A sound bath is an immersive, full body, meditative experience you can share with a group or enjoy on your own. More than just sound, you are surrounded by and enveloped in the vibration of the instruments. The vibrational waves traveling throughout the body create a deep feeling of relaxation and peace.
Though studies specifically on sound baths are limited, there is a lot of research that shows the physical and psychological benefits of sound therapy. Here are a few benefits of sound baths, sound healing, and meditation:
Calms your body and mind
Reduces stress and anxiety
Increases focus and clarity
Decreases tension and fatigue
Boosts your mood and reduces feelings of anger
Elevates feelings of spiritual well-being
During the sound bath you will lay or sit in a comfortable position while the sound practitioner plays a combination of metal or crystal singing bowls, gongs, drums, bells, harps or other instruments. The long, reverberating notes of a sound bath will lull you into a meditative state so you can rest, reset, or focus on an intention.
Sound baths are considered safe, but it is good to be aware of a few potential side effects. You may want to avoid going to a sound bath if you’re pregnant because of the vibrations. You should also ask your doctor first if you have epilepsy or if you’re prone to headaches or are especially sensitive to sound. While there are physical and psychological benefits to sound baths, they are a complementary therapy and are not used to treat any disease, illness, or mental condition in and of themselves.
