THERAPEUTIC SOUND BATH – WITH TOMMY
Tommy is a former international recording and touring musician, current Education Music Specialist and fully certified / insured Therapeutic Sound Practitioner from Loch Lomond, Scotland.
So what is a Therapeutic Sound Bath?
A Sound Bath is a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to NURTURE YOUR MIND AND BODY.
There is no effort required. Nothing for your to do but switch off and unwind as Tommy from The Sonic Den takes you on magical journey to a place of inner calm and harmony.
What do I need to do?
The experience begins with each person lying down on their Yoga mat in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and pillows for extra comfort. After a few minutes of mindful breathing, visualisation and setting an intention the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession. The sounds are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including Himalayan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Gong, HandPan, Frame Drum, Koshi Chimes, Flow Chimes, Ocean Drum and Native American Flutes and soft sung mantra vocals.
When you sink into a Sound Bath and guide your awareness to your listening, you allow your brain waves to slow down, shifting from a more active state to a more relaxed state, or even a dreamlike state.
The sounds introduced during a Sound Bath are an invitation into a deeper state of consciousness, an opportunity to unplug from external stimuli and to gain perspective on what’s going on within you. The goal of the experience is to invite deep rest and relaxation, and explore self-inquiry and self-discovery.
