Gong therapy is a personalized, one on one sound session where you can fully experience the sound and vibrational energy of the gongs up close.
Gong Therapy has proven to be effective in providing relief from pain, headaches, vertigo, menstrual difficulties, and more. Most people report immediate and short-term relief for up to several days, and in some cases for much longer. Gong Therapy combines the use of body positioning (asanas) hand positions (mudras), breath awareness (pranayama), directed internal gazes of the eyes (drishtis), affirmations with other sacred sounds (mantras), as well as guided visualization and relaxation (yoga nidra)
When played live and in close proximity to the listener, the sound waves of the gongs transfers the living energy of the player and the strong sound waves, almost tangible to the touch, directly to the listener. Low frequency sound waves created can incase the body in a sonic envelope akin to a continuous massage. The sound of a live gong stimulates circulation, while its wide range of frequencies stimulates nerve endings. It stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning and in particular the pituitary and pineal glands seem directly affected by it sound. Dermatomes in our skin, can be stimulated by sound waves and produce effects on corresponding organs and other areas of the body.
The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, clears the mind and aides in the reorganization of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure and consequently affect the mind. The spiritual healing power of the gong is perhaps best understood by its ability to create a non-– ordinary state of transcendent reality and a connection with a vastness beyond the finite self. In that space, even for the briefest of moments, the gong is a portal to what has always existed and what can always be.
