A sound bath is a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound waves (vibrations) with deeply resonant crystal singing bowls and gongs. As the mind and body relax, the heart rate and blood pressure decrease, and our breathing becomes deeper. In this state is where deep healing can occur.
Studies show sound has proven to have healing effects on the mind as well as the body. A sound bath session can lead to reduced anxiety levels, tension, and sadness as well as diminished pain. It may seem like sound baths are yet another New Age trend, but sound therapy is as old as time, dating back over 40,000 years. Ancient Greeks used flutes and lyres to treat digestion and mental health, Tibetans used singing bowls for over 2,000 years for meditation purposes, and Australian aboriginal tribes played the didgeridoo to heal the sick.
