Why Sound? The Astounding Science of Sound Healing


We are sound. Sound is vibration. Vibration is energy.

Every culture has their own perception of this all-encompassing energy that reverberates throughout our bodies and the universe – qi or chi (Chinese), prana (Hindu), pneuma (ancient Greek), mana (Hawaiian), lüng (Tibetan), ruah (Hebrew), and vital energy in Western philosophy.

Various methods such as pranayama, qi gong, yoga, martial arts, acupuncture, tantra, etc. have been practiced for centuries to quiet the mind, relax the body, and balance our electromagnetic fields into harmonic resonance. These practices facilitate the shifting of energy through physical movement, intention and breath.  

Along with these body-centric modalities, there have been a myriad of tools and instruments used in ancient cultures - such as gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, drums and didgeridoos - to modulate dissonant energy back into harmonic resonance.

One example of sound healing in the field of Western medicine is lithotripsy – a practice using sound currents to break up stones in the kidney, bladder, or ureter. This is just one of numerous vibrational procedures that can be conducted through the body to relieve various tensions, ailments and psychological conditions.  

Just as musicians “tune up” in an orchestra, the frequencies of our cellular bodies react to sound waves in a similar way through physics principles of resonance and entrainment.

Entrainment is the introduction of a coherent frequency into an incoherent area. Through the use of sound vibrations, tensions in our bodies find adjustment and realignment into a state of equilibrium.  

Shattering Cancer with Resonant Frequencies

In Anthony Holland's TED Talk at Skidmore College, he introduces the physical nature of entrainment - sympathetic and resonant frequencies. He gives examples of the physical powerful realities that sound is capable of – from a boy who shatters glass using his voice, to the Tacoma Narrows Suspension Bridge that collapsed when the wind introduced a growing sympathetic frequency that exactly matched a part in the bridge.

He reveals fascinating research on how sound is used in modern medicine technology, and how scientists are now able to measure the frequency of certain cancerous diseases and shatter them sound! The implications and applications of entrainment are astounding. 


Just as sound have destructive qualities and affects in our physical world and health – from the florescent lights in offices to the reports of health conditions from those living near a wind turbine, sound can also be constructive to our bodies and wellbeing, when applied with conscious intention

Sound is everything and everywhere; even our thoughts are vibrational.

This video reveals how a 3-inch bladder tumour in a woman was healed used the power of vibrational intention. This was facilitated by highly trained Practitioners in a hospital in China, and this work continues to be administered today.
