The use of sound as a healing tool dates back thousands of years. The field of sound healing is gaining considerable attention as sound pioneers promote the healing benefits of music, tones, and instruments. Modern science is now in agreement with what the ancient mystics have told us—that everything is in a state of vibration, from the electrons moving around the nucleus of an atom to planets and distant galaxies moving around stars. As they’re creating movement, they are creating vibration, and this vibration creates sound. So everything is creating a sound, including the sofa that we’re sitting on, or this table, or our bodies. Every organ, every bone, every tissue, every system of the body is creating a sound.
When we are in a state of health, we’re like an extraordinary orchestra that’s playing a wonderful symphony of the self. But what happens if the second violin player loses her sheet music? She begins to play out of tune, and pretty soon the entire string section sounds bad, then the entire orchestra is off. This is a metaphor for disease. What if we could somehow project the correct resonant frequency to that part of the body that is vibrating out of harmony, and cause it to vibrate back into its normal, healthy rhythm, restoring it to a condition of health? That’s the basic principle of using sound as a healing modality.
