Good morning as oil on the heart! With you, Irina Ivaskiv. Who, waking up, includes music for his mood? And who at the same time begins to sing along to your favorite song on the headphones? OU! How many of us! But I think that few people think that we are not just purring a popular motive under our breath – singing at this very time heals us. And if you also deal with this purposefully, then health problems can be significantly reduced. Even a special term for this has appeared – vocal therapy – treatment using various vocal techniques. And it’s not necessary to sing like Bartolly or Caruso. It is not a matter of a strong set voice, or even of a perfect ear. The fact is that every vocal sound has a certain effect on a particular organ. And, knowing this, you can compose a set of therapeutic vocal exercises for yourself. This is what we’ll talk about in the article.
How did vocal therapy come about?
Vocal therapy is not experiments and tests, not assumptions and conjectures. This is a medical method of treating many diseases that has a scientific basis. The healing properties of music and singing have long been known. Plato, Democritus, and many other scientists worked in this direction. The ancient Egyptians used singing to treat sleep disorders. The ancient Chinese studied the ability of music to recreate unity with Nature. In ancient India, special musical mantras were created, attributing to them the spiritual and physical healing of the body (by the way, they are still used in meditations to this day).
In 1913, Vladimir Bekhterev, an outstanding researcher, the founder of reflexology, founded a committee for the study of musical and therapeutic effects. This committee included both scientists and musicians. The report on the studies said: music and singing actually have a beneficial effect on the human body, on all its systems from cardiovascular and respiratory to motor and nervous. It was then that it became known that the same part of the brain reads music, which is responsible for both breathing and heartbeat. It is very symbolic, right?
“A”: has a beneficial effect on the heart, is involved in the removal of spasms and the treatment of the gallbladder
“E”: stimulates the trachea, improves the parathyroid gland
(for a more noticeable and long-lasting effect, it is better to sing this sound in a comfortable high tone)
“And”: stimulates the activity of the heart, brain and small intestine, improves vision, cleanses the nose
“O”: has a therapeutic effect on the spine and heart, normalizes the pancreas
“U”: normalizes breathing, improves the functioning of the kidneys, bladder, prostate and uterus
“S”: participates in the activation of the respiratory system, incredibly effectively treats the ears and ear canals
“E”: helps to improve brain function, improves concentration, improves performance
“Yu”: has a therapeutic effect on the kidneys and bladder, is actively involved in the removal of painful cramps
Before you begin to sing healing sounds, sit comfortably with your arms hanging freely along your torso, relax, and mentally focus on the diseased organ. Sing the sounds: 1) in an undertone, 2) on the exhale, 3) 10-12 times, 4) with an interval of 2-3 seconds.
Painkiller moan treatment
vocal therapy People often use vocal techniques without even knowing it. When it hurts, we scream. We were not taught this specifically. Cries and moaning break out from us unconsciously. But they affect us like anesthesia. Many studies have long confirmed the fact that groans on some parts of the brain have a stimulating effect, while on the other, on the contrary, it is overwhelming. Thanks to moans, hormones-endorphins are released into the blood, which are able to anesthetize 50 times better than morphine! Therefore, moans should not be restrained. Vocal therapy includes groans and as a preventive exercise.
Vocal improvisation treatment
Vocal Therapy While singing, not all sound waves travel into the outer space. Only 1/5 of them go into the external environment. And the rest (4/5) is absorbed by internal organs, as a result of which they begin to resonate somewhat differently. Each organ resonates with its own frequency of oscillations per second. Sick organs resonate more slowly or faster than the rhythm set by nature. Singing classes gradually return their healthy vibrations to the weakened organs and harmonize the activities of the disordered body systems. The most effective part of vocal therapy is improvisation, when the patient, during spontaneous singing, picks up sounds that are intuitively similar to those that the body needs.
Singing during pregnancy
vocal therapy Vocal therapy is useful for expectant mothers. During singing, not only the brain of the wash is stimulated, but also the brain of the child. Thanks to this, the baby begins to train the sensitivity of his hearing aid in the womb. It is proved that due to the smooth transitions of the mother’s voice from high to low sounds, the baby’s organs and systems.
