WHAT MIGHT I EXPERIENCE?
What will happen?
You will be invited to lie on a yoga mat, with cushions and blankets for comfort. The session will normally last for an hour. This is a time of non-doing and total relaxtion in which you will be bathed in sound waves.

What the clients say.......
Experiences range from different physical sensations, to meditative and dream-like/trance states as well as mental or emotional shifts. Every Sound Bath is different for each individual, dependant on what you are going through at the present moment. It is important to be aware that each experience, however challenging, is a response to energy shifting and many feel a deep sense of relaxation, clarity and upliftment, after the session.
My Story - How Sound Baths have helped people........
Meet Julie Evans.
Julie is a postlady and was first introduced to the gongs by her husband. Julie has
been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, an inflammatory condition which can be
extremely painful. Julie says that the sound supports her with her condition because
“It helps me relax and unwind “.
Introducing Elaine Marianne Hughes
Elaine works as a counsellor and heard about the Sound Baths through a friend.
The sessions have impacted my life in a very positive way. I used to attend quite
sporadically – but now I am dedicated to attending on a monthly basis – because
of the positive outcomes for me for my physical and mental well being. I was diagnosed
formally by a consultant with Fibromyalgia about two years ago. Its a complicated
condition compromising a whole range of symptoms including chronic fatigue,
insomnia, stiffness, anxiety, irritable bladder / bowel, depression – and each individual
will experience different aspects of this condition. Being such an active person –
a ‘doer’ made me live in denial of it for the first year – but this gave me a big struggle
mentally. Attending the Sound Baths has definitely helped – the tranquillity and relaxation
I experience has been greatly beneficial. Also there is a great power within ourselves to self –repair. I am convinced that the sound vibration during the sound baths has helped my body to self repair.
For this reason – I now want to attend on a regular basis. ......
Introducing Carys Hughes-Love
Carys has been working as a Nurse for 28 years and is often faced with stressful
situations. “I was tired, insomnia was getting the better of me, and my menopause
symptoms were getting me down. I was anxious about silly little things and found
myself encountering increasing physical pain”. I suppose that I was hoping that taking
this time to invest in me and my health would result in me being able to function
better, having better clarity of mind, being able to sleep and me more “settled” and
comfortable in myself. I felt warm and felt the tones emitting from these beautiful
instruments (which Steph later explained to me are hand beaten).. There is only one
word to describe this…. BLISSFUL. I was engulfed in the sounds of the gongs.. so
much so that my sister complained to me at the end that I was snoring!!!The Gongs are like protectors and they envelope you in their warmth and create like a safety blanket around you. The tones form the Gongs are so smooth- like silk and so well rounded like a good lovely red wine. The warmth of the snuggly comfort blanket of
the Gongs was so welcoming…..
This is Medi Vaughan Wilkinson
Medi is a translator, who was introduced to the Gongs by a good friend.
I have always had time for alternative forms of healing. During my teenage years I
practiced meditation and showed a keen and interest in self care and natural
healing. I would further develop an interest in ASMR and guided relaxation. The
idea of Gong Baths naturally peaked my interest and having listened to my friend
talk about her amazing session I decided to give it a try!
My experience during a Gong bath was feelings of warmth, safety and inner peace.
I find the low lighting immensely comforting alongside Steph’s gentle voice. The
gongs have a beautiful pulse and depth that washes over you like waves, like
beautiful light bubbles that transport you into a place of peace. I have never
experienced 12 strangers relax and drift away together like this. It was quite magical
I have to say!
Introducing Peter Jones
Peter is a retired Special Needs Teacher and now teaches Yoga, facilitates Reiki and is
an End of Life Doula.
I have been enjoying exploring Sound in a variety of ways, Naked Voice, Toning, Kirtan
and Mantra, Soundscape, using Tibetan Singing Bowls, experiencing a Gong Bath,
with it especially being on my doorstep, was a natural progression. Aside from the
pure enjoyment of such an experience, I always go with an openness to receive the
resonance of the sounds, relax deeply, and allow my body, mind, emotions and spirit
to be bathed by the sounds and the “ magic” they work!
