What is a Sound Bath?
Sound immersions may transport a person to a state of self-healing. With alleged therapeutic effects, gongs are believed to be ‘useful for relieving mild-moderate anxiety, stress and pain on the physical, mental and emotional levels and used as a tool for deep relaxation and meditation.’
Sound baths are purported to produce positive physiological responses in a listener as it is believed that ‘sound vibrations act to clear channels of transport within the cell, facilitating the movement of energy across the cell membrane and making it easier for cells to receive nourishment.’
