Then, at the end of the 19th century, researchers focused on proving the connection between sound and healing. For example, Susan Paul, a shamanic energy healer and crystal therapist from The Den in La Brea, uses a black tourmaline bowl that she says helps eliminate negative energies. This creates an immersive sound that fills the room and the body and is intended to help people relax and let go of stress, anxiety, or other worries and worries. Despite claims that sound bathing is ancient, the practice that exists today may have emerged from contemporary Western or New Age spiritualism.
Before a sound bath, these study participants tended to rate their pain higher than afterwards.
Do sound baths really work?
A traditional sound bath uses a variety of Tibetan singing bowls, a type of instrument that emits different sounds based on the vibrations produced by a mallet. In some cases (and with lots of practice), sound baths have been found to act as a catalyst for more than just relaxation. A sound bath is meant to put you in a deep state of meditation, but you don’t need any meditation experience to try it out. Only a few studies have examined sound baths or the use of singing bowls, but what exists suggests that the practice may offer some health benefits.
