About the Event
A Sound Bath is as scientifically sound as it is mysterious. It is as other-worldly as it is logical. It requires nothing but receptivity in order to be fully experienced, but it must be experienced in order to be understood. First up: gong baths and sound baths are in no way watery. No tub involved. The bath is figurative. Just to put that out there if you assumed that this burgeoning wellness trend involved any type of physical cleansing.
Instead, gong bathing and sound bathing harness the resonance and meditative effect of gongs, singing bowls (think running your finger along the rim of a glass and you’ve got the idea), tuning forks and/or other instruments that are rich in “harmonic frequencies” to help you to calm down and chill out in the crazy frantic world that we’re scurrying about in.
The Science of Sound Healing and Gong Baths
Sound Healing has a scientific basis in neuroscience and physics, but there are still many aspects that seem to defy explanation. Our minds and emotional experiences alter our physical state, and in turn, our physical state alters our emotions and mind. Yet only in the past few decades, with the advent of functional MRIs, have we been able to scientifically document that mind-body connection. So, even if the only benefit of a gong bath was relaxation, it is a scientifically valid healing modality. at ENERGYBODi Unit C , Clarke Holme St, Burnley Road east Waterfoot BB4 9HY Sunday 28th February 4.30-5.30pm £10
