You may have seen one of the many sound healing centers that have been popping up all over the place over the last several years. However, the use of sound for the purpose of healing and soothing has been going on for thousands of years.
In fact, the first musical instruments have been dated as far back as 43,000 years ago. There’s evidence of sound being used for therapeutic purposes in Egyptian temples.
Hippocrates was playing music for psychiatric patients as early as 400 B.C. Plato stated that music could influence the emotions and character of a person. Aristotle believed that music could purify the emotions.
The use of sound is now believed to be able to do much more than just benefit the emotional state of a person. There are real physical and psychological benefits to be gained from sound healing.
