Studies have shown that sound directly impacts the entire body from the mind, nervous system, muscles, heart rate, and circulatory system. Throughout history, cultures and religions have used the power of sound in chanting, music, hymns, and many other applications. Sound therapy uses healing sounds and vibrations for therapeutic purposes. It is said to go back to ancient Greece when they used music to relieve mental health disorders.
Sound therapy uses musical notes and different sound frequencies to calm and soothe the mind, body, and soul. To benefit from the power of music you can listen, sing, dance or move, meditate, play an instrument, and so much more. The instruments used for sound therapy are endless.
Crystal bowls are also used for sound therapy, made with different types of crystal, the most common type being Clear or White Quartz. The bowls are beautiful to look at and sound amazing when they are tapped or played. Like Tibetan Singing Bowls, crystal bowls come with a mallet that you press lightly against the outside rim of the bowl as you circle it around the rim. It's similar to when you take your finger and rub it on the rim of crystal glass, and it almost magically starts singing.
When you hear the tone of a crystal bowl you may find the experience a sense of deep relaxation, stress, and anxiety relief, as the sound stimulates the immune system, and can also help to lower the heart rate with the soothing sounds. The sounds can also help to slow down your mind so you can think clearly and effectively. On the spiritual side, crystal bowl tones also help to balance and clear the Chakras in your energy system.
The crystal singing bowls are tuned to the 7 Chakras. So you have the notes of a classic music scale C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and each corresponds with a different Chakra going from the Root Chakra up to the Crown Chakra. So the Root corresponds with the note C and relates to your physical needs and the feeling of stability. So you could tune into this sound vibration if you felt the need to ground yourself more.
You can explore the amazing frequencies and vibrations of crystal singing bowls by playing them for yourself as needed. Or, you can also go to a crystal singing bowl session where someone plays the healing bowls for you. Discover the amazing world of sound therapy and see what it does for you.
