Singing bowls speak the language of the brain: Frequency. Busy Beta brain waves have low amplitude but travel quickly at a rate of 15-40 (Hertz) cycles per second. Our brain produces them when we are awake and alert, but they can also get out of control when we are highly stressed. Alpha brain waves travel more slowly at 8-12 (Hertz) cycles per second. They are widely known to be associated with meditation and altered states of consciousness. Still slower are the Theta at 3-8 Hertz and are produced during light sleep, dreams and daydreams. They can also occur with any repetitive activity such as knitting, painting a fence or any task that has become so automatic you can mentally disengage from it.
The Alpha-Theta border of the brain waves is of greatest importance to healing the body, mind and spirit and is also the goal of a singing bowl session. This narrow band of waves, known as the Schuman Resonance, produces waves that travel at 7-8 (Hertz) cycles per second. This is the precise frequency of the earth's electromagnetic field. When our brain's produce alpha-theta waves, not only are we in sync with the heartbeat of planet earth, but intelligence, creativity, higher achievement in any area and self-healing mechanisms of the body are activated. This is what is commonly referred to as "being in the zone." When our brains are in this state, the body is in a state of harmony and the central nervous system reduces input from the peripheral nervous system which allows it to expand it's range of functioning.
This expansion of functioning, yet unstudied by scientists, is where the body's self-healing mechanisms are activated. Though science has yet to delineate and define the actual mechanisms by which the body heals itself it is commonly understood and known from ancient medicine that the body can and does heal dis-ease when naturally supported to do so. Singing Bowl Therapy can effortlessly put you into this special brain wave state that supports your unique goal toward better health. Producing the Alpha-Theta brain wave state is the goal of Singing Bowl Therapy.
When the brain is exposed to the big circles of sound produced from the singing bowls, it will entrain or slow down to copy those waves, coming to a more relaxed state, effortlessly. People who hate to meditate will love how easily they can reach a meditative “no-mind” state by listening to singing bowls. This therapy is "just in time" to help us rebalance and begin to find our self-healing abilities again despite the pace of life today. Singing Bowl Therapy can help the individual to rebalance the brain wave patterns. This "re-education" of balanced brain wave function could be the most important step taken on a path of true balance back to health.
