Sound therapy is an holistic complementary health support system based upon the ancient system of chakra balancing. Subtle put powerful results can be achieved through immersion in the sounds of instruments including; Tibetan singing bowls, vocal overtone singing, mantra and prayer, crystal singing bowls, gongs, didgeridoo, drums and light percussion instruments.
Many people and traditions believe in the presence of subtle energy fields in the body; the soul, spirit, Ka, Chi, Qi, etc. In the Hindu and Tibetan traditions this energy is thought to travel along nadis (energy channels) and have areas of focus known as chakras (Sanskrit for 'wheel'). There is good evidence that these chakra centres have a two-way link with parts of the body and that they help govern and control these areas. There are many different thoughts on the groupings of these centres but the most common is that shown in the image below.
Each of these main chakras are thought to resonate within certain frequencies that correlate with the western musical scale C,D,E,F,G,A,B.
Working with the chakra centres can help to balance the body, mind and spirit and allow the natural healing process to begin.
Meditation, chant, and mantras that visualise and focus on the chakras can be very powerful self transformational tools.
