Have you ever heard of sound healing? If you haven’t here how to start profiting from its benefits, you don’t need much!
Everything has a vibrational frequency, objects, plants, rocks and ourselves. Frequencies impact our feelings and this is the reason why songs can change our mood and trigger different emotions.
How does it work?
In a healing session –or sound bath–, the person is typically in a horizontal position on the floor or a yoga mat while listening to the practitioner playing a variety of instruments and bathe the person in soothing sounds and vibrations. The sound frequencies slow down your brain waves to a deeply restorative state.
The instruments usually used are singing bowls, drums and gongs are often used in sessions, almost any instrument, however, can be used in sound healing if they are used with the proper intention. Crystal bowls are tuned to the notes of the chakras and the gong helps release tension in the body and at the same time stimulate the nervous system.
Benefits of sound healing
It is super relaxing
The sounds return harmony to our body, so this sole benefit is worth trying. It helps deal with anxiety, depression and stress and it promotes well-being.
