We like the idea of being bathed and that includes being bathed in sound.
So what is a sound bath? “The origins of the sound bath include Tibetan singing bowls to aboriginal didgeridoos, music has been used for its therapeutic effects for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks used sound vibration to aid in digestion, treat mental disturbance, and induce sleep, and even Aristotle's De Anima detailed how flute music could purify the soul. Then, at the end of the 19th century, researchers began to focus on proving the correlation between sound and healing. These studies proved that music could lower blood pressure, decrease pulse rate and assist the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for digestion and some metabolic processes.”** In terms of sound baths, researchers have found that sound waves affect the human nervous system and decrease blood pressure more than traditional meditation. There is also new research on the benefits of binaural beats, which is when two tones at slightly different frequencies are played in unison. These sounds have been found to reduce anxiety levels, as well as enhance mood states.*** Explore the meditative state of traditional sound bath and the contemporary compilations selected for the fullness of every red flower experience.
