Facts and Questions
How does sound therapy work?
Sound can help facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by entrainment; synchronizing fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency to which the brainwave can attune. By using particular combinations of rhythms and frequencies, it is possible to shift our normal beta state (alert, concentrating, reacting) to alpha (creative, relaxed), and even theta (meditative state) and delta (deep sleep; where restoring and healing can occur). Using sound as therapy can provide results for a variety of issues including: sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress management, PTSD, pain management.
Would a Sound concert help me sleep?
Most people report of a “good night’s sleep” after a Sound session which often extends into a calm, centered feeling the next day. The more you can bring relaxation into your life the better you will be able to sleep and bring a new, overall calm to your life.
What do I wear/bring to a Sound session or Concert?
Please dress comfortably. Usually mats and blankets are provided for you to lay on but feel free to bring a small blanket, eye pillow or anything that will help you to feel comfortable.
I am not comfortable lying on the floor, can I still attend?
Lying on the floor is one way to experience a Sound event. If this is not possible, you are also welcome to sit on a cushion or chair.
How will I feel after a Sound Concert?
Most people feel deeply relaxed, so it’s a good idea to plan an early night, have a light meal and drink lots of water.
Can children come to a Sound Concert?
Children of all ages are welcome. Many have enjoyed the experience. For most children being quiet and still for any length of time is difficult and movement, fidgeting or talking is disruptive to other participants. You know your child best.
