Does gong therapy work?
Gong meditation is a unique type of sound practice that uses therapeutic gong sounds and vibrations to induce healing.

Many alternative health clinics offer sound therapies, such as gong meditation, to treat various ailments. The acoustic stimuli of the gong bath lead to entrainment, a form of positively altered brainwave frequencies.

What is the purpose of a gong?
Gongs can have flat or deep edges (kettle gongs) and can be embossed (dimpled in the middle) or unembossed. Gongs that produce a specific, specific sound are usually played along with other gongs with a specific tone in an environment such as a traditional gamelan or an innovative rock concert such as the Grateful Dead. Sculptural gongs (also known as gong sculptures) are gongs that serve the dual purpose of being a musical instrument and a work of fine art. In most forms, it is struck in the middle with a mallet covered with felt or leather, creating a sound of a definite or indefinite pitch.
