When a person’s body is in contact with the embedded speakers, the music is sent from the source into the transducers and is then perceived by the body as a vibration and heard by the ears as sound. A few months ago, I was buzzing around a mall in Gurugram when I came across a poster that read “Sound Bath Healing.” Jan Coe from Whole Notes Harmony uses combinations of many of these ideas in her sound therapy. She is quick to point out that it is not a licensed music therapy practice. It is used in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, hospices, spas, and centers for massage therapy, sound therapy, alternative health, yoga, physical therapy, and psychiatric treatment, as well as by individual therapists.
What does a sound bath do to your body?
Thus, a sound bath not only reduces stress and anxiety by triggering a state of relaxation, but also has physiological benefits. Dim the lights, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and immerse yourself in the sounds. It is an acoustic sound healing journey that allows the listener to enter a meditative state and feel calm, relaxed, grounded, and focused. A sound bath is usually a way to manage anxiety, calm the nervous system, and banish all ideas and thoughts from your awareness as you connect with your body.
Some people prefer individual sound baths where they can have complete control of the session, while others enjoy the community of a group experience.
