There’s a reason Miles Davis songs help you unwind, your favorite Lady Gaga hit gets you fired up, and the gentle crash of ocean waves puts you in a soothing trance. Sound has a direct impact on your mood and consequently your health. Listening to music is one way to release tension, other sound therapies also create desired outcomes. Peggy Sealfon-Stonewater Studio in Naples, FL, helps clients throughout the U.S. enter optimal restorative states through measured, calming vibrations. In student sessions and workshops, this experienced life coach reveals the benefits of sound for healing physical ailments and relieving stress.
As Sealfon-Stonewater describes in a blog post, she uses “singing bowls” in her relaxation workshops. As she strikes the crystal bowls in a precise fashion, students’ mental resistance weakens. As their minds clear and eyes soften, their heartbeats typically slow. She specifically utilizes frequencies that activate energy around the heart and third eye — the center of intuition — to diminish extraneous thoughts and judgments. She also uses a device called a matrix transmitter that replicates sounds in pulsations throughout the body. These cadences reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing process.
The practice of healing through sound was widespread among ancient cultures. For more than 40,000 years, Australian Aborigines used the yidaki, or didgeridoo, to promote healing from damaged muscles, broken bones, and illnesses. The instrument’s soothing tones strongly correlate with those used in sound healing technology today.
Sound energy also can reduce blood pressure, diminish symptoms of depression, and improve sleep quality. It might decrease stress levels, boost immune cell capabilities, and even improve brain function.
