Learn how to conduct a Gong Bath
Why use gongs in healing?
Gong Bathing is the delivery of sound, vibration and frequency to one or more individuals within a space where the client lays comfortably relaxed to receive sounds produced from one or many Gongs, to induce mind and body relaxation. An average session is around 45 minutes and clients often feel rejuvenated in this short time.
Gongs are very powerful sound healing tools which can produce a spectrum of sounds that can be heard from great distances and have been used in Asia for thousands of years and are closely associated with Kundalini Yoga for their known ability to deeply affect our energy centres (chakras), meridians and subtle energy bodies.
Different types of gongs produce different sounds and are very effected by not only how they are played but also the tools used to play them, making them very versatile in a gong bath or healing setting and the big sounds they produce mean group gong baths are a very powerful experience for those attending.
In a gong bath, the tones and frequencies relax the mind and body and the parasympathetic nervous system is engaged, releasing tension, lowering the heart rate and blood pressure and triggering the body’s natural healing ability into action. Similarly, in a 1-1 healing the gong can be used intuitively to direct the sound into areas of imbalance within the client to rebalance them holistically.
A truly non-invasive, holistic medium for health and well-being as the body intelligently goes to work on the areas of imbalance within the client who is fully clothed throughout and often under a blanket for maximum comfort and relaxation.
Clients may react differently to the treatment. Some fall asleep, some feel very physically aware and some feel like they have drifted off to a very happy place! Following a session, the client can continue to experience the benefits of having been in the meditative state for some time.
Whether you are looking to become a sound healing practitioner, interested in sound healing, or just want to learn a new skill, this training is for you.
What we will cover;
- Introduction to gongs – which ones and why
- Playing techniques – how to get the best out of any gong
- Tools – sticks, strikers, stands and more
- Working with the power of gongs
- How to add gongs to your Sound bath or lead a Gong bath
- How to heal individuals with the gong
- What to expect and look out for in your clients – reading reactions
- Adapting your new skills to incorporate gongs with your current offering
This amazing treatment can be blended with your current energy or bodywork offerings to your clients or is a very powerful stand-alone therapy in itself. It also enables you to serve large groups of people at once in a beautiful way.
Clients come away feeling relaxed but energised all at once because of the mind and body effects but those who are truly open to it may journey very deeply within to engage their higher selves, bringing insight, intuition and so much more after experiencing this energy/meditation therapy.
