WHAT IS A SOUND BATH

Sound can be very powerful – just think how music can affect – physically, mentally and emotionally – can make you feel happy, sad, alive, relaxed etc. Gongs and other instruments such as Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Chimes, Shakers and Drums are used as a form sound therapy, with the player taking you into a deep state of relaxation. The instruments envelop you in a cocoon of sound that feels warm, deeply cleansing and nurturing.

The vibrations of the instruments have wonderful effects on the human being from top to toe. On a physical level, your cells will all vibrate (some people who feel this strongly describe it as their limbs feeling fizzy!). On an emotional level you may find yourself opening up from the heart, feeling things you’ve not felt since childhood. And in the mind, your brainwaves are massaged such that you go through states akin to day-dreaming, meditation and deep sleep. Many people find the experience very spiritual in nature, and most find it deeply relaxing.

Inevitably, everyone’s experience will be slightly different. Most people tell me they feel amazing – relaxed yet energised; that they sleep like a log and can’t wait for the next time! Sometimes when there is a lot of tension to release (mental, physical, and/or emotional) you can feel slightly irritable or tearful afterwards …but that’s a good thing … shows healing taking place.

The sounds enable you to re-group, re-energise, re-balance.

GROUP GONG SOUND BATH 

If you’ve never been to a gong bath and would like to know a bit more about happens ….. well, in essence it’s very simple … you lay, fully clothed on a yoga mat (or similar) snuggled up in a blanket and let the sounds of the gong wash over you – hence the name gong bath. These type of events are known as Sound Baths – as in addition to gongs, I use Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls and more to provide you with a wonderfully relaxing experience.

The first time you come, inevitably, you’ll be feeling curious, perhaps even a bit nervous. A lot of people have told me it just gets better and better each time they come along.
