Have you ever heard of a Sound Bath or Gong Bath before?
You might know that your brain waves fluctuate between different frequencies when thinking and doing tasks, and when you are relaxing. The vibrations when a gong is played can quickly take you into the Alpha range of frequencies, where you are relaxed yet alert, into the Theta range associated with meditating, learning and memory, and even the Delta frequencies for repairing, regenerating and renewing your cells. Theta and Delta waves are associated with attuning the body to its naturally healthy state.
Watch a clip on YouTube here of the effect of sound vibrations on water, and imagine, if humans really are 60-70% water as experts have suggested, what the effects of sound are on you. You can also see the effects of sound vibrations on sand here. The resonance of the gongs can produce a healing frequency – just watch this clip on the effect on human blood cells after immersion in the vibrations of gongs for just 20 minutes.
You sit on a chair or lay down (strenuous, I know!) as I play one or more gongs, singing bowls or other instruments.
Each experience is unique. Apart from any healing or re-tuning that may or may not take place, it promises to be a relaxing time, and could be a fun story with which to entertain your friends and family.
…in the days that followed it I felt as though I had spent the weekend at a fancy spa!” Diane Hill
The first time I went to a sound bath, I spent my time wondering what would happen next and when I was going to ‘get it’. Nothing seemed to happen for me, although everyone else was leaving in a state of heavenly bliss! It took a couple of goes for me to get out of the way of my own mind – I learned to relax mindfully by focusing on my breathing as we started and surrender to the sounds.
Public Sound Baths
Sound Baths open to all – arrive in plenty of time to get comfortable before the start. No admittance after starting to avoid disrupting your experience. I recommend you to bring your own mat, blanket and pillow, and a bottle of water if you desire. Upright chairs will be provided if you’d rather sit. If you have a different/dis-ability, please let me know ahead of time. The gong sound bath is not recommended for people suffering from tinnitus, HSP, and in the first trimester of pregnancy. Please consult your doctor. Next one on the events page. You can also book me for your gathering/organisation. (Prices start from £150. Concessions available.)
Private Sound Baths
Private Sound Baths – I can comfortably accommodate two people for your very own special sound bath in Hilperton, near Trowbridge. Everything is provided – futons, blankets, cushions, water, even eye-masks – all you need to do is to relax into your own special experience.
Regular sound bathing is highly recommended. On a personal note, in the last year, I have had no major flare-ups of arthritis with regular sound immersion. Recently, a three week break from the gongs meant an increase in knee pain again!
Email or call 07989 404112 to book.
£50 per session (not per person) or you can have your very own private session every month for a year with our new individual annual membership for £300
