Harmonizing Energy Hypnotherapy and Reiki
A Sound Bath is a meditative experience where one gets immersed in calming sounds and vibrations.
The Healing Power of Sound Baths
A peaceful dip in the tub isn’t the only kind of bath that might be beneficial to your health.
Waves of relaxing, echoing sound from crystal bowls, tibetan bowls and percussion instruments, sometimes known as a “sound bath,” may aid with stress, exhaustion, and depression symptoms.
Because stress is linked to other disorders such as diabetes and heart disease, sound baths may be an effective preventative technique for lowering the risk of chronic conditions as well.
Although research into this area is still being developed, studies have shown that a sound bath may boost your mood and relieve stress in your body, among other things.
Let us examine what we know (and don’t know) about sound baths.
Join us on a musical journey via the soothing tones of crystal bowls.
Sound Bath Origins
Sound baths, according to some, may cause a phenomenon known as “sound healing.” For thousands of years, many civilizations have used sound healing as a home cure.
A sound bath would often include resting in a reclined posture after participating in yoga or meditation techniques.
Following that, a sound bath provider would utilize one or more instruments to generate calming, overlapping vibrations.

How Sound Baths Work
Sound baths involve a variety of sounds. Wendy uses crystal singing bowls tuned to a specific frequency. The bowls produce sound vibrations when played correctly. In theory, these vibrations allow you to be guided further into a state of contemplation or relaxation, turning off your body’s fight-or-flight response.
During the session, you’ll be guided by Wendy and the sound of the crystal bowls, as well tuning forks. Expect to be immersed in a full-body listening experience, which will help you to relax and even feel like you’re in a state of meditation. At the conclusion of a session, you will be taken back to a state of consciousness before the sound bath session ends.
The origin of the healing power of sound baths is attuned to 432 Hz and it’s quite special as a therapeutic technique. According to the theory’s proponents, the number 432 possesses unique features.
If you Google “432 Hz,” you’ll discover an abundance of resources, articles, and YouTube videos discussing the tuning A = 432 Hz and its alleged therapeutic and relaxing powers.
The 432 Hz tuning is presumably set to natural vibrations toward various mystical reasons, such as Mount Meru having 432 Buddha statues or being tied to the placement of chakras.

Sound baths may aid in the treatment of mental health issues such as sadness and anxiety.
In a 2016 research study, 62 participants were asked to rate their moods before and after taking a sound bath. The researchers discovered that following the treatment, stress, anxiety, and bad emotions dropped dramatically.
In a 2018 research study involving 60 patients, 30 were invited to listen to Tibetan singing bowl music before surgery, whereas the other 30 were given headphones with no music.
The study discovered that when participants wore headphones with music, their heart rate and other vital signs that signal anxiety improved.
Improvements in troubled mood, tension, hostility, and bewilderment were seen in study participants following a sound bath using Tibetan singing bowls, according to a 2020 research review that reviewed four investigations.
Though there still needs to be more research done in this field, it’s a growing practice with so many benefits to receive, even after just one session.
Participants in the previously stated 2016 research were also questioned whether they were in pain and how they rated their discomfort on a scale of 1 to 5.
These research participants rated their discomfort greater before the sound bath than they did afterward. More study is required to determine if this trend in pain reduction is clinically significant.
Physical symptoms such as blood pressure and heart rate improved in the 2020 evaluation. However, the analysis noted that further research is required before concluding that sound baths have these benefits on the majority of individuals.

What About Tuning Forks?
Did you know that tuning forks can also be used for overall wellness? A tuning fork is a metal fork with two prongs that may be used as an acoustic resonator. This tool has traditionally been used to tune musical instruments. Tuning forks function by emitting a precise wave pattern that corresponds to a musician’s instrument. But now, it’s making waves in the healing space.
Tuning Fork Therapy, which Wendy uses as part of her practice, may be used in two methods in general. As meditation assistance, for example, or as a fast approach to relieve worry, tension, or bad thoughts. Tuning Forks, on the other hand, are used by trained tuning fork therapists such as Wendy who provide comprehensive therapy for a number of ailments.
Tuning Fork Therapy, in addition to being a very successful type of treatment in and of itself, may also be a tremendous aid in the integration of other therapeutic techniques such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, and psychotherapy. The power of sound to engage with the more subtle structures of our bodies may aid in the release of blocked energy on many levels.
There was a study conducted by the National Institute of Health which revealed that music interventions may serve as an effective tool for treating depression. The results of this research indicated that individuals who were suffering from various forms of depressive disorders could benefit from listening to their favorite tunes and songs rather than taking antidepressants.
This is where sound therapy plays a significant role in one’s well-being. The tuning fork is also tuned to that special and healing 432 Hz.
A sound bath is a contemplative technique that is suitable for the majority of individuals.
It may be simpler to master than other meditation techniques since it does not need much discipline or patience to do so – all you have to do is listen
Since relaxation is the primary result of this technique, it may be worth a try as a supplementary add-on to your therapy. It’s a safe method for just about anyone to try, so consider attending a session to see how it works for you.
All in all, it’s no secret that the healing power of sound baths affects our minds in unique ways, but there are certain frequencies that seem to have more of an impact compared to others. That being said, as an expert herself, Wendy will facilitate the best sound therapy for you.
