"A SOUND HEALING EXPERIENCE is highly subjective as the client quickly enters into a state of deep relaxation or trance. The vibrations have both calming and energizing effects, and they provide quick and effective reduction or relief of pain, discomfort and stress. Many sessions produce a beneficial trance, or dissociative state, in which cycles of physical and emotional suffering are disrupted, allowing body, mind and spirit to restore balance and facilitate the natural healing process. This aspect alone can provide great relief."

"Sound healing is a form of energy medicine based on vibrational frequencies. Everything in the universe is made of energy, which vibrates at its own unique speed or frequency. That means everything is sound, whether it’s audible to us or not..."

"Our perception of sound depends on the biological equipment we are born with—our ears and our brains. How does the ear decode the acoustic information that we receive, and what can we learn about music from an understanding of how the ear and the brain respond to sound?"

"Synchronization comes into play when the vibrations of the singing bowls transform the normal vibrations and wavelengths of the human body to match their own. Meaning, a healthy organ vibrates at his own rhythms and frequency, while an unhealthy organ’s natural rhythm is disturbed. Singing bowls “recreate the original harmonic frequency, and stimulate the body to rediscover its own harmonic frequency, by making it vibrate to the frequency of the bowl so that when it is synchronized, it can vibrate independently."
Eva Rudy Jansen - Singing Bowls: A Practical Handbook of Instruction and Use
" Healing through sound and vibration has been known to reduce stress, improve concentration, reduce blood pressure, stimulate life force flow in the body, improve immunity, harmonize the chakras with the energy field, heighten intuition and perception, synchronize the brain hemispheres, remove mental and emotional negativity, and enhance creativity.
" Most importantly, stress is at the root of many of our twenty-first century diseases and it's through relaxation of the body that balance, health, and happiness can be restored. The salutary effect is produced by the unseen force of the vibrating bowls, combined with prayer. As much as 70 percent of the human body is made up of water, so when you strike a singing bowl next to your body, the vibration makes a mandala (a pattern) in your body, which is healing and relaxing."
Suren Shrestha- How to Heal with Singing Bowls
"....Dr. [Mitchell] Gaynor, who has an oncology practice in Manhattan, considers sound healing integrative medicine: not an alternative to science but a complement to it.
"He leads free biweekly support groups for his patients that involve chanting and playing Tibetan singing bowls. The bowls are made of several kinds of metal; when struck gently on the rim with a wood baton, they vibrate at different frequencies, making sounds not unlike church bells.
When Marisa Harris of Manhattan first saw Dr. Gaynor with one of his Tibetan bowls she thought he was going to prepare pasta. But when he began to play them, she said, it was the first time since she had been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer that she could hear something other than the words "you're going to die."
"It was as if all of a sudden there was room for possibility," she said. The sound, Ms. Harris said, penetrated her body and made her feel as if it were not only her thoughts about death that were breaking up, "but these poisonous cells, these cancer cells, were breaking up and I experienced something very healing."
"More than seven years later she plays her own singing bowls every day, often chanting the names of her three children, her husband and other loved ones. The bowls, she said, helped her express feelings she had bottled up inside. Sometimes, she said, she talks to the bowls about her fears. "The sound would take them away," she said, "out of my being, out of my existence."
"What's the Buzz? Sound Therapy" By STEPHANIE ROSENBLOOM
"Sound massage with singing bowls is a sound therapy where singing bowls are placed on the dressed body or into the health aura and tapped gently with a felt mallet. The calming harmonizing sounds as well as the gentle vibrations of the singing bowls induce a feeling of well-being and a very effective deep relaxation ("sound-based relaxation"). With people in good health sound massage will support the development of their inner harmony and provide them with energy and strength for their daily tasks. Creativity and productive energy will receive new impulses. With physical, mental and psychological issues, sound massage will help to bring relief from pain and problems that cause daily stress, worries, and anxiety."
The most important effects
- Fast achievement of deep relaxation, since the sounds appeal to a person’s original trust.
- Gentle massage and harmonization of each individual body cell through sound.
- Relief of tensions and blockages in the body.
- The client experiences his body to be pleasantly light and vibrating freely.
- Reinforcement of self-healing forces.
- Positive influence on self-confidence, creativity and productive energy,
- Attainment of renewed joie de vivre.
- Letting go of old patterns - a new order can evolve.
" A person does not hear sound only through the ears; he hears sound through every pore of his body. It permeates the entire being, and according to its particular influence either slows or quickens the rhythm of the blood circulation; it either wakens or soothes the nervous system. It arouses a person to greater passions or it calms him by bringing him peace. According to the sound and its influence a certain effect is produced. Sound becomes visible in the form of radiance. This shows that the same energy which goes into the form of sound before being visible is absorbed by the physical body. In that way the physical body recuperates and becomes charged with new magnetism."
Hazrat Inayat Khan, Mysticism of Sound
"During the 1960s, biophysicist Erwin Neher experimented and compared correlating brain waves altered by EEGs and brain patterns created in a meditative state (Neher 1961). While beta waves are produced in a normal state of the brain, alpha waves are produced in the brain during a state of meditation and relaxation. Theta waves are present in ‘half sleep’ and delta waves are produced only during deep sleep.Waves produced during a meditative state created by singing bowls are found to be exactly like those of alpha waves. According to Neher’s study, “The vibrating resonance of Tibetan bowls has been correlated with the generation of an alpha brain-wave state, while ting-shang, small cymbal-like bells used by Tibetan meditators, have been described as producing the consciousness-altering theta state” (Brummel-Smith 2008: 317). In addition, it has been shown that generally when one is induced in a meditative state, the production of alpha waves increases (Hardt 1994; Travis 2001).This demonstrates the physiological as well as psychological effects that the singing bowl has on the human body. Therapists have discovered the relaxation that the sounds of the bowls induce and are now using them in a clinical context."
Kathleen Humphries - Healing Sound: Contemporary Methods for Tibetan Singing Bowls
"Scientists have discovered an amazing fact about the sounds of the ebb and flow of ocean tides, people's voices, dolphin cries, and bird and cricket chirps. They sound the same! When researchers slow down voice recordings of people, they discover the people's voices sound like the ebb and flow of ocean tides. Then when researchers speed up the recordings, people's voices sound like dolphin cries. Speeded up more, like bird chirps. Even more like crickets. And guess what crickets chirps sound like slowed down? Yep. First like birds. Then dolphins. Then people.
But wait! There's more. While examining the recordings of spacecrafts Voyager I and II at the California Institute for Human Science, scientists discover the same sounds! NASA recordings from outer space sound remarkably like ocean sounds, choirs of voices singing, dolphins, birds and crickets. Additionally, sounds produced by the rings of Uranus are virtually identical to those produced by Tibetan bowls. Researchers believe that this similarity is no coincidence. Scientific medical studies are discovering that the sound vibrations of dolphins, Tibetan bowls and choirs have a profound healing effect. Could this be the collective unconscious that Carl Jung refers to? A living collective library that contains all the knowledge of the Universe?"

