History of Sound Therapy

Sound has been a critical sense for preservation and well being from the time man lived on the earth. Man's ability to sense sound has been key in everything from communicating with others to alerting imminent danger. The sensation of sound is one of our most primal senses and therefore very deeply embedded in the brain. The brain's sense of hearing is the first sense to be developed in the womb and the last sense to lose in death. The therapeutic effects of sound and music are natural and an innate part of our being. From a mother's first words to her unborn baby to the therapeutic effects of laughing and crying, sound affects our physical and psychological state automatically. Sound Therapy was originally developed by the French ear, nose and throat specialist, Dr Alfred A. Tomatis, who made some very important discoveries about the role that the ear plays in the health of our brain and nervous system. Tomatis specialised in education and took his method into the schools, where his programme helped hundreds of children with dyslexia to learn to read. He also helped singers and people with industrial deafness. In later years his clinics focussed more on assisting clients to learn foreign languages. In 1984 Patricia Joudry discovered Sound Therapy and wrote the original book on her discoveries-Sound Therapy for the Walkman. Due to sound sensitivity, Patricia's life was an obstacle course of noise. The resulting stress meant chronic exhaustion and years of insomnia. Unexpected events led to the discovery that changed her life. Just a few weeks of Sound Therapy meant peaceful sleep and a new breakthrough in energy she had never dreamed possible. Patricia's self help Sound Therapy has helped thousands and found its way by word of mouth to over 45 countries. Through the self help system, Sound Therapy became accessible all over the world. The long term treatment made possible by this method extended its effectiveness into the arenas of hearing loss, tinnitus and the long term treatment of many neurological and stress related disorders. Since 1989 Sound Therapy International has been furthering the research and development of Sound Therapy through public education, research, practitioner training and technological advances. The use of tuning forks in health care has also grown extensively over recent years. Although some theories date them back as far as Ancient Egypt, the modern day tuning fork was developed more than 400 years ago as a means to tune instruments. In Western Medicine they are used for neurological testing and as a quick way to scan the body for a fracture. Many cultures recognise the importance of music and sound as healing power. In the ancient civilisations of India, the Orient, Europe and Africa, the practice of using sound to heal and achieve balance from within has existed for many years. The Tibetans still use bells, chimes, bowls and chanting as the foundation of their spiritual practice. In Bali, Indonesia, the gong and drum are used in ceremonies to uplift and send messages. The Australian Aboriginals and Native American shamans use vocal toning and repetitive sound vibration with instruments in sacred ceremonies to adjust any imbalance of spirit. Science tells us that everything in the universe is in a state of vibration and the frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. The chakras, bones and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ, or part of the body, is vibrating out of harmony, it is called “dis-ease” or disease. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being. Sound Therapy aims to bring the body and mind back into harmony, re-tuning to the vibrations and frequencies of the different instruments used. 

What is Sound Healing? 

Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body and mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health. It is based on the principle that everything in the Universe is made of vibration. Sound healing is possible because the human body is not solid and is held together by vibration. Like a well tuned instrument, the body is a rhythmic, harmonious form unless its vibratory field is disrupted. Sound healing can be transmitted to a person in a number of ways:- 

• Through listening to an instrument 

• Through listening to music 

• Through using their own voice 

• Through listening to other peoples voice 

Problems that occur within our Energy System can lead to dis-ease if not rectified. This is where the application of sound can help to rectify the imbalances within your own and your client’s energy system. The sound that resonates from the instruments that you use will pass in and through the Chakras and Aura into your physical body, helping to align and balance the bodies own inner sound. This can help to release emotions, clearing blockages in the Aura and Chakras. This will aid the body back into perfect balance allowing the physical body to heal itself. This form of Sound Therapy leaves you feeling relaxed and full of energy. 

What is sound? 

Sound as we know it is a series of compression waves that move through air or other materials. The vibration of an object, like a loudspeaker, creates these sound waves. The waves are detected when they cause a detector to vibrate. Your eardrum vibrates from sound waves to allow you to sense them. 

Tibetan Chimes 

Tibetan chimes are traditionally used by Tibetan Buddhists to mark the beginning and end of meditation. They are also used by a Buddhist master to bring a student back into focus when his mind wanders during meditation. The sound is penetrating and lacks harmony, unlike the harmonic tones of the Tibetan singing bowls. By gently tapping them together you can make a soft sound, or by holding the leather cord at its centre and swinging the chimes together so that they strike each other strongly, you can make a louder sound. 

What is a Tibetan Singing Bowl? 

Tibetan bowls were originally designed for eating bowls; but it was discovered that they also had healing qualities, used for centuries by the Tibetans and beyond. Each bowl has its own innate sound. No bowl is the same. Each bowl has a different musical note which corresponds to the body. By using the bowls it allows the body to synchronise back to its natural state. Everything vibrates, so the Tibetan bowls vibration will affect your body in a positive way. 

The benefits of using these bowls: 

When the bowls are struck they produce tones. When there is a difference in tone over a certain area of your body, that part of your body is not running naturally. It is corrected by keeping the bowl over that point until the tone returns to its natural state. It allows all the energy centres in the body (chakras) to become balanced. 

What is a Tuning Fork? 

Tuning Forks used for healing are a key aspect of sound and vibrational healing therapy. This alternative form of therapy involves using specific pitches, sounds and vibrations to relieve stress, pain and bring about homeostasis within the body. Tuning forks are used to treat everyone – children, adults and even animals. Tuning forks are used for healing because of their ability to emit vibrations and frequency. When a tuning fork is struck, it not only vibrates the fork itself, but it also vibrates the surrounding air space with the same frequency of vibration. This sends the vibration as an impulse through the air. This vibration can be harnessed to help increase the healing energy inside us. 

The benefits of using tuning forks? 

Tuning Forks benefit the human body at all levels as sound and frequency affects every atom & every cell to: 

• Improve overall physical health. 

• Relieve pain and stress. 

• Balance Nervous system. 

• Reduce Inflammation. 

• Uncover & balance emotions. 

• Induce relaxation. 

• Facilitate inner harmony and wholeness.
