Himalayan Sound Therapy is a relaxing wellness treatment with proven health benefits. It reduces stress and tension, improves mental clarity, and feels amazing. You're going to love Himalayan Sound Therapy at the Halifax Professional Centre!
For thousands of years, music has been used therapeutically to induce a meditative, relaxed state, to free the mind from negative tension, relieve pain, and even to heal. And while just listening to music can have positive effects on us, sound therapy does much more.
The specially-designed sound therapy bed sends vibro-acoustic sound waves directly into your body. These gentle waves of low-frequency sound are felt as soothing vibrations and are fine-tuned to melt away stress. It's similar to how ultrasound breaks up kidney stones, except these sound waves break up muscle tension.
Sound therapy creates a sense of inner harmony and balance. How?
By synchronizing the mind and body using sound waves that are both heard and felt. This produces new synaptic connections in the brain and stimulates production of feel-good neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and endorphins. That's why sound therapy is so good for your brain health.
You'll be fully clothed on the sound therapy bed in a spacious, private room with a starry night sky projected above you. Purified ionized air makes it feel like you're outside in the mountains. The practitioner will calibrate the equipment for you, then leave while you enjoy your session alone (about 50 minutes).
Through audiophile headphones, you'll experience the mystical tones of centuries-old Himalayan sound healing bowls. These instruments have been clinically proven to reduce stress and produce feelings of deep relaxation and inner peace (2016 study, University of California San Diego). And you won't just hear the sound, you'll feel it through the sound therapy bed.
The gentle sound vibrations flowing through your body cause theta-wave brain activity to increase. That's the brain activity associated with meditation and imagination. So don't be too surprised if you feel a natural high or are able to imagine vivid mental imagery.
When your session ends, the practitioner will enter with a warmed face-towel for you.
Some people find their sleep improves after a session, or lucid dreaming happens. You may feel healthier and more balanced, with increased creativity and imagination in the days and weeks that follow. Compassion and kindness may come more easily.
