Ready to make your blood cells bounce?
Have you ever wondered, when you’re feeling sluggish, exactly how your blood cells are doing?
One of the most fascinating worlds is one that normally remains completely invisible to us. And that’s the world within.
If you’re interested in your own wellbeing, it’s worth exploring and understanding this inner world… and in particular, the capacity of sound vibration to heal us, inside and out.
In this context, it’s fair to say there is far more to a sound bath that meets the ear.
Increasingly, in recent years, different kinds of health professionals - including therapists and experts in pedagogics - have been struck by the frequently astonishingly positive effects of sound vibration.
In my own work, I have come to make sound baths an intrinsic part of my bespoke sessions with small groups. To me, the capacity of sound baths to help achieve deep healing for my clients comes as no surprise. After all:
> Sound baths have a balancing effect on the entire system - regenerating the body and protecting against over-stress.
> The sound of the sound bowl is a monochrome sound - like the natural sound of the rushing of the sea, or the whistling of the wind. It also returns us to the womb, where we began to hear long before we were born.
> The loosening of tissue tension contributes to a reduction of physical tensions.
> Beyond its capacity to relax, sound baths have the power to revitalise - to clear brain fog and leave us with a renewed capacity to see more clearly the life choices that will serve us.
In your very first sound bath, expect to experience a positive impact.
It is remarkable enough to see the difference that people feel after a sound bath. It becomes even more remarkable when that same difference is witnessed at a micro level.
Under a microscope, the ‘before and after’ picture might look something like this. Before the sound bath, your blood cells might appear slightly stuck together with limited movement. And afterwards? You could expect to see them being freed up and vibrant. Bouncing, in fact.
What’s true for us at a micro level is true at a macro level.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at the power of sound (and vibration) to have an astonishing impact on our wellbeing. After all, we are 80% water. And if we could look at the deepest level, we'd see that each of us is essentially a vibration… “nothing spinning at great speed”.
It’s not just creaky joints that restrict our movement. To thrive, we need to look deeper, and to understand more fully how to look after and optimise our whole body.

NB: Breath work and sound baths are integral to how I work with clients. Yet these are not my only focus. As I see it, it is vital to take a holistic approach that also incorporates movement and nutrition.
