Transcript

Those of us who work in radio believe that sound can tell a story, sometimes better than pictures can; Sound can open your mind and spark your imagination.

Some even believe sound can be therapeutic. A school in Encinitas actually teaches how to use the sound of Tibetan singing bowls to heal.

Diane Mandel is California's only state certified Tibetan bowl practitioner and instructor. She runs the Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School in Encinitas.

She said sound therapy using Tibetan bowls is a practice that began with Tibetan Buddhism and uses vibration sound from bowls to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace.

Mandel said the ancient practice can help with everything from stress to trauma to neuropathy.

Complete fail KPBS. I was shocked to hear a very excellent report about discrimination of abused women in the workplace followed by this ridiculous report. If your goal was to spread pseudoscience and complete scientific illiterately, well done.

KPBS should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this nonsense on the air. The opposite of informing the public.

If anyone seeks this a therapy in place of actual medicine and is harmed, KPBS should consider themselves at fault. How does this come from the same organization that brings us Science Friday? Unbelievable!

I read the transcript and I am not finding any questionable claims, or any suggestion at all that this should replace traditional medicine. The interview talks about this for help with stress and "faster recovery from the effects of chemotherapy."

So try it or don't, but I think it's interesting.

Aloha!

I have been practicing sound healing for 20 years of many forms, including tibetan bowls. Before you judge and make assumptions try it for yourself. Experience it for yourself you are only limiting yourself by your own judgment, beliefs based on what? The whole universe is made of sound and light, vibrations some we hear some our ears cannot detect. Every living thing has a sound signature, plants play a symphony of song we cannot hear with the human ear, check it out for yourself on you tube. http://youtu.be/nXhhAXjKmIU