Massage Magazine , in November 2005 published an article called Samvahan, Vibrational Healing from India. The article describes how Tibetan Bowl Sound Therapy works to heal the body. 'The sound waves from the bowls spread, as the concentric waves from a stone dropped in a pond, into larger and larger circles through blood, flesh, organs and even bones, relaxing them and at the same time harmonizing and energizing them. In this way the more than 100 trillion cells that are the building blocks of the human body are receiving a gentle cell massage. A visual example of the cleansing power invoked here is what happens when we put jewelry or dentures into a supersonic bath and see how in a short while all the dirt and grime is shaken loose. The sound therefore is releasing energy blockages through out the body. The bowl vibrations are soothing enough to calm the nervous system yet powerful enough to travel deep into the body to penetrate the bones.' "Vibrations can travel into places you could never touch with your hands, to effect a healing that would be very difficult to recreate otherwise ."
In the words of in Jocelyn Godwin, ed. Cosmic Music, Inner Traditions, Rochester, Vermont 1989:
"Research has shown that when we are deprived of certain light frequencies we can become sick. One of the most fascinating scientific facts to emerge recently is that sound behaves in a similar fashion to light. In other words, sound and light act like vitamins and minerals in our body. Most people are deficient in certain tones and this is traced when the human voice is recorded and monitored. We need a certain balance of sound frequencies, which may vary from one individual to another, in order to maintain our bodies in a healthy state....."
“I relaxed into a profound sense of inner calm, peace, and oneness which I know to be the essential core of my living as a human being, and a true experience of deep inner healing,” Dr. Virilli says. “From this experience, I am convinced that the Tibetan singing bowls are an essential part of sound healing and an extremely valuable tool in integrative medicine today, especially for the healing of stress and for pain relief.”

