Introduction:
Energy, Music and Sound are universal mediums that can connect people
internationally across culture and time. In the age of technology, it is easy to
acknowledge the presence of sound in all aspects of life, and its’ power to evoke
subconscious and unconscious emotion. Sound frequencies have consistently been an
integral part of many societies spiritual practices. Six electromagnetic sound
frequencies also known as ancient solfege tones have been identified as key for
evoking positive effects. Sound therapy methods and treatments for emotional and
physical trauma are consistently being studied and modified to accommodate new
emerging research. Through the exploration of how negative feelings, sounds and
emotions correlate with ancient solfege tones we can identify them as effective tools for
universal healing modalities. New mental health initiatives continue to emerge that
address the many issues that plague our communities. In science, we are continuously
conducting studies to observe how anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
are correlated with negative energy and low frequencies. Today, many resources have
been made available for modern society to acknowledge how music and sound is
embedded in our nature and has contributed to the progress of human evolution.
Discussion:
In an effort to bring awareness and educate communities on the benefits and
significance of sound healing, I chose to focus on the study and use of Sound Healing,
Music Therapy and Solfeggio frequencies to heal trauma. “Nearly everyone today has
been exposed to the potential for PTSD-Music and sound are universal remedies that
are intrinsically built into our cosmology.” (Fauble, 2016) Scientific studies prove that
“atoms vibrate against each other to form a molecule and those atoms and molecules
have signature vibrational waves that can be measured in Hertz. The main findings of
Fauble’s study suggests that, “music and sound healing can help us release emotional
traumas and end the downward spiral of PTSD. The study analyzes the frequence of
Shapes and numbers and note that early Solfege notation was written as shapes, called
solfege singing or “shape-note singing”. Fauble’s study determines that “music and
sound healing can help us release emotional traumas and end the downward spiral of
PTSD. Nearly everyone today has been exposed to the potential for PTSD-Music and
sound are universal remedies that are intrinsically built into our cosmology.” Sound
healing therapy is further supported by studies in quantum physics, sonocytology and
physics due to the basic principle that “everything exists due to vibration.” (Fauble,
2016) The Scientists employ the use “vibrational spectroscopy to study the energy of
the vibration of molecular bonds in order to identify frequency.” (Fauble, 2016) This
study will support my thesis claim by assessing the different mediums used to access
solfeggio frequency healing through sound vibrations.
Through further research, I explored the use of various frequencies, as well as
how our spiritual and energetic bodies are affected by sound and its significance in
healing negative trauma consistently across culture and time.The findings of this
research suggests that “these chants had special tones that were believed to impart
spiritual blessings during religious ceremonies. Solfeggio frequencies represent the
common fundamental sound that is both used in Western Christianity and eastern
Indian religions.”(Ivonin & Chang, 2013) The basis of this research aims to identify the
underlying presence of solfeggio frequencies and its effect on our subconscious
emotions. Early Christian, East Indian, Western European all employ the use of ancient
archetypal sounds, otherwise known as Solfeggio frequencies. “The Solfeggio sounds
were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo in the 1970’s by finding the frequencies with the
use of the Pythagorean method of numeral reduction to unravel six mathematically
encoded patterns he found in the Bible. Also, East Indian classical music uses 12
semi-tones like most Western classical music, but they use Just-Intonation tuning.
Native American chanting is many times based on Just –Intonation. Although it seems
monotone, musical researchers are finding that the monotone sound has a
multidimensional harmonics within it. If further research of music from older cultures is
explored, it will probably reveal Just Intonation practices were used in creating the
music or chanting.”(N/A,2018) Through the study of ancient histories and culturally
diverse origins the significance of the types of sound healing that have been most
universally employed and most effective.
Historically, Solfeggio frequencies have been identified by a set of six tones that
were used long ago in Gregorian chants and Indian Sanskrit chants. It is also known as
the “Schumann Resonance Frequency- This is the measurable frequency around the
Earth and is equal to 7.83Hz. Ancient Indian Yogis referred to this as OM. The theory is
that when our body is unbalanced and off center it is inherently searching for this note.
