Sound Baths

💕 Our next Soundbath is Friday 26th April '24 @6.45pm 💕

Everything has a vibrational frequency, including ourselves, so it makes sense that sound frequencies impact how we feel. That's why particular songs and types of music often bring about specific types of emotions from us. Sound healing, which is an ancient healing technique that uses tonal frequencies to bring the body into a state of vibrational balance and harmony, plays upon this as well.

So, how does it work?

During a sound bath/gong bath you'll typically lie down on the floor or a yoga mat, perhaps snuggle up with a soft blanket, and simply listen as I play a variety of instruments and you "bathe" in the soothing sounds and vibrations. The sound frequencies then slows down brain waves to a deeply restorative state which activates the body's own system of self-healing. Sound healing is an ancient practice and you'll find some form of it in every culture on Earth, ancient and modern.

In the sound baths I use a variety of crystal bowls, gongs, Tibetan bowls, various types of drum - thunder, hang, frame and a very beautiful authentic rainstick. Each instrument serves a different purpose but all help to release tension in the body, helping to shift you into the parasympathetic nervous system, as we shift into the PNS we're helping our mind and body to naturally, gently release, repair and heal.

*Of course, sound baths alone aren’t intended to treat any serious health conditions, but they have been proven to contribute to mental health benefits.

What are the benefits of sound healing?

1. It's incredibly relaxing

Deep relaxation is one of the most significant and universal benefits of sound therapy and is said to permeate our system and returning it back to equilibrium and harmony, so if you take nothing else away from a sound bath session, relaxation on its own is worth it. With our busy lives and so much going on in the world, we can all use some!


2. It can help clear energetic blockages

Some people experience deep healing during sound therapy as the sound vibrations open, clear, balance and release stuck energy. 

As the body accepts the sounds a healing happens, you may feel physical sensations like tingling in your hands or feel or a sense of being hot or cold, if this happens just breathe into it, release into your breath. You may feel emotions, let them happen too.

3. It boosts your health

It's a fact!

"Research has already demonstrated that sound healing can be incredibly beneficial when working with [a variety of] patients," .

Benefits can include improved sleep, reduction of chronic pain and blood pressure, lowered cholesterol, and a decreased risk of heart disease (Although, for professional help with these ailments of course please see a certified medical practitioner.)

4. It supports mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being

It can also help to aid healing on mental and emotional levels. "Sound healing helps reduce stress, anxiety and depression". "It balances and clears the mind, and leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well-being, calm, and happiness."

What can I expect from a sound bath?

As with most alternative healing modalities and meditative practices, everyone's experience is different, and new things may come up in each session. Most people will feel very relaxed and peaceful during a sound healing; some might have visualisations, receive creative downloads, or have an emotional breakthrough.

Others may go to a state in which you are not quite awake and not quite asleep. It often feels like you're floating peacefully through time and space, others may emerge from a sound bath feeling more wired than blissed out. Again, each experience is unique and nothing is right or wrong.

The price of a group soundbath is £15pp pre paid
