Sound healing is an ancient system that stretches back to the far reaches of human history.
Humanity’s belief in sound as a creative force is as old as time. Creation myths stretch
across the world and although their stories may differ, what often binds them together is the
theme of therapeutic sound. In ancient Indian texts, for example, OM (AUM) is described as
the sound of creation.
Scientists theorize that in each moment, we are totally surrounded by sound. Sound,
therefore, must have both a positive and negative cause and effect upon the body, mind and
spirit, and must manifest both as ease and dis-ease. I have found that the pure, clear
vibrations and harmonies of sound healing instruments and our voices have the unique
capacity to restore our natural resonance and bring us back into harmonic balance.
Sound has always been used to heal and bring balance to many aspects of our lives. It has
been linked with all of the great spiritual philosophies of the world and has been woven into
the fabric of humanity through time and civilizations. Many individuals have spent a lifetime
spreading transformative sounds to those who have had the wisdom to embrace its
immense potential for spiritual transformation and healing.
Sound tools from across the earth have become widely available today, as a result of
widespread global travel and the internet. The world in recent years has become a much
smaller place and many locations that were both difficult to reach and / or were closed to
outsiders are now mostly open to all. The result of our ever-changing world is that
therapeutic sound tools from a multitude of countries have been united and we are now
beginning to realize their positive potential.
As a result of global communication and travel, we have begun to work with and investigate
therapeutic sound as a healing system more than ever. Instruments of therapeutic sound are
being played throughout the world.
