Healing Benefits of Singing Bowls

Singing bowls are metal bowls that are used as ritual objects by the Tibetan monks which when played with a wooden stick around its rim produces a resounding sound that induces meditation. Traditionally made of metals of gold, silver, copper, iron, tin, and lead, the pitch sound that a singing bowl emits depend on the thickness, size and weight of bowl. The sound that it produces is calming, thus, singing bowls are used by the Tibetan monks to mark and end their meditation ritual and also during the meditation period.

A Silver Sky singing bowl is played by first gently holding it in the palm of your hand and rubbing the outside rim of the metal bowl with a wooden stick in a circular motion, doing it many times over while keeping an even pressure. When the bowl starts to vibrate, you can increase the circular speed around the rim to increase the sound. The way the bowl is played to produce a sound causes an immediate centering effect, such that the tones that are released set up a kind of frequency that affects the left or right brain synchronization and that's why the resulting effect invokes a deep state of relaxation to the mind.

The sounds generated by singing bowls are described as like energy medicine that promote healing and this is why singing bowls have become healing instruments, prescribed as an alternative source of healing therapy for reducing stress and anxiety, reducing anger and blood pressure, helping in the proper circulation of blood and thus increasing the blood flow, relieving pain, promoting stillness of the mind thus making a person relaxed, helps in stimulating the immune system and even in ailments like fibromyalgia and psoriasis. When the brainwaves synchronize with the resonance of the bowls, the effect stimulates the mind to relax. Since all areas of our body has its own resonant frequency, the resonance from the bowls causes a harmony of energy frequency in all parts of the body, thus, a body is in a healthy state when the cells and the organs resonate in harmony with the whole being. It has been noted that the upper end of the brainwave range is instrumental to healing the body, mind and spirit, such that when the brainwave reaches at 7-8 Hertz cycles per second, it is said that our deeper intelligence, creativity, and self-healing mechanisms are activated. The overall balancing effect of the singing bowls and brainwave entrainment enhances cellular and systemic healing throughout the body. Visit  http://www.silverskyimports.com/ for more info.
