The Healing Powers of Sound
Healing Through Sound
Music has been a means of expression for millions of people across the globe. It has been a way for many to escape, and it has been repeatedly proven to help alleviate people’s moods. It can move people to tears and it can make them laugh. But even though we refer to music as some sort of tool that we use to heal and feel better, many experts have actually looked into the power of sound and its impact on one’s overall health.
Healing through sound has been proven to be effective by plenty of experts, as various tones can put us in the perfect state for deep meditation and creative thinking. According to Dr. Mitchell Gaynor of the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York, one reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. He said that if we accept that sound is a vibration, and that vibration is able to touch every part of our physical being, then sound is not only something that we hear through our ears but also through every cell in our bodies.
This is how sound can help address imbalances in the human body and have a positive effect in the treatment of any medical disorder. In fact, sound has been a vital part in the healing process of cancer prevention patients. It is believed that an illness or “disease” is caused by an imbalance in one’s body, or when an organ can sometimes be vibrating “out of tune”. When each and every part of the body is in sync or “in harmony”, only then will the body be considered harmonious or healthy. Fortunately, modern medicine can analyze and measure how sound truly affects a person’s healing process.
But using sound as a tool for healing definitely isn’t something new. Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries as a tool to facilitate healing and meditation. Simply put, Tibetan Singing Bowls create a pulsating tone that helps you relax. The more you listen, the more likely your brainwaves are to be toned, which in turn puts you in a pleasant mental and emotional state.

People have used the sound from Tibetan Singing Bowls to restore the flow of energy into different parts of the body, helping one to be free of pain, depression, stress, and other illnesses. The idea is that these tools encourage the brain to use Theta brainwave frequencies that are usually present during deep relaxation and can be a source of creativity and concentration. Ultimately, Theta brainwaves help promote mind and body healing that can greatly change the way people recover from illnesses.
Sound’s healing power lies in its ability to make us feel a certain way upon hearing it. It has the ability to tap into the self-healing mechanisms of the body which helps us move closer to a state of wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Karma and Luck has a complete line of Crystal Quartz Singing Bowls that can help stimulate and calm the entire body. The sound frequencies that these bowls produce are believed to restore and improve the flow of energy through different parts of the body.
