Part 1/5 – Please Pass the Calm – Sound Therapy For Holiday Stress Relief

Written by Leah Skurdal

Ah! The holiday season is here – when we try to cram extra food, treats, baking, gifts, relatives, friends, parties, and performances into the last six weeks of the year – or we feel their absence. The holiday season can feel joyful and magical for some while stirring up tension, stressful expectations, and unresolved emotions for others.

In our family, I also added two kid birthdays into the middle of the six-week-end-of-the-year-marathon. By New Year’s Eve, I was done with the holiday fa-la-la and went to bed early.

How do you manage the stress of the busy, joy-filled, sometimes chaotic, or sometimes lonely holiday season? What tools, techniques, and resources do you use to calm your nervous system and increase your spiritual well-being to enjoy the season?

One of the tools that help many people find stress relief during the holiday season is sound therapy.

An article in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine cited a study on the effect of Tibetan singing bowl sound healing on stress reduction. After experiencing sound meditation during the study, “participants reported significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood” as well as increased feelings of spiritual well-being. The study concluded that Tibetan singing bowl meditation may offer a method “to induce the relaxation response, reduce stress, and potentially stress-related disease in the body.”

Great news for non-meditators! The study found the greatest benefit from sound healing occurred for people without any prior experience of singing bowl meditations. The 40–59-year-old age group, in particular, experienced a significant reduction in physical pain and tension after experiencing the Tibetan singing bowl and crystal bowl sound healing.

Sound healing offers one simple strategy for coping with stress
so you can find more peace and joy this holiday season.

At the Wellness Universe, we are thrilled to showcase our sound healing expert Sharon Carne, Director of Training and Program Development, at the Sound Wellness Institute.

Sharon explains,

Sound Wellness is a holistic modality that uses techniques based on sound and music to bring the body, mind, emotions, and spirit back into harmony. It is from this place of harmony that healing takes place.
