What is Sound Healing?

"Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health."  - Simon Heather 

Sound has been used to help focus the mind & heal for thousands of years. In all forms of tribe, religious & non religious as humans our relationship remains close to rhythm & music. We employ sound & music to  celebrate, mourn, protest, speak when we have no words, to emote and connect us to the great mysteries of spirituality. From Artists, Cleaners, Surgeons, to forms of worship from Shamans, Animists, Buddhists, Jainists, Hindus, Christians, to secretaries, mums, factory workers, musicians, clubbers, babies and football-goers. When a tune is played we dance to it.  Music, sound and rhythm draws us together.

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything; It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good, just, and beautiful.”  - Plato

At A SOUND SPACE we work from the principal that all mater has a vibration & that vibration can be adjusted tweaked & tuned using a variety of specific healing sound. 

The College Of Sound Healing provides a comprehensive explanation of "What is Sound Healing", here on the College website ?

Each organism has its own vibratory rate. Every object in the universe has its own unique resonant frequency. Tap a wineglass and it will emit a ringing sound determined by its size, shape and the thickness.

When an opera singer vibrates a glass with her voice the singer has matched her voice to the resonant frequency of the glass and set it into vibration. As the singer increases the volume of her sound the resonance becomes too great for the forces that hold the glass together and it shatters.

Luckily, our bodies are more flexible than a glass! The cells of our body enjoy the vibration of sound.

If one 'C' tuning fork is struck and placed next to another 'C' tuning fork, the second tuning fork will begin to resonate together with the first tuning fork. The sound wave from the first tuning fork has imparted some of its energy to the second one.

If the stem of the tuning fork is placed on a metal, glass or wooden object, this object will begin to vibrate. A simple experiment can be conducted by placing a tuning fork on the top of one's head. You will find that bone is an excellent conductor of sound.

In air sound travels at 340 metres per second (760mph).
In water sound travels at  1,500 metres per second (3,350mph).
In glass sound travels at   5,600 metres per second (12,500mph).

The human body is made up of 70% water; this makes it a very good conductor of sound.

Sound Healing can be transmitted to a person in a number of ways:-

1) Through using their own voice
2) Through using their voice with other voices
3) Through using their own voice while listening to music

4) Through listening to another person's voice or a number of voices
5) Through listening to an instrument or instruments
6) Through listening to music or sound through a loudspeaker or through headphones
