Mark Smallman

Mark has always been interested in the ability of music and sound to calm the mind. When he had his first gong bath, he was blown away by the ability of the instrument to induce effortless meditation. Inspired by a quote from the late DJ Andrew Weatherall who said ‘you’re never going to have that feeling of hearing a record for the first time again, but if you look into the eyes of someone who’s hearing it for the first time... it’s the next best feeling’, he’s keen to share the positive energy of the gong with people who have not already encountered it.

Pablo Hernandez Urzola

Pablo After 15 years in a stressful corporate job, Pablo’s life changed in Bali with his first gong bath. He was floating, had visions, lost all perceptions of space and time. Back in London he became a gong bath ‘groupie’, but his work life was becoming so stressful he was reaching breaking point. He then discovered Sound Therapy and underwent treatment. Starting to work with Sound helped Pablo to rebalance, take care of himself, and improved his productivity, relationships, and his whole outlook. Friends soon noticed and said, 'Give us the trick!’ So three Sound Therapy courses later, he launched his own Sound Therapy practice to help others find the positivity he did.
