Spiritual Healing {1} ~ Sound Bath/Gong Bath

Sound bath is an ancient sound-healing practice whereby the yogi relaxes in a reclining position – often supported in savasana (corpse pose) – and allows the healing sounds of traditional musical performances to bath over him/her. The music is typically generated by such instruments and methods as singing bowls, gongs, drumming, tuning forks and chanting.

Sound bath is an ancient practice dating back more than 2,000 years with roots in Tibet. It has recently gained popularity in the West as a relaxation technique in conjunction with yoga and meditation.
