It may be considered new age wellness but sound healing is hardly a new form of therapy. The ancient Greeks used music to cure mental disorders and throughout history, sound has been used to help people work faster, influence, and boost morale. Many also believe that sound can heal the body. That’s because humans have a natural instinct for sound therapy. Just think about how a favorite song can lift your mood.
Of course, these days, sound healing can take on many different forms. Because of how intuitive they are, music and voice are still very popular. However, many practitioners prefer to use instruments like singing bowls, tuning forks and gongs. That’s because these can work faster to achieve a healing effect.
