If every sound is vibration and if the vibration touches each and every cell of our body, we can understand that we don't perceive sound only with the ears, but with all cells in our body.
Stress reduction is one of the most important results of receiving sound therapy. Stress is the underlying cause of many physical conditions and it melts away with ease when you are bathed in a sea of sound healing vibrations.
Sound Healing is so effective because it influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies.
Emotional imbalances are at the root of many physical diseases and when we heal our emotional bodies, the physical symptoms disappear. Sound and emotions are deeply connected. Human emotions have their immediate expression through sound, and it is often the repression of the sound of the emotions that creates emotional blockages. Conversely, sound can be used to unlock the blocked emotions and release them with ease and grace.
An increasing number of mainstream medical and education institutions around the world use healing affects of Himalayan singing bowls and gongs as a vital process of cancer treatment.
Deepak Chopra Centre in California has found that the sound of Himalayan singing bowls is chemically metabolized in the body as the endogenous opioid, which works as internal medicine and pain reduction.

What is sound healing? In short, it’s a practice that uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) in order to relax your mind and body. Some proponents also believe it can relieve certain ailments, including anxiety and insomnia.
Sound healers (often called “sounders”) say that it works by lowering blood pressure, improving circulation and reducing respiratory rates. Science says, well, not a lot. While there are plenty of studies on the benefits of music and meditation on well-being, few large-scale clinical studies have looked at sound healing in particular.
Why is it so trendy right now? Like a lot of other wellness practices (mindfulness meditation, crystals, etc.), sound healing is having a major moment right now—but it’s actually been used by cultures like the Aboriginal peoples in Australia and Tibetan monks for centuries. Credit the recent trend to celebrity endorsements (Robert Downey Jr. and Charlize Theron are both fans) and a general increase of interest in all things wellness.
What does it feel like? “Simply put, someone can expect to feel very calm after a session, with a profound sense of well-being,” explains Jas Neal of Tune Studio in New York City. “Issues which may have appeared dramatic or urgent no longer carry as much weight as before,” she adds.
And if you’ve ever been in a kundalini yoga class, then you’ve already tried it (chanting is one form of sound healing). Sessions vary from just 15 minutes to several hours and can take place on your own with headphones or in a studio with others. But regardless of time and place, the effect should be the same—a general feeling of relaxation and contentment.
So, should I try it? Here’s the thing: Sound healing hasn’t been scientifically proven to actually heal anything, although there are some studies that suggest it may be beneficial to general well-being.
But modern-day life is pretty damn stressful, and if you’ve tried other ways to relax with little success, this might help. In fact, some people find it less challenging than meditation because the sound keeps their mind occupied, making it easier to enter into deep states of calm. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some ocean sounds to chill out to.
