What is a sound bath?
An immersion in therapeutic acoustic sound, a restorative experience where the body rests in the vibrations of instruments which are played with the intention of healing. All there is to do is to relax in a comfortable cocoon of blankets and pillows as you rest in a beautiful ocean of sound from the Gong, Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls, healing Mantras, chimes and other healing instruments. The vibration washes over you and evokes a deep, rich, intricate web of reverberations that quiets the mind, connecting you to a state of deep relaxation and restoration.
How can sound healing help me?
Resting in a cosy warm room where your body feels supported and restful with eyes gently closed and minimum distractions or outside noise allows the body to naturally slow down and disrupt the cycle of stress response within the body, returning you to balance and rejuvenating your body and mind. One of the potent ways that sound achieves this is by down regulating the stress response of the sympathetic nervous system and up-regulating the para-sympathetic nervous system, the state of rest, repair and renewal.
The healing tones gently reverberate through-out the entire body, like ripples created by a pebble skipped onto a lake. These vibrations create a form of internal cellular massage, stimulate greater cellular nourishment and renewal.
The synchronous sound waves harmonizes the left and right hemispheres of the brain creating clarity, calmness and connecting you to a greater sense of self as well as promoting alpha (deep relaxation), theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur) brain waves. Resting in the soothing sound waves of a sound bath eases the busyness of the mind to create a deeply relaxing meditative state which reduces stress and creates a sense of wholeness and harmony while enabling you to tap into your own internal peace and contentment. deeply restorative experience
