What is Sound Healing?

Updated: Mar 21

Sound Healing helps bring the body into a state of balance by using frequency to shift our brainwaves to a stable frequency through entrainment. We can entrain our brains to shift from our "normal operation" beta waves state to a more relaxed state in gamma, a meditative state in theta, or even delta where deep sleep and healing occurs.

Sound healing utilizes various sound frequencies to promote healing and relaxation. While it may seem esoteric to some, there's a growing body of scientific evidence supporting the effectiveness of sound healing in improving both physical and mental health.

Understanding Sound Healing:

At its core, sound healing operates on the principle that everything in the universe, including our bodies, vibrates at its own unique frequency. When our bodies fall out of harmony due to stress, illness, or emotional turmoil, it's believed that sound therapy can help restore balance by aligning these frequencies. This can be achieved through various techniques such as chanting, singing bowls, tuning forks, and binaural beats.

Stress Reduction and Relaxation:

One of the most well-documented benefits of sound healing is its ability to induce a state of deep relaxation and alleviate stress. Research has shown that listening to soothing sounds can reduce levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in the body. A study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that participants who underwent sound therapy experienced significant reductions in stress, anxiety, and depression levels compared to a control group.

Pain Management:

Sound healing has also shown promise in managing chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and migraines. A study published in Pain Management Nursing revealed that patients who received sound therapy alongside conventional pain management techniques reported lower pain intensity and improved overall well-being. The rhythmic vibrations produced during sound therapy has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, providing relief from discomfort.

Enhanced Cognitive Function:

The therapeutic effects of sound healing extend beyond the physical realm to encompass cognitive function and mental clarity. Research conducted at the University of California, Irvine, found that exposure to specific sound frequencies can enhance brainwave activity associated with focus, concentration, and memory retention. This suggests that incorporating sound therapy into daily routines could potentially boost productivity and cognitive performance.

Immune System Support:

Another intriguing aspect of sound healing is its potential to strengthen the immune system. Studies have shown that certain frequencies can stimulate the production of immune cells and enhance the body's ability to fight off infections. Additionally, the relaxation induced by sound therapy can help reduce inflammation, which is linked to a wide range of chronic health conditions.


From reducing stress and alleviating pain to improving cognitive function and supporting immune health, the benefits of sound therapy are far-reaching and multifaceted. Incorporating sound healing practices, whether through listening to music with binaural beats or solfeggio frequencies, or receiving a soundhealing session, offers a holistic approach to wellness that nurtures both body and mind. As we continue to study sound healing and it's profound effects on human physiology, the potential for sound healing to revolutionize healthcare and well-being is truly awe-inspiring.
