Music Therapy and Sound Healing
What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is the prescribed use of music, and the relationship that develops through shared musical experiences, to assist or motivate a person towards specific, non-musical goals.
Board-Certified music therapists use their training as musicians, clinicians, and researchers to effect changes in cognitive, physical, communication, social, and emotional skills.
What is Sound Therapy?
Sound Therapy is the application of sound vibration through specific instruments or the voice to impact the positive health of an individual or group.
Practice generally involves application from various traditional cultures into a Western format to combine with contemporary evidenced based therapies such as music therapy.
Tibetan Singing Bowls Therapy
The use of Tibetan Singing Bowls as a healing art dates back over 2,500 years, and comes from the Himalayan regions of Tibet, India and Nepal. This modality has been recently brought to the Western world, with techniques and methodology taught to sound therapists and other healthcare professionals.
Bowls are placed on and around an individual or in a group setting to facilitate outcomes including reduction of stress and anxiety, decreased pain, increased energy and alertness, decreased depression and improved sleep.
