Why Crystal Singing Bowls?
Mindfulness and meditation are wonderful, but it can be really hard to quiet the mind for even a brief period of time. The Crystal Singing Bowls bring all the benefits of meditation while providing balance and entertainment for the brain. When binaural bowls are played the brain can actually be reset – bringing balance to the right and left side. Binaural stimulation in the brain provides a multitude of benefits including relaxation, stress relief, peak mental alertness and focus, providing relief from lost sleep, mood elevating, and much more. Binaurals are then followed by harmonics which delight and relax the body. Clients will leave relaxed, refreshed and recharged.
Sound Baths and meditation offer our clients a truly unique 60 minute escape from their phones, email, meetings and the frenzy of deadlines with pure relaxation and healing sounds of Alchemy Crystal Bowls. During this session, clients will do a light meditation, relax, rest and rejuvenate, emerging more mindful and productive
This sound healing session is designed to clear and release negative energy, open the heart, and promote a quieter state of mind. Harmonious sounds are created to support the body’s natural healing processes while you recline on the blankets and pillows. Each singing bowl is tuned to a different frequency that corresponds to seven centers of the body, realigning any energy patterns that might be unbalanced.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Chris is amazing! I attended her Sound Bath session at Hot Box Yoga, and I experienced the most soothing sense of peace there. The best remedy for stress! Highly recommend :)"
"Chris is simply amazing. Sharp, observant, and loving. She works with you on a very personal level and has a great sense of humor! Her gift with her bowls makes me want to have her just live with me and play! ♡"
I have been to two sound baths now and both have been beautiful. It’s nice to be able to lay there and listen to the beautiful playing of the Crystal Bowls. As I relax and get centered I am able to take myself to the ocean, one of my happy places! I hope everyone is able to experience it at least once to take time for some self care"
What is Sound Healing?
A Sound Bath is a form of sound healing. It is called a Sound Bath because it feels like the sounds are washing over your body. Clients lay down on yoga mats with their eyes closed, a sound healing practitioner will play specific sound healing instruments that will help calm the mind chatter and relax the body. A Sound Bath helps to relieve stress, reduce pain and calm the mind.
The Crystal Singing Bowls work with sound waves by removing blockages to the energy flow with the chakras, aura and physical body. The crystal bowls have calming sound that cause relaxation. Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the body including the autonomic, immune and endocrine system. Every cell in our body absorbs and emits sound. All of Uplift Yoga's Crystal Sining Bowls are infused with rare minerals and playing these bowls also helps to heal the body through the crystals properties.
Each quartz Crystal Singing Bowl is tuned to a specific sound on the musical scale, which relates to a specific chakra. Using crystal assures the sound is precise and on pitch. Different sounds are emitted by each meditation Singing Bowl. Because of their ability to align with the body’s energy centers, Singing Bowls are widely known as one of the most effective ways to realign the chakras and strive for optimal health
Sound has been used to heal and bring balance in many ancient and modern cultures, whether through instruments, chanting or singing. Uplift Yoga believes the Crystal Singing Bowls bring about a sense of calmness and healing through their sound, vibration, color and the materials they are infused with including rare minerals, precious metals and gemstones.
Research by Oncologist Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor MD, indicates that through the process of entrainment, sound as therapy can:
Lower blood pressure and reduce cardiac disease
Improve immunity and digestion
Eliminate anxiety and stress by releasing body tension and reducing stress hormones
Alleviate depression through the release of natural opiates and mood boosters
Improve sleep through the Delta brainwave
Unlock creative problem solving and insight
Release trauma and emotional blockages (It has been reported to help with PTSD)
Help someone experience a safe space to integrate complex feelings of grief, depression, or fear.
Create a sense of integrated wholeness, create emotional resiliency, and live a more balanced life.
Sound therapy has been proven to help relieve: insomnia, arthritis, chronic pain, fertility issues, fibromyalgia, cancer treatment side effects, autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, heart disease, depression and numerous emotional issues.
These aren’t just temporary benefits. Sound is cumulative therapy and with consistent exposure through public sound baths or a private sound therapy program, the brain — through neuroplasticity — can learn new behavioral patterns and create permanent body and lifestyle changes for optimum health and well-being.
At the end of Yoga Uplift Sound Baths, water is placed inside one of the crystal singing bowl and the bowl is then played for a period of time. The harmonic pure tones of the crystal bowls and intent are infused by the water and therefore its structure is changed into harmonically-infused sound healing water. This water is then used for the clients to drink at the end of the sound bath.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being, also called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit. It is thought to enhance both physical and emotional health.
Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt and elsewhere incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were also known to have both physical and psychological benefits.
Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption using products such as:
body oils, creams, or lotions for massage or topical application
hot and cold compresses
Essential oils can be used alone or in any combination. There are nearly 100 types of essential oils available. Essential oils are available online, in health food stores and in some regular supermarkets. It’s important to buy from a reputable producer to ensure you’re buying a quality product that is 100 percent natural. Uplift Yoga highly recommends DoTerra.
Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits.
These are just a a few of the benefits aromatherapy may produce:
improve overall wellbeing
improve sleep quality
reduce stress, agitation, and anxiety
soothe sore joints
You can use essential oils in any number of ways. For example, add them to body lotions or carrier oils, and then apply them topically. Try enhancing a facial toner, shampoo, or conditioner with essential oils. Or, incorporate them into liquid soap, toothpaste or mouthwash. You can also diffuse or spritz the oils throughout a room or pour them into a bath.
Most essential oils are safe to use. But there are some precautions you should take when using them, as well as side effects you should be aware of, especially if you take any prescription medications.
Don’t apply essential oils directly to your skin. Always use a carrier oil to dilute the oils. Remember to do a skin patch test before using essential oils. Since citrus essential oils may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, these oils should be avoided if you’ll be exposed to sunlight.
