Sound Healing – What is it?
Sound and music have been used since ancient times for healing and transformation. Indeed it is one of the most ancient forms of healing known to man and used by many cultures worldwide. The most well known traditions are those of the Tibetans with bowls, gongs and toning voices, Shamans with drumming and rattles and the Australian Aborigines with didgeridoo and clapsticks. But Egyptians were also devotees of vowel sounds in their rituals and Pythagoras used music as medicine in ancient Greece circa 500 BC.
However, today sound healing is more popular then ever before and is a rapidly growing field of energy medicine. Modern science now supports the belief that all matter comes from vibration or sound. The therapeutic application of sound is a powerful way of restoring health and wellness to mind, body and spirit.
