When it comes to a natural method that has powerful healing properties with no downsides or side effects, sound therapy stands as an excellent option. The history of sound therapy dates back thousands of years and today it’s beneficial factors are increasingly being substantiated and recognized by the scientific community. Each method and modality of sound therapy can be used to treat a unique range of health issues. One of the more popular variations in this healing methodology is to utilize tuning forks for healing. Advanced practitioners have been known to use tuning forks with weights affixed to the end so that the client can directly absorb the Healing vibrations. This form of therapy attempts to mimic the effects of acupuncture through a less invasive method as it can targets the same healing points on the body without the need for needles. When it comes to sound healing however, the most popular methods utilize non-tactile procedures. A sound therapy or healing session is not only a relaxing form of treatment but also very powerful with lasting effects.
The overall goal of any type of therapeutic sound healing session is to utilize the sound and vibrations to bring the body back into a natural ‘rhythm’ or vibrational state. Regardless of whether you’re suffering from stress, fear or even anger, over time, these negative vibrations can have a tremendous impact on your body and those around you. They are the antithesis of the positive and peaceful feelings that we should experience in our lives. While we typically have a hard time readjusting our vibrations on our own, we lean towards the use of sound therapy through the principles of resonance and dissonance. Simply stated, natural resonance is a positive feeling of being at peace or in harmony with ourselves and those around us. For example, if you get that warm fuzzy feeling when first meeting someone, this can be characterized as resonance. Dissonance on the other hand represents a lack of harmonious balance. These two opposing forces are traditionally characterized as the yin and the yang. Again, the goal of a sound healing session is to bring forth a more harmonious balance in your body. There are also far more targeted therapeutic uses for sound healing that target specific health issues and conditions.
We all know how important it is to be able to achieve a sense of calm even in times of stress. It is like having an environment of healing energy available to call upon when needed. Individuals who are experiencing a prolonged state of stress and do not have the ability to alleviate it are at increased risk for numerous health conditions. Sound healing is a proven safe and effective solution for high-stress individuals and those experiencing a difficult period in their lives. In the general case of stress or mental anguish, the exact tool or instrument is rarely important. Whether your healer goes with bells, gongs, crystal bowls, tuning forks, something less conventional, or most often, a combination of these, sound healing can have a very positive impact for eliminating stress and bringing a sense of peace back to life. Left untreated, the health consequences associated with a perpetual stress state are too numerous to mention here.
Sound healing in the 21st century has come a long way from its traditional roots and is already accepted in many medical and scientific communities. There are even very specific sound therapy treatments like attuning the spine which uses a specially designed electronic tuning fork attuned to specific frequencies. With time, as more and more people continue to attest to its effects, the discipline of sound healing will continue to evolve and become more and effective.
