About Sound Healing | Abq


Dating back as far as the 12th century, singing bowls have been used throughout Asia for meditation, ritual, and ceremonial purposes. The sound produced by these metallic bowls is quite similar to a gong or a bell.  More recently singing bowls have been made from quartz crystal. 

The body has a natural affinity to quartz. On a molecular level, our cells contains silica, which balances our electromagnetic energies. Crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying and transmitting pure tone. As the sound affects brainwave activity one can enter into an altered state of consciousness. As different parts of the brain are affected, it is probable that they release different hormones and neuro-chemicals.

Sound Healing Approaches

It is believed that crystal singing bowls produce a vibrational sound that resonates with the chakras of the body.  This therapy is believed to transmit energy to your aura and directly affect your brain wave activity, supporting an improved state of consciousness.

Used in sound healing therapy, singing bowls are believed to calm and repair the mind as well as reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, improve breathing and circulation, alleviate aches and pains, strengthen the immune system, and improve the mood of the patient.

It is not unusual for someone to experience emotions tied to past traumas that were never fully experienced.  A crystal bowl session is a safe place where your body can begin to leg go of past trauma stored in the body.

Benefits of Sound Healing


Sound healing is an ancient practice that uses vibrations from instruments like singing bowls, gongs, and tuning forks to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.

Here are just a few of the benefits of sound healing:

  • Deep relaxation: The rhythmic sounds of instruments can help to slow down your heart rate and breathing, inducing a state of deep relaxation. This can be helpful for reducing stress, anxiety, and insomnia.
  • Pain relief: Sound healing can help to reduce pain by blocking pain signals from reaching the brain. It can also help to release muscle tension and improve circulation.
  • Improved mood: Sound healing can help to boost your mood and reduce symptoms of depression. The vibrations from the instruments can help to release endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects.
  • Enhanced creativity: Sound healing can help to stimulate the right side of the brain, which is associated with creativity. This can be helpful for people who are looking to boost their creativity or problem-solving skills.

If you’re looking for a natural way to improve your physical, mental, and emotional well-being, sound healing is a great option to try.
