The Gongs


The sounds emanating from the gongs are difficult for the human brain to follow. You may drift off to a deep relaxing sleep or meditative state. This may happen a few times during a gong bath session and everyone’s experience will be different. It will also be different for the same person each time that they have a gong bath. It is very good at relieving stress, easing pain, and when the planetary gongs are used they can result in psychological and emotional changes.The Paiste Gongs that I use play during a session are a mixture of planet, symphonic tam tam and wind gongs.

Paiste Symphonic Gong – 38” Symphonic gongs contain the fullest range of tones; these create a mysterious, expanding and harmonious blend of resonating tones, bringing wisdom and purity. The Symphonic gong is an amazing healing gong and a fantastic 'all-rounder'.
Symphonic gong holds the space for the shamanic journeys
