The Six Healing Sounds
Sound vibration is an important element in most Taoist healing techniques. At our Taoist Ki Wellness Center in Harlem, sound vibrations play an important role in both Ki Training and Ki Treatment. Part of the first training exercise during our Wednesday night Ki Training program is learning a special chant that clears the mind and balances the body and spirit.
In Ki Treatments the Ki Master will use the liver sound SHHHHHH, this sound benefits the Master as well as the person being treated. It allows the master to maintain focus and intent; it also helps the master to transform negative energy into positive energy. The sound helps the person being treated to relax and decrease stressful illusionary thoughts.
Taoist master and author Mantak Chia, writes about the six healing sounds in his famous book Chi Nei Tsang (Internal Organs Chi Massage). Each sound corresponds with a vital organ. As mentioned above the SHHHHH sound is used to improve the function of the Liver and Gall Bladder. The SSSSSSS sound is used to improve the Lungs and Large Intestine.
The WOOOOO sound is made to improve the function of the Kidneys and Bladder. The HAWWWWW sound is made to improve the function of the Heart and Small Intestine. The WHOOOO sound is made to improve the function of the Spleen. With practice this sound can also be used to eliminate indigestion, nausea and diarrhea.
The HEEEEEE sound is the sound that brings balance to the Triple Warmer. Many are not familiar with the Triple Warmer which is the three energy centers of the body. The upper section (brain, heart, and lungs) is hot; the middle section (liver, kidneys, stomach, pancreas, and spleen) is warm; and the lower section (large and small intestines, bladder, and sexual organs) is cool. When the three temperatures are balanced the immune system is reinforced to combat illness.
Master Chia describes the positions one must take when making the six sounds in easy to follow steps along with other vital organ massage techniques that can be very useful for self-healing.
