The Power Of Sound
Sound Bath Therapy May Help Physical Pain and Anxiety
Sound, like light and color, is a universal language that can be understood by all people. It can be used as a therapeutic tool to relieve physical pain and emotional distress.
Sound bath therapy has been reported to have a wide range of applications, including relaxation, stress reduction and pain relief. Studies show that it is effective in reducing feelings of tension, anxiety and depression and increasing spiritual well-being. The use of sound therapy for treating mood disorders has been found to be safe and effective in previous research. The results also indicate that there may be an association between sound therapy and spiritual well-being.
The concept of using sound therapy as a form of healing is not new; in fact it has been around for centuries! It was first discovered in Tibet in the late 1800s when monks began experimenting with Tibetan singing bowls to help them meditate and relax. These bowls were later discovered outside of Tibet and were used for many different purposes by different cultures throughout history.
Over the last decade, sound baths have become very popular due to their ability to help people with physical pain or emotional distress. In fact, Journal of Evidence Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine published a study on the use of sound meditation, particularly the Tibetan singing bowl. Participants experienced significantly less tension, anger, fatigue and depressed mood.
The results from this study have important implications for future research on the effects of sound therapy on mood disorders. Future studies should focus on determining whether or not there is a causal relationship between hearing music and experiencing positive changes in mood, anxiety, or depression.
