Sonotherapy

Everything that surrounds us is sound, the rain, the wind, the sea, thunder… We are immersed in sound and it forms a part of us.

 

From our very first moments inside the womb, we sense the first sounds from our mother – her heartbeat. By the fourth month, we not only hear the sounds of our mother’s body, but also those coming from the outside world.

 

Sounds, rhythm and, consequently, music have always been associated with human beings, and we are, in and of ourselves, pure rhythm – all you have to do is listen to your heartbeat.

Music is a universal language that not only soothes the beast. There is evidence of the use of sound throughout history.

 

Pictorial representations of sorcerers dancing and playing musical bows were found in Trois-Frères (France), dating back to 15,000 B.C. Over 6,000 years ago, in Mesopotamia, it was commonly accepted that deities could destroy the crops and flood the lands, however, it was also believed that they could be appeased with voices and music.

The sonotherapy applies different sounds
like a therapy in humans in order to
achieve a comprehensive welfare.

Music has been a powerful stimulant for mankind since ancient times; however, we have forgotten its great power to a certain degree. Music therapy can be defined as music or melodies used for therapeutic purposes, restoring health on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Music therapy offers numerous benefits:

 

· Produces changes in heart rate, breathing patterns, and muscle tension.
· Stimulates the expression of problems and concerns.
· Favors emotional development.
· Improves auditory and tactile perception.
· Stimulates motor skills activity and improves coordination.
· Helps with personal development and overcoming learning disabilities.
· Improves the immune system.
· Improves self-esteem and the ability to communicate for sick patients, etc.

 

Various studies have determined the effectiveness of music therapy:
“Music therapy as an alternative for reducing anxiety in breastfeeding babies”
“Can a music therapy session reduce pain in hospice patients?”

 

We go one step further. We simplify the use of music to Sonotherapy. Sound is the root of everything – it precedes music and essentially determines who we are. That’s why Sonotherapy uses sound as a therapy for the overall wellbeing of human beings. Sound frequencies can serve as a sedative, and certain patients can be healed through harmony with specific frequencies, instilling a sense of balance in them. These are the foundations of Sonotherapy.

 

We therefore consider Sonotherapy to be a comprehensive therapy that uses sound to restore harmony, projected through sound waves or vibrations with one sole purpose: to restore the human being’s internal harmony. And what better way to conclude this section than with a quote from famous Sufi Master Inayat Khan: “For there is nothing in this world which can help one spiritually more than music. Meditation prepares, but music is the highest for touching perfection”.
