Experience the powerful revitalizing effects of sound bath meditation to reset your mind and body 

 

Sound healing is a profound experience enabling your body to “bathe” in the healing vibrations of sound.

It’s a wonderfully easy way to access a deeply relaxing therapy

A gong bath, or gong meditation, is a form of sound healing designed to offer:

  • relaxation

  • emotional release

  • pain relief

 

It's a way of relaxing, calming and de-stressing as you bathe in the harmonics produced by a single gong or better still a whole group of gongs which create overtones said to be healing and balancing, working on numerous levels – mental, emotional and energetic.

 

It’s referred to as a ‘bath’ due to participants being immersed in the vibrations of these instruments during a session

You will feel more clam and centred. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the deep healing resonance on the gongs that are wonderfully relaxing, meditative and healing.

A gong bath is an immersive sound experience. It's called a 'bath'  because sound waves 'wash' over you as you relax and enjoy the melodic journey. The harmonics will effortlessly lull your mind into a calm relaxed meditative state, while the vibrations revitalize your body and help to release tension. By the end, you'll feel beautifully relaxed, calm and happy.

 

One of the beauties of experiencing a gong bath is that it helps people access meditation through power of gong resonance.  Many people are challenged and find it difficult to sit in stillness, in a gong bath you can lay in a comfortable position.  Many people also comment that their mind is too busy to meditation, sound helps people focus.  As you listen to the sounds around you they help lower brainwave frequencies from Beta (anxiety) to Alpha (relaxed) and Theta (inward focused, meditative) These lower frequencies are extremely healing for the mind and body.  It is also usual to experience a tingling or electricity sensation this is completely normal, it is the sound washing over your body.

 

The sound of the gong entrains your brainwaves to a relaxed and restorative state. It's a great way to reap the benefits of meditation without any experience required.

 

 

What should I bring?

Comfort is key. Bring a mat if you have one, plenty of blankets, I like to use one underneath as well as on top (some people find a sleeping bag helpful).  A thin cushion for underneath your head and a bolster/pillow for underneath your knees can be really helpful.   The room will be darkened however an eye mask or eye pillow can help the relaxing experience.

 

History

Using sound as a form of healing dates back to ancient cultures. Records of using gongs have surfaced from as early as ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman times.

 

Gong baths and sound baths: What’s the difference?

The phrases “gong bath” and “sound bath” can be used interchangeably. The key difference between these two types of sound healing experience is the type of sound and the instruments used

Both a gong bath and a sound bath use sound to induce a state of calm and deep relaxation, but a sound bath may use crystal singing bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, and other instruments,

By contrast, only gongs are used during gong baths.

During a gong bath, participants typically lie down and get comfortable with blankets and pillows. A facilitator then hits the gong, a disc-shaped percussion instrument, using a padded mallet.
