Crystal and Himalayan Sound Bowls
Updated: Mar 18, 2019
Mitchell Gaynor, MD, an oncologist and assistant clinical professor at Cornell University’s Weill Medical College in New York, used singing bowls with his cancer patients. Gaynor saw sound as part of a broader trend toward the humanization of medicine in which the whole person, not just the part that’s broken, is addressed. "I believe that sound can play a role in virtually any medical disorder, since it redresses imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning, Good for both the mind and the body, it has been shown to help lift depression, clear sinuses and help cancer patients recover more quickly from chemotherapy."
