What is Sound Healing?

While some sounds are soothing-like ocean waves or wind chimes, others are downright jarring! like a traffic jam or your neighbor’s new violin hobby. But can sounds heal you? Here is all you need to know about the latest trend of ‘Sound Healing.’

It may be considered new-age wellness but sound healing is hardly a new form of therapy. The ancient Greeks used music to cure mental disorders and throughout history, sound has been used to help people work faster, influence, and boost morale. Many also believe that sound can heal the body. That’s because humans have an instinct for sound therapy. Just think about how a favorite song can lift your mood.

What is Sound Healing

Sound healing is an ancient healing modality or technique, being used for thousands of years to release energetic and physical blockages, balance energy levels, calm the mind, and restore the body. In a sound bath, different healing instruments like Tibetan bowls, elemental chimes, rain sticks, gongs, etc are played, where participants not just listen to the harmonious sounds but receive the healing vibrations generated by these instruments at the physical level. After a sound bath, one feels energetically re-charged and deeply rested.

Q. When and how did your interest in sound grow, over the years?

Sound is very sacred to me. The most powerful & significant tool to regulate my emotions. When I think of my childhood, I remember being an angry, wild, sad & fearful kid who would struggle to find words and courage (now I would say ART) to express herself, so I would keep quiet. Later, I would sing to myself or simply hum & feel better. Only now I can understand that unknowingly, singing and humming worked as a tool for me to release anger, sadness, and any other extreme emotion.

Q. What is the significance, and effect of sound in your life?

I noticed the effect of sound/music, on the physical layer of my body, for the first time when I listened to Sketch’s song RAAT, many years ago. Although this song has a romantic connotation, for some reason, I perceived and connected to it more at the spiritual level. It opened a doorway to a whole new thought process. I got curious about my existence, the creation of this universe, the Devine. With time I could identify that it was Sufi music and chants, that raised my vibration instantly.

On the other side, some life events led my path to practice meditation. In the beginning, I mostly meditated with the music on and there were some specific chants and sounds that gave me goosebumps (sounds that resonated with me the most). I could sense a current passing throughout my body, making me feel so light as if a burden had been lifted off my shoulders and I could feel that light energy radiating through me into the space.
