Dating back as far as the 12th century, Himalayan singing bowls have been used throughout Asia for meditation, ritual, and ceremonial purposes. The sound produced by these metallic bowls is quite similar to a gong or a bell.
Used in sound healing therapy, singing bowls are believed to calm and repair the mind as well as reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, alleviate aches and pains, strengthen the immune system, and improve the mood of a person.
The Himalayan bowls vibrate with warm sustained tones, they have the ability to entrain the brain taking you from a Beta state down to a deep theta state in a very short while, earthy and relaxing.
Great for pure relaxation, the sound waves are said to calm our monkey mind.
