What is a Sound Bath?

by Tom Toher

Imagine being immersed in beautiful sounds that are healing for your body, mind and spirit. A Sound Bath is a wonderful experience in sound and vibration. Everything in the Universe, including our body, is composed of energy. All energy is in a constant state of vibration. Everything that vibrates produces a frequency and therefore a sound. Every organ and every cell in our body vibrates at a particular frequency and produces its own unique sound. Water is a powerful carrier for sound and vibration. As the human body is made up of over 70% water we can understand that sound and vibration can effect us at a cellular level.

During a Sound Bath you will experience deep relaxation and a profound sense of peace and well-being. You will experience the healing power of Tibetan Singing Bowls, Gongs, Ocean Drum, Koshi chimes and Voice. The healing frequencies and vibrations will wash away all your stress, tension, and cares.

In setting up the Sound Bath Tom creates a comfortable, safe space where your body can reach deep levels of relaxation, your mind becomes calm and peaceful as the thoughts begin to slow down, allowing deep healing to take place on all levels.

At the end there is a period of deep silence which allows your body to absorb and process the sounds and vibrations. There is also time for those who would like to share their experiences. Once you experience your first sound bath you will want to repeat the experience many times!

Some of the benefits of having regular Sound Baths are as follows:

  • Reduces Stress.

  • Promotes deep relaxation.

  • Reduces anxiety.

  • Lowers blood pressure.

  • Promotes deeper sleep.

  • Balances both hemispheres of the brain.

  • Induces a meditative state.

  • Cells receive a sonic massage.

  • Cleanses negative energy and emotions.

  • Helps to connect with your higher self.

  • Increases vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation.

  • Removes blockages and toxins.

  • Strengthens the immune system.

  • Helps to release and clear old self-limiting patterns of behaviour, habits and ways of thinking that no longer serve us and are harmful to our health.
