We all know that music is a great form of therapy to calm, inspire, and connect us. But what if I told you that it's now possible to go further?

Can you imagine using music, or rather sound frequencies, carefully developed after years of research to help people with autism stimulate communication, promote meaningful social interactions, and help your autistic child develop essential skills such as motor coordination, emotional control, and independence?

Science is still catching up to understanding how sound heals, but the current research is promising. A review of 400 published scientific articles on music as medicine found strong evidence that music has mental and physical health benefits in improving mood and reducing stress.

One study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that an hour long sound meditation helped people reduce tension, anger, fatigue, anxiety, and depression while increasing a sense of spiritual well-being. The sound meditation used a range of Tibetan singing bowls.

One theory is that sound works through the vibrational tactile effects on the whole body. Sound could stimulate touch fibers that affect pain perception. One study of people with fibromyalgia found that ten treatments (twice per week for five weeks) of low-frequency sound stimulation improved sleep and decreased pain, allowing nearly three-fourths of participants to reduce pain medication.
