For centuries, sound healing has been used to help achieve a soothing effect on the mind and body. It assists with providing a natural way of cleansing negative energy and emotions. The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore is incorporating these time-honoured techniques and practices with its new Sound Healing treatment.
The unique experience assists guests to achieve a restorative, peaceful state through beautiful sounds and vibrations that come from custom singing bowls made from silica sand, naturally occurring broken down quartz. Vibrations from the therapist’s techniques with the bowls alleviate stressful thoughts and transforms the inner energies of the body, mind, heart, and spirit.
The treatment features special bowls, mallets, and cushions. The hand-hammered bowls are crafted with different designs in the metal to assist in carrying the sound vibrations throughout the bowl, which corresponds to the chakras. As the vibrations from the sound of the singing bowls runs through the body, the chakras rebalance, allowing them to run at optimal tone, which then re-harmonises and re-calibrates the body’s energy fields. The bowls are placed on tiny cushions and gently set on and around the body. The mallets used to create the vibrations in the bowls feature teak wood and suede.
The various mallets used by the therapist produce beautifully peaceful, clear, harmonic sounds. Small tingsha bells are made of bronze cymbals, used to begin and end the treatment session as they produce a high-pitched tone with a soothing, rich sound to awaken the spirit. Each of the bowls has its own unique sound character to assist in creating a wealth of emotional sensations and feelings.
Some of the key benefits of sound healing include an increase in energy, creativity, and motivation; removal of toxins; stimulation of circulation; overall stress reduction; and deep relaxation. Sound therapy has been known to help treat such conditions, including stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, sleep disorders, and pain.
The unique healing session is offered as a 60-minute private session for USD 185 or a 90-minute private session for USD 275. Group sessions are also available as a 60-minute session for USD 210 or a 90-minute session for USD 300.
