Reasons to try a sound bath

“When properly mobilized, sound can specifically entrain the human organism toward the greater harmony and homeostasis that it requires to remain vibrant and to regenerate after injury or illness. The properties of sound medicine—entrainment, harmony and homeostasis—represent the rational and spiritual foundation for a new movement in the healing arts and sciences,” according to Mitchell Gaynor, M.D., the late integrative oncologist who was passionate about using sound to help heal his patients with cancer.

Music and sound used as a tool for healing is deeply rooted in ancient cultures and civilizations. Schools of ancient Egypt and Greece considered healing and sound a highly developed sacred science. The flute and lyre were used to treat illnesses such as gout and sciatica. When illness set in, Native American shamans used their own voice in healing rituals by singing to themselves to facilitate healing. Creating light through vocal harmonics was utilized by Mayan shamans. Hindu Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Kundalini yogic practices have used the breath-chant combination to balance the energetic centers and cleanse the subtle energy body for thousands of years. In early Christianity, Gregorian chants used certain melodic and harmonic structure that helped prepare for accessing a heightened state of divine awareness and power.

The common denominator in all of the ancient healing wisdom is the knowledge and understanding that humans are beings of vibration. Everything vibrates; it is vibration that we see, hear, feel and experience on our earth journeys. When our bodies are ill, when we have chronic pain, depression and anxiety, it is our bodies’ way of telling us we are not in vibrational harmony. Is “dis-ease” a physical manifestation of stored pain, trauma, emotional blockages or deep conditioned thoughts and beliefs that need to be brought to the surface, attended to and released? How does sound and music help to attain whole being healing? When body and mind are given the proper tools for energetic release and vibrational alignment, the body can then heal from the inside out instead of a pharmaceutical drug masking a symptom of the “root” cause.

Use of Tibetan singing bowls can bring brainwaves from alpha to theta, which creates a deep state of relaxation, harmony and balance. Because of the multiple harmonics, the sound can have the effect of bringing both hemispheres of the brain into synchronization. Sound can be the medium that transports a person to an elevated state of consciousness. Through journey inner clarity, peace and the healing knowledge can be attained.

 

When the body is allowed to be in a non-resistant mode, “ease” not “dis- ease” can begin. Gongs have been used for more than 4,000 years; attending a gong bath is a powerful method for reducing stress and breaking up emotional blockages. The gong creates a profoundly relaxing ocean of sound that activates the parasympathetic nervous system to balance the over-amped, over-taxed sympathetic nervous system.

 

In my own life as a musician coming from a family of highly gifted musicians, music has played an enormous role in my life. From choirs of over 200 children, to composing and producing 7 albums, to scholarships and awards music has undoubtedly been a main source of my life’s work. It wasn’t until going through my own traumatic life threatening illness in 2007 after my daughter was born that I was able to see the relationship between sound and our bodies ability to heal itself. My awakening awakened me to my purpose to further use my gifts as a way to help others deeply heal. 

Not only can the perfect sounds bring ones cells back into harmony but it can train the brain to go beyond bringing us into higher states of consciousness. And this higher state of consciousness is needed at this time on earth. In the end, these sacred instruments can allow each of us to tap into the ancient wisdom within our bodies, and connect to our intuitive knowledge and higher self. They can bring us back into alignment while raising our individual and collective vibration. When emotional, spiritual and physical bodies are in accord with each other, illness fades, pain disappears, and the divine path shines bright.
