Our Therapeutic Soundbaths have all the benefits of relaxation with the addition of therapeutic reflection and enquiry as described in 1-2-1 Sound Therapy treatments below. After the session, you are invited to share your experience with the sound with the group if you wish. Sound is applied therapeutically which helps to relax the system, brainwaves can lower to that similar to meditation or to that just before you fall asleep. The sound can induce a state of relaxation and allow you to rest there, allowing cortisone, the stress hormone to reduce, blood pressure and heart rate to lower, potassium/sodium levels in the body can rebalance and cellular regeneration can take place and our autonomic nervous system to restore.The BAST British Academy of Sound Therapy's method works on all levels of being, physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically/spiritually, we create a space within which an individual may see themselves and their process more clearly, through reflection and enquiry. The sound initiates a 'conversation' with the system through the '5R's'; resonance, resistance, release, responsibility and reflection.
*The original BAST method has been shown to be, on average, 64% more relaxing than conventional relaxation methods (Cook 2009)
