Reducing Stress and Anxiety with Sound Therapy

In ancient cultures like China, Japan, and Nepal, connection with a higher being and a feeling of being at one with everything around them was important for achieving balance and harmony in life. These cultures used various methods to achieve that feeling of oneness through meditation, chanting, and bells. Singing bowls are special bells that can be struck with a mallet to create different sound frequencies. They are first struck to create what’s known as a “first frequency,” and then two or three overtones are produced in harmony to the original sound. These promote focus and relaxation, and modern science now backs the original hypothesis by the ancient Asian cultures that sound can promote general well being.
