When I first experienced the power of sound in a group Om meditation I was struck by how tangible it was as I felt the sound vibrations we were creating as a group moving around in my body.
I later discovered that sound can actually alter our brainwaves, our consciousness and all the cells in our body.
Sound has been used throughout history by all Shamanic traditions and many cultures all over the world to bring the whole being back in to balance/harmony/resonance/wholeness.
When we become 'ill' you could say it is because our body has stopped resonating harmoniously - like an instrument that is out of tune (according to Rudolph Steiner) and by introducing resonant sound vibrations to the body we can restore balance and harmony. This can be achieved in many ways - toning, chanting, singing, laughing, drumming, tuning forks, singing bowls and ofcourse the gong.

1-1 SOUND THERAPY
In a 1-1 sound session I might use my voice or other sound tools to scan your body to determine where you may require resonant sounds to help restore balance. A session may include the use of tuning forks, singing bowls, drum, flute, voice or a combination, it will also be infused with Reiki energy. There is no set format for a 1-1 sound treatment as everyone is unique. One of the most profound aspects of a sound session is the deep stillness you may feel after the session.
1-1 GONG THERAPY
‘The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind….It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played’ - Yogi Bhajan
The gong is a powerful tool for transformation on all levels. It bathes the entire body in powerful sound vibrations or tones, which can affect you at a cellular level. Pythagoras the Greek mathematician discovered the Harmonic Series, which is a series of tones that reproduce the ratio of Pi or the Golden Mean, also called the Fibonacci Series which is the same ratio as found in the growth spirals of DNA. The gong produces all of these complex tones that are the building blocks of nature and thus communicates with us at all levels of consciousness. When the Gong is played with intention profound healing can occur. The sounds produced by the gong are resonant and also dissonant, which allows for harmony and chaos to be experienced in the mind and this can assist in releasing blockages on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Gong Therapy is a powerful way to shift your energy on every level and can assist in resolving a wide range of issues from sleep problems, depression, anxiety, low energy, enabling you to feel calm, connected, peaceful & balanced
It can be received lying down or in a chair and is often referred to as a 'gong bath' or 'sound bath'. Different sensations may be felt in the body as the sound vibrations clear through the energy channels.
GROUP SOUND SESSIONS
An opportunity to experience the Gong in a group setting is commonly referred to as a 'gong bath' or ‘sound bath’, although I often call it a ‘sound journey’ as that is essentially what happens – the sound takes you on a journey. You lie down and are bathed in a variety of sound vibrations from conch shell, bells, bowls, rattles, drums, flute, the Gong, chimes and are taken on an amazing journey deep within and then enjoy the stillness/silence afterwards. This really is an awesome way to relax and receive healing & balancing on a cellular level.
EXPLORING SOUND WORKSHOPS
These half or full day workshops are a playful exploration of sound which may include body work, breath work, laughing, humming, toning, sacred chants, mantra and a luxurious Gong Bath.
RESTORATIVE/YIN YOGA & SOUND
If you are a Yoga teacher wishing to offer a beautifully unique and deeply relaxing experience to your students then please do get in touch. The combination of Restorative /Yin Yoga and sound is a truly relaxing and rejuvenating session. Typically these sessions run for two hours and I play the Crystal Bowls & Gongs in a nurturing way that supports the Yoga practice which allows the recipients to relax and release deeply on all levels.
