Sound Bath: An Ancient Wellness Practice Gaining Steam In The West

Ever heard about the sound healing process? People use bubble baths to bust their stress, but there is also the sound bath technique that helps in releasing stress. This relaxing musical presentations method, which predate Christ are scientifically linked with stress reduction. Energy, frequency, and vibrations are the three things that together make the stress relieving process possible.

What Is Sound Bath?

An immersion in the sound waves that can cleanse your soul, is called sound bath. This technique is not something new as Tibetans have been using it since 2,000 years or more, which is now gaining popularity in the West. According to the practitioners, every meditation is different and the number of bowls used can range from 10 to 40.

Also the bowls are selected according to the chakra, or energy meridian system in the body. For example, if someone wants to have a grounding meditation, bowls that primarily resonate the C note are used because it affects that lower chakra while if they are looking for a heart-opening session, bowls that resonate the F note are preferred. If you want to have an idea of how is it in the class, you can view some videos on the internet, but it won't be same as experiencing it in reality.

How Can You Make The Most Of It

The experts in this field, recommend getting there early and getting your body familiar with the atmosphere and clam your breathing. It is also essential to wear something comfortable and easy. Do not forget to remain hydrated as the sound waves carry on water, and the more hydrated you are, the more likely the frequencies will have a penetrating effect.

According to the experts, it is always better to listen to your body instead of restricting it. During the session, if you feel like standing, stand, you feel like yawning, yawn. Let your body do what it wants. The main purpose is to relax and clam your body, so if your mind is diverted, try bringing it back.

Staying in present and not falling asleep is beneficial in this process, as it will allow you to remember any positive tune that you can later hum when in stress or during work, to clam your body. Also, the practitioners claim that most of the people do not fall into a deep sleep, they remain in the lucid dream like state, which is just before falling asleep. This process is to sort of reboot or recalibrate your brains so that you start afresh. It rejuvenates your mind, body, and senses.

Benefits Of Sound Bath

The researchers after a study on this technique, have apparently claimed that Sound Bath is a technique that relaxes your mind probably more than the traditional meditation techniques. They claim that the sound waves affect human nervous system, and decrease the blood pressure.

Also according to a new research, when two tones at slightly different frequencies are played in unison, also known as the binaural beats, are apparently found to reduce anxiety levels, as well as enhance mood states.
