In ancient times music was the foundation of all the sciences. Education was begun with music with the persuasion that nothing could be expected of a man who was ignorant of music.
- Cicero.

Scientifically speaking, the universe is in a constant state of vibration, including sound. The spectrum of energy passes through our ears, creating a positive state of mind, body, and soul. It heals the frequencies of the human body, intensifying focus, concentration, enthusiasm, and more.

In ancient India, Egypt, and Greece, sound healing was a highly developed sacred science. People used chants and drumming to heal, which is a kind of wound healing. It helped the molecules in the human body head back to the right places through vibrations, removing energy blockages and restoring harmony.

Instruments like Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, bells, etc., are also known for palliating and rejuvenating life. They remove the energetic blockages from the consciousness, soothe and purify the surrounding.

Sound Healing for Wellness at Work

Sound---Healing

Workplace wellness has become a buzz and for good. There is a growing concern for a positive work culture towards a better work/life balance, and organizations today are genuinely investing in well-being activities for their employees.

Besides, the increasing uncertainty of work-life, fatiguing work hours and lack of work-life balance often leads to unwanted stress.

The shifting job culture, remote working, and pressure of deadlines have pushed more young professionals to struggle to maintain mental balance. Also, burnout or exhaustion syndrome is high among many employees who fail to reach their full potential because stress is a thorn in their success.

Whereas now, organizations discern the negative impact of stress on employee productivity, retention, and holistic wellness. However, it is important to help employees at individual levels deal with it in the long run.
