Singing Bowls

Have you ever heard a Tibetan Singing Bowl? Their sounds are enchanting and healing. Their vibrations can be felt throughout your entire body.

What are they?

Tibetan singing bowls date back to pre-Buddhist Tibetan Bon culture where they were used in rituals and as a healing, relaxation and meditation practice throughout Eastern culture. Today they are used in sound healing, music therapy, yoga, and as an aid to reaching meditative states.

The bowls were specially designed from 7 different metals and in a shape that when struck creates intense vibrations and sounds that induce a state of relaxation and bliss.

In modern society, we are suffering from a stress epidemic. Recent scientific research is proving the extraordinary benefits this type of sound and vibration therapy can have on our health and wellbeing. In particular, with iradicating stress, pain, anxiety and insomnia.

How do they work?

During the majority of everyday lives, our brainwaves, register as a Beta frequency. During a Tibetan Bowls session, the sound waves and vibrations penetrate our brain cells, and our brainwaves start to synchronise with the vibrations of the bowls, forcing us into a theta brainwave state. The right and left hemispheres of the brain begin to balance and a similar effect of coherence and synchronisation also occurs within our bodies, harmonising the nervous system and reducing or eliminating pain, stress and anxiety.

What are the benefits?

Through clinical observation, it has been seen that vibrational sound therapy can effect stress related conditions, including cardiovascular irregularities or problems, muscle spasms and anxiety. Sound healing can charge your immune system and deepen oxygen flow to internal organs, thereby improving overall health.

It can significantly improve our sleeping patterns, reducing chronic fatigue, insomnia and all the medical and psychological disorders that can often accompany sleep deprivation. In practice, the massage of sound can create inner harmony, promote overall health and restore balance, leaving the body feeling light, positive and full of energy. It is also great for improving memory and creativity.

It is great for anybody who wants to meditate, but finds it difficult to get into a meditative state on their own. The vibrations of the bowls induce a meditative state, regardless of how busy a person’s mind is.

Scientific Quotes

Find out what scientists and doctors are writing about sound healing

While many people are only just discovering it, sound healing is actually a return to ancient cultural practices that used chants and singing bowls to restore health and relieve pain — Stephanie Rosenbloom, New York Times

Read from the source

If we accept that sound is vibration, and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is "heard" not only through our ears but through every cell in our body — Mitchell L. Gaynor, MD, oncologist

Read from the source

Using sound, it is possible to make profound changes in brainwave patterns and states of consciousness, observable on brainwave mapping equipment (EEG), as well as positive changes in the body measurable with blood tests, biofeedback equipment and other sophisticated procedures — Dr. Jeffrey D. Thompson, D.C., B.F.A.

Equipment we are using

Each piece of equipment below has its own unique history and its own sound and vibration.

Ghanta & Dorje Sets

The Ghanta, or "Drilbu" in Tibetan, is a ritual handbell symbolic of ‘male’ and wisdom. Dorje is Tibetan for indestructible diamond scepter, and is symbolic of ‘female’ and compassion. Together, the Ghanta and Dorje symbolize the perfect union of wisdom and compassion necessary to achieve enlightenment.

The Ghanta is typically made of five-metal bronze alloy according to an ancient formula. The Dorje is made of brass. The bell resonates loudly with beautiful harmonic resonant frequency when rubbed with a wooden mallet. The Ghanta can be played by ringing, as each has a clapper suspended inside, or by rubbing around the outside rim with a stick (similar to how the Tibetan singing bowls are played). Traditionally the Bell was used in rituals to call the presence of the Budda, before a prayer or to clear the mind of worldly matters and dispel stress and tension. In modern times the bell is more often used for meditation, space clearing, healing or unblocking the chakras.

Tingsha

Tingsha have their origin in Bön Shamanism, which predated Buddhism in Tibet. Tingsha are two cymbals, circular, solid and thick, connected by a leather strap or chain. Antique Tingsha were made from special bronze alloys that produce harmonic overtones. Fine quality examples of antiques or the rare pair of carefully matched new Tingsha will sound identical. Most Tingsha, however, are not perfectly matched so each produces a distinctly clear and high pitched different tone. Today, Tingsha are used along with singing bowls and other `ruments in meditation, music and sound healing.

FAQ

  • How many sessions will I need?

    The number of sessions required will depend on the what the individual's needs are. An individual session is sufficient for a relaxation experience. A course of 6 sessions is recommendeded for a significant change in insomnia or stress related conditions.
  • What clothing should I wear?

    Loose and comfortable clothing is preferred. Metals including zippers, belts and jewellery should be avoided.
  • Is this a religious experience?

    Although this ancient practice has roots in religious rituals, the practice itself is not a religious one.
  • Do you run group sessions?

    Group meditation sessions are available upon request.
  • What is different about the sessions at Healing Waves?

    We have the finest quality Singing bowls from Tibet. The bowls used during the session are all hand beaten and are over 115 years old. They originate from the Hor and Jang communities in Tibet. Both of these communities were destroyed by the Chinese and no longer exist. The bowls were made with monks chanting during the creation process.

    We offer one on one healing sessions. Our practitioner has been trained by Tibetan Singing Bowl experts in both India and the USA.

How Healing Waves Began

After years in the corporate world, we discovered that stress had significantly affected our minds and bodies. Between us, we were suffering from insomnia, anxiety and various other stress related conditions. We searched for a solution to return our bodies to their natural states.

Our journey took us to India, where we studied various ancient healing methods. After extensive studies into different modalities, we discovered the Tibetan Singing Bowls. This was the most powerful and effective technique for inducing a theta brainwave state - the most relaxing and healing state our bodies and minds can reside in, outside of sleep. We became very passionate about this method due to the incredible results it produced within ourselves and others. We travelled to the US to further broaden and deepen our expertise. Our passion grows daily as we witness the transformations in our clients both in Australia and overseas.

We invite you along to share the journey...
