Can sound waves heal our bodies and minds? There’s a growing belief that certain holistic healing methods such as sound therapy do lead to positive health outcomes. In my previous podcast episode, I examined the physiological responses we have to audio stimulation, by understanding how our ears and brains process information received audibly through sound waves, and then looking at the relationship between our brain waves and our health in an effort to introduce you to sound healing.

In this episode I will be discussing the practical use of sound for enhancing well-being, with special guest Alexander Tuttle, a sound therapist and musician who holds a private practice in Stokesdale, North Carolina, where he works with people struggling with anxiety, depression, pain, substance abuse, and other trauma-related issues. Listen to the audio, and when you’re finished, be sure to leave me a comment. Do you have any experience with sound healing therapies?
