HEALTH / MIGRAINES – SOUND THERAPY
SOUND THERAPY RELIEVING CHRONIC PAIN AND MIGRAINES.
Pain is classified as chronic when it continues long after the original injury or disease has been healed. Chronic pain can be particularly tricky to manage, especially since the cause has already been purportedly treated.
The wonderful news is that a simple, all natural treatment known as “sound therapy” can help heal your chronic pain.
What is sound therapy and how can it help heal chronic pain?
We see evidence of the effect sound has on our nervous systems every day. The sound of clanging pots falling from cabinets or the shrill ring of a fire alarm fray our nerves. But a musical etude soothes our senses and helps us relax. Sound can improve our moods and help us concentrate, or push us to the brink until we yell, “Shut off that racket!”
Why exactly does sound have such an effect on our bodies and minds?
The emerging field of energy medicine attributes the healing properties of sound to attuned vibrations. Quantum physicists such as Einstein confirm that the universe and everything in it is made up of vibrational frequencies. We can tune up off key frequencies in our bodies by applying the harmonizing vibrations of sound therapy.
Bulgarian psychiatrist, GorgiLazanoff demonstrated the effect of sound therapy on learning capacity. He found that when people listened to Baroque music, such as the compositions of Bach and Vivaldi, learning capacity increased significantly. All they had to do was listen and breathe in rhythm to the beat.
Sound therapy has since been shown to help improve symptoms associated with…
Lack of concentration and focus
Poor cognitive processing
Sound therapy takes us from the active beta state and into the deeper states of relaxation: Alpha, theta and delta. In these deep states of relaxation, the body begins to regenerate and heal.
Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor, Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine Center in New York and author of The Healing Power of Sound, sums sound therapy up beautifully:
“Sound can play a role in virtually any medical disorder, since it redresses imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning (…). Moreover, it’s my belief that sound works on the physical level because it so deeply touches us and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes.”
