Sound Healing or Sound Therapy may seem like the latest New Age trend, but in fact it dates back thousands of years. Our ancestors embraced sound as the very essence of life itself.
The ancients understood what modern science is now beginning to discover; that we live in a sea of vibration—the source of all form, the source of all thought. Many cultures and religions revere sound so deeply as to believe it called the universe into being.
Among the legacy of mathematics, Pythagoras, often considered the Godfather of Modern Sound Medicine, taught his students to use sound and music to soothe the spirit, release worry, fear and anger and enhance joy and happiness. He explained how sound functions in relation to the universe,
“…each and every atom produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having its own function and character, contribute to the whole.”
Our own body is a microcosm of that celestial symphony. Ancient cultures looked upon disease as a musical issue, therefore music and sound was the natural treatment, restoring harmony to the body, mind and spirit.
Fabien Maman, a French composer and bioenergeticist has begun to explore and document the specific influence on cells of sound wave energies. He found that the most visibly dramatic results of the effects of sound on the human cell came about when he sang musical scales into uterine cancer cells:
“The structure disorganized extremely quickly. The human voice carries something in its vibration that makes it more powerful than any musical instrument: consciousness….It appeared that the cancer cells were not able to support a progressive accumulation of vibratory frequencies. As soon as I introduced the third frequency [human voice] in the sequence, the cells began to destabilize.”

“Since the human body is over 70% water and since sound travels five times more efficiently through water than through air, sound frequency stimulation directly into the body is a highly efficient means for total body stimulation, especially at the cellular level. Direct stimulation of living cellular tissue using sound frequency vibration has shown marked cellular metabolism and therefore a possible mobilization of a cellular healing response.”

“The body is held together by sound, and the presence of disease indicates that some sounds are out of tune… primordial sound is the mysterious link that holds the universe together in a web that is the quantum field.”
— Dr. Deepak Chopra, founder of the Chopra Center for Well-Being
Dr. Herbert Benson, M.D., of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Boston’s Deaconess Medical Center, having studied the effects of chanting mantras on human physiology, found that repeating a single syllable or word produced measurable changes in energy consumption, respiration rate, heartbeat, metabolic rate and pulse, as well as an increase in alpha brain waves.
Crystal Sound Energy Therapy
Alchemy crystal singing bowls are both medical device and instrument. The high-grade quartz crystals in every bowl are able to amplify store, focus, transfer and most importantly transmute energy. These gemstone, metal and mineral-infused crystal singing bowls have a profound impact on our bodies, as they are crystalline in structure and shares an affinity with our human DNA. The deep impact of these high frequency instruments transform not only the bones and tissues but penetrate the sub-atomic structure of the cell.
According to Oncologist Mitchell Gaynor, M.D., crystal sound energy therapy is the future of modern medicine. It offers the same benefits to conditions of the body as some prescription drugs. Vibrations from crystal sound resonate the nervous system, transforms brain states and effectively treat stress, depression, sleep disorders, Alzheimer and cancer.
