Having experienced sound baths every day during training in India and now also virtually at home, I have found that the experience is essentially the same and leads to similar and comparable results. You don’t have to go all out and show up at your local meditation center every day. YouTube is full of easy, guided meditations that you can do anywhere, anytime, and experts like Atwood have their own available too. There are various ways to achieve this, and one effective method is the clever use of vibrations and sound. Atwood uses old Tibetan singing bowls and alchemy bowls made from pure quartz crystal for her sound baths, but you can start a bit smaller.
Are sound baths effective?
Helen Lavretsky said that sound healing and music therapy have become increasingly popular because they are easy to perform. If you’re thinking about creating a sound bath at home, you might think you need to invest in gongs, bowls, and swivel forks, but that can be a lot more accessible. She believes that people could easily incorporate sound baths or a type of relaxing music training into their everyday lives and they would feel relieved. Research on this topic is limited, but there are studies that suggest that a sound bath can improve your mood and release tension in your body, among other things.
