Sound and “Your Healing…”

30 Nov. 2022

The Leisure Show Advisory Board member Michelle Saudan, an Integrated Wellness Specialist dives into how sound creates an environment for internal healing.


To be whole is the very meaning of healing.

The use of sound as a healing modality dates back to pre-historic times when our ancient ancestors across cultural bounds used chants, mantras, drums and many other instruments to heal people. In Zimbabwe, where I was born, the Mbira (Dzavadzimu- "Voice of the ancestors") was and is still used today to initiate a healing ceremony.

Everything in nature, in existence vibrates at certain frequency, the ocean, bird songs, movement of our planet etc. We are made up of vibrating atoms that can emit, receive and store energy. Every atom is a vibrating source of energy and "Energy communicates with Energy".

Harmony is when Sound Therapy takes away the stress from the system by entangling your system to the harmonious vibrations. Therefore our system will naturally open to it because states of harmony like love, calm and many others alike are our Natural states of being in which true deep healing takes form.

"Newtonian Physics is what our conventional medicine is based on. Allopathic medicine has an emphasis on the mechanical/physical realm as opposed to the invisible. This is why at times the practices surrounding energy healing modalities like Sound Healing may be perceived as mythical. In 1925, the Quantum Theory was discovered and this instills the fact that Quantum physics is a much bigger science of which Newtonian Physics is a smaller compartment of" - Dr. Bruce Lipton.

Although there is a tone and color that corresponds to each of the chakra centers, each part affects the totality. You may feel the effects in one section of your body more deeply, but the vibrational sound will also travel throughout your entire subtle energy field. The human body and the entire earth are made up of energy, vibrating at different frequencies. When out of rhythm, dis-ease and dis-harmony result. Therefore vibrational sound healing addresses these imbalances or blockages of the subtle-energy channels.

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in NY has been using sound with cancer patients. This includes Tibetan Bowls, Crystal bowls and chanting.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.

One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us. It does this on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning. Therefore, it plays a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” His research shows that the sound vibration of the bowls" affects the dysrhythmic motion found in cancer cells, causing a harmonious transformation.

In simplified terms, this supports the theory that Sound Healing creates an environment that exposes your system to harmony which then allows for healing to take place.

Sound + (Therapist & Your) Intention = Healing.

As one seeking healing, you need to open more than your ears and allow yourself to be receptive.
