Imagine yourself lying in your favorite spot, surrounded by blankets and pillows.
The most relaxing sounds are playing softly around you; The rhythmic beats of a drumming circle or the soothing tones from an instrument that produces a mix of ancient and modern musical elements – like what might be played during meditation sessions at a yoga studio.
You close your eyes for just a moment…
Maybe to take deep breaths as instructed by our “sound healer” or simply because it feels so good to let go of everything else going on outside these four walls right now
…the stressors, responsibilities and deadlines, any concerns about day-to-day life’s challenges.
The deep, soothing sound frequencies then calm brain waves and bring the listener into a deeply restorative state that activates their natural healing system.
Different instruments, such as singing bowls, gongs or Tibetan bowls can be used in sound healing.
What they use depends on what the practitioner intends to do:
For instance, Tibetan Bowl Meditation is different from using a drumming session with someone who has PTSD.
The Sound of the Gong is meant to release tension in your body and stimulate glands.
Crystal Bowls are tuned to different frequencies that help balance our seven chakra points or energy centers.
