Throughout history, we can find evidence of the use of sound as medicine in just about every corner of the globe. Though most of the ancient practices have been nearly lost in recent history, it would be extremely difficult to find a human being who disagrees with the fact that music and sound affect us on many levels. Yet, we are reaching a pivotal point in western society in which the practice of using sound as therapy and treatment for a very wide range of issues is becoming more readily accepted.
