What is Sound Healing ?


“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration” ~Nikola Tesla

Let’s start at the beginning…. what is sound anyway and how can we use it to heal our body, soul & spirit?

Sound healing is not a new concept. Not only is it fantastic for deep relaxation but it is an ancient modality that is re-emerging and science can help explain why it works.

The Science Behind Why Sound Therapy is Effective : 

Simply put, all sound is an indication that something is moving or vibrating. All sound waves that we hear ( and even the sound waves that are imperceptible to the human ear)  are produced by a disturbance of matter.  These disturbances are called vibrations. Vibrations are measured by frequency ( Hertz, Hz ) and detected by our ears. ( More on that below )  Sound requires a “medium” or substance to pass through and sound is able to travel more easily through water than air because of water’s density. Because water is an excellent medium for sound to travel through &  humans are more than 70% water in substance, our bodies are perfect conduits of sound waves!  Dr. Masaru Emoto says, “Understanding the fact that we are essentially water is the key to uncovering the mysteries of the universe.”  Sound travels not only travels through air into our eardrums, but sound can also travel spectacularly through our entire body !

Because all matter is energy ( thanks to our Science lessons from Einstein … E =MC² )… we know that everything vibrates. All matter has a resonant frequency ( the rate at which it vibrates). It is measured in Hertz (Hz). The human ear can hear from approximately 20 Hz to 20,000Hz. Some animals can hear up to 40,000Hz and beyond. Porpoises, for instance, can hear up to 150,000Hz. The Beluga whale can hear up to 123,000Hz.

The reason that a dolphin’s or a whale’s sound is able to be heard exceptionally well for thousands of miles is because, as discussed,  sound travels so well through water! 

Scientists have discovered that each organ, tissue, muscle etc, has a resonant frequency. ( like an original factory setting ) However, because of trauma, stress, emotional distress, toxins, poor health habits and electromagnetic noise, these resonant frequencies can become unbalanced. 

The video below is a great example of that … one shows what happens when resonant frequencies are matched and the volume is then turned up… this is called “destructive resonance.” ( the ultrasound machine is an example used in the medical community to disintegrate  kidney stones and gallstones)  You can see a demonstration of how destructive resonance works  HERE.

Science has proven that cells can be greatly impacted by frequencies.  Sound therapy uses a variety of frequencies & combinations of sounds  to restore cells to their resonant frequency for optimal, vibrant well-being of the mind, body and soul.  It has been proven by science that intention & vibration ( for example, sound waves ) can alter the molecules of a substance. For example,  in the study of Cymatics, it is shown how sound creates geometric patterns in matter. Dr. Emoto has proven that sound changes the molecular structure of water.  His study showed that when speaking different words over a glass of water, the water molecules respond accordingly. For example, when water had been exposed to loving words, the patterns of that water became brilliant and complex. In contrast, asymmetrical, chaotic patterns would form when the water was exposed to negative thoughts or words. 

And be sure to check out THIS ARTICLE about the life changing research of Dr. Royal Rife Resonant frequencies and inventions in the 1920-1950 ! He successfully & repeatedly killed cancer cells ! Unfortunately, less than 17 years after his miraculous discoveries, his inventions and research were confiscated. You can visit this WEBSITE for more information on Dr. Royal Rife’s research.

It is our belief at Ancient Paths Wellness that our bodies have been Divinely created to heal themselves with the proper care and tools. We believe that there are ways that the human body can return to resonant sound health through modalities such as frequencies and sound. When your body is experiencing ill-health or dis-ease, the cells, organs, or tissues that have been impacted are out of “tune” and have gone out of sync  with their resonant frequency. It is our intention at Ancient Paths Wellness that people are empowered and equipped with tools to encourage their bodies to heal, rest into wholeness &  regain optimal health in their body, mind and spirit.

Dr. John Beaulieu, ND, PhD explains:

The fundamental principle of Energy Medicine is that an underlying energy field generates physical, emotional, and mental behaviors or symptoms. If we change the energy field, the physical, emotional, and mental behaviors will also change.
