What is sound therapy?

Sound therapy is a holistic therapy that uses sounds and vibrations to help people heal. It can be used to treat a number of physical, psychological and spiritual ailments.

This practice dates back to ancient times, where it was considered one of the oldest systems of curative care. Today, sound therapy is widely recognized as an alternative form of natural treatment.

In sound therapy, the term “sound” refers to any type of sound waves produced with the aim of generating vibrational frequencies beneficial to human life.


Benefits of sound baths

Sound baths are considered (rightly) as a powerful tool in the human being's quest for relaxation, well-being and harmonization.

The benefits of sound baths can be felt on all levels: physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional.

Their action is based on the principle that our cells react to the vibrations produced by different vibrations. Well chosen, these vibrations create deep relaxation of the brain and nervous system by inducing an altered state of consciousness called “trance” where our mind is more open to inner healing.


The singing bowl to connect with yourself

The singing bowl is one of the most used tools when it comes to creating a calming atmosphere.

According to the testimonies of those who have used it, the vibrations produced by this type of instrument provide a pleasant sensation and allow those who participate in it to find inner peace and mental calm.

The singing bowl can be used alone or with other instruments to form a harmonious whole. The sounds produced are very soft and can easily resonate with our entire body, freeing us from the stress accumulated on a daily basis.

Chanting mantras to vibrate

Mantras are repetitive phrases or syllables used to create positive vibrations that allow you to increase your spiritual awareness. Interesting fact: sound baths can easily be combined with chanting mantras.

Indeed, the vibrating sounds of mantras are believed to bring a sense of peace and harmony, as well as the ability to vibrate at a higher spiritual level.

It can be very therapeutic for the soul and body as it allows people to find a deep connection with themselves, others and the divine.


The gong to create a soothing atmosphere

You will have understood: the sound bath is an ancestral practice which consists of relaxing and reconnecting with yourself by listening to soothing sounds. A gong can be used to create an atmosphere of calm and harmony, and will therefore be used wonderfully in our context.

Some gongs produce rich, deep sounds that can span several octaves. Additionally, the vibration produced is very powerful, as it resonates long after the initial blow has been struck.

This continuous vibration then helps the body enter a state of deep relaxation. The sound of the gong allows those present to release physical and mental tensions accumulated over the past days or weeks, which promotes a feeling of inner well-being.


The chime to create positive waves

Using the right chime, it is easy to produce positive vibes tinged with soft and pleasant sounds.

The use of chimes as a sound therapy instrument was also used by ancient civilizations as a means of harmonizing their interior and exterior spaces.

The effects of the sound bath aided by chimes can be very powerful and profound. The vibrations generated create a calm and relaxing atmosphere which helps relieve stress, physical and mental fatigue, as well as promote better concentration.

In addition, it allows us to reconnect with different parts of ourselves in order to increase our awareness of our chakras. Indeed, the different parts of the chime, having different harmonics, will also act on different energy centers.


Conclusion: combine sound baths, meditation and prayer

Meditation is one of the best tools for calming the mind and relieving physical and mental tension. In the end, sound baths are only one form (effective, certainly) among many others.

Next to this, prayer can be seen as a direct connection with God or whatever divine source you choose to use.

By combining these spiritual practices, you will undoubtedly be able to create an environment favorable to your personal development and spiritual growth.
