As you lay down under your soft blanket, Rachael will guide you through a Reiki activated relaxation enabling you to relax your body and begin to quieten the mind ready for the resonant sounds of the gong, Tibetan singing bowls and Koshi bells to wash over you.
Sound has been used for thousands of years for therapeutic purposes. As you bathe in the deep vibrations of the gong, all the cells in the body begin to resonate, stimulating the vegas nerve (which runs from your brain stem to your abdomen). Your vegas nerve kick starts your bodies relaxation response, helps prevent inflammation in the body and can slow your heart rate. Therapeutic sounds have been shown to inhibit the stress or pain response as well as having a positive effect on your heart and respiratory rates. They entrain the brain to theta brain wave frequencies where visualisation and the creative power of your mind starts. As you relax deeper you may find you enter a trance like state, or are able to access different levels of consciousness not explored before.
People often report deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and deeper connections to their intuition.
“The gong is more accurately a force of energy, "like a divine engine, affecting the body's meridians. By and large, after it's over, you just feel great, you feel like you've been healed by the spirit of nature." Don Conreaux
"The effects lasted well into the evening and even the next morning, when I felt an incredible sense of calm and focus." Priyam Sharma - from Huffington Post article Why every stressed out person should try a gong meditation.
Rachael trained with Tim Wheater and Cherub and runs regular Reiki Activated meditations and gong baths across London.
Let's be real, meditation can be difficult. We all want a little more peace but getting the mind to behave can be a bit tricky.
We live busy lives. Often distracted by all sorts of things. Work. Family (or lack thereof). Keeping a roof over your head. Dating. Love (or lack thereof). Comparison, scrolling, Netflix, fears, worries, shopping lists... wants, needs, wants, distractions, worries... well you get the point.
It's enough to give anyone anxiety just trying to keep up.
If only there was an easy way to get the benefits of meditation without the hard work of meditation...
Well, there is ... gong meditation.
