Using sound as a form of healing dates back to ancient cultures. Records of using gongs have surfaced from as early as ancient Indian, Tibetan, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman times. The Gong has the widest range of Sound that can sometimes instantly heal the mind-body and soul from its core levels.

How does this meditation work?

When you are in an optimal state of physical and mental health, all of the systems in your body are working in harmony. Sound can be an effective way to reprogramme your own vibrations to a more optimal state. At the mental level, for example, the drone-like sounds from a gong can entrain your brainwaves to a lower state (the alpha and theta states) where healing and restoration can occur. If your mind is always in overdrive (when the mind is predominantly in the beta brainwave state), you will likely feel stressed and overwhelmed. If you can spend more time in a relaxed mental state, that has an overall calming effect on the mind and body. And vice versa – when the body can enter a deep state of rest, that also helps the mind relax. When you are in a relaxed state, there is a greater chance for harmony and health.
