Surrender to the vibrations of sonic medicine.
Now offering in-person private and semi-private gong baths at Unity of Tuscaloosa!
What happens when we experience a full body sound and vibration massage? We humans are made up of mostly water so we start to vibrate in resonance with this incredible instrument, potentially effecting all of our body's cells.
You may experience these potential benefits:
A sense of security and grounding;
Opening the higher chakras (energy centers);
Pain management (particularly migraines);
Especially soothing for high vata/wind constitutions, i.e., calming and unplugging the overactive mind, reducing anxiety, worry and overwhelm and relief for insomnia;
Deep relaxation and a meditative state;
Emotional release when working through grief.
The sounds are oftentimes magical and have been described as ethereal, cosmic, like being in outer space and also likened to ocean waves crashing over us. The sounds can also be loud, at times, to promote a deep release for the overworked nervous system.
The gong nourishes and soothes our overly taxed nervous system that is activated and on overdrive during these stressful times.
A gong therapy session is a private or semi-private session, customized to your specific needs. A typical session lasts one hour and may also include breath work, sacred sounds, affirmations, and stretching.
Gong therapy is an ideal companion to talk therapy, yoga/meditation, massage therapy, acupuncture, Reiki and many other modalities as well as conventional medical treatments.
