People have been using sound to promote healing for thousands of years. For example, ancient Greek physicians used musical instruments as therapy believing that the instruments' vibrations could aid in digestion, treat mental disturbance, and induce sleep. Meanwhile, ancient Egyptians thought musical incantations healed the sick. We have just taken this ancient form of music medicine and made it accessible.

Working with sound can be profound, from healing to finding more peace and calm.
+ Binaural beats, using tones that are close in frequency, but not the same, help to synchronize your brainwaves, thus encouraging a Theta state of brainwaves, this is the state you'll find yourself in during a deep meditation or on the cusp of sleep.
+ Quantum Physics! We are using vibrations to move the whole of the physical form and baseline energy of the body, this promotes healing, rest, and a 'deep massage-like release. Our body holds everything, we don't often give ourselves time to process even day-to-day things, so the body holds on, it remembers. Sound healing can be exceptionally helpful for those who are suffering from depression, trauma, and grief.
+ A few of the chosen instruments may encourage ASMR(A tingling all over the skin and head), scientist believe this is because the brain is telling the person they are cared for and safe.
+ Raising your vibration, ever walk into a room and you can FEEL the energy as heavy, perhaps the people, the words being said, the light levels or noise... then think, everyone, wandered into a 'light' place, perhaps the depths of nature, the cool sea, or maybe an outside concert? How it has impacted you. 'raising your vibration' is what we are doing in a Soundbath or healing. Untying knots, letting go of old feelings, beliefs, and energy. Resetting the whole system.
+ Spiritual connection. For those of us who come from a yoga background or believe beyond the physical realm Sound can be immense transformative, it can support ancestral healing, and allow deeper thoughts and ideas to emerge, it also tunes up the Chakra system, something I'm deeply passionate about. If you focus on the sound and let go of the physical world, profound healing and energy work can take place.
+ Neuroscience: Brainwaves. Which brainwaves are you likely to encourage during a session(if you focus on the sound and encourage the mind to get quiet, and yes, just like meditation, this might take practice!)
