Introduction to Sound Healing for Health Professionals
Professional training with CE credits
Healing with sound – a wide-ranging description of the use of drums, tuning forks, singing bowls and often the voice – is a growing phenomenon in the world of alternative healing.
It’s been the topic of articles in The New York Times, and greater numbers of trauma therapists, like physician Bruce Perry, are noting the importance of rhythm to calm the anxious and traumatized brain.
“The only way to move from these super-high anxiety states, to calmer more cognitive states, is rhythm,” he says. “Patterned, repetitive rhythmic activity: walking, running, dancing, singing, repetitive meditative breathing – you use brain stem-related somatosensory networks which make your brain accessible to relational (limbic brain) reward and cortical thinking.
Sound therapy is different from music therapy.
In this workshop, co-led by Lana Ryder, LMT, Reiki teacher, musician and sound healer, and Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will demonstrate how mental health professionals and other health and helping professionals and educators may integrate simple techniques using sound into their sessions to promote calm and healing while also using sound as part of their personal self-care practice.
In addition to didactic information about the history of sound healing and how sound and vibration can be used to calm the nervous system and the body, participants will have the opportunity to have a hands-on experiences to feel the brain-shifting effects of sound with the use of tuning forks, drums, gongs, singing bowls and the voice.
