Therapeutic Frequencies with Heidi Rohm

Hey Skinny readers, it’s Heidi with International Soul Wellness right here! I need to share my story of how I discovered sound therapeutic, what all of the craze is about, and my journey of turning a ardour into one thing impactful to provide again and create area for therapeutic.

I grew up in Seattle and at the moment dwell in East Austin, TX. My nomadic soul has taken me everywhere in the world and I’ve lived in additional than 20 cities the previous 20 years. Whereas I’ve established some roots right here in Austin, I’m all the time on the lookout for my subsequent journey journey. My closest mates have all the time (lovingly) teased me about my twin character – company by day and ‘woowoo yogi’ by evening (and weekends).

“Your Profession is what you’re paid for, your calling is what you’re made for.”
-S. Harvey.

Working as a Advertising and marketing Director in Company America the final twenty years, I discovered a standard thread amongst myself, colleagues, mates, household, the yoga group, and even the occasional stranger… individuals search and profit from taking time to reconnect with their thoughts, physique, spirit and provides again to their general well being, however most don’t know how precisely to do that effectively and successfully in an exhausting, worrying, and over stimulated world. Virtually everybody finds it difficult to put aside time to meditate, and admittedly don’t know how to go about it. What number of occasions have you ever heard somebody say, “I’m actually good at meditating”?

I’ve all the time sought methods to decrease my very own stress, floor and reconnect and keep wholesome whereas dwelling a busy way of life. Over time, I’ve had constructive experiences with various holistic therapeutic cures. Sitting at a desk 8+ hours a day, I craved bodily motion, so I practiced yoga, ran, kick boxed, and so forth. What I struggled with, was establishing a (psychological) meditation apply to clear my thoughts and disconnect from each day stressors. Whereas dwelling in New York, I went by means of a separation and divorce, so I, like many others throughout arduous occasions, determined to show inward and mirror. For me, this meant deepening my yoga apply.

In 2012, I accomplished my 200 Hour Yoga Instructor Coaching with YogaWorks in New York Metropolis, which centered on posture alignment and connecting breath to motion. I went on to finish my 500 Hour Yoga Instructor Coaching just a few years later whereas dwelling in Los Angeles with Noah Maze and Rocky Heron (YogaMaze), the place I discovered quite a lot of superior instructing strategies and philosophies.

These yoga trainings helped me higher learn physique sorts, develop breathwork methods, consider posture and alignment, channel my instinct and empathic character, and most significantly – faucet into the vitality of a room, that are all instruments that I exploit throughout sound baths.

My love for music led me to attempt a sound bathtub for the primary time in 2017 whereas dwelling in L.A. In the course of the gong portion of the sound bathtub, (whereas this may occasionally sound somewhat on the market to some individuals), I had my first ‘out of physique’ expertise the place I used to be floating above my physique trying down, and naturally, I used to be intrigued and wished to study extra.

How and why did this occur? I’ve since discovered there are quite a few scientific explanations for what individuals name ‘out of physique experiences’ past aligning your vitality facilities (chakras). The Atlantic printed an article titled “Why Folks Have Out-of-Physique Experiences” linking stimulation of the interior ear and mind with out-of-body experiences. Sound vibrations can have all kinds of impacts on the emotional and bodily physique. I used to be fully hooked and went on to finish my 100 Hour Sound Therapeutic coaching in Los Angeles with Lauren Rose (Peace Love Soundology), learning the historical past and science of sound therapeutic, taking part in methods, and strategies for channeling vitality.

 Sound Baths, the 1000+ 12 months-Outdated Wellness Craze.

Though Sound Therapeutic has been round for hundreds of years throughout the globe, sound baths have not too long ago turn out to be a rising wellness development within the States. Religious ceremonies and therapeutic modalities utilizing sound date again 1000’s of years amongst Tibetan monks, Australian Aborigines, the Greeks, indigenous African tribes, simply to call just a few. I imagine popping out of the pandemic with a heightened curiosity in self-reflection and self-preservation, individuals are trying to find new other ways to floor themselves, discover head area, and join with their thoughts, physique, and spirit. I’m going to share just a few enjoyable info I’ve gathered alongside my journey because it pertains to the affect of sound therapeutic on the thoughts and physique.

♡ Total Advantages of Sound Therapeutic

Let’s begin with the fundamentals – the elemental legislation of physics: we’re all vibrating beings. We’re made up of at the least 70% water, making our our bodies wonderful conductors of vitality and vibration. Each cell in our our bodies dwell in a dynamic rhythmic sample: our blood, our organs… they’re all pulsating to their very own rhythm.  Once we are sick, present indicators of illness, really feel burdened, or just really feel ‘off’ emotionally or bodily, and so forth., our our bodies are possible vibrating out of their wholesome homeostasis, making us really feel out of stability. When listening to therapeutic vibrations, for instance sounds of nature (gongs, sonic wave drums, component chimes), our our bodies intuitively reply by harmonizing with these vibrations and shift states to be in alignment with that of nature, thus grounding the cells of our physique, bringing us again into wholesome stability. Sound can shift frequencies from low vitality (guilt, concern) to greater vibrations (love, pleasure).

