Vibrational Music Therapy gently invites stuck energy to move or vibrate again… or over-stimulated energy to explore stillness.
Crystal bowls are made with 99.8% quartz silica crystal the music created is a form of vibrational therapy which validates that all matter based on an atomic structure, like in the human body, is in a state of vibration and the frequency at which an person most naturally vibrates at is called a resonance.
The chakras, bones and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of “sync” or balance, “dis-ease” is created. A body that is in a healthy state of being is when each cell and each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony.
Quartz crystals have many physical properties. They amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy. We see the results in microphones, radio and television equipment, timepieces, laser tools, and computers to name a few. Our bodies, too, are crystalline in structure.
Human bodies are composed of millions and million of crystals. One example is our bones are made of a combination of collagen, which is a protein in the form of a double helix intertwined around itself, the forms the framework for a type of calcium phosphate crystal called “apatite” crystals. When we work with crystals and sound from the crystal bowls a harmonization occurs, there is an integration process that goes on between the external and internal vibrations.
The powerful vibrations of the crystal bowls quickly spreads through our body which consists of about 90% water and the frequency creates a very delicate internal sound massage of all the cells in the body encouraging balance. Some oscillation, when applied to the human body, will effect a micro massage of tissues and cells which will balance and improve blood circulation, metabolism, and the pulsing of the nervous system and endocrine glands.
It has been verified that sound can be used to affect and change our brain waves. “Alpha” waves are present in the brain during states of meditation and heightened consciousness.
When the waves produced by the singing crystal bowls are recorded, they produce a measurable wave equivalent to alpha brainwaves.
As different parts of the brain are affected, it is probable that different hormones and neuro-chemicals are released that suppress pain, overcome addictions, strengthen willpower and enhance creativity.
This is a musical experience is not only for our health and vitality. The vibrational resonance of the “inner sound massage” with crystal bowls can also open us to access to a field of unlimited possibly within our Self.
