For centuries, the Tibetan people have practiced sound healing and consciousness transformation with a musical instrument known as a “singing bowl.” Modern science now reveals the healing secrets of these mystical metal bowls. The resonance produced by these hand-crafted bowls can measurably improve human immune function, lower heart rate and blood pressure, soothe pain in cancer patients, and drastically reduce stress levels. Indeed, the bowls dissipate stress to such a tremendous degree that the body becomes a perfect receptacle of deep healing.
We use the vibrational sound of a tuned Tibetan healing bowl set to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace, well being and better health. During the waking state, the normal frequency of brain waves is that of Beta. Sound tools entrain the brain to move into the deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies. These are the frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind and intuition. Modern medicine can now measure and thus confirm the practice of sound as a means to promote healing. Thus, sound is a type of energy medicine that creates the sacred space in which people can heal from stress disorders, pain, depression, the emotional roller coaster and more.
Our ancient singing bowls come from different areas in the Himalayan mountain range, such as Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal. Although their exact age is not known, many of them have been dated back hundreds of years. Made out of a 5-9 metal alloys, prayers and mantras were chanted to them during the process of their creation. So, these bowls have the sacred energy of the prayers imbued in them. Additionally, old bowls were usually made with the intention of healing or transforming consciousness. If you wish, you can listen to our cycle of fifths healing bowl set.
It is best to listen with headphones.
Another important aspect of the Himalayan bowls is that they work on a fundamental level. That is, their vibrations work on all levels (spiritual, physical and emotional) so they treat the whole being rather than just one energy center or part of the body. Many people report that in addition to pain relief and they come off of the emotional roller coaster and feel a deeper sense of happiness and wellbeing.
How do the vibrations from the singing bowls help in the healing process?
It is our belief that all disease is a misalignment or imbalance of our subtle energy field. Energetic work such as vibrational sound that directly accesses the cellular memory is needed to release blocked energy and bring the body back into alignment. In a sense it creates the conditions in which healing can take place and in doing so speeds up the process.
How does it work?
Ancient Tibetan singing bowls are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics. This sound frequency impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being. Bowls will be placed around one’s body and at times on one’s body so sound wave vibrations my be felt as well as heard.
What are the benefits?
