Sound Healing - Ancient Roots, Modern Science

science of sound healing Feb 23, 2021

In this video Jane Satchwell and Tony Nec from the Sound Healing Academy talk about the ancient roots and modern science of sound healing and sound therapy.

The video is a recording of an online talk and demonstration of sound healing for the Tamar Dowsers group in February 2021.

The practice of dowsing with rods has been around for a long time, and is widely used by water companies to locate new sources of water for boreholes, as it is such a reliable method.

Dowsers have found that many ancient sites, dating back thousands of years,  have powerful energy fields, and evidence suggests that they were the location of communal ceremonies and rituals, involving intentional sounds: chanting; drumming, flutes, rasps etc.

Below we list the main contents of the talk and show the times in the video associated with each part.

00.20 Jane outlines her own dowsing and archeology experience

 Jane recounts stories of her experiences with sounds and energy at sacred sites

  • 01.40 West Kennet Longbarrow, UK
  • 05.30 Montsegur, France

07.50 The roots of sound healing are ancient

08.27 Imagining the aural (sound) environment in ancient times

10.03 Effects of being on a 10-day silent retreat

12.30 Introduction to how the special energy at some ancient sacred sites heightens auditory perception and can stimulate transcendent states of consciousness

14.53 Introduction to ethnoarcheology and sound healing -  Ethnoarcheology aids archaeologists in reconstructing ancient lifeways by studying the traditions of existing societies in remote parts of our world

15.50 Instruments used in ancient sound ceremonies and rituals

17.02 Introduction to archeoacoutsics and sound healing -  Archaeoacoustics falls within the field of archeology and studies the acoustics at archaeological sites across different cultures using an approach that combines physics, anthropology, and architecture.

In this talk we cover the archeoacoutsic insights from:

  • caves with paintings on the rocks
  • chambers built from stone, including the Kings Chamber in the great pyramid at Giza, Egypt
  • stone circles, including Stonehenge, England

29.47 Evidence of 110Hz resonance at Newgrange, Ireland

30.28 Introduction to psychoacoustics and sound healing - Psychoacoustics is the branch of psycho-bio-physics involving the scientific study of sound perception and audiology—how humans perceive various sounds. More specifically, it is the branch of science studying the neurobiological and psychological responses associated with sound.

In this talk we cover:

  • the significance of the 110Hz frequency in stimulating altered states of consciousness
  • the driving of brainwave states by sounds
  • brain coherence

35.26 Introduction to balancing the autonomic nervous system with sounds - the autonomic nervous system is the part of the nervous system that supplies the internal organs, including the blood vessels, stomach, intestine, liver, kidneys, bladder, genitals, lungs, pupils, heart, and sweat, salivary, and digestive glands.
