Sound Baths

Sound baths are popping up everywhere. Unsurprising given the beauty and benefits of the experience: being bathed in sound as you lay down, relax and listen with your full body.

There’s a lot of variation in what is called a sound bath, but the therapeutic ones use singing bowls and gongs. These instruments create droning sounds which help brain waves slow into Alpha, Theta, and Delta waves, i.e. the subconscious, dream states, and deep relaxation. Studies show they reduce tension, anger, fatigue, and cortisol levels. Other commonly-sighted benefits include: heightened creativity, lucid dreaming, and entering flow state. 

Sound has been used for healing since ancient times, yet sound baths are modern. While gongs are thousands of years old and “Tibetan” singing bowls may or may not be, crystal singing bowls only emerged in the 1990s as a byproduct of the computer industry. Since then, practitioners, and instrument makers have developed and refined the art into medicine.
