What is a Sound Bath?


Sound baths are therapeutic and meditative experiences where the participants “bathe” in the sounds and vibrations produced by different sound healing instruments such as: 

  • Gongs
  • Crystal singing bowls
  • Tibetan singing bowls 
  • Drums
  • Chimes
  • Shakers
  • Tuning forks
  • Voice
  • … and much more

Through these sounds and vibrations, the mind enters into a deeply meditative and relaxed state, bringing about healing at all levels of our being: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The beauty of sound baths is that each note you hear in a sound bath has a purpose. It’s more than just a string of beautiful sounds tied together - a powerful healing intention is behind every single note and sequence!

As an extremely effective form of meditation, sound baths are an excellent way to let go of any worries and sink into a deeply serene experience. Adding sound to the meditation experience can take your relaxation to a new level!

The Benefits of Sound Baths

How many of us sometimes feel anxious, stressed, and burned out? A lot!

We might even find ourselves holding on to negative energy that makes us feel heaviness in our hearts, but sound baths allow us to let go of all that and return to a natural state of calm and well-being.

Some of the main sound bath benefits include:

  • Calming your body and mind
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Increased focus and clarity
  • Decreased tension and fatigue 
  • Better mood and reduced negative thoughts and emotions 
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced muscle and joint pain
  • Lower heart rate 
  • … and so much more

How do you feel after a sound bath? - Well, there’s a wide range of different emotions that can come up, from blissful to spaced out. But most people feel a sense of relaxation, peace.

Sound baths are much easier to participate in than many other meditative practices because they don’t require a lot of discipline or patience to learn how to do it - all you have to do is listen.

Your Healing Voice

Your healing voice not only enables you to speak, tell great stories, and share your emotions, thoughts, problems, and successes with the world, but it also helps to boost your immune system!

Many of the effects we can achieve with various sound healing instruments can also be experienced through the voice. It can often be more powerful and transformative to work on ourselves with our healing voice than with any other external instruments! 

The Power Of Your Healing Voice

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using our healing voice in a focused and intentional way.

When we’re engaged in singing, chanting mantras, or vocal toning, our exhalation becomes inevitably longer than the inhalation as we control the amount of breath we release to control our voice. This breathing pattern activates a parasympathetic response in our autonomic nervous system.

Consequently, we feel much more relaxed and can facilitate the functioning of the parasympathetic branch of our nervous system normally associated with nourishment and restoration.

Another great benefit of working with your voice is that it can also serve as a “sound massage” tool. A great way to experience this is to direct the physical vibration of your voice into different areas of your body. This can be done by using different sounds and combining them with variations in volume. 

Ultimately, the most important thing to remember is that our healing voice has the potential to express our intimate self at an emotional and physiological level.
