The thought of getting started could be overwhelming and might cause stress and anxiety. Some of us might also be recovering from illness or injury and are looking for something that can help speed up our recovery. Sound healing has been shown to be extremely effective for mental and physical wellbeing. In this sound healing technique, expert Shraddha Iyer, delivers the soothing sounds that vibrate through the body making you feel calm and relaxed.

Sound Healing Technique
The sound healing technique involves Shraddha striking the sound bowl and then focussing your attention on a part of your body as you listen to the vibrations. With each strike of the bowl, she moves your focus to a different part of your body so that the vibrations can travel all the way from your feet to the top of your head. You can feel the calming and healing effect as you relax and let the sound vibrations flow through you.
Shraddha uses different bowls to create different frequencies of vibrations. The varied frequencies can better target the different areas of the body for optimal blood circulation and healing. The overall effect is also very calming on the mind.
How Does Sound Healing Work?
Sound is vibrations in the air that are picked up by our eardrums and translated by our brain as a certain type of sound. As the sound vibrates through us it resonates with the various cells in our body and helps to release energetic blocks. As energy starts to flow easily through the body it enhances blood circulation, which in turn promotes healing and detoxification of the body.
Sound also has a calming effect on the mind. Certain frequencies of sound are able to slow down brainwaves and bring us to a more relaxed state. In this state, the mind is able to de-stress and feel very calm. The calm mind causes hormonal changes, taking the body out of fight or flight mode and promoting repair and regeneration of cells and tissues. This is how sound can also help to heal physical injury and illness.
