Sound healing is an ancient practice that uses sound and vibrations to promote physical and emotional healing. This holistic therapy has been used for thousands of years by various cultures throughout the world. Sound massage is a type of sound healing that involves placing Tibetan singing bowls on or around the body and playing them to produce soothing vibrations. In this article, we’ll explore the healing properties of sound massage and how it can benefit your health and wellbeing.
The Origin of Tibetan Singing Bowls
Tibetan singing bowls originated in the Buddhist tradition and have been used for almost 3,000 years by the monks and priests of the temples. Patients would come to the temple to be healed by the hundreds of bowls that were kept there, along with temple gongs and the voices of teams of monks. Tibetan singing bowls were traditionally made of seven different metals, each representing a different planet or celestial body.
How Sound Massage Works
When placed on the body and played, the vibrations produced by the bowls penetrate every fiber of a being and can gently shake out toxins and blockages. The soundwaves massage the body internally, relaxing cells and promoting rejuvenation. The vibrations call attention to imbalances in the body, allowing it to naturally heal itself in those areas. The muscles become super relaxed and the mind is cleared by the reduction of mental activity. The body releases endorphins, reducing stress and tension further. The client leaves feeling pure, positive, and enthusiastic, yet relaxed and happy.
The Benefits of Sound Massage
Sound massage has many positive effects for those with imbalances, but it’s also beneficial to those who are healthy. The properties of sound healing help to reduce stress and tension, promote relaxation, and balance the mind and body. Some of the benefits of sound massage include:
