Sound Bath Meditation

How about a vibrational sound bath along with a guided meditation? A perfect opportunity to experience a deep state of relaxation.

What are Tibetan Singing Bowls?

For hundreds of years, Tibetans have practiced a form of sound healing and spiritual transformation leveraging a hand-made musical instrument known today as Tibetan Singing bowls. Traditionally, monks and Buddhists practitioners have used the bowls in rituals, prayers, and meditation, and their sounds and vibrations have been described as the “sound of the void” or “sound of the universe manifesting.” Made of a special seven-metal alloy of gold, silver, iron, mercury, tin, copper, and lead, each metal represents one of the seven chakras. They are made by monks who use a traditional process of shaping them with a hammer, while singing a series of sacred chants and mantras to infuse the bowls with healing intention.

What are the benefits of Tibetan Singing Bowl sound baths?

While western medicine is still catching up to the ancient wisdom of our ancestors around the world, sound healing with Tibetan Singing Bowls has been known to provide the following benefits:

  • Reduction in tension, anxiety, and depression
  • Balance of the chakras. According to many traditions, chakras are our energy centers, and it’s believed that physical and emotional challenges are the result of one or more chakras being blocked or unbalanced. The notes of the bowls correspond with each of the significant chakras. Keeping these facilities in harmony causes wellness and harmony.
  • Immune system stimulation. “Sound can actually change our immune system,” explains Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at Cornell Cancer Prevention Center, author of “The Healing Power of Sound,” who used singing bowl therapy with his cancer patients.
  • Lower Blood Pressure. A study published in the American Journal of Health Promotion found that singing bowl treatment resulted in a greater reduction in systolic blood pressure and heart rate. Others have found a reduction in cardiac complications among patients who have recently suffered heart attacks.
  • Pain Management. The medical director of the Deepak Chopra Center in California, Dr. David Simon, found that “the sounds from Tibetan Singing Bowls, as well as chanting, are chemically metabolized into ‘endogenous opiates’, which act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.”
  • Get “in the zone.” Move your brainwave frequencies into the theta zone to induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition. This positively affects our nervous system and engages our relaxation reflex while also inhibiting the pain or stress response. The upper end of the theta brainwave range is what is considered vital to the healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
