Sound Bath healing session. Relax with a guided meditation and sound bath. Utilizing a variety of instruments: crystal bowls, gong, ocean drum, chimes, tongue drum, allow yourself to sink into the medicine during an hour long bath.
Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, or medicine melodies of various peoples from across the planet, or Pythagoras’s use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.
How does it work?
Sound Baths help to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur).
This same concept is utilized in meditation by regulating the breath, but with sound it's the frequency that is the agent which influences the shift.
