Gonging is a type of sound therapy that has been used to manage a variety of health conditions. This practice stems from the understanding that all matter vibrates at different frequencies, including our very own cells. Factors such as stress, depression and disease cause our bodies to vibrate at ultra-low frequencies.
Gong meditation is a unique type of sound meditation that involves playing a gong with an aim to bring about therapeutic healing. This practice is also referred to as a gong bath, mainly because an individual is usually bathed in the meditation gong sound waves. While this practice is referred to as meditation, strictly speaking it is really a separate activity that can be practiced but is not a substitute for genuine mindfulness meditation practice.
