Sometimes even I'm surprised by the power of sound healing. I can understand how it puts people in a meditative state - that's easy. But pain relief? I've had to think about this one, and here's what I've come up with. If anyone out there has different ideas as to how this works, please share -- I'd love to hear them!
When people ask me what sound healing is and what it does, I find myself searching for a simple explanation. Most of my explanations in the past have had to do with brain entrainment and inducing a state of relaxation etc. But I've had more than one person tell me that they experienced pain relief.... not just an emotional response to the sound, but a physical one as well. Where was that coming from? How could that be happening?
This morning I came to this conclusion: Sound will change your brain's chemistry. That shift in brain chemistry can alter any particular function in the body, since the brain is "central command". One of the functions it can change is the perception of pain. I'm certain it can change others as well, but here's a testimonial from one of my patients who experienced amazing changes. The video itself isn't the highest quality - shot with my phone. The content, however, is terrific.
