" You can look at disease as a form of disharmony. And there's no organ system in the body that's not affected by sound and music and vibration." ~Mitchell Gaynor, M.D.
our float tank at the calm center has transducers built into it. a feature that was an extra that we felt strongly about and i can confirm the benefits from personal use. transducers are like speakers. they arent speakers exactly or one could say speakers are a type of transducer but I digress, transducers dont actually produce "sound" like a speakr but vibration. the vibration travels through the water and the ears pick up as sound. but in addition to this the cells of the body feel the vibration and are affected by it. water is a superior conductor of vibration as sound. when we talk about sound healing, modern and ancient, we are really talking about vibration healing or sometimes called vibroacoustic healing. what is special about a gong bath? a drum circle? a live symphony? it is not just electricity through a speaker. it is actual vibration that is being picked up by the body. a wonderful article on this can be found here,
"The human body is made up of electronic vibrations, with each atom and element of the body, each organ and organism, having its electronic unit of vibration necessary for the sustenance of, and equilibrium in, that particular organism. Each unit, then, being a cell or a unit of life in itself has the capacity of reproducing itself by the first law as is known of reproduction-division. When a force in any organ or element of the body becomes deficient in its ability to reproduce that equilibrium necessary for the sustenance of physical existence and its reproduction becomes deficient in electronic energy. This may come by injury or by disease, received by external forces. It may come from internal forces through lack of eliminations produced in the system or by other agencies to meet its requirements in the body." ~Edgar Cayce
we have yet to finalize our schedule for april but we hope to be able to have a gong bath with sound healers jeff and kris gregory of pyramid wellness center where they offer personal sessions with gongs, crystal bowls & pyramids, tuning forks and many other wonderful metaphysical tools.
in addition to that it is possible to setup your own personal sound healing treatment along with your float. we have many different options to discuss. we find using tones only of specific frequencies for health and healing be it physical, mental, emotional or a combination provide the greatest experience without being music which can be distracting. so it is possible to have sensory deprivation with vibroacoustic healing at the same time! a wonderful experience. even at very low levels, nearly imperceptible the vibration is still picked up by the cells of the body. it is a wonderful experience on top of an already wonderful experience.
"To enter into the initiation of sound, of vibration and mindfulness, is to take a giant step toward consciously knowing the soul. There are hundreds of accurate models for this great journey inward. Each requires belief and discipline as well as the will to allow the inner and outer worlds to relate. Listening, learning, study, and practice are important tools. But we need the courage to enter into ourselves with the great respect and mystery that combines the faith of a child, the abandon of a mystic, and the true wisdom of an old shaman." ~Don G. Campbell
