For thousands of years sound therapy has been used as a tool to help with healing and relaxation.  Throughout Asia Himalayan singing bowls have been used for prayer and meditation. Now they are being used for many different things including relaxation and wellbeing.

Sound therapy was formally introduced to the UK in 2000 with the establishment of BAST (British Academy of Sound Therapy).  BAST attempts to treat individuals with fertility issues, chronic pain, cancer, stress-related illnesses, IBS, ME, tinnitus, mild depression, anxiety and arthritis.

Canadian Veterans are finding sound therapy is helping with not only physical illness but also to help balance emotions and quiet a busy mind. Following treatment most people felt calm and relaxed and for some this feeling will last for several days following the treatment.

Through a series of relaxing or stimulating sounds – gongs, drums, bells, bowls, tuning forks and the human voice are all used to try to rebalance the body and mind.

Sound healing therapy uses aspects of music to improve your physical and emotional health and well-being. The person being treated partakes in the experience with a trained sound healing practitioner. Sound healing may involve:

  • Listening to Music
  • Singing Along to Music
  • Moving to the Beat of the Music
  • Meditating
  • Playing an Instrument

There are different types of sound therapy, including vibrational sound therapy, which uses special sounds that produce vibrations thought to improve brain waves. Also guided meditation, neurologic music therapy, singing bowl therapy, tuning fork therapy, and brainwave entrainment,

Sound healing is used to treat symptoms of a number of conditions, including:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression
