What Is A Sound Bath?

What Is A Sound Bath?

In general, a sound bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. These waves are produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and even the human voice itself.

More important than the what is the WHY?

This meditative practice invokes the parasympathetic nervous system which slows the heart rate, lowers blood pressure and calms the brain and body.

Sound baths can shift the brain from its beta wave, or normal consciousness, to the theta wave, or relaxed consciousness, to the delta wave, a state of deep relaxation where healing of the mind and body can occur.

SUD can disrupt the brain’s ability to shift into this state, so sound healing is an immensely helpful tool in the healing of the disease of addiction.
