SOUND HEALING is the educated and conscious use of the energy of sound to reach identified goals and promote wellness in the human system - including the expansion of consciousness. Sound Healing is founded on the premise that all matter is vibrating at specific frequencies. A basic physical concept is that an external sound source will significantly change the vibrational characteristics of another vibrating object. Science has proven that sound, or vibration, has a strong impact upon substance. For example, the study of Cymatics has shown how sound creates geometric patterns in matter. Dr. Emoto has proven that sound changes the molecular structure of water. However, more importantly, sound changes consciousness. Many ancient civilizations and modern indigenous cultures have used sound to heal and access higher levels of consciousness for thousands of years. The field of Sound Healing includes a wide spectrum of techniques and therapies ranging from the use of natural acoustic instruments and voice to complex technologies. Sound is now being used for simple relaxation, stress reduction, sleep disorders, alertness and clarity enhancement, learning, immune system enhancement, pain reduction, personal transformation, raising consciousness, and connecting to spirit.

THE HUMAN VOICE
I coach people to resonate their body with their own voice. Toning is one of the techniques for vibrating different areas of the body through singing, creating a deeper awareness of the way sound resonates naturally throughout the body, and how it effects us on all levels of our being, Physically, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
The use of tuning forks for healing, on acupuncture meridians, chakras and are now becoming widely accepted in the medical community. Tuning forks are also used in energy work and on the ears for mental/emotional balancing. More on tuning forks.
SOUND HEALING BASIC CONCEPTS
Your Root Frequency
Each of us has our own root or soul frequency. When in touch with that frequency we are centered, grounded and perfectly present. However, with all of the noise around us (including electromagnetic noise) we easily get distracted from our own frequency. Using toning we are able to regain our frequency. Not only do we have a core frequency, each organ, tissue, muscle, vertebrae, chakra and Etheric field has a resonate frequency. The more you become aware of this symphony within you, the more you can maintain a healthy musical flow within your whole system.
Medical Uses of Sound
Fabien Maman, a pioneer in Vibrational Medicine and founder of Tama-Do, Academy of Sound, Movement and Color has done extensive research and discovered that when you find the resonant frequency of a cell, it opens up the cell to receive energy. If you then turn up the volume at this resonant frequency the cell will explode. There are now very specific medical techniques being developed to destroy diseased cells with no side effects, and in a way that is totally noninvasive. In the field of sound healing it is becoming widely accepted that within a very short time that the whole medical field will be changing drastically as new techniques using sound become more widely accepted.There exists a wide range of techniques that range from simple sound massage to what is termed "sound surgery" where sound is utilized inside the body. This includes placing highly precise tones, such as tuning forks within specific organs. Of course, ultrasound has been used for years to break up kidney stones or plaque on our teeth. This type of sound application is also being explored on other diseases such as cancer. Fabien Maman shows cancer being broken up with sound in one of his books. There are many reports of people who have successfully rid themselves of cancer using their own voice. We are beginning to take back our power as we once again are able to heal ourselves.
The Harmonic Structure of Sound
Most people don't realize that when you hear listen to an instrument (or singer) playing one note that there are actually multiple notes making up the sound. These are the harmonics. The interesting part is that each of these harmonics that make up a sound are mathematical multiples of the root frequency. This same mathematical structure is found in the distance between the planets, in the weight of each vertebra, in chemistry, and in the Etheric fields surrounding the body. It is through such correspondences that we begin to see the "unified field" where we are all connected with each other, with nature and with every aspect of the universe. We are always connected with this unified field. The goal is to become more conscious of this connectedness. In my workshops FYV we use the sounds of nature to encourage deep listening and the relationship to oneself to the rhythm and Rasa of nature.
Music and toning also being used to help with the alleviation of pain. There are a wide range of surgeons who now use sound therapy before, during, and after surgery. It has been shown to substantially reduce the amount of anesthesia that is required. In a similar light, sound is also used to aid in both the birthing and dying processes.
Sound and Therapy
I counsel people to move through any mental/emotional blocks as well as physical pain and aliments, In my workshops I use sound as a tool in prisions, mental health facilites, other institutions, and Alzheimer patients, and it has proven to be extremely effective.
