If you imagine the human body made up of bones, muscles, tissue and above all water, you will see how sound can make us vibrate inside, almost at a cellular level.

Sound baths allow the mind to disconnection deep.

The sound during baths does not only enter through the ears but all over the skin, becoming a great receiver, like when we were floating in our mother's womb. The sound passes through the skin and the body vibrates and feels.

Benefits of sound baths

Relaxation of the physical body

The sound It is one of the most used relaxation methods due to its effectiveness. It connects us with our essence. Through sound baths you obtain a relaxation of the physical body very deep and lasting.

According to him yoga, each hour of relaxation with a sound bath, yoga nidra, deep relaxation or in a meditative state, is equivalent to 8 hours of deep sleep. The reason is that our body and mind reach the absolute disconnection which allows all systems to renew themselves: hormonal, digestive, respiratory systems, etc.

Clearing mental noise

Through pleasant sounds and other higher ones, such as bineural techniques, mental noise disappears. The incessant flow of thoughts focuses on the sounds through curiosity, surprise, and a sense of rest.
