Sound Healing is an ancient practice of the use of vibrational frequencies to send healing messages to the body’s cells. Cymatics, derived from the Greek word meaning “kyma” or “a great wave”, is also a theory that explains how sound therapy works.
Cymatics refers to the waves, or sound frequencies, that emanates from a source, travel distances, and penetrate an object causing said object to be altered on multiple levels (physical, cellular, molecular, emotional, mental, etc.). Illness, such as chemical addiction, causes the body’s sound frequency to become unstable. The vibrations of sounds can penetrate the human body, sending a message to every cell to re-balance the frequency and re-establish equilibrium.
Common instruments used during a sound therapy session include sound bowls, crystal bowls, gongs, tuning forks, chimes, and voice. At Holistix, we combine the use of sound healing with our other alternative treatments, including yoga and massage.
