How Does Sound Healing Work?

How does sound healing work? Sound healing works differently depending on the person who is having a sound healing session. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes in sound healing therapy and starts each massage session with an abridged version of sound healing. Additionally, you can have a sound healing session in an individual setting or a group setting. Wondering how sound healing works? Read on to learn more.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing is a natural therapy that helps to lower stress and anxiety. It uses different tools (more on them below) to generate sounds, vibrations, and frequencies that help your brain, and by extension the rest of your body, re-set and de-stress.

It has a number of different names, including:

  • Music therapy
  • Vibrational therapy
  • Sound bathing
  • Sound meditation

Whether you have a sound healing therapy session in-person or through guided meditation, it can help re-set your energies and help you feel better overall. As mentioned above, Aruna performs individual and group sound healing therapy sessions.

What Tools are Used During Sessions?

During a sound healing session, Aruna will use different tools to make the sounds, frequencies, and vibrations. Whether the tools are used individually or to enhance the sound healing experience, they will ultimately help you feel better.

Some of the tools Aruna may use during a session include:

  • Tibetan singing bowls
  • Bamboo sticks
  • Tuning forks
  • Recorded sounds from nature

As the different sounds are played during your session, all you need to do is relax. The sounds will work with your brain to help you relax and reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety.

How Does Sound Healing Help Me?

Sound healing is known for reducing stress and anxiety for people who participate in the different sessions. The sounds, frequencies, and pitches you hear during the session help your brain relax. As your brain relaxes, it can start to produce less of specific hormones, especially cortisol, which is known as the stress hormone. The less cortisol in your body, the more relaxed you feel. Additionally, sound healing can help break through certain energy blockages you may experience, helping you feel more like your true self.

Is Sound Healing the Same for Everyone?

While everyone can participate in a sound healing session, each person will have an individualized experience during the session. For instance, if you take part in a group sound healing session, some people will hear higher frequencies while others hear lower frequencies. There’s no right or wrong way to hear the frequencies. Instead, your brain will focus on the different frequencies depending on what it needs to hear to lessen stress and anxiety. Additionally, you’ll hear different pitches and frequencies depending on the way Aruna holds the bowls in her hands.
