What is Sound Healing?
Sound Healing is a form of energy or vibrational medicine.
It is the use of sound to clear and balance energy, open energy pathways in the body, and to access altered states of consciousness, all of which can assist one in healing and transforming.
Sound Healing has been used by indigenous healers since ancient times, with the healers using drumming, chanting and ritual songs.
There has been a resurgence of interest in the use of sound to heal in the past 30 years.
Some of the techniques being used today in Sound Healing include:
Toning, which is the use of the voice in healing
Tibetan and crystal singing bowls and bells, gongs
Therapeutic tuning forks
Laurie was introduced to vocal Sound Healing in 1986 and has been evolving the use of it with herself and in her work since that time. She makes vocal tones, often while doing energy work with her hands. The sounds can be single tones, a series of linked tones, or a chant like healing song. This brilliant energy medicine supports other healing modalities being used in the treatment.
People commonly report feeling more relaxed, reduction or removal of pain, feeling their energy flowing more easily in their body, and more "connected" within themselves. Some people experience heightened awareness of other states of consciousness, lending to feelings of expansiveness and peace.
Whatever one's experience may be, sound can be a vital tool to assist in one's healing and awakening to an expanded reality.
