What’s so great about gong baths? The benefits of gong meditation

By October 19, 2021 No Comments


Have you ever heard a sound so relaxing it sends soothing waves through your entire body? Using the healing vibrations of sound, gong baths do exactly this – and more.

Gong baths and other forms of sound healing are a type of meditation where you “bathe” in the sounds. Often starting with breathing exercises or light stretches to ease you in, the gongs are then introduced and your entire body becomes immersed in the vibrations which can help shift energetic blockages. 

Let’s explore some of the benefits of gong baths.

1.They can reduce stress

Gong baths allow your brain to enter alpha or theta states. In these states, your brain is able to process your thoughts and emotions more clearly, allowing you to feel more calm and relaxed. Being in a state of deep relaxation can contribute to a reduction in stress in your daily life.

2.They can enhance overall wellbeing

Gong baths have been used as a form of healing for thousands of years. They have been proven to enhance overall wellbeing by promoting vitality and healing through certain tones. They are highly rejuvenating for the body and can encourage increased contentment and stillness.

3.They can relieve emotional blockages

It is common for people to experience deep healing during gong baths as the vibrations of the sound can help to clear emotional and energetic blockages. Think of it as a deep tissue massage for your energy!

4.They help you sleep better

Due to gong baths enabling you to enter a more relaxed state, they can also have a huge impact on the quality of your sleep. While it’s not uncommon to fall asleep during a gong bath, your sleep following a gong bath session may also be deeper and less disturbed.
