58 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k j u l y / a u g u s t 2 0 1 9 Sound Therapy and Cancer By Lisa Bakewell Based in neurology and biophysics, sound healing is gaining mainstream acceptance. And in recent years, sound healing has also found its way into cancer centers—helping patients deal with both treatment and recovery. A Sound Renewal For Jahmaal Hays, president of Eastern Vibration (which specializes in vibrational healing), sound healing is nothing new. Cultures around the world use sound therapeutically. "Music, and using sounds consciously, has always been a part of my life," he says. "However, I first discovered sound therapy in treatments for health- related reasons when I discovered Himalayan singing bowls during a trip to Nepal when I was 12 years old." According to Hays, when he first started his sound therapy practice, he didn't know anyone teaching or even doing sound therapy. "I pieced my practice together from tantric and yogic scriptures, pranic healing, ayurvedic medicine, and Chinese medicine, until we developed our own practice and training methods," he says. Christine Hays, who owns Eastern Vibration with her son Jahmaal, offers sound therapy to residents in a Nepalese Temple.
