What is Sound Healing?

Gong & Sound Healing

Quantum physics has proven that everything has vibration, whether it’s a person, car, tree, a chair or a planet.  When we use sound coupled with intention we can direct sound vibration to raise the body’s vibrational frequency.  Gong and Sound Healing Therapy combines powerful vibration and tones to induce an immediate relaxed state.  The induction of the sound waves with soothing ambient tones is such a strong application that clients report effects ranging from a meditative state to deep relaxation.

How Does Gong & Sound Healing Work?​

It affects the physical nervous system, not just hearing it through the ears, but the sensation of feeling it on the skin.  Sound travels and the body picks up the sound.  Sometimes it’s called a gong bath.  It’s a cleansing process for the subconscious mind.  It’s effortless; that’s why a lot of people are drawn to it.  The sound of the gong reaches the body on a cellular level, encouraging integrated healing of body, mind, and spirit, and the more gong sessions an individual  attends, the better the results. 

How is it Different from Other Types of Sound Healing?​

It’s the combination of overtones and undertones.  They make new undertones and overtones, so there’s a branching out of sound. It’s not like music that’s following a melody.  The logical, analytical part of the brain can’t figure it out.  It allows for that part of the mind to completely disengage and a person to connect to their spiritual self.  That’s what the gong is really good at, helping people to bridge from physical to meditative states.  During a Gong Bath, sound washes over you gently and creates a healing resonance – sound massage – in, and around, the body.

How Does a Gong Bath Work?​

Everything you see around you is vibrating at a frequency, whether we hear it or not.  Sound frequencies can affect us on a cellular level, influence how we feel and function.  Sound healing practices, such as a Gong Bath, uses vibrational sound and frequency to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace and well being.  Essentially you go into a deep state of meditation and relaxation and then the real work begins while you get bathed in the gentle sound waves.  Many people fall asleep and wake up feeling like they’ve had eight hours of sleep! 

To greatly amplify the healing effectiveness of a Gong Bath all you need to add is your intention before a session.  Adding positive intentions to your everyday living is a holistic way of thinking and even though you may not believe in such things, just give it a try and you might be surprised by the results.​
