Humming and its Benefits

Humming as part of your meditation practice can add multiple benefits.

Here are some benefits from Jonathan and Andi Goldman from their book "The Humming Effect" 


"When we began The Humming Effect, we knew that people would be skeptical about the positive benefits of such an easily made sound, so our first chapter focuses on various “peer review” studies (from medical and scientific publications) in order to validate the phenomenon of humming. Some of these physiological benefits include:

  • Increased oxygen in the cells—enhancing health and wellness.

  • Lowered blood pressure and heart rate

  • Increased lymphatic circulation—clearing toxins from the body

  • Increased levels of melatonin—a hormone that enhances sleep

  • Reduced levels of stress-related hormones—enhancing health and wellness

  • Release of endorphins—self-created opiates that work as “natural pain relievers” and make us feel good

  • Increased levels of nitric oxide, (NO), a molecule associated with vasodilation and the           promotion of healing

  • Release of oxytocin –the “love” hormone, creating trust between us.
