We live in a world where the hustle and bustle of daily life can take its toll on our body, mind, and spirit. In times like these, it’s important for us to take a step back, relax and rejuvenate. If you’re looking for an effective way to de-stress, rebalance and rejuvenate yourself, sound therapy could be what you need.
And, if you’re in Hanoi, you have an incredible opportunity to experience the healing power of sound therapy through the Sound Therapy Performance: Vibration of the East hosted by Kanyanut Charoenchai , the master therapist of Smarana Hanoi Heritage hotel
Sound therapy is the practice of using sound to heal the body, mind, and spirit. It’s an ancient healing practice that has been used for centuries in many cultures around the world. According to experts, sound therapy works by using different tones and frequencies to balance the energy centers in the body, known as chakras. The vibrations and sounds create a calming effect on the body, mind, and spirit that can help reduce stress, anxiety, and tension.
Sound therapy works on the principle that everything in the universe is in a state of vibration. Each organ, bone, and tissue in the body has its own vibration, which collectively create your own unique vibration. Sometimes, our vibration can become imbalanced, leading to physical and emotional discomfort. Sound therapy helps balance these vibrations by using sound waves to harmonize the energy centers of the body.
The Sound Therapy Performance: Vibration of the East is an immersive sound experience that is designed to help you achieve a deep state of relaxation. This experience uses a variety of different musical instruments, including Himalayan singing bowls, gongs, and other percussion instruments. The vibrations and sounds produced by these instruments work together to create a powerful and healing energy that can help reduce stress, ease physical pain, and calm the mind.
During the experience, you’ll sit down in a comfortable position, while our therapists play the instruments. You’ll be bathed in the sounds, allowing them to wash over you, and penetrate into your body. Many people describe the sensation as a “massage for the soul.”
If you’re interested in incorporating sound therapy into your self-care routine, one of the most accessible ways to do so is through copper bowls. Copper bowls are a traditional Ayurvedic instrument used for their healing properties. When you play the bowls, they produce a deep, resonant vibration that can be felt throughout the body.
To practice sound therapy at home, you’ll need a copper bowl, a mallet, and a quiet, calming space. Simply strike the bowl with the mallet, and allow the vibrations to fill the room. Take a deep breath and focus on the sound as it reverberates through your entire being. Repeat this practice daily to benefit your mind, body, and spirit.
