Sound energy healing is rapidly gaining recognition internationally as an integral part of the healing process in treating cancer, chronic pain, stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, insomnia, depression, ADD and ADHD.

Significant trend indicators include

  • Sound energy healing is being included in various Integrative Medicine programs at prestigious medical facilities. For example, nationally known and California State Certified Tibetan Bowl Sound Healer Diane Mandle was invited to play Tibetan singing bowls for the Oncology staff and cancer survivors at La Jolla, California’s Sharp Mary Birch Hospital For Women as part of the June 4, 2006 National Cancer Survivor Celebration..

Training and certification programs are burgeoning, including the recent release of the first comprehensive multimedia home study course in Sound Healing using Himalayan instruments (Tibetan, Nepalese and Bhutanese bowls, tingshas, gantas and dorjes) by Sound Energy Healing Institute in Encinitas, California.

Dr. David Simon, medical director of neurological services at Sharpo Cabrillo Hpospital in San Diego and medical director at the Deepak Chopra Center In Carlsbad, California, found that chants are chemically metabolized into “endogenous opiates” that act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.

A growing number of scientists and medical professionals are outspoken in their support of using sound energy as part of the healing process. For example,

“ Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder”

"Sound enters the healing equation from several directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may calm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help to regulate the immune system--the healer within."

Mitchell Gaynor, M.D., Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Strang-Cornell Cancer Prevention Center and New York Hospital and author of the book The Healing Power of Sound : Recovery from Life-Threatening Illness Using Sound, Voice, and Music

Dr. Gaynor’s research shows that the sound vibration of Tibetan singing bowls affects the disrhythmic motion found in cancer cells, and causes a harmonious transformation. In a blind study he found there was a 50% shorter recovery time in chemotherapy patients for those who used the bowls regularly. Not only that, when bowls were used in the early stages of cancer, during consultations with patients, their level of anxiety and stress was greatly reduced.

“Sound therapy is one of the prototypical vibrational healing modalities. Sound produces measurable vibratory feelings throughout the body, depending upon the frequency and amplitude of the sound used. There have been a wide variety of sound healing developments over the last ten to twenty years. Certain sounds most likely have a healing influence upon the body because they influence the geometric patterns and organization of cells and living systems."

Dr. Richard Gerber, author of Vibrational Medicine

"We know that sounds are stimulating and we also have the technology to be able, in fact, to recharge people with them…The ear, the vibration sensor, serves to charge the organism with electrical potential…The charge of energy obtained from the influx of nervous impulses reaches the cortex [of the brain], which then distributes it [the energy] throughout the body toning up the whole system and imparting greater dynamism to the human being"

! Dr.Alfred Tomatis, surgeon, Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, and a pioneer in Applied Psychology

“When the internal and external are at odds with each other--dissonant--the result is disease or a break in harmony. In tonal music the appreciator sought the fundamental in the music as a metaphor of spiritual unity, the ending of a journey. In new music one seeks the fundamental in one's self; the return to the fundamental is anywhere, anytime, and any direction, because the fundamental is everywhere and here."

David Bohm, quantum physicist, author of Wholeness and the Implicate Order

“In my own research with sound using biofeedback equipment I found that the harmonics produced by the Himalayan (Tibetan) Singing Bowls have transformative abilities. Brain activity, heart rate and body temperature have decreased during sessions, creating a peaaceful state of being while energizing the brain.”
