In the online medical dictionary sound therapy is defined as:
The use of sound as a therapeutic modality, which is linked to the release of hormones and other factors, including the so-called harmonic factor. Sound therapy is said to affect physiologic parameters, including breathing and heart rate, blood pressure and neuromuscular tone, and it’s allegedly useful in Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, hospice environments for the terminally ill, childbirth, dentistry, and psychotherapy.
Sound healing is one of the oldest forms of healing known to mankind and has been used the world over to evoke, attune, and transform consciousness. Sound produces powerful vibrations and as we are vibrational beings by nature our very structure is transformed by its movement.
Every organ bone and cell in our body has a resonant frequency and when our bodies feel sluggish, uninspired, or unhealthy, sound can reset and retune subtle energy fields.
As sound travels 4 times more efficient through water than through air, our bodies are 70% water making us extremely susceptible to the healing effects of sound. Just like plants, when we are healthy there is symmetry and balance seen in the crystallised water cells that make up the tissues and organs in our bodies.
Your hours treatment involves you lying on comfy treatment bed (heated if you would like) you are fully clothes and all you need to do is shut our eyes and drift away…bliss
At Complete Health Clinic we use Alchemy Crystal singing bowls which are made up of the purest Quartz Crystal. Both pure tones and harmonic overtones that are created are not only heard but felt as vibrations throughout your body, affecting your chakras, promoting healing, shifting brain waves, rebalancing you and enhancing deep relaxation and creativity.

Sound Healing with Reiki
Reiki is a gentle, yet powerful form of healing and the benefits are felt on all levels. As a natural healing system, it can benefit everyone, from young babies to adults and is a safe, non-invasive treatment. It can be used alongside other complementary therapies or conventional medicine. Reiki can be given on a treatment couch or sitting in a chair, therefore making it an easy treatment to receive.
Reiki helps the body to reach an inner state of harmony, physically, mentally and spiritually. As well as helping many physical ailments, it can also promote the changing of any negative mental habits, turning these into more positive and productive thought patterns. Once we begin to think more positively, our lives and our health become more positive too.
Reiki and Stress Reduction
Treatments with Reiki energy reduce stress within the body, thereby inducing a state of relaxation. The body can then be allowed to begin the healing process. While stress is not considered an illness, most people have experienced it. When stress is being felt for a prolonged period of time, then the body can begin to be affected both physically and mentally, as it weakens the immune system. In the UK alone, the Health & Safety Executive report that an estimated half-million people experience stress at a level that makes them ill and unable to work. In addition, to this, hundreds of thousands of people are now taking anti-depressants to allow them to cope with life. However, Reiki can and does help with stress reduction, which has the added benefit of boosting the immune system.
What are the benefits of Reiki?
The following is from the UK Reiki Federation website
“Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
Benefits reported by clients and patients of our Practitioner members include deep relaxation, promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels.
Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices, such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, any may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges.
Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, in any situation.
Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.
Reiki can enhance everyday living and regular sessions may help to promote the development of a healthier, more resourceful state of being.
Note: Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly.”