Man made EMF’s can produce severe dis-ease within humans and researchers in
geophysics theorize that human health is linked to the Earth’s frequencies.” (Ivonin &
Chang, 2013). Ivonin & Chang’s study further defines the relationship between the
archetypal sounds, ‘Om’ and Solfeggio frequencies. The sacred syllables and sounds in
Indian religions is compared to ancient gregorian chants and believed to possess the
healing components of solfeggio frequencies. “Om” is the reflection of the absolute
reality without beginning or end and embracing all that exists. “According to the
statistical analysis, “the archetypal sounds evoked even stronger heart rate deceleration
than the negative sounds.... based on one of the original purposes of the archetypal
sounds, which is to support people in meditation practice. Indeed, to achieve a proper
mental state during meditation, people have to move away from their conscious
experiences and free their mind from thoughts. Therefore, people use the archetypal
sounds (for instance, the famous “Om” sound) to keep the conscious concentrated on
these sounds while they meditate. Then, one can infer that the archetypal sounds
efficiently capture the attention of individuals. (Ivonin & Chang, 2013) These findings
conclude that archetypal sounds in particular are effective in inducing states of
meditation and their powerful effect on our subconscious mind and spirit.
Solfeggio frequencies in particular can be used to aid the evolution of our mind’s,
bodies and spirits. “Change the frequency of our music and change the frequency of our
minds. By tuning to 432 Hz or 443/444 Hz, rather than the 440 Hz common since the
last half of the 20th century, we could retune the frequency of our minds, emotions and
bodies to one resonant with the earth, our own magnetic fields and that of the universe
itself. In addition to changing popular tuning back to its original frequency, we can add in
tones and undertones that specifically correlate to the type of music we are creating and
the intention of that music. Music to empower and instill a sense of universal love and
acceptance: the tonic could be 528 Hz. Music to provide a sense of security and plenty:
rooted in 396 Hz. Romantic music for sensual evenings and truly intimate connection on
a soul level: 639 Hz. Whatever intention the song has, there is a PRF that complements
and expands it. Not only will music be more resonant with the natural world and human
instinct, it may likely garner musicians a larger and more loyal fan base as well as more
income.” (Fauble, 2016)
Music therapy and its relation to Solfeggio frequencies can even be traced to
David Hulse’s research, which identifies a series of six electromagnetic sound
frequencies exist and their correlation to the six missing tones of the ancient Solfeggio
scale: 396 Hz, 417 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz, 852 Hz. “The Solfeggio frequencies
have been popularized and marketed for their healing qualities, mostly by new-age
healers and promoters of alternative medicines. There are however, a few musicians,
as well as academics with a background in music, who discuss these frequencies. One
of them is John Beaulieu, a composer, pianist, and naturopathic doctor, who offers an
interpretation of the text from which the traditional Solfeggio syllables (Ut, Re Mi, Fa,
So, La) were derived—that of the Hymn to St. John the Baptist”.(Schnitman, 2013) All
six Solfeggio frequencies are said to have specific healing effects as they interact with
the vibrational energies of the human body. (Clement, 2019) The science of sound is
beneficial as a tool for people to raise their vibrations and cultivate high energetic
frequencies for physical/emotional/spiritual healing and manifesting abundance. In my
research, I discovered how sound can be used in conjunction with numbers, shapes,
chakra healing, musical notes from instruments and visualizations to combat PTSD,
anxiety, panic and manage stress/mood.
