Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls are made from over 99.9 percent pure quartz crystal, a naturally occurring element. The crystal is placed in a mold and heated to 4000 degrees. Because our bodies are also composed of a crystalline structure, using Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls for healing and meditation allows us to respond more quickly and favorably to the sound as therapy. This is why crystals are a key element in many different holistic medicine healing practices.
Science has begun to successfully prove that body functions can be altered by use of sound waves give us strong evidence supporting the healing powers of these breathtaking Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls. In fact, there are doctors currently using Tibetan Singing Bowls and Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls for sound and music therapy to help terminally ill patients deal with pain.
The sound of the bowls can stimulate deep into the body tissues which allows doctors to promote healing from within. The calming musical tones help to heal by reinstating the natural sense of balance and harmony. When the body is suffering from a physical ailment, for example a failing kidney, the natural resonant frequency of sound that is produced by the kidney is reduced, creating an imbalance. With crystal bowl and Tibetan singing bowls, sounding the tone of the bowls can restore an ailing organ by projecting the sound into the body which helps to return the organ to a healthy resonant frequency. While there have been studies done on this type of sound healing, it is still in the early stages and is not recommended as a full health care regime. It is important that you still visit your doctor for treatment if you suspect any sort of health problem.
Harmonizing the Left & Right Hemispheres of the Brain
For many adults, the left hemisphere of their brain is the more dominant of the two sides. The left hemisphere tends to deal with more logical thinking including mathematics and analysis, as well as being home to the speech center of the brain. While the right half of our brain is more creative based; dealing with feelings, visual perceptions, music, dreams and spirituality. In western cultures the right brain tends to be less valued compared to the thought processes of the left side. Interestingly enough however, western societies allow children to use their creative sides of their brain, and in fact even encourage right brain thinking up until the age of about 5 years-old. However as one gets older society tends to better reward those who think logically with their left brain. Coincidently, adults have a hard time using the right half of their brain, producing creativity blocks and repressing feelings and emotions.
One of the many healing qualities of singing bowls is trying to bring balance and synchronization back to the hemispheres of the brain. In perfect situations both of the brain hemispheres are in harmony, however in the busy work weeks that so many people endure day in and day out, it becomes easier for our brain to fall out of balance. Sound healing with singing bowls aspires to stimulate the underdeveloped right side of the brain so that balance may be restored.
In order to better understand the brain, it is important to realize the two halves of the brain often independently of each other both produce brain waves, which are all associated with different states of consciousness.
