Gong Bath: A Beginner's Guide

Are you looking to make a joyful investment in your body, mind and spirit? You’ve come to the right place! 


Gong baths are a gateway into meditation and a deeply relaxing state, one that we are going to introduce you to today. Read on for more information about this warm and friendly sound healing service! 


What is a gong bath? 

The gong is a truly exciting and energising instrument, that will help you build and accomplish your earthly, spiritual and physical goals. During our sessions, the tones from the gong will help you marshal and direct your energy. 


Gong baths are a way of relaxing, calming and de-stressing as you bathe in the harmonics of the gongs. The gongs create overtones which are healing and balancing, working on numerous levels – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. It’s a wonderfully easy way to access a deeply relaxing therapy, whilst laying down on a yoga mat.


Why is it linked to meditation? 

The gong is a gateway into meditation because the sound vibrations of the gong can change the brain waves into Theta state. 


You are commonly in the Theta state during the early stages of sleep, as you are waking up, whilst you are dreaming, during periods of enhanced creativity, as well as deep relaxation and meditation. 


In some circumstances, you may also go deeper and slip into Delta – the state of sleep, complete relaxation and rejuvenation!
