Solfeggio Frequencies – How Listening to 174 Hz Tones Can Help You Heal

If you struggle with pain, stress, and poor sleep, a single note could change everything. Solfeggio frequencies are specific pitches known for their healing properties among people of different cultures for millennia. The 174 hertz frequency is a powerful healing tone that can alleviate pain and stress and help you sleep better.

What Are Solfeggio Frequencies?

Certain frequencies of sound, known in music as pitches, may provide health benefits. These specific frequencies are called solfeggio frequencies. There’s renewed interest in these healing sounds in modern times, but various cultures have been using them for thousands of years.

Ancient Egyptians adopted these frequencies for healing and for achieving states of altered consciousness. Ancient Sanskrit and Medieval Gregorian chants also incorporated solfeggio frequencies for an enhanced spiritual experience.

Several frequencies fall into this category: 174 Hz, 285 Hz, 396 Hz, 417 Hz, 432 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz, and 852 Hz.

How Do Solfeggio Frequencies Benefit Health?

Modern researchers are beginning to understand how these specific frequencies positively impact the mind and body. For instance, researchers in the 1970s found that when exposed to solfeggio frequencies, the DNA in cells could better absorb ultraviolet light without damage.

More recently, researchers in Japan found that the 528 Hz frequency reduces stress hormones in the body. In another study, researchers exposed people to sounds at 432 Hz and later at 440 Hz. Participants had lower blood pressure and breathing rates, and reported feeling more satisfied when listening to this frequency.

174 Hz – The Healing Frequency

The lowest recognized solfeggio frequency is 174 Hz, also known as the healing frequency. It has the greatest impact on the body and physical health, rather than spiritual or mental health. People mainly experience pain relief from this frequency, although it also reduces stress.

The 174 Hz frequency may produce these effects by lessening tension in the body. The low frequency relaxes muscles, reducing stress and acting as a natural analgesic, or pain reliever. People who use this frequency report finding relief from back pain, migraines, knee pain, and more.

Healing and Better Sleep With Solfeggio Frequencies

Listening to music and sounds at 174 Hz is a great way to promote healing and relaxation, and to relieve physical discomfort. If these issues keep you up at night, the right frequency can help you sleep better.

BetterSleep offers several solfeggio frequencies in its library, including the healing pitch. You can listen to the 174 Hz sound alone or add it to a mix. Alone, the sound is a single, steady note. By adding it to your favorite mix, the pitch will be included as a background sound that can soothe and heal.

You’ll also find several other solfeggio frequencies in the app that can reduce anxiety, boost your optimism, release energy, and more. Researchers are still figuring out how and why these specific sounds benefit human health so much. Whether or not we ever get all the answers, people have known about and have been using these powerful sounds for thousands of years.
