What is Sound Therapy?
Sound Therapy is a modern alternative therapy that is emerging as a revolutionary form of healing. It is used to balance the body, and it is based upon the fact that all matter is constructed from energy, or frequencies, as is sound and the overtones we find within sounds. Matter therefore responds to sound in a peculiar way as sound frequencies are altered to precise measurements.
Although it seems strange when you first hear of "sound therapy" like it is something strange and destined for the medical research labs, the truth is that the effects are apparent in our every day life... For example, we experience the energizing effect of sound and music every time we hear music with a heavy beat. Just think of the last time you heard a favorite dance hit and couldn't help but to start dancing along.
For example, the Bulgarian Psychiatrist, Gorgi Lazanoff was able to show an increased capacity for learning, superlearning if you will, by playing Baroque music (1700's Bach, Vivaldi, Telemon, Handel) and having his students breathe in rhythm with the beat. It all goes to show that sound and music can have a profound effect on our health, and well being, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally as well.
For those of you interested in exploring the influence of music as a therapy rather than sound as a therapy, we have the Music Therapy by the Stars Decoder. For this Decoder, 180 selected works are classified according to their affinity with the signs of the zodiac. Each star sign divides into five sections: music for relaxation, work, meditation, energy or simply to enjoy. Three special pieces of music have been linked to the sections. If you are an Aquarian and are looking for a meditative composition, simply turn the dial to Aquarius and take note. On the other hand, if you are a Taurus and need inspiration, rotate the dial on page one and let the Decoder guide you. The purpose of this Decoder extends much further. It is designed and intended to be an alternative gateway to classical music for all music lovers. Allow yourself to be surprised by the unexpected and let serendipity guide your choice.
In the growing field of energy medicine it is well known that our universe is created through patterns of frequency. Science is now documenting what mystics of many traditions have known forever. Everything that exists in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms does so on a vibratory basis. This is obvious if you consider that electrons are always moving and vibrating.
"Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter." Albert Einstein
All healing interventions must influence the body by somehow altering its frequency resonance. Healing has often been affected by such modalities as sound, light, music therapy and various other energy medicine techniques that alter the frequency patterns of an individual.
In a similar way, the voice, which we analyze with a computer, is a great indicator of vitality. The voice is one of the most powerful avenues of human expression and as such, provides a very useful analog for the systems of the body. According to Dr. Alfred Tomatis, among others, the voice is not able to reproduce what the ear cannot hear. Perhaps the ear cannot hear what the brain cannot generate. There is evidence that the brain, in addition to being a master chemist, is a very complex tone generator and commands the systems of the body through frequency.
The brain produces waveform patterns that can be measured with a variety of instruments. The voice also produces a waveform pattern that contains a great deal of frequency information that seems to relate to the physical and emotional health and balance of the speaker.
Have a look at the Identi-Phi sound therapy software. You can use it to analyse your own voice using your computer and a microphone plugged into your computer. You might be surprized at the output from the tone analysis from your own voice!
Combining Sound with Light to achieve Brainwave Synchronization
The Brainwave Synchronizer is a Light and Sound device used to control brainwave frequencies and patterns, to achieve specific objectives. These objectives typically include;
- sleep induction
- improved ability to learn
- improved memory
- reaching altered states of consciousness normally only achievable through advanced meditation techniques
- being less anxious and nervous
- being able to handle high pressure situations more easily
The brainwave synchronizer works on the principle of entrainment, whereby the light and sound device creates an oscillating frequency which the brain starts to follow after a period of around 5-6 minutes. When the lights and sound from the synchronizer pulse at the speed of normal brainwaves when a session begins, they quickly synchronize. Your brainwaves will then follow as the light and sound stimulation shifts into the frequencies of another mind state. This is called the frequency following effect, or entrainment. The scientific term when lights are used for this is usually Photic Driving.
Tuning Fork Sound Therapy
Most people think of tuning forks as something the piano tuner uses to tune up the piano. Yet there is another type of tuning fork, one designed to tune up the human body.
Both types of forks work in similar ways. By using Tuning Fork Sound Therapy, your body can be tuned for optimal physical balance, just as the piano is adjusted to perfect pitch.
You really can tune up your body!
Your Body is a Symphony of Frequencies
Each of the organs, glands, and cells in our bodies vibrate at their own specific frequency. These frequencies correspond with musical notes.
For example, a healthy heart vibrates at the frequency of the F note.“The late Edgar Cayce predicted that sound and music therapy would become the medicine of the future.”
Sound frequencies affect everything about us. The correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance our bodies.
When your body is in perfect health and all the parts are vibrating to the correct note, your body is like an orchestra playing beautiful music. Think of the different body parts as musical instruments all vibrating at their own unique frequency or pitch. When the body is in perfect health all parts are playing the right note at the correct tempo, and vibrating in harmony.
Get a Tune up with Tuning Forks
Energy flows through your healthy body like a river, through a network of meridians and chakras.
However stress, negative emotions and thoughts, even the foods we eat affect the flow of energy, causing energy blocks. When the energy gets blocked, the body part where the blockage is can no longer play the right note at the right tempo. When out of harmony the body plays more like the first day of a grade school band practice than a beautiful orchestra! Although we may not be able to hear the bodies unharmonious sounds, the body will display symptoms that let us know when something is wrong and it needs to be brought back in tune.
The powerful sound vibrations of tuning forks can be used to clear the blockages that are impeding the body's flow of energy. The forks work in a similar manner to acupuncture, only without the use of needles.
When the correct tuning fork is placed next to the organ or chakra that is out of harmony, that area will raise its vibration or "pitch" to that of the fork by the process of entrainment.
Instead of masking the symptoms of the diseased organ with harmful drugs, or removing it from the body, we are able correct the organs rate of vibration with sound waves.
How Can I Benefit from a Tune Up?
A tuning fork treatment is non-intrusive, there is no touching, no needles, no pain or manipulation involved.
As the sounds flow through your body, every cell pulsates, resonates and interacts with the powerful vibrations, thus awakening the life energy of the cells and returning you to health and harmony.
