Sound can be used to improve both our health and our state of mind. If you’ve been seeking calm, consciousness, relaxation, or focus, sound therapy may be an alternative method that you may want to try.
Here’s how it works: When exposed to loud sounds such as loud music, or the steady, abundant noise of big cities, our hearing becomes gradually desensitized to hearing sound frequencies in the higher pitches. This results in a gradual decrease in your energy level, irritability to other sound around you, or unhealthy behaviors.
Sound therapy works by getting you to re-sensitize your ear’s ability to hear higher frequencies, thus opening your body and mind to behavior modification programs, improved states of consciousness, or relaxation.
