Therapeutic sounds serve as complementary therapies taking various forms, including Yoga Nidra and the sounds of ancient musical instruments.
These powerful therapies draw from age-old practices, resurfacing to help people in achieving optimal health amid the demands of the modern world.
THE SCIENCE OF YOGA NIDRA
Yoga Nidra facilitates a state of profound relaxation, often characterised by an increase in delta and theta waves and a decrease in beta waves. This shift in brain wave patterns can lead to a profound sense of rest, self-discovery, and emotional healing, making Yoga Nidra a powerful tool for stress reduction and personal creativity.
THE SCIENCE OF ANCIENT SOUND
Sound travels through a medium, like air or water, and intriguingly, our bodies consist of approximately 60% water. We can witness the effect of sound visually altering water when it's played nearby. Sound possesses the ability to shift frequencies, transforming lower energies like guilt and fear into higher vibrations associated with love and joy. This phenomenon is universally experienced when a cherished song from our playlist resonates with us and positively influences our inner state.
Sound frequencies, some audible and others more subtle, synchronise brain waves, leading to profound states of relaxation. Sound Therapy has been utilised by ancient civilisations to reset the body at a cellular level. This practice creates a harmonious environment, supporting your natural immune system and harnessing nature's inherent healing abilities.
No prior experience is necessary to enjoy these practices, only the willingness to lie down on a Yoga mat quietly, comfortably, and relaxed to allow the therapeutic vibrations to take effect.
Therapeutic Musical Sounds
My favorite musical instrument is the handpan. Additionally, I have an array of crystal singing bowls, Tibetan metal sound bowls, a gong, a crystal triangle, a wave drum, a rain stick, a shamanic drum, tuning forks, a xylophone, koshi wind chimes, and a harmonium.
