Sound Bath Q&A

What's a Sound Bath?

Sound healing is an ancient form of holistic therapy that uses sound waves to reduce stress and improve overall well-being. It is believed that sound waves can help to restore balance to the body and mind, and provide relief from physical and emotional pain. The benefits of sound healing include improved relaxation, improved concentration, improved sleep, improved mood, reduced stress and anxiety, improved circulation, improved immunity, and more. Sound healing can be used for a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, depression, PTSD, and other mental health issues. Whether you are looking for relief from physical or emotional pain, sound healing can be an effective and natural way to bring balance to your life.

Do Sound Baths Work?

Yes, sound baths can be a great way to relax and help reduce stress. Sound baths involve listening to soothing sounds, such as singing bowls, voice, tuning forks and gongs, which can help to induce a meditative state and help people to become more mindful. Research has also suggested that sound baths may have a positive effect on physical and mental health and help people to better manage stress, anxiety, depression, among other issues.

How Does Sound Healing Works?

Sound baths emit sound waves at a frequency that creates a calming and healing environment.

It is important to first understand that there are 5 brain states: Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma.

Beta waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, concentration, and active thinking.

Alpha waves are associated with relaxation, meditation, and daydreaming.

Theta waves are associated with deep meditation and creative thinking.

Delta waves are associated with dreamless sleep and unconsciousness.

Gamma waves are associated with high-level information processing and problem solving.

When we get to deeper waves, like Tetha, Delta and Gamma our body is given the freedom to fully relax and heal. This is what sound healing is all about. Helping you through its 6 main healing frequencies that are 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, and 852 they help you to get to those deeper states and heal from your physical and emotional issues.

Each frequency helps with something different:

How long Does A Sound Bath Last?

On average a sound baths last between 45 and 60 minutes. I personally do offer shorter sessions during my free lives but my paid events and 1:1s will last around an hour or slightly less depending on the person(s) and the situation.

How Often Should I attend a Sound Bath?

Usually, 1 to 2 sessions per months are recommended. However, if you are starting out or are currently having issues with depression, stress, anxiety, or other emotional issues it can be good to start with up to a session every week. Micro sessions that last a few minutes a wildly different you can enjoy them way more regularly.

Are Sound Baths Safe During Pregnancy?

Yes sound baths are safe as long as you make sure that no instruments are placed directly on your body. Studies have shown that fetuses that enjoyed sound baths are often calmer and more relaxed that babies who did not experience them while in the womb. Another study held in France helped decrease the labor time for women who participated to such events.

While pregnant the fetus will receive the energy the mother is in. Sound bath helping bring calm and relaxation, those benefits are transmitted to the future baby.

This being said, every pregnancy is different and I therefore recommend you chat with your OBGYN or other health health professional about the practice first.

Is Sound Bath a New Practice?

No! Sound healing has been used for thousands of years as a form of healing. Ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Greeks, and Chinese all used sound to heal and restore balance. Sound healing techniques would involve singing, chanting, drumming, or playing instruments such as Tibetan singing bowls. In the modern era, sound healing has become popular again as a form of alternative medicine. The concept of sound healing is based on the idea that all matter is made up of vibrating energy, and that sound waves can be used to manipulate this energy to heal and restore balance in the body.

Can Sound Healing Make Tinnitus worse?

No it is quite the opposite. According to studies sound healing can have beneficial effects on tinnitus and can even effectively suppress tinnitus for some people. The two common processes used by the practice are masking and habituation.


Sound healing/ Sound baths / Reiki and other of my practices are not meant to be substitutes for your medical advices, current treatments from your physicians and health care professionals. While I believe these programs to be helpful in their own right, they are not intended as sole treatment or therapy for a specific condition.

I suggest you to chat with your doctor or specialist if you have any medical condition before coming to a sound healing session.

Because knowledge is power if you have further questions about the practice I will be happy to guide you to studies and books to sharpen your knowledge about the practice.

Everyone is different so the results we may see are not always guaranteed. Remember that what is effective for some, may, or may not be for others. Please practice discernment.
