Sound healing is the use of physical sound vibrations for therapeutic benefit. Sound Healing is unique among healing modalities because we can feel its effects through the vibrations it creates in our bodies, and at the same time, it works to balance the subtle energy fields.
Every object has a natural vibratory rate. This is called its resonance. One of the basic principles of using sound as a transformative and healing modality is to understand the idea that every part of the body is in a state of vibration. Every organ, every bone, every tissue, every system–all are in a state of vibration. Now, when we are in a state of health, the body puts out an overall harmonic of health. However, when a frequency that is counter to our health sets itself up in some portion of the body, it creates a disharmony that we call dis-ease.
The physics of sound plays an important part in how sound healing benefits us. Different sound vibrations interact with our physical and energetic bodies in different ways. Sound can be used to open and expand constricted areas, or cleanse and release blockages. It can be used for deep relaxation and also inspiring motivation.
Stress-reduction is the most simple and wide-spread result to receiving sound healing. Stress is the underlying cause of many physical conditions, and it melts away with ease when you are bathed in a sea of sound healing vibrations. Many people have also recovered from life-threatening illnesses such as Cancer and AIDS through the benefits of sound healing therapy.
Sound Healing is effective because it influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies. Emotional imbalances are at the root of many if not all physical diseases, and when we heal our emotional bodies, the physical symptoms disappear. Sound and emotions are deeply connected and can be used to unlock blocked emotions and release them with ease and grace.
Sound Healing can be as simple as being exposed to simple sounds, or as complex as listening to consciously composed sound healing music designed specifically for healing and relaxation.
The sound vibrations are typically produced by sound healing instruments, deemed so by their unique characteristics to produce pure sounds, rich in overtones and harmonics, that interact in a positive way with our physical body, emotions, and subtle energy fields. Though, any sound from any source that is created with intention will have therapeutic benefits. Each session is unique and the sounds are created through intuitive listening and higher guidance.
Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls produce a single pure continuous tone. The sound is extremely relaxing and soothing and penetrates deep into the cellular level of the physical body. The sound of crystal singing bowls reaches deep into the depths of the subconscious to cleanse away emotional blockages and limiting thought forms.
They come in a number of different sizes and pitches, and can be used to target specific energy centers, known as chakras. They are also wonderful meditation aids, enhancing the meditative experience when listened to or played by the person while meditating. Their sound is evocative of angels, ascended masters, higher dimensions, and the ancient civilizations of Lemuria and Atlantis.
Tibetan Bowls have been used by Tibetan Monks and spiritual masters for centuries. Authentic bowls are hand-made, produced with an alchemical combination of seven sacred metals. During the forging process, the monks infuse the bowls with prayers and blessings in the form of ceaseless chanting until the bowls are completed.
Tibetan Bowls produce a basic pitch, but also a rich variety of overtones and harmonics when struck. They are typically played by being struck with a mallet to produce the rich permeating sound. A single bowl will have many varying overtones sound at the same time. It is possible to get them to produce a continuous sound, by tracing the mallet around the outer edge, though it is more difficult to do so than with crystal bowls.
Tibetan bowls can be used for deep relaxation, and also for chakra alignment and attunement. The interplay of several bowls sounding together is an extremely tranquil and profound sensation. The sound can carry you deep into your body to access your latent power of rejuvenation. Steeped in ceremonial tradition, they are a powerful enhancement to personal ritual, meditation, and prayer.
Using Tibetan Singing Bowls for healing is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterized by a hindrance to the flow of energy in the body. When energy flow is hindered, the organ or tissue in question stops vibrating at a healthy frequency, and thus it results in some kind of weakness or illness. The sound frequencies created by Tibetan Singing Bowls restore and optimize the flow of energy in the parts of the body where this is required.
The voice is by far the most powerful sound healing instrument. Through training and inner listening, the voice can contain the most profound healing energies. Only through the voice can the true nature of the human soul be conveyed. Nurturing, healing, and inspiring, the voice can be used to cleanse, purify, and heal the most difficult situations.
Intuitive listening plays an important role when using the voice. By letting the sounds flow freely from the soul, the power of presence becomes apparent, and the healing moment can occur. When the voice is open and the connection with the soul is pure, frequencies of a higher nature can come through. Angelic sounds, shamanic chants, sacred mantras, all can flow freely to produce deep healing on many levels.
Being a most versatile instrument, the voice can create the precise sounds and frequencies that will help challenging blockages unravel and disappear.
“Toning” is a meditative practice of using the voice to release and transmute any physical, emotional, or energetic blockages and to restore balance and vibrant health. Toning is a very grounding practice that restores your communication and relationship with the physical body by creating a bridge between the inner and external environment.
Toning is a simple practice with profound results. I provide introductory workshops and individual tutoring sessions to help you learn the basic techniques of breathwork and body-awareness that will build a foundation for you to develop and deepen your own practice.
Cyma is a proprietary form of cymatic (sound) therapy. In scientific terminology, cymatic therapy is the science of the effects of acoustic stimulation within the audible sound range on biological systems. It is based on the inherent resonance frequencies that apply to the natural harmonic laws of biological life.
Cells are highly structured, electrically charged entities that can be represented as solid-state electronic systems. Their frequency windows can be tuned to receive incoming signals. Biological polymers can be programmed as frequency transmitters, capable to transmitting instruction to the cells.
The human body, an intricately structured biological system composed of these cells, is constantly transmitting bio-electric currents, electromagnetic fields, frequencies and vibrations in the endless, cascading interaction of communication between all living things..
CymaTechnologies International develops instruments that deliver the precise frequencies (or commutations) that have been measured in healthy tissue. Our instruments synchronize aberrant frequencies and restore resonance. This is achieved through the process of entrainment, or the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. It is also defined as a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles.
The goal of Cyma Technologies International is to employ these biological laws and energies by propagating select frequencies through the biological polymer matrix. These frequencies restore the resonance of that system through frequency entrainment, or the mutual phase locking and synchronization of the oscillating structures of that biological system.
Scientists now know that the human body is a dynamic energy system and that the body itself as well as each of our cells, organs and tissues have their own vibratory nature. They have a natural, or resonant, frequency that can become upset or imbalanced. Cyma Technologies International has developed an instrument that delivers precise combinations of frequencies (or “commutations”) associated with healthy tissue and organ systems. When applied to the body, these sound waves help to normalize imbalances and synchronize the cell’s frequency back to its natural healthy state of vibrational resonance.
Like other holistic techniques, Cyma supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
As effective as sound energy healing with Singing bowls is for people, it is even more so with dogs, cats, horses and other pets.
Animals have the capacity to hear more octaves and tones than humans. They, like small children live in present moment and do not complicate the treatment with ‘psychology’, ‘stories’ or ‘monkey mind’. Partly because of this, animals are profoundly affected positively by sound therapy.
