What is Ancient Egyptian Sound Healing?

In Ancient Egypt, if an illness was not “observable” it was thought to be caused by supernatural forces which could only be countered by nonphysical means.

For illnesses with an “observable” cause, both the observable and the supernatural cause had to be dealt with for the treatment to be successful.

This "magic" that was used to treat the supernatural forces relied on the efficacy of the spoken word and on physical association.

The right words or sounds could controvert or deflect malign forces, and the use of amulets or substances that were in contact with these talismans were expected to have a salutary effect. Many temples in Ancient Egypt were built to focus or resonate certain human sounds in the form of special hymns or incantations.
