Sound therapy is also called sound energy massage. It is a powerful healing and relaxation session lasting from 1 to 2 hours depending on the individual problems and needs.
The Master Sound Bowl, which weighs 2-3kg, is placed on the body producing low-frequency sound. Throughout the session the bowl is being moved on different areas of the body and striked quite strongly, producing powerful and healing vibrations. The healing bowl is designed by the oldest sound bowls manufacturer in Nepal specifically to produce deep sound to penetrate our skin, fascia, organs, and down to the bones.
We begin the session with opening the energy channel through feet, then going through the main chakra points, then expanding to the legs and internal organs. When the back of the body is completed, the bowl is moving to the front of the body, again following chakra points, legs, internal organs.
The deep sound vibration causes relaxation of the tissues and opens the lymphatic system, bringing the body into a state where it can heal itself. The session is completed with a sound bath including tingsha bells, Koshi Chimes and a selection of various Tibetan singing bowls.
In order to understand how sound therapy works on our body, it’s important to know that water passes the vibrations 5 times faster than the air. The amount of water in the human body can be up to 70%. Tibetan sound bowl therapy is an effective form of healing the body on so many levels.
Sound therapy helps to work on many levels of personal development. It has been used to enhance memory, learning, creativity and energy. Sound therapy helps relax the brain and muscles in the body, reducing the clutter in our minds – making it easier to retain information.
Almost everything we experience in the universe is simply our perception of energy, frequency, and vibration. 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.
Singing bowls can be found throughout the Himalayans and in various countries such as China, Thailand and Japan. Used for meditation, their focused tone is supposed to provide clarity of mind. The magic of the sound was known and practised many centuries ago by ancient cultures of India, Tibet, Egypt and China. Traditional, ancient instruments used to produce low-frequency sounds are known to be healing for the mind and body.
