Crystal Singing Bowls, the gong and other sound vibration instruments have an incredible calming effect on the central nervous system because the receptors of our cells respond INSTANTLY to frequencies. Sound frequencies can change the physical, emotional and spiritual structures of our bodies.
Our bodies are an electric concert of pulsating vibrational frequencies and dynamic rhythmic patterns that move with our emotions and shift with each thought affecting our physical bodies.
This sound is so abstract, so unique that the human mind is unable to associate it with anything familiar, it has to surrender. In this state of ‘surrender’ the healing takes place, the stress is melted away, worries vanish, and often a deeper awareness of self rises up where one feels a connection to larger aspects of themselves.
A regular soundbath practice can transform your response to stress by re-training your relaxation response. Autonomic systems start to settle, your breathing slows down, your heart rate drops, your body temperature sinks and all these amazing neurotransmitters such as dopamine and endorphins are produced to let you quickly sink into a deep and blissful state of relaxation. Your busy mind will start to slow down and finally drift off into place of release, ease and deeper levels of consciousness. Your body sinks deeper as you relax, and you meet a stillness and calm that is free of anxiety, tension and in many cases, discomfort or pain.
When at peace, you are more healthy, your mind works better, you are more emotionally stable, and you have more access to higher energies and Spirit. The more this becomes the norm, the more powerful you are in all areas of your life.
Medical studies report sound vibration has significant positive impacts with those struggling with stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, chronic pain, and other chronic conditions.
A 20 min. session of stillness, listening to the gong and crystal singing bowls has been stated to be equivalent to 8 hours of the deepest night’s sleep. It essentially re-calibrates your mind and body...in a perfect state of harmony and well-being.
Organizations have POWERFUL post meetings after a soundbath. Friends and groups have GREAT bonding....

Extract: Vibroacoustic therapy is a new sound technology that uses audible sound vibrations to reduce symptoms, invoke relaxation, and alleviate stress. This technology is developed based on the recognition that external vibration can influence body function. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of vibroacoustic therapy. Implications for nurses include investigating the possibilities of vibroacoustic therapy in various nursing settings to promote patient well-being and improve the therapeutic environment.
KEY WORDS: music, relaxation, sound therapy, vibroacoustic
