Get in touch with your frequency to heal yourself.
Quartz crystal singing bowls have only been used therapeutically and musically in the last 3 decades. They were initially produced for the computer industry. A crystal singing bowl is made with pure quartz crystal but bowls can also be made from other crystals such as rose quartz, ruby, amethyst and moldavite. Precious metals like gold and platinum are also used to make singing bowls. Bowls are generally available from 6 inches up to 24 inches. Crystal singing bowls are available in every note of the scale.
Music and sound affects us physically, emotionally and spiritually. According to Dr Alfred Tomatis, sound is to the nervous system what food is to the physical body. Crystal singing bowls produce the most wondrous sounds, which also have a great therapeutic and healing potential. Sound is another form of vibrational healing or energy healing. When we are in a state of dis-ease, we are literally out of tune. Through resonance and entrainment we can put ourselves back into tune and out of a state of dis-ease. We are in the infancy of understanding how sound affects us and how it can be used to heal our dis-ease even though India’s scholars and religious leaders understood 4,000 years ago that we live in a state of vibration from which sound derives and on which sound has profound influences. (Joachim-Earnst Berendt, 1987) Under the Ayurvedic system, chakras not only have a corresponding colour, they also have a musical note. Crystal singing bowls can be used to clear and balance chakras.

From Ancient to Modern
We are in the infancy of understanding how sound affects us even though India’s scholars and religious leaders understood 4,000 years ago that we live in a state of vibration from which sound derives and on which sound has profound influences (Joachim-Earnst Berendt, 1987). Sound therapy or sound healing is a form of energy or vibrational healing that works on the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Every cell has a frequency at which it naturally vibrates. When something happens to alter the natural frequency or vibration of a group of cells they go into a state of dis-ease.
A crystal sound therapist usually works intuitively. Through resonance and entrainment the sounds of the bowls can retune the body to its normal vibration. Resonance is “the impact of one vibration on another” it literally means “to send again, to echo.” Entrainment is the process whereby the powerful rhythms of one object are projected upon a second object with a similar frequency, thereby causing that object to vibrate in resonance with the first object. Reported benefits of sound healing include deep relaxation, cellular level massage, clearing of blocked energy and thoughts, and opening up to a higher consciousness, greater peace and harmony.
