Nurture your mind, body and soul with sound healing

Posted by Cathryn Blair on 29th Feb 2024

Music is medicine for the body, mind and soul. In our fast-paced world, finding moments of tranquillity and balance is essential for maintaining our health and wellbeing. One practice that has gained increasing recognition for its therapeutic benefits is sound healing.

Utilizing various sonic vibrations, sound healing offers a unique approach to holistic wellness, impacting the body, mind, and spirit. Sound healing offers a powerful means of enhancing health and wellbeing by harnessing the transformative power of sound vibrations.

The Healing Power of Sound: Enhancing Health and Wellbeing

Whether through singing bowls, Solfeggio frequencies, classical music, or traditional instruments like bells and drums, incorporating sound therapy into our daily routines can help us find inner peace, balance, and vitality in an increasingly noisy world.


Among the diverse tools of sound healing, singing bowls stand out for their serene resonance. These ancient instruments produce rich, harmonious tones when struck or rubbed with a mallet, creating a soothing atmosphere conducive to relaxation and meditation. The vibrations emitted by singing bowls are believed to synchronize brain waves, promoting a sense of calm and mental clarity.

Proven benefits of singing bowls:

  • Stress Reduction and Relaxation - the sound vibrations entrain theta and delta brain waves responsible for releasing stress and receiving calm.
  • Enhance Meditation - the sound of the singing bowl being played can serve as a focal point for meditation, helping individuals more easily enter a meditative state.
  • Chakra Balancing - each chakra in the body's energy system is associated with specific tones (Hz). And by playing specific tones individually or in sequence can help restore balance and harmony to the chakras.
  • Pain Management - the vibrations, resonant sounds and tones may release endorphins - the body's natural pain killers.
  • Mood Booster - the uplifting and resonant sounds and tones can positively impact mood and emotional wellbeing.
  • Stimulate Circulation - the vibrations from the bowls travel through the body and stimulate blood flow and improve circulation in the body.
  • Improved Sleep - the deep sonorous vibrations can help put you into a deep sleep.
  • Enhanced Creativity - the vibrational frequencies can enhance creativity and problem-solving abilities.
  • Release Emotional Blockages - the vibrations from playing the bowls are thought to facilitate the release of stagnant energy, helping with the release of emotional blockages and traumas that may be stored in the body and promote emotional healing.

There is always plenty of interest when we bring our singing bowls to events, and I've lost count on the number of singing bowl demonstrations we have performed for (and with) our visitors and customers. 

You can use singing bowls for yoga, meditation, clearing the energy in your home, balancing your chakras, healing and to cleanse crystals. As a guide bigger bowls will produce deeper sounds, which has a grounding effect and resonates more physically, while smaller bowls create a higher pitched sound, stimulating the higher chakra and resonating more spiritually.


Another aspect of sound healing involves the use of Solfeggio frequencies, a set of ancient musical tones with purported healing properties. Each frequency corresponds to specific aspects of the body's energy system, aiming to restore balance and harmony.

Advocates suggest that listening to Solfeggio frequencies can alleviate stress, improve sleep, enhance overall wellbeing, and enhance creativity and problem-solving abilities. You can find samples of solfeggio music on Spotify and YouTube channels.


The renowned Mozart Effect suggests that listening to classical music, particularly compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, can enhance cognitive function and emotional well-being.

Studies have shown that listening to Mozart's music can reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, and even boost creativity. The intricate melodies and rhythmic patterns of classical music stimulate the brain in unique ways, fostering a sense of tranquillity and mental clarity.

Note: I have been quite the fan of The Mozart Effect for many years. A friend recommended it as she played it to her epileptic and autistic child to help with calming and relaxation. I have most of Don Campbell's The Mozart Effect albums - yes, old school CD and digital too. I play them for study, for meditation, relaxation and calm, and when I need to learn or get creative.


In addition to melodic instruments, bells and drums are integral components of sound healing practices.

The resonant tones of bells and the rhythmic beats of drums have been used for centuries in various cultures to induce meditative states and promote healing. The repetitive patterns and vibrations produced by these instruments can facilitate deep relaxation, release tension, and promote emotional release.

For many, sound healing offers a powerful means of enhancing health and wellbeing by harnessing the transformative power of sound vibrations. Why not try some sound healing today.
