Have you heard the adage “music soothes the savage beast”? It’s not just a fable. Science confirms sound and vibrational therapies change brainwave frequencies and the nervous system, lowers stress levels and boosts immune function, while also interrupting negative patterns.
One study, noting mood and anxiety caused an increase in disease, looked at singing bowl meditation and its effects on the body. The researchers used Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, gongs, Ting-shas (tiny cymbals), dorges (bells), didgeridoos, and other small bells.
The study found that crystal singing bowls changed the electrical responses in the body (think blood pressure, and pain response.) and Tibetan singing bowls also decreased blood pressure
and heart rate. A study by the British Academy of Sound Therapy found that 95% of clients who had stress-related issues felt an increase in calmness after a session.
Using tuning forks is another form of vibrational therapy, and there is research suggesting it might
relieve muscle and bone pain. Some of the conditions sound therapy has been used to alleviate include Depression; Post-traumatic stress disorder; Autism; Learning disabilities; Stress and Anxiety disorders.
