what is sound healing?

Everything is vibration. 

Physics of sound has demonstrated that each substance in our world vibrates at its own natural resonant frequency. All elements of our physical and emotional bodies have this sonic property, including cells, brainwaves, and emotions. 

Using the principles of acoustic resonance and the tools of frequency, timbre, music, and energy, sound can heal the body, mind, and spirit. Therapeutic application of sound enhances overall wellness.

In our daily lives, most of us experience a lack of balance and some amount of stress. This tension is a root cause of illness. Sound, both received and expressed, can vibrate the body back into health by providing a blueprint for physical and emotional stress relief and expression. Consistent vibrations can entrain the mind and body back into a state of stability and balance. Sound has the power to heal, and also to support meditation and relaxation, as well as exploration of consciousness. 

Creating flow in the human system provides context in which transformation can occur. Tuning in to the body's resonant frequencies enables a sound healer to detect irregularities, inconsistencies, blockages, and deficits. Through toning (singing, chant, mantra) and the use of instruments (tuning forks, singing bowls, percussion, woodwinds) as well as subtle movement, the self can return to its natural state of harmony.

These techniques are both ancient and modern, drawing from longstanding traditions as well as progressive research. Viewing wellness through the mindful lens of vibration allows access to a deeper truth that resides in each of us. 

Every sound healing experience is unique, and draws from a range of sonic expression techniques based on individual needs.
