Monochord sound Treatment
The Monochord treatment gives you a unique experience of relaxation.
This extraordinary body instrument enables deep relaxation by covering you with a “sound blanket”.
The extraordinary resonances, it's individual melody and the rich overtones are stimulating and relaxing at the same time and have a therapeutic effect that is now applied in hospitals, in palliative care, with autism and other areas of our healthcare system.
Your nervous system gets a 'sound massage', stress is reduced and inner balance and contentment can be felt.
This monochord is tuned in 'the perfect fifth' also known as the Pythagorean interval. The perfect fifth monochord tuning stimulates your cells to produce nitric oxide.
A few of the physical benefits, when your cells are producing and releasing nitric oxide, are:
Relief from stress, more energy and stamina.
The autonomic nervous system is balanced, better clarity of mind, reduces depression.
Nitric oxide has anti-inflammatory properties and as such supports the immune system.
It’s optional to place the monochord on the body where the anatomically shaped instrument rests comfortably but one can also listen to the sounds lying down or sitting upright whilst enjoying a meditative relaxation as the sounds carry you away.
