Sound Baths Are The Secret Ingredient Your Self-Care Routine Is Missing
A sound bath is when you sit or lie down and listen to the sounds created by certain instruments. It’s meditative and conducive to deeper relaxation, for the body and the mind.
Sound baths harness the power of musical tools to create low-frequency sounds, known as binaural beats, that invite the body to soften and the mind to release stressful thoughts.
While it’s possible to study how to play, for example, singing bowls for your personal sound bath practice, it’s better to attend a class with a trained instructor first.
You can also make use of the guided sound bath videos available on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. Just put on a pair of headphones or use a speaker for a better experience.
It is important to note that this musical self-care practice could have negative impacts on people suffering from neurological disorders, epilepsy, or migraines.
If you are pregnant or suffering from any form of mental illness, it is best to consult a doctor before incorporating sound baths into your routine.
