Why Sound

  • Sound is our Universal Language, predating the invention of language itself. It is also the oldest forms of
    healing, dating back thousands of years since the dawn of human civilisation.
  • Modern science has confirmed what ancient wisdom traditions have known for millenniums, that sound has the
    power to heal, and to transform.
  • Sound therapy comes in the form of vibrational frequencies, pure tones or as music, and can positively impact a
    large array of physiological and psychological states: lowering blood pressure, slowing heartbeat and breath
    rate, reducing stress hormones, boosting immune response, slowing brainwaves to increase creativity and
    relaxation, increasing endorphin production, improving memory and learning, relieving both acute and chronic
    pain.
  • The natural harmonics of sound and vibrations received by our body tissues travel through our nervous system
    and penetrate our cellular membranes. It can trigger shifts, clear blockages, disrupt cellular dis-eases, leading to
    an internal process that rebalances and harmonises our physical, mental, emotional states, restoring a sense of
    calm while reducing stress, anxiety, tenseness, sleeplessness, etc.
  • Coupled with mindfulness practice, sound works synergistically and complementarily to enhance our holistic
    well-being and consciousness, creating a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts.
