Q:How does sound therapy ease anxiety and depression? A: Sound is the first sense to develop fully in the womb, connecting us to the world. We are emotionally connected to sounds, whether it’s the trickling of rain, a thunderstorm, or the way a song makes us feel. While psychotherapy addresses anxiety in the thoughts and mind, sound therapy addresses it in a different way. The instruments help light up different parts of the brain and each evokes different emotions. The instruments also vibrate in a way that activate the right and left brain in a back and forth pattern called binaural frequency which is essential for healing and theta brain states (when in this meditative state, people can feel a sense of tranquility, like you are flying or floating). By entering a relaxed state, the client can process an experience and help to release old negative feelings that they have been holding onto.
Q: Is a sound bath safe for everyone? A: Due to the already unstable nature of pregnancy during the first trimester, and also due to the vibrational sound frequencies, a sound bath is not recommended for women within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres, and Epilepsy, which are sound sensitive, may be triggered by the sound frequencies. Metal implants, pins and screws may be affected by the sound vibrations, and the rhythm of a pace maker may also be affected.
Q:How can sound heal? A: Existing research confirms sound healing synchronizes brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation, helping to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the cells in our bodies.
Q:What is the connection between sound healing and meditation? A: Meditation is the art of bringing awareness and consciousness into our daily lives. Through meditation, we become an observer of ourselves and of our center, a place without judgment or negativity. Through sound healing, we artificially put our body in into a Theta state, our brainwaves between 4 and 7 Hz – something that normally occurs in REM (rapid eye movement) sleep or deep, prolonged meditation – allowing access to our subconscious and super-conscious. This is the state in which energy shifts and insights and healing are possible.
Q:How many sessions do I need to come to in order to see results? A: Energetic shifts can happen immediately during a session or may take several days to develop. Multiple and continuous sessions can be beneficial for creating and maintaining radical energetic shifts. Q: What can a sound bath treat? A: Research has shown that sound has a powerful and immediate impact on the whole body, helping to bring it back into harmony and promote healing. Whether you come for a regular “tune up” or relaxation session, or have a chronic long-term illness, sound healing could help you to enjoy a better quality of life.
Q: I am not sick so how could I benefit from a Sound Bath? A: Even if you are in the best of health, regular sessions can strengthen your system and therefore help prevent future ill health. Sound baths not only addresses physical illness, they also help to balance the emotions, quieten a busy mind and give you amazing relaxation. Sound is very powerful and could also help you reach your highest potential. Many people have changed their lives by working with healing sounds.
Q: Would a Sound Bath help me sleep? A: Most people report of a good night’s sleep after a sound bath, which often extends into a calm, centered feeling the next day. The more you can bring relaxation into your life the better you will be able to sleep and bring a new calmness to your life.
Q: Will a Sound Bath bring up old issues or make me emotional? A: While all participants take in the same sounds that are being played, each person’s response and experience will be different. Some people feel deeply relaxed, while others say they have life-changing spiritual experiences. Each person gets exactly what they need in that moment. Many participants say it is hard to put into words the experience of a sound bath. Sound Healing can sometimes clear issues without you consciously realizing it. However, some issues may surface which will require further work.
