Whether you’ve tried it or not, sound therapy via singing bowls or gong baths are becoming increasingly popular in Hong Kong. Often used during meditation or yoga, their benefits include the ability to:
Reduce stress and anxiety significantly
Lower anger and blood pressure
Improve circulation and increases blood flow
Deep relaxation and pain relief
Increase mental and emotional clarity
Promote stillness, happiness and well-being while stimulating the immune system
Gong therapy is similarly therapeutic as the sound, which increases in volume and intensity over time, vibrates throughout our bodies to modify our frequencies and brainwaves. These modified levels are associated with feelings of creativity, relaxation, deep meditation, hypnosis and REM sleep (see Mindworks for more info).
It’s hard to explain, but the sound of a reverberating singing bowl or gong is incredibly therapeutic and you really have to experience it for yourself.
