Sound is vibration and the vibration touches us at a cellular level, so we can understand that we don't perceive sound only with the ears, but our body.
Construction, demolition and the day and night movements of a vibrant city can make people feel they are being bombarded with stress-filled noise. The World Health Organisation has recently provided stronger evidence of the metabolic and cardiovascular effects of noise, such as increased blood pressure and hypertension.
Re-tuning our ears to listen to this noise as pure sounds, untainted by the associations we have come to put on them, helps to free us from the limitations of our mind and open us up to hear our surroundings as a symphony of collective vibrations and reduces our stress levels in the process.
Stress reduction is one of the most important results of receiving sound therapy. Stress is the underlying cause of many physical conditions and it melts away with ease when you are bathed in a sea of sound healing vibrations.
