The word ‘vibes’ has its origin in the term vibrations. Science has proven the fact that the world around us, our own bodies and the entire universe comprise of various forms of vibrations, each having their own frequencies. It is this theory that in fact helps us to understand the science behind the much in vogue practice of sound or music therapy. All those things that surround us are made up of small particles, or molecules that we cannot see with naked eyes.

Sound vibrations and their different frequencies can have an eminent effect and influence on these matters and state of things. This is how music and tone therapy works on various parts of our body. Sound vibrations are something that we cannot witness with open eyes. It is something that we need to feel with our skin and senses.


Origins of sound healing

The origins of sound healing therapy are a rather old one and dates even earlier than the ancient Egyptian civilization. This is a stream of treatment that has been brought back into contemporary medical science by Gerald Oster. He is the man behind the famous binaural beats or tectonics that is used by so many people for deep sleep and relaxation and for fighting a number of physical and psychological ailments. The effectiveness of this therapy has been endorsed by many and this is a therapy that is used as a supportive system of healing in a large number of contexts.



Physicists have proven the fact that the human body is a plane of electromagnetic waves. A network of such electromagnetic waves and frequencies is known to flow through our body at all times. The human heart alone is known to be one of the epicentres from which flow electromagnetic waves of various frequencies. This is why when we connect and relate well with a stranger we say that our heart wavelengths have matched well. Once again when we are in a disharmonious situation we often cross our hands across our chest. It is said that this is one of the natural tendencies of the human body to protect the heart and the entire human body from negative or unfavourable electromagnetic waves or frequencies.

Now when it comes to measuring frequencies it is always done on the scale of Hertz, written as Hz. There are certain frequencies that are said to be in sync with our chakras and our nature and are harmonious with the human entities. These are the frequencies that have a positive and healing effect on human systems. In the following discourse let us take a look at two such frequencies.


432 Hz & 440 Hz

The frequency level of 432 Hz is one that is said to be incomplete harmony with human nature, the human bodies and also the chakras the DNA structure. It helps to strike a chord of peace and harmony in our hearts and also help to restore the body balance.  Similarly, the 440 Hz is a frequency that is sync with the cerebral balance. It is believed that both these frequencies happen to have healing powers. What differentiates the two frequencies is the pitch that is used in either context. The higher is the pitch the higher is the vibration in the eardrums. Often 440 Hz creates a kind of anxiousness in our bodies and mind. On the other hand, the frequency of 432 has a more relaxing effect on us.


528 Hz

The 528 Hz is a frequency that is often called the ‘love frequency’. Like the 432 frequency, the 528 Hz frequency also seems to have a rather positive effect on the heart and creates a state of relaxation and harmony all over the human body. Here we first need to understand the solfeggio scale.

The Solfeggio scale is a scale that consists of six tones that are also known as tones of creation and also as tones of God. These tones have the quality to heal others can to evoke alter consciousness. Although each one of them happens to be a different mode and can offer holistic experiences you can also get music where all six of them have been used. Many have said that they find it easier to sleep while listening to these tones. These are tones that can inspire deeper healing and more meaningful realizations they are also used for the purposes of meditation and also for hypnosis. These six tones are 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, and 852. Out of all these frequencies, the frequency of 528 is known o have the making power to repair human DNA. Some of the effects of this miracle tone are a feeling of peace, the calmness of the mind and better intuitions. People have also reported of being clearer about their purpose and better focused.

There has been controversy regarding the fact that which of these two frequencies happens to be better at healing the human mind and body. In this context, it can be said that both of them has different effects on the human mind and body. The former is more closely connected with how the heart feels while the other evokes a kind of universal love. It is true that different people might react in a different manner to each of these frequencies and even to other musical frequencies. Sound or music healing also depends on the personal choices and preferences of music for different people. However, both these music tones are time tested that must be better researched and investigated for some more potential findings.
