The Benefits of Sound Therapy for the Body
Sound therapy has been around for centuries. The Tibetan monks and the Egyptians used it many years ago, but it seems to be making a comeback. Why are people getting excited about the benefits of sound therapy and how can it help you?
What is Sound Therapy?
Sound therapy, also known as vibrational medicine, is the ancient cultural practice of the use of sound to restore proper function in the body. The sounds used in this form of therapy are often made up of various instruments, which include the human voice.
Sound therapy is often used by those who are seeking relief from an ailment. Whether that be from chronic physical pain or mental health issues, sound therapy has been purported to alleviate common everyday nuisances such as insomnia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and it also helps to lower stress.
How Can Sound Therapy Benefit You?
Many people in the holistic realm believe in the body’s ability to heal itself. Problems tend to arise when we inhibit the ability by adding things like stress, poor diets, irregular sleep habits, and toxic chemicals to our lifestyles. In choosing to incorporate sound therapy into your life, you can help remove some of those things that inhibit your body from healing, which will in turn offer relief to your issues.
It Helps You Sleep Better
Poor sleeping habits have been linked to a variety of health issues. When you sleep, your body heals itself and goes through a detoxification process. All of those hormones you no longer need to use and all of the food you have absorbed nutrients from are turned into waste. Your muscles are given rest and your brain is able to properly store information. Without proper sleep, you miss out on a ton of benefits. And if this is a chronic issue, your body begins to function at a lower and lower capacity as time goes on. This can lead to issues such as:
● Hormone Imbalance
● Weight Gain
● High Blood Pressure
● High Cholesterol
Sound therapy helps the brain waves to move in a slower and lower frequency, which puts your body into a relaxed state. This is why it helps you sleep better. By improving your sleep patterns, you will probably notice a change in your mood, and energy levels. You are also allowing your body to properly detox and heal throughout the night.
It Lowers Your Stress Level
In our current world climate, it is safe to say that most people are living under some form of stress. Whether it be the stress of job stability, or fear of catching the Coronavirus. We could all use a little bit of stress-relief. It is believed that 77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health, and 73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health.
Living in a prolonged “fight or flight” state can have severe consequences on the body. If you are in a constant state of stress, your body is making a continuous supply of cortisol (the stress hormone.) Cortisol is necessary in high-stress situations, but can do harm over a long period of time. Increased cortisol levels have been linked to issues such as:
● GI Issues
● Weight Gain
● Hormone Imbalances
Sound therapy uses the vibrations it makes to impact us on a cellular level. Working to restore balance by putting us in a relaxed state, incidentally lowering our cortisol levels. When used over a course of time, it can help you maintain a lower stress level on a more regular basis. This is why many people report changes to both their physical and mental state. Whether you struggle with the everyday headache, or more severe symptoms. Consider using sound therapy as a more holistic option.
