WHAT IS A GONG BATH?
A gong bath is an immersive sound experience. It's called a 'bath' because sound waves 'wash' over you as you relax and enjoy the melodic journey. The harmonics will effortlessly lull your mind into a meditative state, while the vibrations revitalize your body and help to release tension. By the end, you'll feel supremely relaxed, calm and happy.
GONG was founded with a clear mission to help more people access the benefits of meditation and sound therapy through the power of the gong. Many people understand these benefits, but they struggle to actually meditate and experience them. By offering gong baths in a variety of settings including our own studio as well as workplaces, private residences, and other unique venues, we are bringing the effortless yet deeply impactful meditative experience to everyone curious enough to try something new.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Selma experienced her first gong bath during a yoga retreat in Thailand before heading off to business school. The power of the instrument captivated her, but it wasn't until she moved to London and began seeking refuge from the stresses of urban professional life that she returned to the sacred sound. After spending several years managing corporate communications, Selma decided it was finally time to do something about the stress and anxiety that ravages so many lives. She has since dedicated herself to introducing more people to the amazing therapeutic experience of gong baths. Her personal mission is to help individuals lift some of the burden of modern life, find more space in their minds and hearts, less pain and tension in their bodies, and greater balance in their lives overall.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
The gong makes meditating easy, enjoyable and deeply relaxing yet also revitalizing. It's an everyday retreat that strengthens your mind, boosts your mood, relieves stress and helps you work through whatever challenges you're facing.
The unique and soothing sounds quiet your mind and can induce a meditative state by stimulating brainwave activity. You will also benefit from the physical vibrations of the gong. The powerful sound waves vibrate every cell in your body, helping to release blocked energy and restore balance.
Some people compare the experience of a gong bath to the sensory deprivation of a floatation tank. Another client described it as "being suspended in that blissful moment of lucid consciousness just before you fall asleep". Book a session to explore the positive effects for yourself.
