What Is Sound Therapy?

Sound therapy is a holistic medicine that uses music to improve physical and emotional wellness. Different aspects of sound and music can be used, whether you listen, sing, dance, or meditate to it.

During sound therapy, a professional will guide you through the chosen activity, using pitches and tones to help relax the body and mind.

What Does Sound Therapy Treat?

holistic medicineSound therapy is used to treat a range of psychological and physical ailments. When used in a regimen that includes guided meditation or dance, this solution can lower blood pressure, release tension in the muscles, reduce pain, and decrease your risk of heart disease and strokes.

When practiced in less physical mediums like singing or playing, sound therapy can alleviate depression and anxiety and boost energy levels.

What Happens During a Session?

Depending on the goal of your treatment, your session may include singing bowls, tuning forks, stringed instruments, drums, and flutes. Some of these instruments will be used to help you center your thoughts around healing while lying down or sitting. Others, like tuning forks, can be applied to areas of the body to release vibrations.

In some sessions, you may be required to remain still to allow your body to accept the music, helping you relieve tension and stress.
