Sound Healing Therapy -Tibetan Singing Bowls & Sacred Sound

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been using sound, including Tibetan Singing Bowls and Chanting in his work with cancer patients for many years. The medical director of the Deepak Chopra center in California, Dr. David Simon, found that the sound from Tibetan Singing Bowls  are chemically metabolized into ’endogenous opiates’, that act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.

Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing, chanting and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body and mind.
The sounds generated by Tibetan Singing Bowls are a type of energy medicine that promote healing from stress disorders, pain, depression, and most forms of dis-ease. Unique tones create the perfect state for deep meditation. 
The pure sonic waves that ring from Tibetan Singing Bowls wake up our ability to hear with more than our ears. We feel the sound from the Tibetan Singing Bowls as much as we take it in with our ears.
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” 
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine, the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York.

In fact, mainstream medical teaching facilities like Duke University and the University of North Carolina have added programs that link body, mind and spirit to the treatment of cancer. Cancer prevention centers are utilizing sound as a vital part of the healing process for patients with astounding results.

Djembe Drumming Lessons For Beginners

How can I benefit from Djembe Druming

Maybe you’ve been minding your own business, taking a leisurely stroll through a local park, and have happened upon a group of drummers seemingly pounding away in their own world of rhythm. Perhaps, if you were really lucky, you were invited to join the circle. It is these people, beating their djembes and maybe shaking their rattles, or tambourines that can inspire, intimidate or otherwise beckon the curious into their musical lair of healing and togetherness. What is it about drum circles and drumming that is so mysterious to the bystander, and how could a drum circle possibly benefit you, personally or professionally?

Drumming itself has numerous health, wellness and healing benefits. It has proven benefits for those with emotional disorders, chronic pain, stress and anxiety, hypertension, illnesses like cancer, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. It also helps improve both fine and gross motor skills, helps both sides of the brain connect and enhance neurological and cognitive functions, improve IQ and test scores, and can even boost immunity. Drumming can also burn around 270 calories per hour, making it a fun and interesting way to incorporate light cardio exercise into your routine.

Beyond the individual health and wellness benefits of drumming, a group of drummers provides its own benefits that enhance the healing properties of the drums and rhythms. Drumming with others can help establish community bonds and allow people to connect together on a level that does not require awkward small talk.

Teamwork and cooperative skills that are needed in businesses and corporations, schools or
other group organizations, are established naturally through drum circles. By participating in a drum circle, the community rhythms that are produced do not rely on only one other member, and each contributor has their own sound to add, creating a musical picture of the power of collaboration that can translate well into business environments.

With the known benefits of drumming and drum circles for people facing illness or physical limitations, and its benefits for teamwork, stress and anxiety reduction, picking up a drum could be the answer to what ails you. Even beyond the mental and physical help that drumming provides, it is also a great way to express yourself creatively. Drumming is fun, it provides fantastic health and wellness benefits and its physical, mental and emotional benefits in a group setting are even more remarkable. Grab a drum, a friend and start drumming to your own rhythms.
