History of Solfeggio Frequencies
While the Solfeggio scale originated in medieval Europe, using sound for physical healing is much older and can be traced back to ancient civilizations.
In many cultures, music therapy and sound waves have been believed to have the power to heal the body and the mind. In the Chinese medical tradition, sound therapy was used as a form of treatment for various ailments and was believed to stimulate healing in different body parts.
While Solfeggio Frequencies have a long history, they were largely forgotten for many years. It was in the 1970s that Dr. Joseph Puleo, a naturopathic physician, and researcher, rediscovered them. Dr. Puleo came across the Solfeggio Frequencies while studying the Book of Numbers in the Bible. He noticed that certain passages contained a series of six repeating codes, an ancient 6-tone scale which he believed corresponded to the six notes of the Solfeggio scale. He also found that these codes were linked to a set of ancient frequencies that had been used for healing purposes in biblical times. (Mind Easy)
The Science of Sound
The human ear can only hear a limited range of vibrations per second. In sound science, the number of vibrations per seconds is known as "frequency", which is measured in hertz (Hz).
The human ear is only capable of hearing sounds that vibrate at the frequency of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz (20 kHz). Dolphins and bats are capable of hearing sound up to 100 kHz, so you can see how limited the human capacity for hearing sounds is.
At the heart of solfeggio frequencies is the belief that the vibrational signature of certain sounds, ranging from 174 Hz to 963 Hz, can positively impact our mental, physical and spiritual health. (The Daily Dish)
How Do Solfeggio Frequencies Relate to the Chakras?
Chakras are energy centers in the body responsible for our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In Sanskrit, chakra means “wheel” or “disk.”
There are seven main chakras, each of which is associated with a different color and different functions. When these chakras are in balance, we feel healthy and happy. But when they become imbalanced, we may experience physical or emotional problems.
Using solfeggio frequencies can help balance the chakras and promote healing. A growing body of research supports the use of these frequencies for stress reduction, relaxation, and other health benefits.
One study found that listening to solfeggio frequencies can help to lower blood pressure and heart rate. Another study found that solfeggio frequencies can help to reduce pain. (Better Sleep)
