Sound Healing at Cork Healing Centre
Ancient cultures have known about the benefits of vibrational and sound healing since the beginning of time – using the seemingly magical power of sound to heal.
The Aboriginal people of Australia are the first known culture to heal with sound. Their yidaki (modern name, didgeridoo) has been used as a healing tool for at least 40,000 years. The Aborigines healed broken bones, muscle tears and illnesses of every kind using this enigmatic musical instrument.
Sound healing had almost disappeared in the West until the 1930s when acoustic researchers discovered ultrasound and its medical properties. With this discovery, research burgeoned and today the ancient art of sound healing is rapidly developing into a new science. There is now a mass of research into the healing benefits of sound.
‘’It’s now possible to use advanced scientific monitors to study brain and autonomic nervous system function. They allow us to watch how specifically tuned sound frequencies can change brainwave states of consciousness and balance the nervous system for healing.’’- Dr. Jeffrey Thompson
How does Sound Healing work?
All cells emit sound as a consequence of their metabolic processes. There is an interaction between the cells own sounds and those imposed by the environment, including those applied by sound healing instruments. The resonance principle relates to the cellular absorption of the healing sounds and/or their harmonics.
In sound healing, resonance principles are employed to re-harmonize cells that have been imprinted with disruptive frequencies. Such troublesome imprints may have been a result of toxic substances, emotional traumas, pathogens, or long-term exposure to noise pollution.
Another possible explanation of how sound is able to trigger the healing response relates to cellular ion channels. Situated within a cell membrane, ion channels are the means by which the cell receives nourishment and communicates with neighbouring cells. In dysfunctional cells it is proposed that some of these vital channels are shut down causing cell senescence, so literally the cell is sleeping. In this hypothesis, sound opens the closed channels, supporting the cell to awaken and resume normal functioning and replication.
Sound Therapy is highly effective as it can bring our brain activity to a minimum in a very short period of time through a natural altered state of consciousness. Vibrational frequencies affect our physical and subtle bodies – high vibrational sound raises your vibration, purifies your energy and aids in healing the body through the clarifying, balancing and energising of the energy centres. Above all, sound connects us to our source, & to our center. When Sound Therapy is paired with powerful intention a state change can occur and has been found to dramatically accelerate the healing process.
Jonathan Goldman, created this simple formula:
Sound + Intention = Healing
Sound gives us a sense of re-integration leading to true health, peace, personal power, happiness and constructive frequencies that attract positive experiences and learnings.
“Sound will be the medicine of the future.”
