Otherwise known as “vibrational healing”, “sound healing”, or “sound healing therapy”, sound therapy uses healing soundwaves to promote relaxation and pain relief. Passages Malibu uses many different sound healing therapy techniques to ease drug and alcohol-related cravings, anxiety, and depression, and to help resolve trauma.

How Does Sound Therapy Work?

Sound healing therapy was derived from a complex set of theories suggesting healing soundwaves, when broadcast at the right frequency, could mend the mind, body and spirit on a cellular level. Healing soundwaves are thought to deeply resonate within the body and may perhaps even influence brainwaves.

Science has already proven certain sounds can trigger different chemical reactions within the brain. Therefore, playing the correct sound-healing frequencies can cause the brain to release hormones such as serotonin and dopamine. Healing soundwaves can be used independently or to complement other holistic addiction treatment services (during a therapeutic massage or a meditation session, for example).

Sound-healing frequencies can be reached through instruments, electronic programs and even by the trained voice of a certified sound therapist. Sound-healing instruments are often borrowed from other cultures and can include singing bowls, digeridoos, Native American drums, special gongs and other soothing frequencies for a deeply spiritual experience.

In modern luxury rehab treatment centers, computer programs can broadcast healing soundwaves at various frequencies to encourage relaxation, security and comfort. For example, sound-healing computer programs can emulate the same frequency we hear while still inside the womb. They can also play the same frequency as cats purring, which has been scientifically proven to assist with healing.

How Sound Therapy Differs from Music Therapy

Although sound therapy can involve instruments, it is a holistic method that is separate from traditional music therapy. Whereas music therapy involves playing different songs and instruments to influence mood and perception, sound therapy primarily focuses on a single note for a long period of time so as to obtain real vibrational healing. The guiding principles of sound therapy rely on rhythm, harmonics and resonance to create a state of mind that is most beneficial for overcoming drug and alcohol addiction.
