Sound therapy is a therapeutic modality that employs sound and vibration to create change in your nervous system. These shifts in the nervous system and brain can effect not only how you feel psychologically, but also reduce pain and tension in your musculature. It is a gentle form of relaxation accessible to those whose sensitivity makes massage or acupuncture uncomfortable, yet powerful enough to have a noticeable effect. I am a Vibrational Sound Therapy Certified Practitioner (VSTCP) certified through the Vibrational Sound Association, and primarily use Himalayan singing bowls in my practice.
The complex tones of Himalayan singing bowls can activate the parasympathetic nervous system (which supports digestion and sleep) and lead you to states of deep relaxation and meditation, as well as making space for insights and creativity.
To get the most from your meditation, please set up for your at home sound bath in an area where you can sit in meditation or lie down comfortably and remain undisturbed for the duration. For best sound quality wear headphones or listen on a sound system, rather than your device audio.
