What is the history and science behind the use of solfeggios in healing music?
Sound is energy. Science teaches us that everything in our Universe is energy. Healing music is a form of energy that humans have learned to measure and reproduce to benefit our well-being and that of our world.

I don’t plan to turn this Blog into a Vlog however, you might have noticed that in our category of Eternal Spirit, I have place several posts that contain healing music videos. This naturally begs the question, “How do I use sound vibration to heal spiritually, mentally, or physically and why is Susan so interested in this?”
I strongly believe that if you ask the question, the teacher will appear. The videos in my playlists are based on my own life-long quest for knowledge about myself, my family, and healing in general.
First, I think the definition of ‘sound’ is a good place to begin to explore this subject.
In physics, sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. In human physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain. VIA Wikipedia
In this post I refer to the physiology and psychology reference to the reception of sound waves and their subsequent perception by the human brain.
Next, we need a definition of ‘frequency’.
Frequency is measured in the number of sound vibrations in one second. A healthy ear can hear sounds of very low frequency, 20 Hertz (or 20 cycles per second), to a very high frequency of 20,000 Hertz. The middle C key on a piano creates a 262 Hertz tone. VIA Dangerous Decibels
Then, a definition of ‘Solfeggio Frequencies’ is in order. Now we’re getting down to a fascinating part of this learning process and a very important piece of the music history of European culture. What is a solfeggio frequency?
Solfeggio frequencies make up the ancient 6-tone scale thought to have been used in sacred music, including the beautiful and well known Gregorian Chants. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart spiritual blessings when sung in harmony. Each Solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony…
The original Solfeggio scale was developed by a Benedictine monk, Guido d’Arezzo (c. 991 AD – c. 1050 AD). It was used by singers to learn chants and songs more easily. Today we know the Solfeggio scale as seven ascending notes assigned to the syllables Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti. The original scale was six ascending notes assigned to Ut-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La. The syllables for the scale were taken from a hymn to St. John the Baptist, Ut Queant Laxis, written by Paulus Diaconus. VIA Attuned Vibrations
Please keep in mind, other cultures around the world used these frequencies throughout history, as well.
Next, here is a list of established solfeggio frequencies. VIA All 9 Solfeggio Frequencies of Emotional and Physical Healing Music [Curated]
174 hz – Foundation of Conscious Evolution
285 hz – Acceleration of Conscious Evolution
396 hz – Liberation of Fear and Guilt
417 hz – Facilitating Change
528 hz – Transformation and Miracles
639 hz – Connecting Relationships
741 hz – Consciousness Expansion
852 hz – Awakening Intuition
963 hz – Transcendence
To give you broader perspective, here is the same list minus the first two frequencies and with similar interpretation but slighting different wording.
The main six Solfeggio frequencies are:
396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz – Expression/Solutions
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order, VIA Life Energy Solutions
These are the claims by the experts — that solfeggio frequencies can be used as a therapeutic healing tool to help us manifest balance in every area of our existence. Plus, the interesting thing about energy frequencies is that it isn’t a matter of belief — if we are in this Universe, we share these frequencies infinitely.
If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe. —Nikola Tesla
Knowledge about these frequencies isn’t exclusive to western culture. They have been recognized around the world since ancient times.
- Indigenous American Flute and Drums.
- Ayurveda is found in the form of hymns in the Vedas.
- Buddhist Tibetan chanting.
- The Didgeridoo as used by Australian aboriginal people.
- The ancient pyramids were built to generate specific frequencies.
- Brass bells are used in many cultures to cleanse the air.
- Metal Himalayan singing bowls and gongs create celestial harmony.
In closing, I want to leave you with this video that came to me today through Vimeo. It’s a nice presentation with information about Arch Angel Michael, sacred geometry, and solfeggio frequencies. I especially enjoy the reference to mathematics as the language of the universe.
