For centuries, from ancient Greeks to Native American medicine men, shamans etc, music has been used in healing practices. The first known culture to heal with sound is the Aboriginal people of Australia. Their wind instrument called “didgeridoo” has been used as a healing tool for at least 40,000 years. The Aborigines uses it to heal broken bones, muscle tears and illness of every kind.
Natural observation shows us that our bodies are acutely sensitive to noise, and sounds certainly have an influence on our moods and behavior. Anyone who listens to music knows that sounds play an important part in our emotional lives. Music can make us feel happy, relaxed, energized or even facilitate healing, but how does it all work?
How it works:
Sound therapists believe that our bodies contain 'energy frequencies' and that sonic frequencies can be used to reattune these energies when they go off key. In other words reharmonizing the body when it's out of harmony. All you have to do is lie down and bask in the tuneful beauty of 'pure' sound.
