Singing bowls and sound therapy in general is an ancient practice. Singing bowls have been used in Tibet and neighboring areas for religious and spiritual ceremonies, as well as meditation for thousands of years. The first bowls were made from an alloy of various metals and were used 6000 years ago in the Far East.
These bowls produce their beneficial effects through the vibrational frequency emitted when played. The vibrations and sound waves from the bowl interact with your body and brain waves, and calm the body and mind, giving a deeper sense of meditation and spiritual clarity. The sound is believed to reduce the stress hormone cortisol and create a calmer more relaxed state.
