Soothing Sounds… Day Spa Magazine recently asked me, ‘What are the benefits of sound therapy?’
My Answer: Typically, sound and harmony are recognized through auditory stimulation. Yet, we also experience sound as sensation.
By definition, sound therapy, or sound healing, is the use of vibration to subtly transform a state of disharmony to well-being.
When used as a therapeutic tool, sound can help us relax and restore, uplift mood, reduce stress and release various neural chemicals that can improve memory and intelligence, strengthen focus, help aid digestion, enhance creative thinking (the ‘genius brain’), improve sleep and help suppress pain.
In my opinion, sound does the heavy lifting, releasing what is considered stagnant or dense energy and restoring balance–a return to wholeness from the inside out.
