BLOG 222: THE 5 BENEFITS OF USING ALCHEMY CRYSTAL BOWLS WITH A FACE YOGA PRACTICEJul 03, 2023
One of the highlights of last year for me was training as an Alchemy Crystal Bowl Practitioner and incorporating this into my face yoga and yoga teaching.
Today I wanted to share with you some of the benefits of sound healing and crystal bowls which I have personally experienced and also observed with my clients (plus share a bit of science too!)
1. Stress Reduction: Alchemy Crystal Bowl sound healing helps us experience deep relaxation and reduces stress levels. The soothing vibrations and tones emitted by the crystal bowls have a calming effect on the nervous system, slowing down our heart rate and lowering cortisol levels. This promotes a sense of tranquility and overall well-being. When you finish a session (especially one that involves lying under a cosy blanket) there is a deep sense of peace at a deep cellular level.
2. Enhanced Mindfulness: Integrating Crystal Bowls into my Face Yoga sessions helps to enhance self awareness and mindfulness. By guiding my clients to focus on the sounds and vibrations, they are able to let go of distracting thoughts and be fully present in the moment. This cultivates clarity of mind and an inner sense of peace (which let’s face it, we all need a bit of!)
3. Improved Sleep Quality: I’ve observed that incorporating Crystal Bowl sound healing into my practice helps my clients achieve a more restful and rejuvenating sleep. I also notice when I play them in my own practice too, my sleep quality improves. The gentle tones of the crystal bowls relax our minds and bodies, setting the stage for deep slumber. This improvement in sleep quality positively impacts so many aspects of overall health and wellness.
4. Emotional Healing: Through the use of Alchemy Crystal Bowls, I have witnessed emotional healing in my clients. The vibrations of the bowls resonate with our energy centres or Chakras, allowing for the release of emotional blockages and promoting emotional balance. Sometimes we can feel big emotions after a sound healing session which perhaps had felt stuck before and are now coming to the surface to be released. This may not feel comfortable in the moment but overall it really helps with our self-awareness, self-acceptance, and facilitates healing on a much deeper emotional and spiritual level.
5. Enhanced Focus and Clarity: Adding Alchemy Crystal Bowl sound healing to my sessions has really helped both myself and my clients feel a sense of focus and clarity after a sound bath (sound bath is the name we give a crystal bowl session and has nothing to do with an actual bath!). The reason for this is most likely because the harmonious vibrations produced by the crystal bowls during this sound bath stimulate brainwave activity, inducing a state of relaxed alertness and improved cognitive function. This heightened mental state can be really helpful in the hours and days following a sound bath as it can benefits tasks requiring concentration, creativity, and problem-solving.
It’s really important to mention though, as with any practice, individual experiences may vary. Sound healing has been a wonderful addition to my face yoga and yoga teaching, complementing and amplifying the benefits of these practices for a holistic wellness experience.
