Gongs have been used as healing tools and ceremonial instruments for 5000 years. They are part of an ancient tradition known as Sound Healing which also includes using our voices (such as toning & mantra chanting), drums, tuning forks and tibetan bowls. A ‘Gong Immersion’ is currently a buzz word in sound healing meditation and is very popular globally in these chaotic, stressful times for relaxation and de-stress.
It is often referred to as a “Gong Bath” due to participants being bathed in the sonic frequencies to which the body entrains and moves into resonance with the vibrations. This happens because sound can move through and create patterns in water and our bodies are 75% water so the vibrations are absorbed.
