Sound Healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of relaxation and peace, well being and better health.
Every atom, cell, tissue, organ and bone in our bodies is vibrating and that vibration produces sound. Since we are all vibrating with sound, we can use it to promote health in our lives. Through sound, we can change the rhythms of our brain waves, our heart beat and our respiration affecting our overall health not just on a physical level, but emotionally and spiritually as well.
The border between Alpha and Theta brain waves is of the greatest importance to the healing of body, mind and spirit. And it is also the goal of a Tibetan Bowl session. This narrow band of waves produces waves that travel at 7-8 (Hertz) cycles per second. This is the precise frequency of the earth's electromagnetic field.
When our brain's produce alpha-theta waves, not only are we synchronized with the heartbeat of planet earth, but intelligence, creativity, higher achievement in any area and self-healing mechanisms of the body are activated. When our brains are in this state, the body is in a state of harmony and the central nervous system reduces input from the peripheral nervous system which allows it to expand its range of functioning.
During a Healing session Tibetan singing bowls are struck and sung in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics at the frequency of "AUM" or "OM". This sound frequency, known as that of Perfection, impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being.
Sessions take place fully clothed on a mat on the floor. Bowls are placed and played on specific parts of your body and head in order to harmonize your chakras (energy centers).
Clients are asked to wear comfortable clothing without buttons, zippers or jewelry.
HOW IT WORKS
Tibetan singing Bowls can also be used as an aid for Meditation sessions.
Meditation has many benefits, including a better emotional well-being, stress relief and a deeper spiritual connection with your Inner Self. Meditating with Singing Bowls is an excellent practice, as their music provides a strong point of focus and serves as a reminder to stay in the present moment.
The sound vibrations emitted by the Tibetan singing bowls are rich in natural harmonics, which are the healing component of music, triggering alertness, concentration and deep relaxation.
The practitioner will first guide you through breathing techniques. Relaxed breathing is essential to create a centered and focused state of mind when you are meditating.
After you have attained the proper state of mind, the singing bowls are stricken at different frequencies to reach the purpose of meditation. Along with the sound of the bowls, you will be guided through your meditation practice.
