“As our basic essence is vibrational in nature. It is inevitable that sound has some sort of impact on us”- Wayne Perry
Sound healing therapy is growing in popularity.
More and more, sound healing therapies- from music therapy to sound baths- are being used across North America. At North West Vibrational Acupuncture and Massage in Central Northwest Calgary, sound acupuncture is used as a stand alone treatment or as an adjunct to either traditional acupuncture and or massage. Why add sound therapy to massage or traditional acupuncture? Below are a few reasons-
Sound Healing Therapy Reduces Tension and Stress
Research into the power of sound healing is promising. Psychology Today states in one of its articles there is strong evidence that music has both mental and physical health benefits. Studies have found people experience significantly less tension and anxiety after attending sound meditations, in which singing bowls, gongs and other sound healing instruments were used.
Sound Healing Therapy May Help Alleviate Pain
Sound based vibrational treatments have been shown to help folks suffering from arthritis, menstrual pain, and other types of muscle pain and stiffness. Although the mechanism of how sound healing works is not clear, one theory suggests sound healing stimulates touch fibers on our body that affect our ability to perceive pain. In Traditional Chinese Medicine pain is a form of stagnation. In sound acupuncture which is also known as vibrational acupuncture, sound is used to stimulate acupuncture points used traditionally to alleviate stagnation and improve and boost energy (qi) flow.
Sound Healing Therapy Promotes Overall Well Being
Sound healing has been found useful to boost immune function, decrease the risk of heart disease, reduce high blood pressure and even lower cholesterol levels etc. Healthline states music has been found to be more effective that prescription drugs in reducing anxiety before surgeries. Sound therapy is also useful to improve sleep. Have you ever used music to help you fall to sleep? Sound therapy can also improve our mood. Good sleep and having a good mood are important aspects of our overall well-being.
