How Sound Healing Can Transform Your Spirituality (Part 1)

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 a natural instinct for sound therapy

Just think about how a favorite song can lift your mood.

Of course, these days, sound healing can take on many different forms. Because of how intuitive they are, music and voice are still very popular. However, many practitioners prefer to use instruments like tuning forks and gongs. That’s because these can work faster to achieve a healing effect

Here is your basic guide to sound healing:


Simply, this involves using sound vibrations to relax your mind and body.

Sound can shift frequencies from low energy of guilt and fear to higher vibrations of love and joy. Sound healing is the use of sacred instruments or voice to release energetic blockages inducing a state of ease and harmony in the body. While there are many types of sound therapy, all of them produce vibrations that alter your brain waves.

The adult body is 75% water, and water is a great conductor for sound vibration, when vibrations travel through the body, they promote circulation, energy flow, and rejuvenationThe frequency of the sound synchronizes with the brainwaves and activates destress responses in the body.


Sound healing can help you clear energetic blockages and thus facilitate healing on a physical and mental level. Some of the benefits of sound therapy include:
  • lower stress levels
  • fewer mood swings
  • lower blood pressure
  • lower cholesterol
  • improved sleep
Over the years, sound healing has also been used to help or treat a number of conditions including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, and dementia.


Tuning forks are typically used to tune other instruments. 

However, they have healing powers of their own

Calibrated tuning forks can be held to specific parts of the body to send vibrations that release tension and open blocked energy channels

This form of sound healing is good for emotional balance and pain relief.


Gongs have been used as a form of sound healing since around 4,000 B.C. Now, they’re used in gong baths. This is a style of meditation where the practitioner creates different tones and patterns with the gongs to produce vibrations that work on the mind-body connection. Plus, it works fast.
The gong has stronger vibrations and much richer sounds because of its size and structure, the sound can put you in a deeply relaxed and meditative state in as quickly as 60 to 90 seconds.
Gong baths are great for clearing fears or emotional blocks and improving mental clarity, leaving you transformed on a physical as well as mental level.


While there are many types of sound healing, each one offers a host of benefits that can improve your wellbeing, energy levels, and performance at work. Think about what you want to get out of your sound healing experiences. This will help you pick some to try and, once you’ve experimented with a few, you’ll be able to decide exactly what form of sound therapy works best for you