In Akimoto & Yamaguchi’s study investigates how the “differences in the
frequency of music affect the human body.”(Akimoto & Kobayashi, 2018). The results
suggest that music including high-frequency sound stimulates dopamine synthesis and
suppresses sympathetic nervous system activity. Furthermore, others report that
listening to high-frequency music increases the activity of the parasympathetic nervous
system and reduces stress. Therefore, in the present study, we examined the stress
reduction effect of music with a frequency of 528 Hz by measuring its influence on the
endocrine system and autonomic nervous system. The findings determine that
“frequency (528 Hz) has lately attracted attention as “healing” music. Usually, the
reference tone of tuning is 440 Hz, and this is the international standard frequency (we
refer to this as 440 Hz music).” It is important to acknowledge “setting the reference
tone to 444 Hz means that 528 Hz is included in the musical scale.”(Akimoto &
Kobayashi, 2018) When the reference tone is tuned and composed to 444 Hz to
include 528 Hz solfeggio frequency music is created. The study examined the effects of
solfeggio sound on levels or cortisol and oxytocin to measure healing and stress relief.
This study is supportive in my claim that music and sound can be used to heal PTSD by
its observation of solfeggio frequencies on the nervous system.
Overall this study concluded “that participants experienced objective and
subjective stress reduction after listening to 528 Hz music, while this effect could not be
confirmed for 440 Hz music. In this study, participants listened to music only for five
minutes in each condition. In most previous studies, participants have listened to music
for 10 minutes or longer. Therefore, it might be the case that listening to 440 Hz music
for longer would evoke the stress-reducing effect, especially as indexed by
chromogranin A and the POMS 2, as in previous studies. However, the point remains
that even if the exposure to music lasts only five minutes, listening to 528 Hz music
reduces stress to the endocrine system and the autonomic nervous system. Although
the sample size of this study was limited, these are interesting data and could provide
support for a new approach in music therapy.”(Akimoto & Kobayashi, 2018) The
findings of this research explores how they can use music therapy, electromagnetic
sound frequencies and solfeggio sound science to heal mind, body and spirit. Further
supporting that sound healing using solfeggio frequencies as an effective tool in heal
negative physical, emotional and spiritual trauma.
Based on the studies aforementioned, Sound healing can successfully be used
as therapy for PTSD, anxiety and physical illness. Tuning into specific significant
frequencies can assist with combating man-made Electromagnetic Frequencies that
cause disease, disharmony and amplifying negativity. Historically, across cultures and
early religions including Christian, East Indian, Western European evidence of ancient
archetypal sounds, otherwise known as Solfeggio frequencies are prevalent.”(Ivonin &
Chang, 2013) The research relies on the correlation between 6 solfeggio
electromagnetic frequencies and with the modern music scale, ancient archetypal
sounds as alternatives to medicine.
Through the study of solfeggio frequencies and its effect on the mind, body and
spirit, we can come to the conclusion that sound therapy is effective in healing various
ailments. “In closing, music and sound are powerful allies on our journey toward higher
consciousness and human evolution. As we enter the next phase of human growth and
awareness, let us use the tools given to us from our very origins and expand upon the
energy inherent in them to propel us on our journey into a future of true health and
well-being, understanding, acceptance and mutual love and support.”(Fauble, 2016).
Results:
The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) defines music therapy as “an
established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to
address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals” (Barnett &
Shale, 2012). Music therapy involves singing, writing music, making music, listening to
music, and lyric analysis, among many other techniques (Barnett & Shale, 2012).
Psychologists will want to make their clients aware that the quality of their music is not
what impacts the therapeutic process. Rather, the focus should be on helping clients to
explore their thoughts and feelings through the use of a music intervention. Music
therapy is a multidimensional approach in that it focuses on a variety of
“facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual” as a means to
improve health (Barnett & Shale, 2012). Some evidence is provided that supports music
therapy’s use to reduce anxiety, depression, and pain although the literature is limited
(Barnett & Shale, 2012). Music therapy may ethically and appropriately be integrated
into ongoing psychological treatment by appropriately trained psychologists.
