"Music and rythm find their way into the secret places of our soul" - Plato
Sound frequency is the base and creation of all creation, connection, being and living. Sound is frequency and vibration that makes up our entire existence. Everything physical has a resonance that also resonate with the sounds around us. Therefore the sounds we listen to has an impact on our mind, soul and body.
The sound waves
Based on the theory that vibration releases trapped energy that's been stored around the body, this type of massage uses sound waves to produce gentle rhythmic pulsations. These pulsations or vibrations are strategically sent through the body, massaging the cells, working out any stored up tension. Simultaneously, the range of frequencies emitted by the bowls has a calming effect, drawing the brain into the meditative state.
What happens during a sound massage?
Placed directly onto the fully-clothed body, himalayan singing bowls are played using felt mallets, to create a soothing sound and gentle vibration. The bowls are strategically placed around the body, working through the meridian points, sending vibration through the body and creating a flow of sounds and energy which encourages harmonisation and deep relaxation.
