center, and feel grounded. By doing so, we are better prepared to appreciate the sounds in our every day environment as a unique symphony. Sound is constantly playing around us, and rather than feel overwhelmed by the random, and sometimes jarring, noises of a city or work environment, we can appreciate the nuances.

Our bodies, minds and our spirits always desire to move in the direction of balance. But often, we have too much noise, and not enough time, to dedicate to our meditation experience. Sound therapy is an easy way to get to the source of our inner peace, and find balance in all aspects of our lives.
