Chakra in Sanskrit means “wheel” and refers to energy points in our body. When our main seven chakras are open and balanced, energy can flow freely. When any of these energy centers are blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical and emotional ailments. During the healing session I use sound therapy and mainly Himalayan Singing Bowls to balance the human chakra system. Sound therapy is a healing practice used in many ancient cultures using vibrations to heal and reduce stress or other emotional issues, relieve blockage of the chakras, or the energy points in the body. The sound bath is not only about to slow down and relax. If you’re interested using the healing sound bath as a therapy for physical health problems or mental health issues beyond stress, it’s important to use them as a secondary therapy, rather than as your only therapy. I can combine any of my healing therapies during your sound bath The sound bath works perfectly when we’re stressed, our busy brain sounds the “fight or flight” alarms, triggering a surge of hormones, an increase in heart rate, blood pressure and blood sugar. It alters the immune, digestive and reproductive system. The sound bath is balancing our chakra system and facilitates natural healing in our energy field.
The history related to the singing bowls originated thousands of years ago in the Himalayas and were mostly used in monasteries and temples for religious, spiritual ceremonies, including shamanic journeying and meditation and sound healing. Like all musical instruments, singing bowls rely on friction and vibration to create the sound we hear. Each singing bowl is made from seven metals and produces a different pitch and vibration. Bowls are played in a particular order to produce specific healing tones throughout the session. Other tools I often used in sound therapy are tuning forks and gongs. My singing bowls are primarily made in Nepal.In the Himalaya there is a very ancient tradition of metal manufacture, and bowls have been handcrafted and not machine made. A machine would not be able to add the touches that a craftsman does. This small difference can make a huge difference in the healing vibration. The vibrations and frequencies are highly therapeutic. Singing bowls resonate with a pure, healing sound, while hammered bowls or gongs create a special vibration when struck or strummed. The vibrations are similar to those of the brain’s alpha waves, and they oscillate with an energetically high frequency, like that of the “Om” mantra. The sound of the singing and hammered bowls has an effect on brain-wave frequencies and can help bring the brain into a Theta state within a few minutes. Theta waves occur during REM sleep, hypnosis and deep meditation. At the same time, the vibrations that emit from the bowls provide a cellular massage and healing. After the healing session, some people feel relaxed. Others might feel energized.
