The future of therapy is sound.
That’s right, treatments for depression and anxiety may no longer require sitting across from a therapist. It may be as simple as putting on a pair of headphones and closing your eyes.
That may seem hard to believe, but sound therapy is quickly taking the world by storm in addressing physiological and mental health. Today you’ll learn what advantages there are to sound therapy, and how you can make use of it in your daily life.
What Is Sound Therapy?
Sound therapy can take many forms.
It can be a guided meditative practice with live instruments. It may involve dancing. It might be a “sound bath” where you are immersed in healing sounds for a period.
Sound therapy can treat a range of issues, including severe ones such as dementia. You can use it in treating hearing loss and tinnitus. For those who aren’t benefiting enough from their hearing loss medications and remedies, this might be an excellent alternative.
Best of all, sound therapy doesn’t require you to go to a professional session. You can use an app from the comfort of your home. After a long, hard day at work, nothing is better than lying down on the couch with your Bluetooth headphones and getting some music therapy.
How Does it Work?
The benefits of music on the brain are well understood. Rhythm and dance are things that are programmed deep into our human consciousness. Studies have suggested that our heartbeat syncs with the music we’re listening to.
You don’t need to look far to see the benefits. Think of the effect your favorite song has on you after a bad day. Generally speaking, it soothes you, mitigates your anxiety, and provides an endorphin release.
Music can help calm you during stressful moments in your life. It can bring back good memories. And it can carry you away to another world for a brief moment and give you new perspectives.
Sound therapy works to help with a wide range of medical conditions:
Sound therapy does wonders even for those without any officially diagnosed conditions or serious symptoms.
Tinnitus and Hearing Loss
Hearing loss therapy may retrain the brain to recognize lost frequencies. Although the incessant ringing of tinnitus cannot be fully addressed, sound therapy may give you some relief from it.
Threshold sound conditioning can help strengthen the frequencies you’ve lost and it may help soften the harsh ringing of tinnitus. With consistent usage, we hope you’ll be able to ignore those ringing sounds to the point where you can forget you even have it.
