Singing bowl therapy dates back to the 12th century and has been used for meditation and rituals in Tibetan culture. Metal bowls produce a deep, penetrating sound that’s used to relax and restore the mind. A 2016 study found that singing bowl meditation reduced stress, anger, depression and fatigue. All of these things are known to impact our physical health in lowering the risk for disease, improve our emotional and mental well being.
The Science of Sound Healing
When sound waves reach our ears, they are converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes sound. Once sound waves reach our brains, they trigger responses in our bodies. This process alters our emotions, releases hormones and chemicals that affect both our bodies and our moods, and triggers certain impulses (for example, singing and dancing).
Research has shown that the sound waves floods our brains with dopamine — the happy chemical. It also releases Oxycontin, a natural painkiller and hormone that allows us to bond with and trust people.
