Sound has been used as support for health and wellness since prehistoric times. No tribe or clan was complete without its healer and spiritual leader and they used sound, rattles, drums, bull-roarers, whistles, flutes and chanting, to name a few, in their rituals and to enhance their use of herbs and the medical knowledge of the time. When metal working became known then singing bowls, gongs and later tubular bells were added to their selection of healing sound instruments.
In ancient Greece the great scientist and philosopher Pythagoras stretched a single string across a board with a movable bridge and, with this first monochord, defined the mathematical properties of the musical scale and harmonics that we use to this day. Each new development of technology opened new possibilities to create instruments leading to the incredibly sophisticated instruments we have today.
Then in the late 1970's a Swiss mathematician and musicologist set forth a sort of periodic table of healing frequencies. Hans Cousto, in his book "The Cosmic Octave" describes a system of defining healing frequencies, relating them to the vibrational rotational frequencies of our planets, solar system and galaxy. The math involved is very complex, new healing frequencies are still being discovered as we learn accurate mathematical discoveries about the movement of our universe. Measuring the vibrations and overtones that an instrument produces with great accuracy allows us today to design and build or to find sound instruments for very specific healing purposes.
Heaven of Sound™ offers exclusively CERTIFIED healing Tibetan singing bowls and gongs with Planetary or cosmic vibrations. These are the original 14 planetary frequencies, the 7 frequencies for the phases and movements of the Earth moon plus a great number of newer special healing frequencies including Chakra and Solfeggio vibrations. Some frequencies are so newly discovered that we know little about their effects on the body, mind or spirit.
We also custom design and build a variety of special ancient sound healing instruments such as monochords, monochord sound beds, KotaMos, Native American flutes, Shamanic drums and tubular bell chimes, that can be tuned to these cosmic harmonics. All our custom sound healing instruments are exclusively handmade in the USA (North Idaho).
If you want to learn more about these wonderful overtone instruments, Heaven of Sound™ holds several levels of seminars and workshops for the singing bowls, the gongs, tubular bells and the stringed instruments designed for your personal wellbeing and health. We also offer a diploma and certification sound healer programs for those who wish to become a professional Sound Meditation Coach to safely offer sound bath, immesions or meditations, to get certified as Sound Healing Practitioner to professionally offer sound massages for relaxation and wellness or to become Sound Healing Therapist, who want to use sound as a therapeutic tool/modality.
