In 2016 I received a Diploma of Sound Therapy with Distinction from the Centre of Excellence, Manchester, UK.
In 2018 I received a Diploma for Sound Healing with Groups, also with distinction from The Integral Sound Healing Academy – https://www.academyofsoundhealing.com
I became interested in the healing properties of sound after I had some wonderful experiences at sound therapy sessions myself. Sounds have the amazing ability to transport the mind to ‘different’ places. A sound therapy session is very much like a meditation, but there seems less effort involved, which makes it more appealing. Sound therapy can also be seen as massage by sound waves.
No matter how you interpret the experience of a sound therapy session, you walk away feeling lighter, happier and more relaxed.
I now have a vast selection of instruments to facilitate sound therapy sessions at my place ($150 per 90 minute session, which can be shared with up to 6 people) or at another place of choice @ $250, flat rate.
Are the benefits of a sound therapy session real or it just a noisy form of quackery?
Research has found the following useful facts in relation to sound, frequency and human perception:
- Evidence of healing with sounds, by use of chants, gongs and didgeridoos can be traced back through the millennia.
- Every object in life has its own frequency and all frequencies are subject to constant change. Our brain is known to operate on 4 main different frequencies depending on our activity levels.
- Physiologically: sounds rhythms of 12 cycles per minute are soothing – breathing, waves, gentle rocking.
- Our brain responds to relaxing sounds: Birdsong is the safest sound there is. The world is at peace when birds are singing.
- Entrainment is a well-known scientific principle:
Brainwave entrainment, the practice of entraining one’s brainwaves to a desired frequency. Entrainment (biomusicology), the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm. Entrainment (chronobiology), the alignment of a circadian system’s period and phase to the period and phase of an external rhythm.
- Resonance: the reinforcement or prolongation of sound by reflection from a surface or by the synchronous vibration of a neighbouring object.
- Sound frequencies have an impact on our brainwaves and our cell structures
- Sounds are heard and felt
- Sounds are often emotionally charged, consciously or subconsciously through associations from the past.
How does it work?
Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by means of the entrainment principle. Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves and chakra frequencies by providing external, stable and healthy frequencies, which the brainwaves and subtle body can attune to.
In what situations are Sound Therapy most beneficial?
You can simply enjoy a Sound Therapy session when you are perfectly fit and healthy, as it is a deliciously relaxing experience. However, these sessions can be particularly therapeutic for a variety of issues including:
- Sleep disorders
- Stress management
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Pain management
- Recovery from illness
