What is Sound Healing?
Sound is Vibration
Vibrations are Waves
Waves have different Frequencies (Hertz)
Frequency + Intent = Healing
Sound Healing has been practiced for thousands of years to realign the body's vibration, improve mental health issues and emotional wellbeing. While the science of sound healing is new, drums, bells, gongs, singing bowls and chanted voices have been used for thousands of years in religious, ceremonial and healing practices.
Some of the earliest detailing of 'sound healing therapy' is 750,000 years ago when early man sang everything in Sanskrit, the oldest known form of communication. The Indigenous Australians used ancient didgeridoos in healing rituals 40,000 years ago. The ancient Greeks believed music had the power to heal the body and soul. There is a form of sound healing to be found in every culture worldwide and throughout history.
With so much uncertainty in the world today, people have turned to alternate therapy to help reset their nervous system and calm their mind. Sound healing is the use of specific instruments, music, tones, and other sonic vibrations to balance and heal the body, mind, and spirit. It involves using specialized sound frequencies to create a therapeutic atmosphere to promote deep rest, nervous system rebalancing, and emotional release.
Everything in the Universe is in a state of movement, vibration.
The vibrations produced by sound cause a stimulation of the organs of hearing.
We can also experience these vibrations directly through our skin and tissues in our body.
From the moment we were in the womb, we were affected by sound and vibration.
Science shows that sound therapy goes far beyond lyrics that hit the spot or the calming properties of chanting. The same vibrations that cause sound can have a significant
impact on our physical health too.
Everything is energy.
Energy is "information that vibrates".
A sound wave is formed when a sound is made.
Sound is a type of energy made by vibrations.
Frequency is the number of times the sound wave passes a particular point in one second.
One cycle per second is known as one Hertz (1 Hz).
(For example, a tuning fork vibrating at 32 Hz. is moving at the rate of 32 times per second.)

"There is no organ system in the body that is not affected by sound, music and vibration.
You can look at disease as a form of disharmony. If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”
