SOUND THERAPY has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, improve learning abilities, increase focus and concentration, improve short-term memory loss and promote an overall sense of well-being. As well as improving emotional and social development, cognitive and motor functioning, and psychological and psychiatric health.
Almost everything we experience in the universe is simply our perception of waves. When sound waves reach our ears, they are converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes sound. Once sound waves reach our brains, they trigger responses in our bodies. This process alters our emotions, releases hormones, and triggers certain impulses. Since sounds come at different frequencies and we too emit our own waves, healing with sound happens by matching frequencies to those that are conducive to healing and relaxation.
There are a number of methods, instruments, and techniques for using sound therapy. MHC uses the vibrations of singing bowls, rattles, drums, tingshas and sticks to restore the normal vibratory frequency of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual layers of the body.
30- or 60-minute Sound Therapy sessions are available at MHC.
