Why not shed the stress of the week and join me for an alternative Friday night.
As you lay down under your soft blanket, I'll guide you through a Reiki activated relaxation enabling you to stop that whirring mind, relax your body and let go of the stress of the week.
What's a gong bath?
Don't worry, there's no water involved and you get to keep your clothes on :-)
Sound has been used for thousands of years for therapeutic purposes. As you bathe in the deep vibrations of the gong, all the cells in the body begin to resonate, stimulating the vegas nerve (which runs from your brain stem to your abdomen) which controls your bodies relaxation response, helps prevent inflammation in the body and can slow your heart rate. Therapeutic sounds have been shown to inhibit the stress or pain response as well as having a positive effect on your heart and respiratory rates. They entrain the brain to theta brain wave frequencies where visualisation and the creative power of your mind starts. As you relax deeper you may find you enter a trance-like state, or are able to access different levels of consciousness not explored before.
People often report deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and deeper connections to their intuition.
You'll feel better for coming and if you wanna go out for dinner or drinks afterward, you're perfectly placed on Kingsland Road.
“The gong is more accurately a force of energy, "like a divine engine, affecting the body's meridians. By and large, after it's over, you just feel great, you feel like you've been healed by the spirit of nature." Don Conreau
"The effects lasted well into the evening and even the next morning, when I felt an incredible sense of calm and focus." Priyam Sharma - from Huffington Post article Why every stressed out person should try a gong meditation.
"Before I came to Rachael's gong bath, I was busy and stressed out! I was conscious of time and feeling too wired to relax. It was a beautifully run gong bath. Really relaxing, gentle and healing. The gentle, calm ambiance you managed to create, is the best thing. It was a really lovely event, Rachael. Thank you."
