Sound healing is a practice that uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) in order to relax your mind and body. Some proponents also believe it can relieve certain ailments, including anxiety and insomnia. Sound healers (often called “sounders”) say that it works by lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, and reducing respiratory rates.
How it's done:
A sound healing meditation is both a passive and participatory experience. The passive aspect is that you become more relaxed by laying down and slowing your breath. By doing this, you prepare yourself to become the receiver of sound. It's in this place of stillness that you participate by becoming more open and aware of each sound that comes in. Sound helps create the pathway to this place of stillness the same as a mantra helps you to arrive at the still point of meditation. Practitioners like to point out that sound healing sessions vary greatly: Some may use singing bowls from Tibet or Japan, others use tuning forks, or gongs, or bells, or crystal bowls, or a combination of these instruments. Each session is for a duration of 1 hour and is conducted in a group setting.
