Sound healing in Bali. Sound meditations

Sound healing comes from the English words sound and heal. This practice is intended to restore a person's physical and psychological state.
The principle of sound healing is not a modern invention: it was used in ancient Greece for the prevention of mental disorders. Elements of sound therapy can be found among African and Indigenous tribes, as well as among northern peoples and even ancient Slavs.
In Bali, sound healing practices are conducted in dozens of places in various regions of the island. During a session, you lie outdoors on a comfortable mat and listen to the sounds of singing bowls, occasionally following the voice of the sound therapist. During the process, your active mind releases all the noise and mental clutter, allowing your subconscious to communicate with you.
In addition to Tibetan singing bowls, various shamanic musical instruments, as well as vocals and guitar, are used in these sessions. This is the simplest form of meditation, allowing you to achieve a subtle state between sleep and wakefulness without any effort. Nowadays, more and more people are practicing this form of relaxation, and sound healing is appearing in many yoga studios and spa salons. In this article, we will tell you about the best places in Bali where sound therapy is conducted.
