With ancient origins winding back thousands of years, a sound bath is typically known as ‘music therapy.’ The principle of a sound bath is resonating with vibrations because the entire universe, from organs in our bodies to the leaves on the trees, is made up of vibrations. As life catches up to us and begins to feel like an endless marathon, the vibratory frequencies in our bodies and minds are disrupted. On a sound bath retreat, ambient song and rhythms are generated using a range of instruments including metal gongs, chimes, drums and Tibetan singing bowls, which originate from the Himalayas, derived from ancient Tibetan Buddhist rituals. By following a sequence, different sound waves are generated by the sound healer, inducing individuals into a quietened, meditative state, switching off thoughts, focusing on each heartbeat and breath, which subsequently harmonises the energy field.
The modern lifestyle can feel like a constant uphill struggle, making it difficult to stay focused and motivated. On a sound bath retreat, let in the beautiful and natural soothing sounds empty and liberate the body and mind, activating and restoring wellbeing. By being immersed in a spectrum of sounds, awash in vibrations, the body will respond by syncing with the frequencies, raising and promoting consciousness. Akin to listening to a feel-good song on the radio, a sound bath retreat aims to use the concept of sound energy derived from ancient practices and rituals to help individuals realign with a personal sense of joy, feel free, content and relaxed.
