Healing With The Tongue Drum

If you’ve been into one of our Nurcha Stores you would have seen the Tongue Drum sitting on one of our shelves.

This incredible instrument is not only cool to look at and fun to play but can also provide healing!

In the spirit of our Month Long Purification Sale, it makes sense to discuss healing and ways in which we can do so.

In order to Purify, we must first heal. 

Sound Healing is an incredible way to do this! In short, Sound Healing is a practice that uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) in order to relax your mind and body.

Healing with sound is believed to date back to ancient Greece when music was used in an attempt to cure mental disorders.

More recently, research has linked music to a number of health benefits, from boosting immune function and lowering stress levels to improving the health of premature babies.

How does it work? 

It works in a number of ways, but almost everything we experience in the universe is simply our perception of waves.

When sound waves reach our ears, they are converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes sound.

Once sound waves reach our brains, they trigger responses in our bodies.

This process alters our emotions, releases hormones, and triggers certain impulses.

Sound Healing can improve or cure many ailments including:

  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Learning disabilities
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Stress
  • PTSD
  • Pain

Sound Healing can also bring about:

  • Clarity and balance
  • Relaxation
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Improved sleep
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved creativity
  • Heightened awareness, both of the self and the environment

When should you use Sound Healing/Sound Healing Instruments? 

There’s no RIGHT place to play or use a Sound Healing Instrument. A few places/situation where you could implement the instrument could be Yoga practice, meditation, self-healing practice, dance and while in nature

This is just a short look into Sound Healing and the benefits and what they can bring to your life!
