The Healing Power of Sound
Can you remember the last time when you experienced moments of deep feeling, whether be it exhilaration or sorrow while hearing a piece of music to which you particularly respond? You may have found yourself weeping with joy or sadness, undergoing a catharsis that left you feeling cleansed, if only temporarily, of troubling and burdensome emotions.
So we should not underestimate that sound in its purest form such as the sound of crystal tones has great healing potential.
A sound bath is a skillful means for stress and resilience management during these times of challenges and chaos.

In our Sound Bath Circles, I will be holding a safe space for you to just lie down and rest in the warmth and comfort of your own private sanctuary. The magical crystal tones will naturally uplift you and retune your out-of-sync vibrations. When you return to your natural alignment, life flows easily with less struggle.

The profound power of Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls

Sound Circle/Bath FAQs
Sound bath is an immersion in crystalline sounds and vibrations of the Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls that are healing and transformational for your body, heart, mind and spirit.
Sound Healing is an ancient art that has been utilised for thousands of years as a tool for healing. It was rediscovered in the 1930s when an acoustic researcher found ultrasound and its medical properties.
Today this ancient art of Sound Healing has rapidly developed into a new science.
- Sonic Entrainment
Our human body down to our very DNA is crystalline in structure, causing it to respond and resonate with the extraordinary frequencies associated with quartz crystal. The power is enhanced in a Sound bath using crystal bowls of the most refined quality infused with precious metal and gemstones. These are the Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls used in May's Sound bath circles. Sonic entrainment makes it possible for a sound bath to retune our body's out-of-sync vibrations of the body back to its natural vibratory rate.
Our human body vibrates and has a natural vibratory rate called resonance. When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonate frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony or out-of-sync, we have a dis-ease. Stress, anxiety, fatigue, depression, negative emotions and thoughts- both internal and external, could disrupt the harmony to the natural resonance of our system, affecting us on all levels- physiological, psychological and spiritual,
During a Sound Bath, by virtue of sound entrainment, our body's resonance would start to 'click' with the Sound waves and this is how our vibrations are retuned to its natural rate.
- Cellular Healing Response
Sound healing can also mobilize cellular healing response. Our human body is over 70% water and since sound travels 5 times more efficiently through water than air, sound frequency stimulation directly the body is an effective means of total body stimulation at the cellular level.
The Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls used in May's Sound Bath are top grade bowls made by Crystal Tones. They are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz crystals and heated to about 4,000 degrees in a centrifugal mould and infused with precious crystals, gemstones and/minerals. The resulting 'Alchemy' tones are nothing short of incredible and are powerful tools for transformation and healing.
Some sound healers consider these bowls as medical devices as well as rare music instruments with tonal purity, refined harmonic spectrum and direct alignment with the human cellular and Universal harmony.
As our human body down to our DNA is crystalline in structure, it responds and resonates with the frequencies of quartz crystal. This is why quartz singing bowls have become of the most sought after sonic tools worldwide and advocated by experts such as Andrew Well, MD a world-renowned author and leader in the field of integrative medicine.
A sound bath is an effective way to help us manage our ongoing anxiety and stress in our lives. It relieves fatigue because the sonic vibrations put our cells to deep rest.
Through the process of sonic entrainment, sound can transform negative and repressed emotions into a state of psychological equanimity that has direct and immediate effects on our physiology e.g. the reduction of stress hormones will lead to a stronger immune system.
We will begin with a guided meditation, followed by the Sound Bath. The time of the Sound Bath itself is around 30 minutes depending on the needs particular group. It is very important that you rest and get up slowly from Sound Bath.
- Doing a Sound bath with full stomach may affect the quality of your experience, try to eat at least two hours before.
- Give yourself some time to slow down and ease into a Sound bath so you and your body are ready to embrace the sonic journey.
- Rest if you feel tired after the Sound Bath. During the Sound bath, you deep body cells are being "massaged" by the sonic waves even though you may not feel like you are doing much. As a result, your body may feel tired.
- Drink water to help the detox process.
- Be gentle and listen to your body's needs after the Sound bath
- It is recommended to have a gap of a few days between each Sound bath to give time for your body to recover from the sonic massage.
When May curates and offers a Sound bath, she also acts as a channel or conduit to bring to you the vibrations and blessings of pure and divine frequencies of the Goddess and other enlightened beings. For example, the use of her voice is a guided action.
