Healing with singing bowls and their power on the body, mind, and spirit!
Vibrational sound healing also known as sound therapy, sound healing, or vibrational medicine.
Healing with sound is an ancient method that is finding its way back into our lives. Singing bowls, ancient in origin, are new to us with their intricate sounds that can be used for healing. Hidden away for centuries, they have only recently entered the Western world.
Technology can unravel part of their mystery and prove that their sounds have a profound effect on the brain, brain waves, heartbeat, blood pressure, and nervous system. Even without the supporting information of technology, singing bowls demonstrate their healing power on body, soul and spirit. People who bathe in their mysterious sounds tell how the bowls have a powerful effect: stress is reduced and a feeling of well-being is increased. Used in the right way, singing bowls bring one in contact with the inner self and the world of the sacred, where all the seeds and potentials of present and future growth are available for those who choose to enter.
Different things vibrate at different rates or frequencies. These things can be perceived as, sound, light or color or solid matter. There is even a “hum” to the Earth, known as the Schumann Resonance. The lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance is at a frequency of approximately 7.8 Hz. This particular frequency just so happens to be associated with the Alpha waves in our brain, which are most associated with our meditative state. “When your alpha is within normal ranges we tend to also experience good moods, see the world truthfully, and have a sense of calmness.
During our waking state, the normal frequency of our 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.
The cells of the person’s body sense the vibration of the bowls, which stimulates them to vibrate at their optimal rate. The energy blocks in the body occur at places of trauma or stress. The bowls’ vibrations pull the tangled blocks down and out the body.
During singing bowl sessions it is not unusual for people to experience whirling sensations in various places on their body. These areas will be found to correspond to the chakra energy centers of the subtle body. Singing bowls are excellent improving the processing of energy by the chakras tools for restructuring the energy field of the body. The importance of the chakras in general health is becoming more widely known.

It is like a cellular message the sound re-patterns the cells.
There are various types of bowls used for vibrational medicine – one choice are crystal bowls. They are made of 98.9%crystal. Clear quartz integrates the balance of our own electromagnetic energies. Another choice is Tibetan Singing bowls – they are traditionally constructed of seven metals: gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, tin and lead. The ancient bowls actually come from various Himalayan regions including Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan, so they carry that sacred energy.
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been using sound, including Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls and chanting in work with cancer patients for many years. The medical director of the Deepak Chopra center in California, Dr. David Simon, found that the sound from Tibetan bowls as well as chanting are chemically metabolized into ’endogenous opiates’ that act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.
Sound healing can have profound consequences on illness, disease, and all aspects of our lives. In fact, mainstream medical teaching facilities like Duke University and the University of North Carolina have added programs that link body, mind, and spirit to the treatment of cancer.
