What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is the definition of deep immersion. This is a meditative listening experience where sound is used with the intention of creating a full-body restorative process. The goal is to nourish the mind and body by being bathed in sound waves, which come from traditional instruments, such as singing bowls and gongs, percussion, or even voice.
Being a therapeutic modality, it’s not meant to have a catchy melody to dance or move to. It’s a soothing, yet powerful and carefully curated harmony with a purpose. Balancing the energy is key, for which a focus of the practice is to guide you into letting go of the analytical mind, this is achieved by instead of creating reliable rhythm, creating a symphony with little repetition so there are no elements to get hooked on. Sound baths are a passive practice where all you need to know is to lay down or sit comfortably and receive.
What makes sound baths a unique experience?
As much as sound bathing might use overtone-emitting instruments that coincide with other healing practices such as sound therapy or sound healing, this one, in particular, is always inactive for the attendees. This means it will not involve intuitive movement or flow, it is a purely meditative state that is achieved by stillness and surrender. However, at times simple mantras or chantings can be encouraged.
Recipients can use a blanket and eye mask to enhance the experience. Just at the beginning, there can also be a focus on the breath, in which you may be guided by the facilitator.

The benefits of sound baths
On a mental health level, sound baths are able to ignite a state of harmony and peace in the recipients, which naturally promotes relaxation through life, awareness, and a strong sense of well-being. It can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms, as well as dissipate tension, anger, distress, and confusion. It is possible for some people to experience a visionary or breakthrough moment.
Sound baths can potentially aid in your body’s healing process as well. For example, blood pressure and heart rate might be subject to improvement.
Where does the practice of sound baths come from?
This is a practice that is deep-rooted in the principles of sacred geometry and the teachings of quantum physics. The modality in which sound waves are used for healing derives from ancient traditions and in modern days its properties for development have been proven.
All experience levels welcome.
