“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” — Dr. Mitchell Gaynor
The following benefits do not contain any medical claims and solely reflect the responses of people who have undergone sound healings.
Sound activates “The Relaxation Response” which creates a cascade of positive physical and emotional health benefits. Dr. John Beaulieu showed how sounding musical intervals such as the perfect fifth caused a spike in nitric oxide within the body. When cells are puffing nitric oxide in natural rhythmic cycles, we experience these benefits:
Enhances cell vitality, vascular flow and heart healing
Energized immune system and increased ability to prevent and fight infections due to the elimination of bacteria and viruses at a micro-level.
Greater levels of energy and stamina from reduction of bodily stress
Great well-being due to the balancing of the autonomic nervous system
Signals the Limbic System to return to a calm state which gradually helps the body to become better at self-regulation and more resilient to stressors.
Relaxes muscles which in turn can reduce pain from tension and spasms.
Increases circulation which nourishes the cells and organs
Lowers Blood pressure lowers which reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack
Slows the heart rate and improves heart rate variability (HRV) which is an indicator of stress resilience.
Improves joint function and flexibility
Improves digestion and natural cleansing
Other reported physical benefits include:
Decreases pain through a combination of increased relaxation and the release of ‘happy’ hormones
Deepens sleep and activates lucid dreaming
Elimination of cancerous tumors (through playing harmonic intervals inducing dissolution of the masses)
Improved cellular regeneration
Kidney stones and bunions disappearing
Ovarian cysts shrinking in size
Reduction in number and severity of headaches
Relieves the sensation of shortness of breath and tightness in chest
Brings harmony to the heart’s rhythm
Relief from chronic fatigue
Strengthens body’s self-healing ability
Sound induces cathartic release of negative-destructive emotions and resonance with positive-constructive emotions.
Sound clears our emotional body. The subtle energy of our ‘negative’ emotions can create blockages within us that result in disease. The harmonics of sound return us to a state of emotional well-being as the sound itself clears the energies that are blocking the flow of energy within us.
Sound healing improves our overall mood, increases our level of patience, diminishes frustration and
Experiencing sound healing can help us to become better at articulating the subtleties of our emotions and improve our ability to communicate with others.
Sound brings up unpleasant feelings so that we can embrace them and become whole. Healing leaves us more confident, assertive and empowered than ever to live the life of our dreams!
Sound eliminates stress-related disorders and anxiety by resonating you with the feeling of peace so that you always return to that resonance when stress and anxiety arise.
Sound healing opens us to the emotional stability that allows for us to handle life’s challenges with greater ease and grace.
Peace of Mind. Sound healing does what many modalities can’t: It neutralizes the constant chatter of the voice in our heads to allow us to be present to our actual experience.
The mental silence we experience is deeply healing in its own right but can also lead to sudden insights and revelations.
Mental clarity results from cultivating stillness within the sound. As we begin to see more clearly, our actions and decisions become more refined and reflect our inner-harmony.
Amplifies creativity as it opens up space within us to realize our infinite potential.
Improves the ability to focus and develop a more advanced mind.
Sound shows us the power of the mind-body connection. In a healing, you can feel how your thoughts are impacting the physical healing taking place.
Allows you to see the gaps between your thoughts which gives you insight into the relativity of time. Knowing how you perceive time literally gives you more time as you adjust your awareness to be more present to life and what you want instead of the circumstances that limit you.
Dissipates ‘brain fog’ and improves organizational skills
Induces an expanded state of consciousness that can completely change your way of thinking and perceiving the world. Sound healing enhances our awareness by shifting our consciousness away from thinking and reacting in the mind to being and acting from the heart.
Sound returns us to the state of wholeness and completion. We are already whole but sound reminds us of our natural state by clearing the programming that we are anything less than perfect!
Sound brings us to a state of personal realization where we can see the path our destiny and have the intuition to follow our heart’s desire for purpose, connection, expression and growth.
Sound silences the chatter of our ego mind which allows our awareness to travel into different dimensions of our self and the universe.
Sound opens us to experience our true nature as part of the cosmic intelligence we call God or Prime Creator. Through sound, we experience a non-dual state of oneness with the source. Such experiences are a window into our divine purpose and guide us to serve others and ourselves by following our highest calling.
Sound causes us to resonate with joy, gratitude and a fresh approach to living in harmony with the whole!
