What are sound baths?
Sound healing is rooted in the idea that certain sound frequencies correspond to specific energy centers or chakras in the body.
Sound baths are a way to harness and balance your body’s energy, bringing about deep relaxation, bliss, and healing.
A sound bath usually involves lying down on a mat, fully relaxed, while listening to special immersive and resonant music. The idea is to immerse you in sound such that you almost feel enveloped in it. As your breathing and heart rate slows, the sound waves clear energetic blocks, creating a relaxing and therapeutic effect on your body and mind.
A variety of instruments are used in sound baths, including:
Crystal singing bowls
Tibetan singing bowls
How do sound baths work for healing?
Sound baths work with the logic that any body imbalance corresponds with an imbalance in an energy center. The baths reset those centers and restore the proper flow of energy in the body, which clears your subconscious mind and leads to healing.
Specific frequencies are required for certain areas of the body. As such, the therapist will use a tone and sound frequency known to correspond to healing in that particular area of the body.