Understanding the relationship between music, sound and vibration has brought
us closer to determining how sound therapy effects the body. The main findings of
Fauble’s study suggests that “music and sound healing can help us release emotional
traumas and end the downward spiral of PTSD. Nearly everyone today has been
exposed to the potential for PTSD-Music and sound are universal remedies that are
intrinsically built into our cosmology”(Fauble, 2016). Through the use of quantum
physics, sonocytology and physics “everything exists due to vibration.” Scientific
studies prove that “atoms vibrate against each other to form a molecule and those
atoms and molecules have signature vibrational waves that can be measured in Hertz.
The Scientists employ the use “vibrational spectroscopy to study the energy of the
vibration of molecular bonds in order to identify frequency”(Fauble, 2016). The study
analyzes the frequence of Shapes and numbers and note that early Solfege notation
was written as shapes, called solfege singing or “shape-note singing”. This study will
support my thesis claim by assessing the different mediums used to access solfeggio
frequency healing through sound vibrations.
Various instruments are utilized to create unique sound vibrations as powerful
aids for healing modalities. The main findings of Carey’s Journal highlights the use of
tuning forks on the spine to induce “relaxation, release pain, trauma and emotional
toxicity”. Carey’s study states, “Each vertebra is associated with an organ or other
energetic nexus within the body, so these points can be used to balance, tonify and
renew the entire system”(Carey, 2003). The study applies the “Ohm” tuning forks to
different corresponding chakra points and “bilaterally along the spine from the neck to
the tailbone creates relaxation, general balance, grounding, and tonification of organs
and systems, continue into the sacral hiatus and coccyx to liberate unresolved issues
from the past”(Carey, 2003). The tuning forks are also correlated with the moon cycles,
sacred tones and interval music notes. The sacred tones are translated to music notes
to create “the Solfeggio scale as seven ascending notes assigned to the syllables
Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti. The original scale was six ascending notes assigned to
Ut-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La.”(Carey, 2003). This journal review is significant in explaining the
correlation between the 5th music interval which allows for emotional release and an
ancient solfeggio tone.
Schnitman & Maria T, studies the significance of sound using solfeggio
frequencies and binaural beating with numerology and symbolism. Their research aims
to discuss “the overarching premise of my composition is tied to the notion of using
music as a healing device, spiritual and otherwise. There were many influences on this
piece. Some of the most prominent include systems of musical temperament, the
Solfeggio frequencies, and St. Hildegard von Bingen, one of my favorite Medieval
composers and historical figures. The following analysis of Sonic Peace highlights the
most relevant influences and show how they merged with each other and with my
personal aesthetics to create Sonic Peace”(Schnitman & Maria, 2013). This thesis
compares the six frequencies popularized by horowitz and associate them with a
different healing quality. The numerical symmetry paired with the symbolism is used to
release and heal negative energetic emotional trauma. This study supports my claims of
how sound can be used to reharmonize mind, body and spirit by channeling the healing
properties of particular solfeggio frequencies.
In Ivonin & Chang’s study, they determined the relationship between archetypal
sounds, ‘Om’ and Solfeggio frequencies. The sacred syllables and sounds in Indian
religions is compared to ancient gregorian chants and believed to possess the healing
components of solfeggio frequencies. “Om” is the reflection of the absolute reality
without beginning or end and embracing all that exists. Next, Solfeggio frequencies are
a set of six tones that were used long ago in Gregorian chants and Indian Sanskrit
chants. “The findings of this research suggests that “these chants had special tones that
were believed to impart spiritual blessings during religious ceremonies. Solfeggio
frequencies represent the common fundamental sound that is both used in Western
Christianity and eastern Indian religions (Ivonin & Chang, 2013).” The basis of this study
aims to identify the underlying presence of solfeggio frequencies and its effect on our
subconscious emotions.
In Akimoto & Yamaguchi’s study investigates how the “differences in the
frequency of music affect the human body.” The results suggest that music including
high-frequency sound stimulates dopamine synthesis and suppresses sympathetic
nervous system activity . Furthermore, others report that listening to high-frequency
music increases the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system and reduces stress.
