Discover the best sound healing frequencies to support your health and wellness.

First, take a moment to pause and listen. From your fridge to your phone, sound is abundant within and around you. Every sound, thought, emotion, chakra, organ, and cell resonates at particular frequencies that impact you. Listening to coherent frequencies (like nature sounds) feels calming, while listening to incoherent frequencies (like the noise created by a jackhammer) feels stressful.

Support your well-being by learning how to use different sound healing frequencies. Sound baths and sound therapy sessions are enjoyable ways to experience the benefits of healing sounds and frequencies that support health, relaxation, harmony, flow, and peace. 

“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” — Nikola Tesla 

What are Sound Healing Frequencies?

Sound healing frequencies are vibrations of sound that help promote overall health and wellness. As Sound Healing Expert David Gibson writes in his bestselling book, The Complete Guide to Sound Healing, “Frequency includes pure tones and pitch. Stable, consistent vibrational frequencies — not chaotic vibrations — are the basis of all sound healing. And once you find the natural resonant frequency of any part of your body, you can use that frequency to bring harmony and optimal health to that area, organ, or system.” 

When you tune into healing frequencies, your body consistently hums in a coherent, smooth flow state.

Why Use Frequency For Healing?

Frequency gets to the root of symptoms and stress. Your body is an instrument and frequency plays a crucial role in the overall symphony of your soul. Just as frequency determines whether a radio station plays rock or classical music, the frequency of your cells determines your health and well-being. Coherent frequencies allow cells, organs, chakras, emotions, thoughts, and more to entrain and resonate with those good vibes, leading to harmony and flow. Sound healing frequencies are great for reducing stress, releasing emotions, improving sleep, enhancing creativity, and connecting with your higher self.

What Makes Frequencies Healing?

Through entrainment and resonance, frequencies can stimulate a relaxation response, creating a healing foundation. Sound Healing Expert Richard Gordon explains, “When two systems are oscillating at different frequencies, there’s an impelling force called resonance that causes the two to transfer energy from one to another. When two similarly tuned systems vibrate at different frequencies, there’s another aspect of this energy transfer called entrainment, which causes them to line up and to vibrate at the same frequency.” Your body, mind, and soul vibrate in harmony when you entrain with coherent frequencies.

What frequency is best for healing?

Ultimately, the best frequencies are the ones that feel right for you in the moment. In general, it’s best to use a combination of sound frequencies and practices. Feeling sad? Listen to 528 Hz Solfeggio frequency music that includes heart-string instruments, such as a guitar, ukulele, bass, banjo, cello, harp, or violin. Add color therapy by turning on a green light or wearing green as you listen. Experiment and see what feels best.

What’s my Home note or soul note?

Everyone has a Home note or healthy vibrational frequency. According to Sound Healing Expert David Gibson, your Home note is the frequency of your system at rest and your most crucial frequency for restoring flow, harmony, peace, and healing. Your Home note is the one that makes you feel at peace. Once identified, you can listen to songs in your key or use instruments like tuning forks tuned to that key. Then, when you feel “Home-sick,” you can bring yourself back into your resonant frequency. 

How can I get the best results with frequency? 

To achieve the best results, set an intention before listening to frequency music, attending a sound bath, or experiencing sound therapy. Next, breathe deeply. Where your breath doesn’t go, energy doesn’t flow. Lastly, tone a vowel as you listen to the music or repeat affirmations to focus your mind and build momentum. Have fun and experiment with what feels best.
