Singing Bowl Healing Benefits

Engaging Tibetan singing bowls for healing is based on the notion that all illness is due to a disruption in the stream of energy in the body. When energy flow is disrupted, a particular organ or tissue stops vibrating at a healthy frequency, resulting in a weakness or type of illness.

Singing Bowls and Western Medicine

Mainstream scientists are endorsing what sages have expressed for millennia: meditating and pacifying the mind is the root of well-being and longevity.

The Sound Healing Network (founded in 2002 in the USA) says western medicine progressively recognizes sound healing as a therapeutic modality.

In fact, mainstream medical teaching institutions like Duke University and the University of North Carolina in the USA include programming that link body, mind and spirit to the treatment of cancer. Cancer prevention centers are employing sound as an integral part of the healing course for patients with astonishing outcomes.

The director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, has been utilizing sound, including Tibetan singing bowls (and chanting) in work with cancer patients for many years.

The medical director of the Deepak Chopra center in California, USA, Dr. David Simon, discovered that the sound from Tibetan singing bowls (as well as chanting) are chemically metabolized into “endogenous opiates,” that act on the body as internal painkillers and curative remedies.
