Sound therapy refers to a range of therapies in which sound is used to treat physical and mental conditions. One of these therapies is music therapy, which can involve a person listening to music for conditions such as stress and muscle tension.
Music is one component of this therapy. Others use sound wave vibrations to treat physical and mental conditions. In general, this therapy is based on the theory that all of life vibrates, including people’s bodies. When a person’s healthy resonant frequency is out of balance, physical and emotional health is affected.
Treatment by sound waves is believed to restore that healthy balance to the body. Healing is done by transmitting beneficial sound to the affected area. The healing sound may be produced by a voice or an instrument such as electronic equipment, chanting bowls, or tuning forks. Sound Therapy is a series of frequencies and wave forms. We can describe all matter as organized by wave forms and frequencies. This includes our bodies.
The body has specific frequencies for each gland, organ and system and subtle body. Each resonates at a certain frequency. Each must resonate at that certain frequency for health, balance and harmony with all other parts and within itself.
We might liken each frequency of that particular body part to a note a member of an orchestra would play. When all the notes coming forth from the orchestra flow together and work synergistically we have beautiful music. If they do not, what do we hear? A sour note. When the body part does not resonate appropriately, our body hits sour notes which manifests as an ache, pain or illness.
The gland, organ or system may begin to function at a low level causing functions to slow down or cease. Or perhaps the gland, Organ or system begins to hyper function, eventually leading to burnout and then the function slowing down or ceasing.
The orchestra may begin to sound like a series of discordant notes, with little harmony and certainly no enjoyment to the listener.
Sound therapy is like a person who retunes the instrument. As your parts are retuned and come back into harmony and balance, your internal orchestra begins to once again make beautiful music.
Your body is a marvelous creation. Given the right instructions It can correct itself and begin to resonate at the frequencies that create good health.

Sound therapy is simple, effective and effortless. By listening to the specially recorded music tapes while you go about your daily routine, you can create the changes needed to enhance your quality of life.
Specially recorded analogue tapes of highly filtered classical music are used to rehabilitate the ear and stimulate the brain. Sound therapy stimulates the ear by presenting it with constantly alternating sounds of high and low tone. This in turn exercises the middle ear muscles and stimulates the receptor cells in the inner ear.
As the ear becomes open and receptive to high frequency sounds these are then passed on to the brain. The brain is recharged by means of sound, releasing latent vitality, obliterating tiredness, lessening the need for sleep, and inducing a permanent state of peace and relaxation.
