VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY

Hand Hammered Himalayan Bowls

 

Often called Tibetan Singing Bowls, they do not actually originate from Tibet, and were not designed as the sound instruments we see today. In truth, they originate in form and function as food and cooking containers. However, the real power of these unique, hand made, brass bowls is in their ability to deliver deep vibrations to relax the body and complex harmonic signatures which soothes the mind like nothing else can.

HOW DOES VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY WORK?

 

Between the stress of  work, home and the news media, most of us live in a persistent state of sympathetic nervous system overdrive. (fight, flight or freeze) A professional Vibrational Sound Therapy Session will drop you into a deep relaxation, stimulating the parasympathetic (rest, digest, heal) side of the autonomic nervous system. This action dilates blood vessels, increasing circulation, moving blood through the liver for filtering. Coupled with the vibrations literally stimulating every cell in your body, toxins are encouraged to be naturally expelled through the lymphatic and circulatory systems. You will come off the table feeling relaxed, refreshed and energized.

THE POWER OF SOUND

Recently, western science has begun to confirm long held beliefs that sound has the power to influence all forms of matter. We have seen sound used to identify birth defects, the gender of an unborn child, locate ships or even small fish in the vast open water. There is even a machine which can boil water using nothing but sound waves. Through the power of sound we can feel alarmed, excited, angry, relaxed or even love.

VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY

The addition of this therapeutic practice to our array of integrated health services allows us to provide our clients and patients with yet another pathway towards a deeper understanding of themselves. When the body is relaxed and the mind is quiet, the heart reveals itself. It is from this place of peace, true healing can begin.

A PRACTITIONER'S TRAINING PATH

A Certified Sound Therapy  Practitioner is knowledgeable in the history, manufacturing and various techniques used to sound Himalayan hand hammered bowls. They are trained to very gently and  simultaneously manage multiple bowls positioned on your body, while applying subtle Measured Strike Techniques to generate vibrations and soothing sounds. Combining these trained skills enhances your ability to reach a deep, relaxed state on the table. Additionally, SimplyAware Certified Therapists bring decades of Qigong training, heightened mental focus and the ability to hold a sacred, energetic space for the duration of your bowl session.

SOUND & VIBRATIONAL INFLUENCE - PHYSICAL

The human body is roughly 65% water.  Netter's Atlas of Human Physiology breaks it down as follows:

  • Intracellular Fluids - 70%
  • Extracellular Fluids - 37.5%
    • Plasma - 20%
    • Interstitial Fluids - 79%
    • Transcellular Fluids - 1%

 

We also know that sound travels much faster through fluids than air. Combine these facts and you have a therapeutic practice which stimulates the human body on an intracellular level, Patients frequently report feeling "tingly all over" after a bowl session.

SOUND & VIBRATIONAL INFLUENCE - MENTAL

Humans experience five different types of electrical patterns or “brain waves” which are measured in Hertz.  (cycles per second) Each serves a specific purpose in human functioning. In order for us to function optimally, we need to have a "balanced dose" of these frequencies.

Delta Waves ~ 0 Hz to 4 Hz

  • Strongest in infants
  • Stimulates Para-sympathetic nervous system (rest, digest, heal)
  • Present during deep relaxation
  • Necessary for restorative, healing sleep

Theta Waves ~ 4 Hz to 8 Hz

  • Improves intuition
  • Stimulates creativity
  • Supports restorative sleep

Alpha Waves ~ 8Hz to 12 Hz

  • Helps induce relaxation
  • Acts as bridge between conscious and subconscious

Beta Waves ~ 12 Hz to 40 Hz

  • Stimulates focus, memory and problem solving

Gamma Waves ~ 40 Hz to 100 Hz

  • Increases learning, memory and information processing.
  • Engages / Binds the senses to a memory
  • Supports REM Sleep

 

The beauty of hand hammered bowls is they deliver layers of sound with each strike. This complex, yet soothing "sound bath" causes the brain to process the layers of sound binaurally which evokes a reduction in brainwave frequency. The lower the frequency of the brain, the deeper the relaxation.

SOUND & VIBRATIONAL INFLUENCE - EMOTIONAL

Of the three levels of human interaction with sound and vibrations, emotions are the most familiar to us. Hear a favorite song and we smile from the heart; hear a loud crash and we are jolted with fear. A soothing vibration comforts while a rattling vibration disrupts. Certified Vibrational Sound Therapists us the Measured Strike Technique which eliminates the "surprise strike" or accidental "clang" which would jolt you right out of your relaxed state. When the body relaxes, and the mind becomes quiet, the emotions settle. It is from this place of peace that the deepest human answers can be discovered.
