Sacred Vibration meets Healing Touch
A fusion of harmonic vibrations, sound waves, and mindful touch to guide you, hold you and assist energy to move through your physical and subtle body.
Sound Ceremony offers the opportunity to go deep into the subconscious and provides an opportunity to clear stagnant energy on many levels—physical, mental, and emotional.
The only work that you have to do is get clear about your intention.
After that, the natural processes of vibration, entrainment, and resonant frequency allow blocked energies and traumas to be released and the body reorganizes itself accordingly.
Entrainment through Sound
Entrainment is a universal phenomenon wherein interacting systems tend to synchronize—and the science behind sound healing hinges on it.
Sound healing engages the power of scientifically identified sounds to restore the body to healthy resonant frequencies, which differ by organ.
In other words, sound healing employs the energy of sound therapeutically. In the same way that a qualified composer utilizes perfect fifths, a sound healing session elicits intended effects through various sonic frequencies.
The Science of Sound/Vibration Healing
The body’s cells react and interact with the vibrations, the following actions occur:
The nerve bundles of the spine, brain stem, and limbic system are stimulated.
The medulla, located in the brain stem, is stimulated by the sound activating the auditory nerve, which is connected to all of the body’s muscles.
The body receives a signal to relax.
The brain is flooded with chemicals that have a positive effect, lifting the mood of the individual.
Humming to Calm the Nervous System
The vagus (Latin for wandering) nerve is far-reaching, extending from the brainstem down into your stomach and intestines, innervating your heart and lungs, and connecting your throat and facial muscles. Stephen Porges’ polyvagal theory proposes that there are three evolutionary stages of the vagus nerve and that regulation of nervous system states is necessary for the facilitation of deep trauma pattern shifts.
Nerve fibers existing throughout your stomach and intestines are referred to as your enteric brain. 90% of those nerve fibers connect back up to the brain through the vagus nerve. A key player in the body-mind connection, the vagus nerve is behind your gut instinct, the knot in your throat, and the sparkle in your smile. You can think of the vagus nerve as a two-way radio communication system helping you stay in touch with your sensations and emotions.
Activation of the vagus nerve keeps your immune system in check and releases an assortment of hormones and enzymes such as acetylcholine and oxytocin. This results in reductions in inflammation, improvements in memory, and feelings of relaxation. Vagus nerve stimulation has also been shown to reduce allergic reactions and tension headaches.
The vagus nerve is connected to your vocal cords and the muscles at the back of your throat. Singing, humming, chanting, and gargling can activate these muscles and stimulate your vagus nerve. And this has been shown to increase heart-rate variability and vagal tone.
