Meditation you’ve heard it’s great for your health and scientifically proven to help with stress that it’s a must do, but what if you can’t sit in pure silence and focus on your breath?
Than Yvette Le Blowitz, founder of Spa it Girl recommends you try something a little different and it is “Sound Healing a.k.a Sound Bathing which is the new Spa & Wellness Global Trend”.
Sound Healing is ancient ritual that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace, well being and better health from within.
Sound Healing uses ancient instruments, including Tibetan singing bowls that are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics at the frequency of “AUM” or “OM”. This sound frequency known as that of perfection impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls.
During our waking state, the normal frequency of our brain waves is that of Beta. Sound tools entrain the brain to move into the deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies. These are the frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind and intuition.
Sound has been shown to be an effective way to help with the healing process, grief, pain relief, stress related conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and sleep.
Yvette Le Blowitz, founder of Spa it Girl shares “I can always create a peace, calm and spiritual wellness space by simply listening to Tibetan singing bowls play”
“Over the many years of being in the Spa and Wellness Industry and travelling to and experiencing different wellness and spa places, practicing yoga, meditating, meeting spiritual gurus, dabbling in ancient rituals, I found that whenever I listen to Tibetan singing bowls or any other forms of Sound Healing it had a profound calming effect”.
“I love creating a calm, peaceful and wellness work environment so for me listening to Tibetan Healing Sounds is just one of my many Wellness things I like to do when in the office and it seems millions of people globally are also tuning in to listen to Tibetan Healing Sounds on youtube also.
“If you ever need to bring some order back into your work place or space or a state of calm then listening to Tibetan singing bowls will always do the trick”. “I find it even helps with productivity and creativity”.
