How does Sound Therapy work?
Sound has been used as a powerful and effective tool for helping to improve health and wellbeing for thousands of years. More recently, the advancement of new science has provided valuable support and insight to these ancient techniques. It has shown that people experience deep relaxation, reduced anxiety and stress, improved sleep and hormonal balances in the body. This is due to sound inducing an Altered State of Consciousness, similar to meditation. During a Therapeutic Sound Bath, the brain gets a chance to experience no thought as it is focused on the Sound. The brain shifts into Theta brain waves. This wave is characterised mainly with light sleep, rapid eye movement (REM) dreams and hallucinations. The brain uses this state to exercise itself, rather like working out muscles to make them stronger and to release over all tension. In this state your brain cells reset their sodium/potassium levels. A brief period of Theta (5 to 15 min) a day will restore the ratio to normal, resulting in mental refreshment.
