Sound therapy is one of the latest trends in the wellness space, though it has been around for thousands of years. During sound healing therapy, you and your therapist use various sounds to improve emotional and physical well-being. This therapy can come in several forms, ranging from sound baths to meditation or dance sessions. Often, you’ll engage in more than one of these, depending on your needs.
In many cases, participants will either sit or lay down during the sessions. Some practitioners will apply vibrations directly to your body. Almost anything is suitable for sound therapy when used intentionally, so many instruments can be used, including singing bowls, gongs and Tibetan bowls.
Sound healing treatment is an excellent part of recovery for people with everything from depression to anxiety to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
