Research Shows Effectiveness of Breathwork in Healing

Breath, most of us take it for granted, and yet as an influx of recent studies show, when we learn to control it, it can be the key not only to our physical wellbeing but to our spiritual transformation.

Breathwork is the conscious awareness and control of the breath through the practice of various techniques. While breath practices have been incorporated for millennia in many religious and spiritual traditions, they were largely forgotten with the rise of the modern western world. Today, however, we are in the midst of a massive resurgence in interest in these ancient practices.

Ben Stewart is a filmmaker who has been researching and practicing breathwork for years. “We always have breath, it’s free, and it’s relegated to the subconscious for the most part of our lives,” he said.

When we bring it back into the conscious realm, just the very act of bringing awareness to the breath is something that augments the experience of what the breath is doing to us, but also just becoming aware of your breath allows you to realize how much we actually hold our breath, how interrupted and inconsistent our breathing really is.”

Scientists Make New Discovery in Efficacy of Sound Healing

Scientists Make New Discovery in Efficacy of Sound Healing

Exciting new research and cutting-edge technologies show just how powerful sound, vibration, and frequency are in facilitating healing and expansion of consciousness.

Sound has been used for millennia as a powerful tool for physical healing and spiritual awakening. Today, new research into the science of sound, as well as emerging technologies to deliver personalized sound healing, has revolutionized the ancient practice.

Dr. Jeffrey Thompson is a renowned sound healer who has, over the last 40 years, pioneered a range of remarkable discoveries in the field. He explains how our connection to sound begins before birth.

“My total experience in the womb, and for all of us, is baptized by sound and vibration. My ears are hearing it, and the largest sensory organ of my body, my skin, is feeling it. That’s my whole experience for nine months. I think that’s why sound is the most powerful clinical tool; sound is bigger and more powerful than all of them,” Thompson said.

The mechanism by which sound brings about physical healing has been studied for decades and is continually being refined by new scientific findings.

“When a cell goes into a healing response, it increases its metabolism and its intake of food, expelling of waste, and rebuilding of tissue, so it’s raising its energy up. Sound waves can raise it to its highest possible potential that is way higher than the cell can do on its own, so we’ve just created a super-healing state,” he said.
