Overcoming trauma with sound


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A young Harrisburg-area woman is helping erase mental health stigma in the black community.

Regilynn Haywood is the owner of There She Glows, a health and wellness space dedicated to improving the skin, self and soul.

One of its benefits is sound therapy.

“I found the singing bowls and sound therapy as a way to clear my mind,” Haywood said. “With sound therapy, it transforms you into the right frequency at which we operate for healthy, holistic living.”

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, major depressive episodes among blacks are on the rise in almost every age group.

There has also been an increase in serious mental illness among young black adults and most are not receiving treatment.

Haywood thinks one of the reasons this happens is the stigma that comes with asking for help.

“We are strong but in the same breath we have to remember that there is strength in weakness. There is strength in unity. There is strength in getting help. There is strength in saying no,” Haywood said.

Haywood has seen the health power of singing bowls in her own life and encourages others to try them and even combine them with traditional therapy.
