Sound therapy has been found effective in treating a surprising range of health challenges including heart disease, arthritis, stress, emphysema, and more. On Self-Healing with Sound and Music, bestselling author and physician Dr. Andrew Weil teams up with sound therapist Kimba Arem to offer listeners a powerful new tool for healing in two sessions.
In Session One, Dr. Weil discusses the latest in medical research that demonstrates how music heals the body and mind, while Kimba Arem teaches breathing and vocalization techniques for harnessing this potential. Session Two gives listeners just the music: a complete sound journey into expanded states of consciousness optimized for healing. Through an integration of ambient beats, natural sounds, indigenous and classical instruments, and a state-of-the-art recording process called Holophonic™ technology that creates a three-dimensional healing space, listeners experience prescription-strength music with the power to influence every system of the body.
Useful for relaxation, meditation, bodywork, or creative endeavors, Self-Healing with Sound and Music features didjeridoo, Native American and Celtic flutes, Tibetan and crystal bowls, keyboards, and voice.
“Great music for relaxation and meditation – 5.0 out of 5 stars
I hate New Age music if it uses a lot of synthesized sounds and tries to sound like it’s coming from outer space.
I like music that is played on real instruments, and I don’t mind if it incorporates sounds from nature, along with it.
This music is very relaxing and very natural and real sounding. That is because it IS real. It uses various acoustic instruments which are played in a way that creates a very soft, relaxing environment which is conducive to meditation and relaxation.”
“My favorite relaxation CD and I’ve tried many! – 5.0 out of 5 stars
I’ve borrowed many ‘relaxation’ CDs from the public library to combat stress. This is one of the very few that I decided to buy. The first CD is mostly talk by the two authors, but I often play the second all-music CD at bedtime, at naptime, or to help me go back to sleep when I awaken too early or in the middle of the night.”
“The relaxing music on this CD is pretty unique. It utilizes exotic instruments and it seems to me it is being played very much from the heart. I often use this CD when doing yoga or meditating.”

“Amazing sleep inducing CD
Forget your troubles and escape to a wonderful garden of musical enchantment.
I’ve used (Self-Healing with Sound and Music) for years to put myself to sleep at nite, and use it again in the middle of the nite if I awaken.
I’ve given it as a gift to my insomniac pals.
Forget the lecture CD. The music CD is a wonderful journey through all kinds of music, including digeridoo, flutes, piano, birds and whales singing – and much much more…”
“I really love this CD – Self-Healing with Sound and Music. I will buy it as gifts for my grown children and friends. It offers a wealth of knowledge about sound, and the music is incredible. I have used it for meditation and relaxation, and actually fell asleep once, while listening to the music while resting. Being a composer of music and a certified yoga teacher, I appreciate the professionalism and depth of this album. Bravo to Kimba Arem and Dr. Weil!”

“This tape (Self-Healing with Sound and Music) is very easy to take even for non-newagers. The Doc is a nice and interesting guy with a good voice.
Kimba is a delight with a Hawaiian aura and fabulous instruments which she plays in a beautiful way.
The musical part of the tape is lovely and relaxing.
Weil’s whole series is great for people in crisis who need to focus their brains to help them heal and deal with pain.
Check it out!”

I have had this cd set (Self-Healing with Sound and Music) for a while and use the music cd in the whole house intercom when family members are sick or facing stress. Recently I have been playing it on the computer in the hospital 24/7 while my family member was recuperating from surgery and later complications. I definitely notice a difference in everything from blood pressure to O2 sats/rbc’s when I’ve been playing this v. the nights I have not. Who knows, but I’m not questioning it. I highly recommend this cd even as a relaxation cd, it can play for days on end and keep the energy in the room calm and healthy.”
“Self Healing with Sound & Music” does exactly what the title implies. The first CD is quite informative and I enjoyed Dr. Weil’s explanation on the effect sound has on our body and mind. The second CD sends you into another world it is so soothing. If you are under stress, having health issues, or just want to relax and unwind I would recommend this CD.”

“This is a 2 cd pack (Self-Healing with Sound and Music). The first cd was an interesting lecture by Andrew Weil and Kimba Arem’s about the theory of healing with sound, with a bit of physics thrown in. They mention how we live surrounded by sound pollutants (car alarms, drilling, cell phone shouters) and how we should be more careful what sounds/vibrations we let in.
The second CD has very lovely music by Kimba, with bells and water and subtle chants, which I find soothing. I find quite a lot of new age music really irritating, so the fact that this one works for me, makes this a very nice find.
Edited to add that I’ve had this CD for over a year and have listened to it endlessly. It has become my preferred music for a restless night, and it’s both soothing and uplifting. I really like it and recommend it to lots of friends. I would use it every time I get a massage, it’s perfect for there too, and finding that one deep breath to take and let go…”
