Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in a Crystal Sound Lounge sound bath?

A sound-bath is typically 1 hour and is held in groups of up to 16 people. In the studio, you lie down on comfortable mats and are provided with pillows and fluffy blankets. The sound specialist will then play different crystal bowls, gongs and instruments to create beautiful relaxing sounds that put your mind and body into a deep sense of well-being, during which you may fall asleep. Following the end of the session you will be gently awoken by the specialist and there will be a few moments silence before returning to the outside world.

What are the different types of sound baths offered?

Crystal Bowl Sound Bath: A specialist plays different sized crystal bowls made of pure quartz which promotes a sense of deep relaxation. The sound is produced by the sound specialist running the wand around the rim of the bowls producing notes with very strong vibrations. They are up to 8 white frosted bowls covering a full music octave and producing different notes and intervals.
Alchemy Crystal Bowl Sound Bath:  The Alchemy bowls are crystal bowls infused with rare and precious minerals such as ruby, gold, mother of pearl, amethyst, rose quartz, lapis lazuli and tourmaline. The addition of metals or gemstones to the Alchemy Crystal Bowls adds another dimension by dampening or filtering the pure crystal sound. Additionally, these elements on their own have beneficial effects to human psychology.

Gong Bath: A specialist plays a large gong which is a large flat circular metal disk which is hit with a mallet. Gongs have been used for over 5,000 years for healing, ritual, ceremony and musical purposes and come from Eastern and Southern East Asian. The Gong produces a strong sound wave, which has a slightly more stimulating effect with deeper reverberations.

Do I need to do anything?

No preparation or prior experience is needed. You simply arrive and lie down. Unlike meditation or mindfulness there is no mental effort undertaken by you; the music and vibrations do all the work. It is recommended you drink plenty of water after a session.

What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you like and you do not need to change.
