What is a sound bath?

Sound has the power to change not just our emotional and spiritual wellbeing, but our physical wellbeing too. Sound baths offer the intention of healing mind, body and emotions, as well as the transformation of consciousness, itself a path to wellbeing.

When conducted with relaxation in mind therapeutic sound sessions can reduce blood pressure and heart rate and relax the autonomic nervous system. Furthermore, the session can slow down our brainwaves, taking them from an awake and alert state to a more altered, deeply meditative state. The result is a lovely, drifty feeling, like the one we might feel just before we are about to go to sleep, which brings health benefits that enable us to be better able to respond openly to the demands of everyday life.

What happens during a Sound Bath?

The experience begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and an eye mask. After a few minutes of guided focus on the breath, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession. The sounds are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including crystal singing bowls, planetary gongs, himalayan bowls, tuning forks, chimes and percussion instruments.

These sounds have the potential to relax, realign and restore you on all levels and all you need to do is get comfortable and be open to absorbing them as they take you on a magical journey. You are free to relax and drift off where the sound takes you.

I have compiled a post with tips about how to make the most of your sound journey, please take a look here.

Our session was so deeply relaxing.

I literally feel like a new woman!

Wow. Just wow. 

I feel like I floated out of your house so not sure I properly thanked you. I’m gliding my way through the day.

You’re a legend!

I've never experienced anything like that.

It's so interesting and I will definitely be back for more!

I feel like I've had a weeks sleep!

I have never been to anything spiritual or meditative before, the sound bath last week was my first tentative step and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was at my first sound bath with you on Friday. Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it, and how much I needed it. I was quite stressed out, had a week of no time to myself, one activity leading to another, and felt detached. The sound bath grounded and calmed me, and I had a great night's sleep that night....feeling refreshed the next day. 

The sound baths have been a wonderful break from thinking and often take me to the most amazing visualisations walking through golden sunrise or sunset cornfields, or in forests and through snowy lamp lit villages, complete with all the sounds and smells, quite a vivid and beautiful experience. Thank you. 

That was more relaxing than a spa day!

"I have hearing aids and it’s weird because when I have them in, I hear the sounds around me but when I take them out it’s like the sound's IN my head. Love that!"

When you sink into a Sound Bath and guide your awareness to your listening, you allow your brain waves to slow, shifting from a more active state to a more relaxed state, or even a dreamlike state. 

The sounds introduced during a Sound Bath are an invitation into a deeper state of consciousness, an opportunity to unplug from external stimuli and to gain perspective on what’s going on within you. The goal of the experience is to invite deep rest and relaxation, and explore self-inquiry and self-discovery.

Which one is for me?

If you're new to sound bathing or want a regular fix then the monthly community sound baths at Mountsorrel, Seagrave and Waltham on the Wolds are probably a good choice for you. These accommodate up to 25pp and are a 90minute break from every day life.

If you're keen to go a little deeper and explore the potential of sound more, then perhaps the longer, richer, smaller circles of the Wheel of the Year Celebrations or the collaborations of Acu-Gong (Acupuncture with Sound) or Elevation (Cacao, Spirit Dance and Sound) are for you...

Wheel of the Year Celebrations

The ‘Turning of the Wheel’ describes the movement through the passage of the year - the Wheel of the Year - in native European cosmology. The eight ‘hinges’ of the wheel mark the significant seasonal shifts in Earth-based, Elemental, Lunar and Solar energies, that provide gateways for deep spiritual practice and are traditionally engaged with through ritual.

When we engage with these potent cyclical gateways we reconnect with nature and our place within the whole. It’s a beautiful way to deep dive beneath the frantic, endless pace of survival and striving and take a deep pause to re-set.

These evenings combine ceremony, ritual, meditation, reflection and sound - each one is curated to the Sabbat.

Personal Sound Healing

90 minute personal integral sound healing sessions are available near Barrow Upon Soar in Leicestershire.

Integral sound healing integrates modern science, ancient wisdom and the healing arts. Healing with sound has been widely used throughout the world for thousands of years. It is a form of vibrational medicine that helps to balance all aspects of being human - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
When using sound intentionally within a therapeutic context it can balance the nervous system, help reduce stress and shift emotional blocks, many of which manifest as physical ailments and dis-eases.
The vibrations from sound healing instruments penetrate down to a cellular level (especially when placed directly on the body) relaxing tense muscles and tissues. This allows better blood flow and lymphatic circulation to aid detoxification. Pain and inflammation can be relieved and regulation of the autonomic nervous system can be achieved. Sound healing has the potential to strengthen the vagus nerve and activate the parasympathetic nervous system helping recipients feel calmer and more balanced.
On a mental and emotional level it allows one to surrender and let go of negative thought patterns which no longer serve. As we become witness to sensation and thought we achieve a new perspective and access greater possibilities and opportunities. On a spiritual level, it can both help reconnect to our true selves and also know we are not separate and thus re-connect to a greater whole.
