Using the healing power of sound and music, a sound meditation aids in relaxing and calming the nervous system, increasing body awareness, decreasing anxiety, lowering stress levels, and improving mood. Using a variety of instruments, a sound meditation ignites parts of the brain that are not normally accessed in traditional psychotherapy.
Some of the benefits of sound meditation and sound therapy include improvement in area of:
- Sleep disorders
- Stress management
- Pain management
What happens in a sound meditation?
When doing a sound meditation we recommend that the client lies down on the floor on a yoga mat with their head close to the instruments, as this gives the maximum benefits. Once the client is guided to a relaxed state, the sound therapist plays Tibetan and crystal bowls and a variety of healing instruments to further deepen the meditative state. Client's report feeling more relaxed after the sound therapy/meditation session.
