Drawing from antient spiritual traditions and latest neurological and psychological research, Sound Healing practices facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by synchronizing fluctuating brainwaves to a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can influence our brain waves and learn to down-shift our normal consciousness to a state of deep relaxation, and even meditative trance, a space where emotional and physical healing can occur.

When sound enters our ears, it is converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex of our brain where they trigger multiple biochemical reactions including releases of hormones and chemicals that affect our physical and emotional state. By manipulating the qualities of sound, the healer can elicit desired neurological and biochemical responses to unlock the body’s innate ability to rebalance and heal.

Neurological research shows that sound therapy helps release dopamine, neurotransmitter responsible for our feelings of happiness, and oxytocin, a hormone that promotes feelings of trust and bonding and also acts as a natural painkiller.

Sound not only helps with inducing relaxation, but also has a way of moving through areas of blockage. These energetic blockage areas can be located in our physical bodies, our subtle bodies, or both.

Sound has the ability to positively affect our whole being. It is theorized that applying certain types of patterns of frequency with tuning may help blocked energy move toward the energetic filtration system of each chakra.
