(i) What is Sound Healing?
Sound healing, or sound therapy, sound medicine, is an experience like no other! Put it simply, it involves gentle and deep relaxation to the sounds of special musical instruments such as Tibetan singing bowls, drums, rain sticks, gongs amongst a host of others played by a qualified sound therapist in a room. In a typical sound healing, participants normally lie down on yoga mats with blankets and/or pillows and simply listen to music played by the sound therapist. The effect of the vibration of the music as it ripples through the body is deeply calming and relaxing. The mind becomes in tune with the vibration resulting in a cosmic experience of pure peace and harmony.
