SINGING BOWLS – Not just a beautiful and relaxing sound, the vibration of the tone can help to release energy blockages, have a positive and balancing influence on brain waves, as well as having a calming effect on the nervous system. Experience this deeply relaxing music treatment that heals the body on a cellular level.
There is a very helpful explanation in a great article, Tibetan Singing Bowls – The ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation, “Since all matter is energy vibrating at different rates, by altering the rate of vibration we can change the structure of matter.

The sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex and inhibiting the stress or pain response.”
