I experienced my first gong bath early in 2019 – the experience made a deep impression on me. I found it relaxing and it helped with some feelings of anxiety I had been experiencing.
Following this I sought out other gong baths which led me to taking some gong player training provided by Selma Studer of Gong studios. I’m a musician, percussionist and a practitioner of mindfulness meditation – and have a keen interest in the power of sound and music to alter mood. So, playing gong for restorative purposes really resonated with me – literally!
In my sessions, I hold a peaceful and calming space. While I am fascinated by the science of sound, its effect on us – and its potential to improve our wellbeing, I make no unsubstantiated claims for what the gong will do for you. A gong bath is a personal experience – and one that will change from session to session. However, I do believe – both from personal experience and from talking to others, that it can refresh and revitalise, allow us to take time out from the stresses and strains of everyday life – and help calm our busy minds.
I’m currently studying for a diploma in Group Sound Relaxation Therapy with the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST).
