Singing Bowls

Singing bowls are actually a type of bell known as a “standing bell.”

The bowls are played either by rubbing a mallet around the rim, or striking the side of the bowl with the mallet. The two playing methods produce quite distinctive sounds.

Though they are often referred to as Tibetan Singing Bowls, they are more accurately called Himalayan Bowls, as they are present throughout the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, India, and Nepal. They can also be found in various manifestations in Japan, Korea, China, and Mongolia.

 

How does sound healing work?

When used in sound healing, singing bowls are sometimes referred to as healing bowls or chakra bowls. In sound healing, or “sound massage,” the bowls are played around and sometimes placed on the body of the receiver of the treatment. The practitioner uses the resonance of the bowls’ harmonic vibrations within the human body for balancing and relaxation. Some sound healers seek to activate or balance the body’s chakras, or energy centers.