Physiological and psychological effects of a Himalayan singing bowl in meditation practice: a quantitative analysis.Landry JM.
"AbstractPURPOSE:To determine the physiological and psychological effects of adding a Himalayan singing bowl (HSB) to a directed relaxation (DR) session.
DESIGN:Randomized crossover study.
SETTING:Community-based counseling practice.
SUBJECTS:Fifty-one participants completed two randomly assigned sessions beginning with either 12 minutes of HSB or silence, followed by a 20-minute DR session.
INTERVENTION:Random order of HSB intervention/silence prior to DR.
MEASURES:Blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) scores measured before and after both sessions.
ANALYSIS:Analysis of variance (ANOVA) compared differences between variables over time between both study days, and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) analyzed changes from baseline, controlling for baseline, age, and sex.
RESULTS:Fifty-one participants completed both sessions. There was a greater decline in systolic BP (p = .044) and HR (p = .003) with HSB compared to silence prior to DR. Changes in diastolic BP were greater with HSB, with a nonsignificant trend (p = .073). Hypertensive subjects (n = 20) had similar and significant BP changes with HSB and silence when compared to normotensive subjects (n = 31). PANAS scores fell significantly with both interventions.
CONCLUSIONS:BP and HR responses were enhanced by HSB exposure. HSB may be used as an adjunct to DR to produce physiological and psychological responses prior to DR."
"They resonate with every cell in the body to release blockages and restore balance. The bowls and their unique tones have been used to restore blood pressure, correct asthma and emphysema, and even to rebuild adrenal function after failure from steroid intake. They open and balance the meridians of the body and they improve the synapse response in the brain. They have been used with hyperactive children and can stimulate the immune system."
Ted Andrews - Sacred Sounds (p.158)
"Singing Bowls are capable ( by trained practitioners ) of influencing the Autonomic Nervous System, particularly the Parasympathetic Nervous System which is our ' rest and digest ' response, in contrast to the ' fight or flight ' response. Stimulation of the PNS decreases blood pressure, aids digestion, helps to metabolite sugar ( diabetes issues ), and can rest the mind to the point where a deeper spiritual awareness can manifest. Dissonance studies using Singing Bowls, has shown to be effective to children with ADD and ADHD. Certain techniques using Singing Bowls can produce magnetic effects which have been shown in clinical studies to increase tissue phosphorylization, which aids in fibroblast proliferation and the healing of tissue. Magnetics increases the level of alkaline phosphatase at fracture sites, which expedites healing of fractures. It affects the membranes of red blood cells, decreasing rouleaux formation and increasing oxygenation of tissue."

"A graduate of nurses Harald Tietz 2008 documented use of singing bowls and sound massage in the ICU 13i2 of the General Hospital (AKH) Vienna. Ten patients were awake and conscious, obtained from him sound massages and were subsequently interviewed. 90 percent of the participants reported that they "drop well" during the sound massage to. When repeated questioning after an hour, a large proportion of patients still felt relatively balanced, active and motivated. This survey shows that the patients in the often as stressful perceived atmosphere of ICU benefit of the sounds.
Show Selected case studies that the next bed and the nurse herself feel the offer sound massage as beneficial.
Experience from other clinics show that the sound massages and positive effect on the sleep patterns and thus often to the required sleep and pain mid affect l, which can often be reduced. In addition, is often reported that the motivation of the patient to actively participate in the healing process, increases. As a complementary method the sound massage can therefore be useful and effective support healing processes." The Results of the study were published in: Titzer, Harald (2010): Sound massage in the ICU. In: journal SOUND MASSAGE THERAPY 7/2010,

“...by listening to music with longer, slower sounds, one can usually deepen and slow the breath, allowing the mind to calm down. As with breathing rates, a lower heartbeat creates less physical tension and stress, calms the mind, and helps the body heal itself. Music is a natural pacemaker.”
Don Campbell - The Mozart Effect
"Finally, the question as to whether or not these bowls were originally singing bowls can be answered by the story of Joska Soos, a Hungarian shaman friend of mine whom I had the joy of meeting in the early 1980′s, whose experience seems to prove that they are, in fact, the originals. In the early 1980′s he went to a lama monastery in England for an extended retreat. The lamas he met listened to him, studied his horoscope, and advised him that he should become involved with sound if he wished to accelerate his spiritual development.
‘They took me to a small room and there were the bowls. I listened to them. Afterwards they presented me with some bowls. I did not have to go on retreat. I merely had to intensify my path, immersing myself in the sounds. I did this very attentively, without forcing myself. Slowly it came to me, the whole universe opened up. Amongst the lamas themselves, these bowls are only used in secret rituals by those who are acknowledged masters in sound. They have learned to sing the ritual songs and play the ritual instruments correctly. They use the singing bowls in secret and only for themselves, not in public, and not even for the other monks. It is strictly forbidden to talk about the rituals or the singing bowls themselves. This is because a knowledge of sound carries with it great power. It allows one to travel without moving. It is possible to come into contact with planets and their spirits, with the subterranean kingdom of Agartha and with Shambhala, the earthly centre of the Immortals. If you ask a lama with a singing bowl in his hands, whether or not it is true that they are used for psychic, psychological and physical purposes, he will smile and reply; ‘Perhaps.’”
