Frequency, sometimes referred to as pitch, is the number of times per second that a sound pressure wave repeats itself. Usually, when we describe sounds in the audio world and talk about where they reside in pitch (low to high), we refer to them in terms of their frequency.
A drum beat has a much lower frequency than a whistle, and a bullfrog call has a lower frequency than a cricket. The lower the frequency, the fewer the oscillations. High frequencies produce more oscillations.
The units of frequency are called hertz (Hz). Humans with normal hearing can hear sounds between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz. Frequencies above 20,000 Hz are known as ultrasound. When your dog tilts his head to listen to seemingly imaginary sounds, he is tuning in to ultrasonic frequencies, as high as 45,000 Hz. Bats can hear at among the highest frequencies of any mammal, up to 120,000 Hz. They use ultrasonic vocalizations as sonar, allowing them to pursue tiny insects in the dark without bumping into objects.
What is Sound Frequency Healing?
For hundreds of years, scientists have been conscious of the effect of sound on the human body. It has been shown by the scientific study that even inaudible high-frequency sounds can have an effect on human brain activity.
In the modern age, sound frequency healing can be achieved through a variety of methods, from listening to recordings of different binaural frequencies to participating in vibrational-acoustic therapies.
What is the best frequency for the human body?
A normal, healthy body should resonate with a natural frequency of 65-75M Hz. Whileit might be surreal to think about, that means humans generate electromagnetic energyor “noise” even as we’re just standing in place.
When exposed to higher frequencies, such as those found in frequency healing, the human body is stimulated to heal itself. On the flip side of that, if the human body is exposed to constant low-frequency noises, they can develop negative symptoms as aresult.
While it is easiest for a body to maintain homeostasis around frequencies that mimic itsnormal frequency range of 65-75 Mhz, higher frequency exposure in the form of sound therapy can help eliminate negative thought processes and retrain neural circuits.
What are solfeggio frequencies?
When we talk about frequency sounds, we cannot miss out solfeggio frequencies, which are a set of 9 electromagnetic tones that are reputed to have the power to heal and raise consciousness. They form the basis of many ancient sacred music traditions dating back as far as the 8th century, such as the Gregorian chants and Indian Sanskrit chants.
You can use these tones for meditation, as a part of your yoga practice, or simply play them in the background as you go about your day. The best way to listen to solfeggio frequencies with with earphones. Listen to them at a moderately low volume. They don’t need to be loud to be effective. If you don’t have earphones, it’s perfectly fine to listen to them without.

Ways sound frequency healing can improve your health
Incorporating frequency healing into your self-care routine can improve your daily life in a wide variety of ways. Here are some of the ways sound frequency healing can benefit your health:
1. Reduction of stress. Listening to higher frequency audio tapes can fill the listener with
a calming peace and reduce feelings of built-up frustration or stress. Stress reduction associated with sound healing is amplified when used in conjunction with sitting meditation and other mindfulness
2. Reduction of pain. Because actively listening to music can lower your perception of pain, sound healing therapies can lessen a patient’s dependence on painkillers and other medications for the reduction of pain. Some frequencies are also thought to actively combat pain in suffering people and promote the healing of injuries.
3. Spiritual development. Many frequencies of sound are associated with enlightenment and the activation of parts of the brain associated with spirituality. These frequencies can be used together alongside other rituals to develop a deeper overall spiritual practice.
4. Promote healthy relationships. Several frequencies in sound healing are specifically designed to promote feelings of well-being and goodwill towards others, making them an effective form of therapy for those who are feeling frustrated with other people or emotional withdrawal from them.
5. Emotional catharsis. Listening to powerful music as a form of sound therapy can stimulate strong emotional responses, which can then create positive changes in body chemistry. For people who otherwise have a difficult time tapping into their emotional reservoirs, music therapy can help dissolve those emotional blockages.
6. Better sleep. Many forms of sound therapy are used for those who are trying to get a good night’s sleep, especially in environments that contain a lot of low-frequency ambient noise that can create
auditory distress. High-frequency white noise can provide a soothing background frequency to block lower frequency noises and promote sound sleeping patterns and better sleep hygiene.
7. Promote spiritual awareness. Starting up a practice of sound therapy doesn’t just offer the
momentary benefits of listening to the sounds—the act of sound therapy itself makes the listener more aware of their spiritual well-being and promotes the adoption of other spiritual practices. This can lead to an overall increase in happiness and spiritual awareness.
8. Freedom from headaches. Music therapy has been shown to help alleviate the symptoms of chronic headaches in those who suffer them. Not only does music therapy help people to have better control over their pain management in response to a migraine, but it also caused them to have fewer migraines throughout the course of a month.
