Vibrational Sound Healing
- excerpts from "Sound Healing" by Marjorie De Muynck, M.Mus., LMP
A therapy featuring the universally recognized vibrational frequency of Ohm and its overtones - an ancient and sacred primordial tone celebrated by cultures throughout the world for its healing & spiritual properties. This fundamental tone is based on the elliptical orbit of the Earth, and owes its modern calculation to Swiss scientist & astronomer Hans Cousto. The tone is raised 32 octaves to 136.1 hz to be audible to the human ear.
Thus, to resonate with Ohm is to unite with the life-supporting energies of Earth, which positively affects our biological rhythms and circadian clock. Through sympathetic resonance, we begin to sync and entrain with natural cycles. Aligning with these earth rhythms enables us to find balance. We are freed from the continuous, low-level stress elicited by the many unnatural sounds that surround us: computers, power transformers, phones, traffic, planes, televisions, harsh music, and the hum of city life.
The application of sound vibration to the physical and subtle body opens the energetic pathways where the Qi, or natural life force, flows. As a result, energy blocks are removed - increasing the flow of Qi - facilitating homeostasis through which profound healing begins.
Sound healing is based on the principle that everything in the Universe is made of vibration. Sound is the basis of form & shape, and sound healing is possible because the human body, on the atomic level, is not solid but rather is comprised of vibration. And sound healing is all around us. Some people find that music, song and the spoken word have healing effects: the voice of a loved one, the sound of a child's laughter, a stranger's kind hello. Others experience healing in the vibrations that emanate from nature: a gentle breeze, the rhythmic waves of the ocean, a cat's familiar purr, a bird singing in the morning, or crickets at dusk.
Your treatment involves the application of mid, low, or high octave Ohm tuning forks to specific acupressure points, in accordance with the principles of Asian medicine, to activate vital energy centers. High octave tuning forks are used to sweep the energetic field that surrounds your body. A crystal singing bowl beneath the treatment table is periodically struck like a gong to clear and open your Heart chakra (F tone). The cells of the wood in the table acts as a resonating chamber to harmonize and enhance the treatment while ambient music utilizing the same Earth tones wraps you in the soothing sounds of nature.

"The imperishishable sound,
Is the seed of all that exists.
The past, present, and the future,
Are all but the unfolding of OM."
