In today’s busy world full of distractions and stimuli, alternative healing methods are on the rise. Sound healing has become a popular tool to improve focus, reduce stress, increase happiness, and even manage physical pain without the side effects of pharmaceuticals. It’s highly accessible and favored by both spiritual principles and modern research.
Your own search for inner healing, peace, and personal growth may have recently led you to the world of sound. It’s normal to have questions before you explore a new healing modality. Being informed results in the best experience.
So, what is sound healing, really? What can it do for you? Discover the answers with this beginner’s guide.
What is sound healing? Believe it or not, you may already know.
Remember your favorite concert? That concert. The one where you could feel the music in your bones. Close your eyes. Picture yourself there. Hear the sounds. Feel the vibration. Maybe you were near the stage at a local venue, or outdoors at a large festival. Wherever it was, you became one with sound.
No matter the location or style of music, feeling the sensation of each note pulsing through our bodies brings us joy. It makes us feel alive. This is sound healing.
An ancient therapeutic method, sound healing has persisted across cultures and continents for thousands of years. It is a form of vibrational medicine that harnesses sound waves to promote well-being.
Healing instruments such as singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and tuning forks are designed to produce vibrations at key frequencies that can be felt deeply throughout the body and its energy systems. Introducing frequency and vibration has the potential to profoundly impact our mental and emotional states.
How does sound healing work? It’s all in the rhythm.
There’s a reason the feeling of an amazing concert remains with us for a lifetime. It’s no coincidence that your mood starts to lift whenever your favorite song plays.
This is the beauty of sound and vibration interacting with the body at an energetic level. It can invigorate us. It can soothe us. It can completely change our internal state. Now, imagine a sound experience intentionally curated to shift your energy in a desired way.
Sound healers use their knowledge of frequency and vibration to target specific areas of the body at all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. As sound waves move through us, our natural rhythms and energy centers can respond, releasing tension, negativity, and other mental blocks in favor of a more balanced state.
In biomusicology, the study of music from a biological viewpoint, this process is known as entrainment. It’s why we naturally begin to nod our heads or sway our hips, almost subconsciously, to the beat of a song.
Experienced sound healers understand that sound is medicine. They generate each note with precision and intention, creating sound patterns that flow directly to the brain and nervous system. True sound healing will guide individuals beyond a place of relaxation and into new states of consciousness. These subconscious states are where deep healing and transformation begin.
Shift your frequency. Resonate with vibration.
Rebecca’s background in the healing arts led her to develop and pioneer Subconscious Sound™: a proprietary method that combines vibrational healing and shadow work for personal empowerment and intuitive development. Using unique combinations of up to 24 instruments, her practice eases participants into a hypnagogic state where the conscious mind is at rest. In this resting state, individuals can better dissolve old habits and negative thought patterns.
Subconscious Sound™ sessions can support those who aim to:
- Improve sleep quality
- Lessen physical tension and pain
- Enhance creativity
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Heighten intuition
- Increase energy and motivation
