As a result of modern life many people feel stress dis-ease and unbalance, which can result in fatigue and illness.
- Instruments, such as Tibetan bowls, gongs, tuning forks and flutes have the means by which harmony is restored in the body on a psychological as well as a psycospiritual level. These are instruments that hold organic and acoustic tones derived from nature, rich with overtones. They resonate and entrain within the brain of the listener, prompting a profound state of relaxation and as well as a subconscious openness.
- Being “showered” by these instruments helps the body retrieve its original, healthy frequency, making the body entrain to the frequency of the instruments so that when it’s synchronized it can vibrate independently.
- Stimulated by the powerful vibrations of these instruments, the body is able to tune into its own undisturbed frequency.
-The listener, who is lying down comfortably experiences the pulse rate slowing down while the breath is restored to its normal rhythm. Thus one enters an expanded state of consciousness.
-Since the human body is over 70% water and sound travels 5 times more efficiently through water than through air, sound frequency stimulation ,directed into the body, is a highly efficient means for a total body stimulation, especially on the cellular level.
-Researches show that these instruments help the listener go into to Alpha and Theta waves. frequencies which enable deep relaxation as well as a heightened receptivity to healing.
-The human ear is connected to virtually every organ in the body by the vagus nerve. A cranial nerve that travels both on the right and left side of the body from the head to the abdomen.passing through the neck and the thorax into the abdomen, and supplied sensation to part of the ear, the tongue, the larynx and the pharynx.
This nerve is stimulated by sound.
Nitric oxide (no)
Research suggests that vibration transferred to neuronal endothelial and immune cells through tuning forks stimulates nitric oxide, A tiny gas molecule, essential for healthy functioning of the organs. it sets of a cascade of physiological events which direly influence our health, well being, state of mind and consciousness.
by understanding nitric oxide , we can establish a scientific link between molecular science, medicine and sound healing.when we are under stress , the sympathetic/ parasympathetic is often thrown of balance . the result is a diminished NO production .compromised NO function leads to a depressed immune function which overtime results in a tissue pathology.over a long period of time, if NO rhythms are not stimulated,symptoms such as fatigue, lack of energy, depression ,head aches poor digestion and more can escalate into major diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, auto immune diseases and cancer.
when the nervous system comes into tune and nitric oxide is stimulates some of the benefits attributed by researches are : enhanced cell vitality, a stabilized body metabolism that regulates digestion and body weight, an enhanced vascular flow, leading to increased energy, stamina, sexual drive, enhanced memory and a greater sense of well being. further more research has demonstrated that a proper stimulation of NO acts as a preventative to the development of arteriolar sclerosis ,stroke, heart attack, diabetes,Alzheimer’s, auto immune diseases and cancer.
(John Beaulieu, human tuning)
“Bathing” in the sound of these instruments ,rapidly spikes up the production of Nitric oxide. When” No” production is stimulated, it sets up a cascade of beneficial events which can be experienced as: stronger immune system, vascular flow, more resistance to stress, greater levels of energy and stamina, sharper mental clarity and more.
Imagine taking a musical break, in the middle of a day’s work, being “bathed”by acoustic musical instruments.
-The participants will be sitting or laying down- enabling the sound and vibrations of the healing instruments to spread throughout the body, cleansing and harmonizing at a cellular level. relaxing , rejuvenating and raising vibrations to a higher level of consciousness and state of being .
Instruments:Gongs, Tibetan bowls, bells and chimes, flutes, bird whistles, drums, kalimba, overtone singing , rattles and more.
The sound shower is designed for groups, couples and individuals.
