So what is sound therapy? In essence, it’s using sound to unlock our memories, be they on the muscular, cellular, or emotional level.
Every cell in the human body resonates with certain rhythmic cycles. Likewise, internal organs resonate with their own cycles and vibration frequencies. Thus, all our bodily systems react to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states.
Like many other sound therapists, Dr. Shmidt found that losing touch with natural rhythms and cycles of the Universe may result in the loss of necessary equilibrium in the body and ultimately cause a host of diseases. Sound therapy aims to restore harmony and balance to the body, bring about peace of mind and reconnect the patient with the natural cycles of the cosmos.
In practical terms, sound therapy uses certain musical instruments – from ancient harps, Tibetan bowls and bells, rattles, drums and gongs to the most modern of tuning forks – for a beneficial effect.
