What is Sound Therapy?

Sound Therapy has been used by various cultures for eons as a powerful healing method, using vibrational frequencies to help produce a state of harmony and balance, or resonance, in our bodies, minds, and spirits. Pythagoras was the first known person to use sound as a healing tool using interval and frequency.



 



How Does It Work?

Sound therapy has been shown in studies to affect the psychology and physiology of the body by influencing brainwave frequencies. In this state many different therapeutic processes can occur.

It induces a deep meditation, or an altered state of consciousness (ASC), allowing your body to heal itself at a cellular level. This works by facilitating shifts in our brainwaves, using rhythm and frequencies to move from our normal conscious beta state, to a relaxed alpha state, to theta, a deep meditative state, and optimally delta, where sleep and healing can occur.

Medical studies have shown that Sound Therapy is beneficial in reducing stress levels, by actively reducing cortisol levels when the meditative state is reached. Ailments such as insomnia, inability to focus, infertility, physical issues and mental health diseases have been shown to benefit from this form of therapy.

It is now widely accepted that most illness, or dis-ease, is stress related. Therefore treatment methodologies that promote relaxation and help reduce stress can be a very effective way to prevent and treat illness. Through Sound Therapy, your body can vibrate at its optimum frequency, creating an ultimate environment for wellness to occur.

Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor, an oncologist and clinical assistant professor of medicine at Cornell University in New York, and author of "The Healing Power Of Sound", says that sound "can lower blood pressure, reduce cardiac complications among patients who have recently suffered heart attacks, reduce stress hormones during medical testing and boost natural opiates". He considers sound healing an integrative complementary practice with orthodox western medicines, and uses it in his own practice.




What Can I Expect ?

Before each session, Sharon will ask about your medical history and any current health issues, all confidential of course.

Your initial consultation will be approxomately 1.5 hours, with consecutive appointments of 1 hour.

This is a non-invasive therapy, where all you have to do is lie down on a massage bed and relax for about an hour!

You will be surrounded in sound, using singing bowls, to create a healing, meditative sound bath.

Using Acutonics, Sharon can apply osteophonic tuning forks on acupressure points to target particular areas (these forks help release Nitric Oxide, a free radical which affects pain transmission and protects major organs in the body).

Sound-Massage

The bowls and forks are attuned to the freqency of each Chakra, and Sharon is able to personalise each treatment and target your particular health issues. Sharon also uses the golden 432 HZ frequency which is said to vibrate with that of the universe and carries with it the properties of light, time, space, consciousness, our Chakras and our DNA code.

The treatments often produce a release of energy blockages in the chakra system, as well as mental and muscle tension, improving general health and wellbeing.

The 5 elements of space, air, fire, water and earth are brought together to create a unique experience to each person.

 


How Many Sessions Do I Need?

This will be driven by you, and what your body tells you. But generally you can expect to have up to 4 sessions to start, with repeat sessions as you see fit. Ongoing regular monthy or bi-monthly sessions will help your body keep in optimal wellness, as well as treat chronic issues.

How Much Are The Sessions?

The sessions are $80 each or 4 for $280.
