Bubble baths aren’t the only bath we can have to relax. Sound baths are becoming a popular way to relax and meditate as the soothing sounds are proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
What are Sound Baths?
Sound baths use percussion instruments such as gongs, bells and Tibetan singing bowls to create soothing, echoing vibrations.
Sound baths are typically accompanied by yoga or guided meditation. The soothing sounds produce deep, overlapping vibrations.
A sound bath is a common way of managing anxiety, soothing your nerves, and blocking out all the ideas and thoughts of your conscious mind as you connect with your body. A2016 study found that sound baths can reduce stress, fatigue and ease symptoms of depression and also physical pain reduction.
How Can I Have a Sound Bath?
There are many ways in which you can practice a sound bath. You can do them both in person with a trained sound bath provider or you can follow them online with a guided meditation. You can also just search ‘sound baths’ on Spotify or YouTube.
But for our Queens, our Queens Don’t Quit app offers guided meditation accompanied by sound baths which are amazing and will leave you feeling so relaxed and positive.
Sound baths aren’t some Hollywood fad used by celebrities. They genuinely work and have amazing benefits for our mental well-being.
