Sound healing, also known as sound therapy or vibrational medicine, is a practice that uses various aspects of music to improve and promote health and well-being. It involves the use of different sound frequencies and vibrations to stimulate therapeutic effects on the body.

There are several methods used in sound healing which can include:

  1. Vocal Toning: Using one’s own voice to create sounds with the intention of aligning and balancing one’s energy.
  2. Singing Bowls or Tuning Forks: These instruments produce specific frequencies that resonate through the body, facilitating relaxation and healing.
  3. Binaural Beats: This technique involves playing two slightly different frequencies in each ear. The brain processes a beat at the difference of the frequencies, which can help induce states of deep relaxation or alert focus.

The central principle behind sound healing is that everything in our universe is made up of vibration, including our bodies. When we’re feeling unwell or out of balance, it could be due to some parts of our body vibrating at an unhealthy frequency. Sound healers aim to restore these imbalanced frequencies into their natural state using sound and vibration.

While there are numerous anecdotal reports praising its effectiveness, sound healing as a method is not yet widely recognized by conventional medicine. But who cares? If it makes you feel good, don't worry about "scientific research."
