What Are The Benefits Of A Sound Bath?

What Benefit Might I Get From Sound Baths?

What you get from a sound bath will depend on how you engage. For some, this is a welcome experience into new vistas. They will relish the ideas of energy healing, chakras, meridians, and so on. For others this is about sound waves that impact human biological processes. 


Helping a person relax often leads to healing in other areas… whether mental, physical or spiritual. 

Lying on a yoga mat or sitting in a comfortable chair the recipient may even use a blanket to get more comfortable. The sound for the sound bath comes from one or more instruments, chosen for a desired effect.

Some may wish to use sound for energy healing in the tradition of Ayurveda. Others might apply Traditional Chinese Medicine’s 5 tones. And still others just go with what seems right or a very prescriptive set of frequencies.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

In one study, sound therapy has been used successfully on people with SAD in a Chinese nursing home. The study relied on the five tones in Traditional Chinese Music.
