How does Sound Healing Work?
This is a loaded question! Haha! But I love it!
Lets start here for today: Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency in which the brainwave can attune to.
By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to “down-shift” our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur). The goal of a sound healing session (usually) is to get you into the theta and delta brainwave states so your body can go into its own natural healing processes.
Depending on what you are supporting someone through in a session, you may use instruments like drums, gongs, and shakers to create this steady rhythm, however, you can also create a subtle rhythm using Quartz Crystal bowls that soothes as it is entraining.
Want to learn more about sound healing? Sound Healing 101 is coming up Saturday, July 27th and for those of you ready to dive in deep! Sound Healing Certification starts August 19th! You will want to register for either of these classes SOON! I keep the classes small for more time with instruments and conversation.✨ I look forward to seeing you in class!
