What is a Sound Bath with the Singing Bowls?
A sound bath is when you are immersed completely in the harmonics and rhythms of vibrations and sound.
When you get a Singing Bowl Treatment, the bowls will be set around you head to toe. You may have bowls placed on you and you might stand in the big F note bowl. the vibrations move through your bones. Your senses are awakened. You feel the vibrations- you experience. The sounds dance around us. It feels nourishing - like a internal massage. Part of the session you might be standing in the gentle giant bowl or totally relaxed and lying down. Each session is crafted specifically for you and your energy needs.
What is Reiki?
“Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “Spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including, body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.”The international Center for Reiki Training William Lee Rand www.reiki.org
Dallas has added Reiki into his treatments, becoming attuned as a Reiki Master. As he plays the singing bowls or bells he will also be giving you a Reiki treatment. Of course, you are part of the treatment, so you always have the option of doing only Reiki, only the bowls or a combination of both. Dallas has been attuned and is certified as a Reiki Master and Light Worker
"Sound and vibration can be used to re-tune us to health and one of the most powerful modalities for this is the use of Tibetan singing bowls. When there is a deep relaxation through soothing, resonant sound, the body is affected on a cellular level, opening up the flow of energy to move us back toward vibration alignment and with health. Sound can help us shift our energy frequency from lower to higher removing the lower frequencies of emotion such as fear, anger and resentment."
"Healing through sound and vibration has been known to reduce stress, improve, concentration, reduce blood pressure, stimulate life force flow in the body, improve immunity, harmonize the chakras with the energy field, heighten intuition and perception, synchronize the brain hemispheres, remove mental and emotional negativity and enhance creativity."
"As much as 70% of the human body is made up of water, so when you strike a singing bowl next to your body, the vibration makes a pattern in your body, which is healing and relaxing." Suren Shrestha author of How to Heal with Singing Bowls.
What you expect during a Singing bowl/Reiki session...
Deep relaxation! When you first enter, if you have not met Dallas or the bowls, he will give you a little info and demonstration of the bowls and how they sound. You will see a massage table, and lots of singing bowls, gongs and bells.
Dallas might start by having you stand up and feel the bowls around you first. Then you might lie down (fully dressed) on the heated massage table. Dallas might ask you if you have an intention/desire for the session or want to visualize something that is nourishing to you.
Dallas will ask you if you want a eye pillow to help you relax your eyes and quiet your mind. For the next 20-40 minutes you will hear and feel deep sounds, vibrations, bells, gongs, quiet. If Reiki is part of your treatment, you might feel energy from Dallas's hands, Reiki hand placements and a bit of breeze from hand movements. Finally, you will be gently rocked, if you have fallen asleep. You can slowly start to stretch and return to the day. Refreshed and rebooted.