Therefore, in the present study, we examined the stress reduction effect of music with a

tuning is 440 Hz, and this is the international standard frequency (we refer to this as 440
Hz music).” It is important to acknowledge “setting the reference tone to 444 Hz means
that 528 Hz is included in the musical scale.” (Akimoto & Kobayashi, 2018) When the
reference tone is tuned and composed to 444 Hz to include 528 Hz solfeggio frequency
music is created. The study examined the effects of solfeggio sound on levels or cortisol
and oxytocin to measure healing and stress relief. This study is supportive in my claim
that music and sound can be used to heal PTSD by its observation of solfeggio

Conclusion:
Based on the studies aforementioned, Sound healing can successfully be used
as therapy for PTSD, anxiety and physical illness. Tuning into specific significant

Sound and music have been an important part of the human experience as far back as our historical records reach, and cultures all around the world have used aural modalities to heal and communicate for many thousands of years. Current medical evidence and scientific measurements suggest that music and sound are some of the most effective instruments that can be used to facilitate patient recovery from surgery, trauma, and disease. This paper discusses how ancient beliefs and practices concerning music and sound converge with modern knowledge and technology to influence the development of new theories in science and medicine. Religious and cultural anthropology, archaeology, and philosophy point to the prevalence and importance of music and sound in societies that may predate Paleolithic man. The role of sound and music in mind-body mechanisms, consciousness, communication, and emotion are explored through a wide range of notable mathematic, scientific, and evidence-based theories. Recent studies show how music and sound can enhance therapies to transform the brain and relieve mental, emotional, and physical suffering. This burgeoning evidence, along with the proven efficacy of integral healing modalities, can be used to help health professionals, therapists, and individuals craft more effective, sound-based, personalized therapies and treatment plans that perpetuate both individual and collective health and well-being.

Lifelogging tools aim to precisely capture daily experiences of people from the first-person perspective. Although there have been numerous lifelogging tools developed for users to record the external environment around them, the internal part of experience characterized by emotions seems to be neglected in the lifelogging field. However, the internal experiences of people are important and, therefore, lifelogging tools should be able to capture not only the environmental data, but also emotional experiences, thereby providing a more complete archive of past events. Moreover, there are implicit emotions that cannot be consciously experienced, but still influence human behaviors and memories. It has been proven that conscious emotions can be recognized from physiological signals of the human body. This fact may be used to enhance life-logs with information about unconscious emotions, which otherwise would remain hidden. On the other hand, it is not clear if unconscious emotions can be recognized from physiological signals and differentiated from conscious emotions. Therefore, an experiment was designed to elicit emotions (both conscious and unconscious) with visual and auditory stimuli and to record cardiovascular responses of 34 participants. The experimental results showed that heart rate responses to the presentation of the stimuli are unique for every category of the emotional stimuli and allow differentiation between various emotional experiences of the participants.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) has a long history of use with some modalities being in existence for thousands of years. In recent years there has been a greater awareness of the many benefits of CAM for promoting health and wellness as well as for ameliorating a wide range of conditions and ailments treated by psychologists and other health professionals. One vision of the future of the practice of psychology includes each psychologist developing and maintaining competence in CAM and integrating it into each client's care as is relevant and appropriate. Support is provided for the belief that CAM will play an important role in the practice of psychology for years to come. Relevant issues emphasized include an emphasis on Evidence Based Practice in Psychology, the needs and preferences of a rapidly diversifying society, and the increasing focus on health promotion, wellness, spirituality, and many non-Western traditions that are consistent with this approach. This article provides an overview of each of the 14 most widely used forms of CAM, discusses limitations in the current body of scientific evidence in support of CAM and makes recommendations for how psychologists should be integral in addressing them, highlights ethical issues that each psychologist will want to be cognizant of and address when integrating CAM into their practices, and makes recommendations for education, training, and practice.
