History of Sound Therapy
Cymatics is a word coined by Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor, who in his spare time investigated the power of sound to create form. Jenny spent many hours observing the effects of sound upon matter. Many consider this work to be the seminal most important demonstration of the ability of sound to shape substance.
The word, Cymatics is Greek for waveform because sound travels as a wave. Throughout history, there have been people who have observed and investigated the unique ability of the vibrations of sound to effect and shape different substances. Click Here to Read More About Cymatics.

VibroAcoustic Therapy is coined by Olav Skille of Norway in the late 1980’s. Skille discovered how different frequencies can help reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleeping, mental clarity, and reduce pain without the use of chemicals. Its aim is to restore cellular energy lost over time; thus, improving a person’s overall health.
Sound healing travels further back in time to indigenous tribes such as the Aborigines, a tribal group from Australia. Aboriginal healers created sounds that repaired broken bones, muscle tears and stabilized mentally ill individuals into a state of calm to initiate recovery of ill tribal members.

What are solfeggio frequencies?
Solfeggio frequencies make up the ancient 6-tone scale thought to have been used in sacred music, including the beautiful and well known Gregorian Chants. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart spiritual blessings when sung in harmony. Each Solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony.

What are binaural beats?
Binaural beats are frequencies occur when two sound sources are applied separately, one to each ear. This beat frequency is not an actual sound, but only a frequency difference between the two actual sounds. This sound is “heard” within the brain itself; the binaural beat frequency is created by both brain hemispheres working simultaneously.
Benefits of listening to binaural beats
- reduced stress
- reduced anxiety
- increased focus
- increased concentration
- increased motivation
- increased confidence
- deeper meditation
- improved psychomotor performance and mood
The purpose for using binaural beats therapy may differ between people. Some people may need help decreasing their anxiety, while others may want to increase their concentration or deepen their level of meditation.
