Through my work as a Sound Therapist I have been exploring the effects of sound on a person, with the intention of boosting their physical energy and improving their health and emotional wellbeing. There are many different reasons why a persons energy could feel depleted. It could be due to giving too much of themselves to others, or a stressful situation, which leaves them in need of a restorative treatment. For some people it may be due to a short or long term illness.
One of the treatment tools I have been exploring are Himalayan Singing Bowls. As an artist working in sculpture I find the Himalayan Bowls fascinating. They are made from seven different metals, which are believed to correspond to the seven heavenly bodies: Gold – sun, silver – moon, mercury – mercury, coper – venus, iron – mars, tin – jupiter, lead – saturn.
When played the tone of each bowl is rich with harmonics as each metal resinates at a different frequency.
To enable you to experience the sound I have recorded a short relaxation with Himalayan Bowls, working on the base, heart and crown chakras. You can listen to it on the link to Soundcloud below:
