Meditation and sound healing are both ancient disciplines going back thousands of years and have been recorded in many cultures and traditions across the world.
The practices of sound healing and meditation are becoming increasingly popular again across the globe, as these techniques are known to enhance physical and mental health, as well as the overall wellbeing of adults and children of all ages.
Sound healing aims to rebalance the entire body, whilst meditation empowers kids within this age category to manage their mental health and provides them with coping mechanisms for obstacles and issues they may encounter. Both sound and meditation bring about a deep sense of peace and inner calm, which can be vital in this often challenging life stage.
Through meditation and sound adolescents learn that it is okay to be whoever they are and feel whatever they feel. These ancient techniques foster self-acceptance, build confidence, and enhance the feeling of empowerment. Research also reasons that because children’s brains are innately more malleable than adults, it is plausible that meditation will lead to long-lasting positive effects (Waters 2015).
Sound healing and meditation can be a valuable support for any child of 12 to 17 years, whether they are performing at expected level, are exceptionally gifted, or experiencing some form of learning or developmental difficulty. Sound and meditation are universal modalities that can unite people of all abilities, backgrounds, and ages together.
When it comes to meditation, mindfulness, and sound healing, there is a huge body of peer-reviewed research available online that verifies the many benefits associated with it. We have included some examples in the research and resources section at the bottom of the page.
