In today’s age of stress, anxiety, and frustration, it can seem very difficult to get any kind of break from the pressures of our daily activities. One way to make a positive change in your life and to relieve stress is to use sound therapy. The ways that your body reacts to certain sounds and vibrations can have a positive impact on your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.
Here are the top ten benefits that you can get from sound therapy:
1. Relief from stress
One of the most significant benefits that a person feels from sound therapy is relief from anxiety. The soothing sounds help to re-tune your brain to cope with stress better by replenishing brain energy with high-frequency sound.
2. Fewer headaches
Many people use sound therapy to get relief from chronic headaches and migraines. It can also address the underlying cause of many headaches, like stress and high blood pressure. One study reported that adults who suffered from migraines got relief from their symptoms after two weeks of therapy.
3. Boost in confidence
Creating new, positive patterns in your brain with sound therapy can also give you a significant confidence boost. You will be able to take charge of new challenges and have the confidence to make the necessary changes in your life.
4. Gives you more focus
Sound therapy can also help you regain focus in your life. This is achieved by lowering brain wave frequency to help you focus more. This can help you, not just in coping with day-to-day activities; sound therapy can even be used to achieve better athletic performance.
5. More energy
Much of the way you feel is connected to signals that your brain sends throughout the body. A body under stress feels tired and fatigued, and one of the main organs that affect stress levels in our ears. Sound therapy feeds the brain with stimulating sounds that motivate the brain to release latent energy.
6. Improved relationships with others
Too much stress is one of the major causes of breakdowns in relationships within the family, workplace, and anywhere else where we interact with others. With the help of sound therapy, your stress levels get reduced and can focus more on building and strengthening relationships.
7. Think more clearly
By using specific frequencies to help re-balance brain function, sound therapy can help you think clearer and avoid the temptation to rely on self-destructive and addictive habits. A healthy mind promotes a healthy body, and you can break the cycle of negative thinking and practices to enjoy a much calmer and focused life.
8. Improve organization skills
Obviously, when your brain is more focused, and there is ‘less going’ on in it, you can take control of your daily tasks on a whole new level. You will find that a course of sound therapy will help improve your organizational skills, which will benefit your work and family life.
9. Improved attention span
Many parents who have children that suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), speech, or language difficulties have found many benefits from sound therapy. This is because sound therapy can help retrain the brain to listen more efficiently and help focus attention on tasks.
10. Get relief from common ailments
Because many of the ailments and health problems that we face in the modern age are stress-related, you can get relief from these by regularly using sound therapy. For example, issues like hypertension, stomach pain, depression, and joint pains are all related to stress and anxiety. When the correct sounds vibrate around the body, it creates a healing environment where the body and mind start to heal itself.
Sound healing requires more research to be fully understood. What is a fact, though, is that those who try it are in support of it and that no one can argue with the power of music.
Whether you are looking for an alternative method of healing to coincide with traditional medicine, or are simply looking for a new way to relax, recuperate, and rejuvenate your mind, sound healing has so many possibilities that you are guaranteed to find something that suits you (even if it is only recreational).
Sound therapy is even more effective when used in conjunction with meditation. If you are looking to delve into different waters, perhaps it will be worth it to invest in and learn how to play and instrument.
All music can be used for sound healing therapy.
