Energy Sonology

Here is a discipline that has not stopped surprising us! However, there are indeed alternative and holistic practices with crystal bowls: The Sounds of a singing crystal bowl invite themselves into eclectic areas of human life. We find them on the wire of our discordant lives, in Health establishments, or even at the service of young people presenting disorders of the autistic sphere… etc.

The energetic peculiarity of their multidirectional spiral Sounds envelops the entire body. They raise the vibrational rate and awaken to states of being calm and centered. There is no need to “play” intensity at all costs. Because the power and the delicacy of their vibratory plays deserve a dance oscillating between subtlety and lightness. The voice can be associated with it in tune with ease. It amplifies the play of the harmonics created. Energy sonology now has one of its most splendid manifestations, CVP, a therapeutic vocal technique.

The sound heals

Crystal bowls harmonize emotional states and deeply relax the body & mind! Indeed, sound bowls have a long tradition in eastern countries (Tibet, India …). They connect Sound, Spirituality and Medicine. According to different oriental spiritualities the Sound is at the origin of creation. Here, Sound and Music are sacred.

The singing crystal bowl allows the brain to quickly switch to alpha mode. When the brain waves are in alpha mode, the nervous system “relaxes”. This dissolves tension and strengthens the immune system.
Indeed, Sonology is based on the properties of sound and on the phenomenon of resonance of the body. Note that the sound frequencies of the bowls promote a state of deep relaxation. They slow breathing and heart rate as well as blood pressure. This gives access to a deep “letting go“, both physical and mental & psychic. Faced with the hectic rhythms of modern life, they have become quality instruments for well-being essential to health. The sound heals!

In Sonotherapy using crystal bowls, the observation is that we can efficiently support any session for therapeutic purposes. The goals are diverse, such as relieving stress and anxiety. Or some problems with concentration and sleep. Sonotherapy has also proven itself in a wake-up coma service, in psychiatry and in adolescents who are not very accessible to classical relaxation or sophrology for example. The simple act of appeasing a galloping mind, of deep relaxation and of entering the multidirectional spiral of the Sounds of crystal bowls allows us to contact in itself the most intimate of our being.
These so unique Sounds mobilize the capacity for self-healing and release creative energies. In receptive people, they open up a feeling of being linked to a “big whole”, in a timeless perception, which facilitates the harmonization of the body, emotions and thoughts while providing overall well-being.

Singing bowls used with people losing their autonomy:

The sound instruments used as therapeutic mediators serve to encourage the elderly to break out of isolation. A deleterious isolation in which they are sometimes locked. By offering residents activities with these sounds, retirement homes create group dynamics and thus facilitate social ties.
In addition, the crystal bowls incite curiosity. Indeed, their sonic spirals are dynamic. Not to mention that the sensory impressions they generate are multifaceted and amaze people. Emotions are then invited to express themselves … Projects that include this type of mediator are centered on the person and the group. They take into account the importance of the mediator object. But also each opening on the relation, the sensoriality or even the memory. Indeed, during sessions with crystal bowls, as in Music Therapy, all sensory and emotional aspects are called upon. These spaces arouse desire. They are also a source of pleasure.

For people living with a cognitive or neurodegenerative disorder, it is notable that Sounds have beneficial and lasting effects. Of course, without stopping the pathological process. Hervé Platel is Professor of Neuropsychology, Inserm Unit 1077, at the University of Caen. He was one of the first to identify the brain networks involved in the perception and memorization of sounds and music. Particularly on Alzheimer’s patients: “Music easily catches our attention: as soon as there is music in the environment, the brain synchronizes very naturally. The ways in which music enters the brain are much more complex than those of speech, for example, and involve different brain regions: music stimulates, relaxes, calms pain, but also has the capacity to increase plasticity. of the brain and cause changes in synaptic connections.

The singing crystal bowls used with young people living with an autistic disorder:

Some sound therapy practitioners already use crystal bowls. For example, with children or adults living with these disorders and they find that “The practice of one session per week has enabled parents to note the reduction in certain violent acts, anxiety attacks”.
A reduction in treatment such as Risperdal® (2nd generation neuroleptic-antipsychotic) or treatment for sleep is possible in certain cases. “(September 2, 2015 -SON’HARMONIA)

Some studies show that Sound and Music Therapy may help children with autism. This by helping them to improve certain skills. For example, social interaction, verbal communication and socio-emotional reciprocity.
These therapeutic mediators could also help improve non-verbal communication skills in the therapeutic context. (Geretsegger M, Elefant C, Mössler KA, Gold C, Main Journal Group Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems Group).

An encouraging prospect! For therapists as for parents who can also live a facilitated bond with their child.

Today there are areas of accompaniment where singing crystal bowls find a special place:

For example, in the accompaniment of great passages of life. but also existential parentheses or simply daily practices (meditation, relaxation, prayers … etc). Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor had included them in the clinical path of his patients living with cancer (Healing Sounds, edition of the Eagle). Besides, the results he had achieved were impressive.

Sound, voice and music are powerful vectors of well-being. They can be used in restoring body balance, emotional states and promoting the awakening of the mind. To go further, go HERE: an article giving keys to care with a crystal bowl!
