What Is Sound Bowl Healing And Why Should You Try It?

Explore the healing benefits of sound bowls for the body, mind, and spirit.

Ever since ancient times, holistic health practitioners have relied on the power of sound healing to quiet the mind, elevate their consciousness, and create greater alignment between the body and mind. Now, sound bowl healing has become more popular than ever before, with many incorporating this age-old tool into their daily meditation and yoga practices.

But what exactly is sound bowling healing, and, more importantly, why should you try it? In this blog, we’ll explore the complex nature of sound healing, its many health benefits, and how you can tap into this life-changing experience for yourself, either at home or as part of an immersive wellness journey. 

What Are Sound Bowls?

Sound bowls, also known as singing bowls, are ancient sound healing instruments that generate gentle frequencies and vibrations when activated. These bowls come in many different sizes, each one creating a unique type of sound, and practitioners utilize different techniques to create chimes, dongs, and longer-lasting sound sensations.

While historians continue to debate the exact origins of singing bowls, they’ve been proven to have existed as early as 560 B.C., making them one of the most tried and trusted sound healing instruments. 

Now, there are two main types of singing bowls used in sound healing:

Tibetan Sound Bowls

Some researchers believe that sound bowls originated with ancient Tibetan monks, and these bowls continue to be a staple in modern Buddhism. These bowls, like copper or brass, are typically made from metal alloys and are activated using a wooden stick, creating a bell-like chime.

Crystal Sound Bowls

Alternatively, some sound healing practitioners prefer to use crystal singing bowls made from pure quartz. Not only do these bowls produce a soothing, atmospheric effect, but they also utilize the energy of energy-cleansing crystals, leaving patients feeling refreshed and renewed. 

How Do Sound Bowls Work?

Whether you’re looking for a deep sense of relaxation or to improve your overall health, sound bowling healing can be a transformative experience that many patients swear by. 

Most patients report that sound bowl healing allows them to:

  • Eliminate anxiety
  • Soothe negative emotions
  • Promote deep sleep
  • Release tension in the body
  • Improve digestion
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Balance irregulate heart rates
  • Increase oxygen flow

Like any other holistic health practice, you should consult with a trained professional before experimenting with singing bowls, as some research suggests these deep brain waves can be unsafe for pregnant women and those suffering from epilepsy or seizure disorders. 

Plus, working with a skilled sound bowl practitioner will ensure that you get the best experience possible so you can sit back, relax, and allow your mind and body to be totally at ease.
