Vibrational Sound

Vibrational Sound Heals?

It is an internationally recognized and scientifically proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace and well being.

Drumming effectively clears energy blocks and promotes healing. Drumming works with the life force in a profound way on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

The drum has been used for healing purposes for thousands of years in tribal societies through their shamanic traditions to communicate with the spirit world as well as a tool for social integration and to restore harmony. According to West-African wisdom teachings, emotional disturbance manifests as an irregular rhythm and as a vibration that blocks vital physical processes. Regular, even rhythms are regarded as a sign of health, these rhythms can heal the patient by touching him/her in an immediate and powerful way, removing blockages and releasing tension.

Ancient Himalayan Singing Bowls may be “struck and sung” in specific rhythmic patterns, creating vibrational harmonics. The sound frequency impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. Harmonic vibrations engage the Relaxation Reflex. In response, the heart rate slows, breathing slows and deepens, the blood pressure drops, muscle tension relaxes, and one’s metabolism slows and disrupts the pain reflex. Modern medicine can now measure and confirm the benefits of sound therapy as a means to promote healing.