What are probably the most generally recognized potential advantages of sound baths? When achieved with the proper intention, approach, and high-quality devices, sound baths may also help:

+ decrease stress ranges

+ deepen rest

+ scale back anxiousness and melancholy

+ enhance sleep

+ enhance blood movement and focus

+ increase moods/confidence

+ decrease ldl cholesterol and blood stress

♡ What Devices I Use and Why:

+ Gongs: All of us have a tough time ‘getting out of our heads,’ our brains are a 3-pound self-contained universe that course of over 70,000 ideas every day. The facility of gong vibrations may also help carry you right into a meditative (theta) brainwave state in as little as 60-90 seconds. I consider this course of as eradicating the veils of our personal ideas to clear and open our thoughts and our bodies as much as receiving uninterrupted therapeutic vitality. Just like how hypnosis works to create new wholesome thought patterns throughout a relaxed state, gongs have an identical energy if the healer and the recipient are open to the probabilities. Being on this relaxed state can scale back stress, take away emotional blockages, and align the chakras. In lots of circumstances, it may well even result in altered state of consciousness. I exploit a mixture of Paiste Planetary (Chiron & Venus) Gongs, and Limitless Darkish Star Gong.

+ Tuning Forks: Tuning forks have a lot potential to heal and there are a selection of strategies during which they’re used. Tuning forks align with notes that correspond to our chakras, serving to to unblock and transfer vitality within the physique. For instance, 528 Hz frequency is assumed by some genetic engineers to restore DNA harm. As well as it brings peace, calm, and concord by serving to to revive equilibrium within the physique and may also help with general chakra balancing, particularly within the photo voltaic plexus (3rd or naval chakra) which is attributed to self-confidence and vanity.

Dr. John Beaulieu (ND, PHD composer, Psychological well being Counselor and Naturopathic Physician) has researched the biochemical impact of tuning forks on the nervous system. Vibrations transferred to neuronal, endothelial, and immune cells by means of tuning forks can stimulate nitric oxide, setting off a cascade of physiological impacts on our well being, well-being, frame of mind, and consciousness. Impacts happen on the molecular degree. I exploit a mixture of the weighted Otto 128 tuning fork and BioSonic tunic fork set in my periods.

+ Singing Bowls: Singing bowls are every tuned to a special observe, triggering a selected chakra or mixture of chakras. They’ll considerably scale back stress, stimulate the immune system, calm overactive adrenals, decrease blood stress, and enhance psychological and emotional readability. I used to be skilled on and solely use Crystal Tones singing bowls, that are fabricated from the very best (99.992%) quartz crystal and most interesting gem stones and valuable metals resembling 24 karat gold, silver, and platinum, making the audible sound extremely clear and resonant. “The high-grade quartz crystals in each bowl may also help amplify, focus, switch and transmute vitality, remodeling not solely the bones and tissues, however penetrating the sub-atomic construction of the cell, creating the identical advantages to situations of the physique as some pharmaceuticals.” Tryshe Dhevney,

Along with these devices, I additionally use sonic wave drums, component chimes, crystal tuning and extra, relying on the vitality within the room.

♡ What to anticipate throughout a Sound Bathtub?

If in case you have by no means had a sound bathtub, the excellent news is that no expertise is required! Go in with an open thoughts and each sound bathtub can set off a special (very private) expertise and response, relying on what you want (consciously and subconsciously) that day.

At a extra sensible degree, you’ll possible lie down in a snug place on a yoga mat with a blanket and pillow. Sometimes group sound baths are 30-60 minutes lengthy. Skilled sound healers often begin with a respiration train to carry you into the current second and assist you start to loosen up. Many occasions, you’ll be requested to set an intention for your self or create a easy mantra that you simply revisit throughout the bathtub once you discover your thoughts wandering.

Sound baths can incorporate quite a lot of devices relying on what that exact healer has been skilled in (gongs, sound bowls, chimes, drums). Devices and combos of sounds, together with setting particular intentions, permit the vitality vibrations to be channeled and movement on to the recipients. All that you must do is sit again, loosen up, and breathe! I welcome anybody desirous about giving again to their general wellbeing to attempt a sound bathtub. And like yoga instructors, chances are you’ll be drawn to a selected sound healer vs. others, so check out just a few!
