Gong Bath Relaxation
Gong Bath Relaxation is a very special experience suitable for everyone. The term gong bath means that you are bathed in sound waves, there is no water involved. Participants are fully clothed and are lying comfortably on their back on a yoga mat (mats, blankets and pillows are provided but you can bring your own if you prefer). All you have to do is lie comfortably and close your eyes and relax. The vibrations generated by the gongs work on the parasympathetic system gently taking all participants into a very deep state of relaxation supporting the natural rebalancing and self-healing process of the body. Alpha brainwave state is achieved very quickly and is followed by the Theta brainwave state. Alpha waves are defined as brainwave frequencies between 8 and 12 Hz. Daydreaming, imagination and associative thinking are all part of Alpha brainwave activity. Alpha waves are present in states of relaxation. Theta waves are defined as brainwave frequencies between 4 and 7 Hz. Theta waves occur during dreaming sleep - or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, although they also occur during deep meditation. Theta brainwave frequencies are most often where the gongs will take you. You will most likely enter a dreamlike, deep meditative state. Some people might even fall asleep… Gong Bath Relaxation is highly recommended for stress and anxiety related conditions as it helps release any tensions and old energies that are no longer needed, while re-harmonising your body and mind.
