Gong Bath / Sound Healing

Benita Yoga, gong bath BarkingWhat is the sound healing? How does it work?

Every sound is a vibration and this vibration touches each and every cell of our body. We don’t perceive sound only with the ears, but also with cells in our body.
Stress reduction is one of the most important results of receiving sound therapy. It is the underlying cause of many physical conditions and it melts away with ease when you are bathed in the ocean of sound healing vibrations. And maybe we are so comforted by vibration and sound because as humans, our first experiences within the womb were known and felt as vibration (e.g., our mother’s heartbeat and voice). The fact is that all matter vibrates and the human body is no different.

Many ancient traditions recognized vibration and sound as an important method for returning to balance and healing. Some of the ways these traditions have used sound and vibration include: music, chanting, prayer, toning, and the use of instruments such as drums, bells, singing bowls, gongs, and wind instruments. Now with help of great thinkers and scientists we are returning to this lost knowledge and have many tools available these days to understand and explain the potential of sound, vibrations and frequencies.
Sound waves move through water at least 5 times more efficiently than through the air. Human body is over 65% water. This makes our body a really receptive vessel for sound vibrations. Scientists around the world continue their studies on the effects of sound vibrations and more positive effects are being found. (No negative effects found yet by the way 🙂
– Stress Reduction, Deep Relaxation
– Increased Sleep Quality & Sense of Calm
– Reduced Pain & Anxiety
– Lower Blood Pressure
– Increased Circulation, Stronger Immune System
– Self-Regeneration, Shortened Healing Period
– Balanced Both Hemispheres of the Brain
– Blockages and Toxins removed
– Soothed, Purified and Harmonised Emotions and Feelings
– Increased Vital Energy Flow, Creativity, Intuition and Motivation

and the list goes on and on…….. 🙂

It is difficult to describe the experience of receiving the sound bath as it is very personal and may change every time. Through sound you simply get into the feeling body, through the feeling tones which connect you directly with your heart, skipping the mind, allowing whatever needs to happen for you, to happen in this very moment.  This is one side of the experience, but there are many other layers or levels that can be experienced.  You will simply experience whatever is most needed in this very moment.

What is Gong Bath?

Gong Bath is a submersion in the ocean of sound… no physical water or bathing suit involved! All you do is lye comfortably on a mat and close your eyes. Like during the relaxation after a Yoga class. Gong Player will create the soundtrack and you submerge in the deep ocean of sound, your mind, body and soul is bathed with the tones of the Gong and other healing instruments. The aim is to go into a deep state of relaxation, taking you to a space of non-ego or neutrality, a space of bliss where the body’s natural healing process begins…
