Sound Bath Gong Bath

Join the Holistic Therapy Rooms for a Sound Bath or otherwise known as a Gong Bath which is a magical and relaxing journey of sound healing using Gongs, Singing Bowls and other sound instruments from South Woodford, East London.

Allow your mind and body to relax and switch off as the sound resonates through you invoking a deeper more relaxed state.

The gong is a magical and sacred instrument used in parts of Asia for religious and ceremonial events. In the sound baths, we will be using gongs for relaxation. As the Gong is struck, the sound blossoms and resonates through the body at a cellular level. The sound also stimulates the Alpha and Theta brainwaves invoking a meditative, dream like or  sleep like state.

The Sound Bath will include a short guided visualisation at the start.

Sound Baths/ Gong Baths will be held on a monthly basis in a group setting with advance booking as places are limited.

Benefits of a Sound Bath or Gong Bath:

  • Helps to quieten the mind or to bring about releases to help you process your thoughts.
  • You may notice that you have a big sigh during a sound bath or gong bath which is a sign of a release.
  • Can help to release emotional blockages thereby giving a clearing effect.

What will you need to bring to a Sound Bath?

In a Sound bath, Gong Bath you will find it more comfortable to lay down.  You will need to bring a Yoga mat, or reclining chair or similar to lie on and a throw/sleeping bag and cushion for your warmth and comfort. You may also wish to bring an eye mask and then close your eyes and allow the sound journey to commence. You may also wish to bring a bottle of water to help ground yourself after the event. Chairs are available for those unable to lay down.

April – Please arrive  between 4.40pm – 4.55pm for a prompt start.

***In May 2019, we’re embarking on an exciting change to the Sound Bath format which will lengthen to a 2 hour session include a Drum Journey plus a Cacao ceremony before the Sound bath itself.

Cacao is gentle plant medicine used for her heart opening properties. We’ll be using ceremonial grade Cacao and focusing on the heart chakra in the May session. However if you wish to join the session and not take part in the drinking of the Cacao, then that is absolutely fine.

** June – September 2019, weather dependant, the Outdoor Summer Sound Bath Series will commence in Epping Forest, Chingford. This will be 90 minute session to include a drum journey before the Sound Bath commences.  Please note that if the ground is damp, or rain is forecasted, the event will move to an indoor location in South Woodford which will be communicated in the week of the Sound Bath.
