Healing Bamboo Flutes
Ordained Minister, Natural Health
healing properties of Bamboo flutes come from the manifestation of a tone
breath as it is played. This creates a resonance which can bring a sense of
peace and calming. One does
necessarily need to know how to "play" the flute to receive the benefits
of Healing. The benefits come from using the breath and the tones created.
flutes need special care. It is a benefit to them if occasionally you oil
the inside of the flute. Walnut oil prevents the flute from absorbing the
moisture of playing too quickly which can cause it split. Flutes can also
split if brought suddenly into the cold, or if the flute is cold when you
play it. Binding the flute will also help guard against splitting.
The sound of the bamboo flute can lead the mind directly into spiritual
thought. Hear the sound of the mountain lake or the autumn breeze through
the bamboo. They are also used as Feng Shui cures in the home or business
helping to improve the energy flow.
Shakuhachi Bamboo Flutes
Shakuhachi is a specially designed flute usually made from bamboo. It is a
testament to the elegance of traditional Japanese culture. Made from the root
of the bamboo, its aesthetic is organic and simple. It has a different mouth
piece giving it a unique sound and makes it often more difficult to play.
This instrument produces a sound that is said to replicate the full range
of natural life on earth. Using various fingerings and by controlling the
angle of the mouthpiece against the lip, all twelve tones of the western chromatic
scale can be produced. Traditional Japanese music played on this instrument
reflects the many voices of nature.

in emboucheure (mouthing), intensity of blowing and cross fingerings allow
the player to create a wide variety of subtle and incredible sounds on these
lovely flutes. The timbre of the instrument is mellow in its low tones, although
it is equally capable of producing loud, penetrating and breathy tones.
