Being healthy does not just mean being physically healthy. It is important to ensure that your mind is also in good health, and that you are spiritually and emotionally well too. But how can you achieve overall good health? Is there a way to achieve balance in your mind, body, and spirit? Yes, there is, say the experts at Maloca Sound. It comes in the form of sound healing.
What is Sound Healing?
Sound healing is a practice that involves the use of various vibrations and sounds to encourage the body and mind to relax and feel less stressed. The sounds and vibrations are created with instruments such as tuning forks, chimes, drums, and gongs. Sometimes, sounds come from the person running the session in the form of singing or chanting.
How Does Sound Healing Work?
What many people do not realize is that our bodies are made up of atoms that are constantly vibrating at different frequencies. Everybody vibrates at a different frequency, and this can be influenced by environmental factors such as the surroundings we are in or our emotions and thoughts. We tend to vibrate at a higher frequency when we are happy and healthy and a lower frequency when we are stressed or ill.
The idea behind sound healing is that the different sounds and vibrations played can have a positive impact on the frequency at which a person is vibrating. Sound waves can affect the brain and induce feelings of deep relaxation. This in turn promotes healing and improves overall health and wellbeing.
Who Can Benefit from Sound Healing?
Sound healing is designed to alter a person’s vibration frequency. So, for those who are vibrating at a low frequency, different sounds are played that can affect their brain waves. Once in a state of deep relaxation, stress levels are reducedand the body can then start to heal itself. This has been known to have a positive impact on physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing, creating a balance that improves overall health.
Sound healing is often used as a complementary therapy for those struggling with mental and physical conditions such as anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
What is Sound Healing Like?
If you are attending sound healing for the first time, you might be wondering what it is going to be like. It is important to remember that the type of sound healing you have will determine what happens during the session. However, if you were having a sound bath, for example, you would sit or lie down in a comfortable position and just listen as the facilitator played various instruments or made a number of sounds with his voice. All you need to do is lie there and allow the sounds to flow over you.
Sometimes sound healing is a more immersive experience where participants will play some of the instruments or sing along with the various chants.
The wonderful thing about sound healing is that you can practice it alone at home with a recorded sound session, or you can work directly with a sound healer either in a group setting or on a one-to-one basis.
Sound healing has long been used to promote healing and can help to provide an overall sense of wellbeing. It is used today alongside traditional treatments for a variety of mental and physical health conditions, but some people incorporate it into their regular self-care routine as a way balancing their mind, body, and spirit. Sound healing can be practiced at home or with a sound healer in a group or individual setting.
