What is Sound Healing and what are it’s benefits? Why should you experience it? Let us share a little about Sound Healing.
Sound healing is a type of alternative healing modality that uses sound to promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It is believed that sound can help to balance the body’s energy fields, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.
There are many different types of sound healing, but most involve the use of instruments such as tuning forks, gongs, drums, and singing bowls. The practitioner will often play these instruments in a specific way to create a healing soundscape. The client may lie down or sit comfortably and listen to the sounds, or they may be invited to participate in the sound healing by singing, chanting, or drumming.
Sound healing is generally considered to be safe and has few side effects. However, it is important to talk to your doctor before trying sound healing if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any other medications.
