Are Crystal Sound Baths the new meditation for 2022?
In 2021, we were meditating with crystals. In 2022, we're bathing in them.
At the end of last year, we hosted our very first Crystal Sound Bath at Twiin. Crystal sound meditation is such a unique and effective form of relaxation, and many of you who came were understandably keen to know more! We reached out to Laura who leads these meditations to find out exactly what the practice and experience involves.
 
What is Crystal Sound bath meditation? Hint: No Swimsuit Required.
0
Crystal sound meditation is a form of mediation where an experienced practitioner plays special bowls made of pure quartz. The sound waves and vibrations emanating from crystal bowls slows down the listeners brain waves helping them achieve a meditative state. The session normally lasts about an hour and results in a deep sense of wellbeing and calm.
Why is it different from normal meditation? Hint: The crystals do more work than you.

Traditional meditation relies on the participant being able to achieve the meditative state by shutting down external thoughts and brain wave activity. It can take time and skill to master. With sound meditation the sound instruments do the work of slowing down the brain waves- without any work from the participant, making it far easier to achieve.

What kind of crystals are you using and why those specifically?
0
The classic crystal bowls are generally made of pure quartz and are opaque white in colour. There is a premium category of singing bowls Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowl (which we used for Twiin) which are 99.992% pure quartz infused with precious crystals, gemstones and/or minerals. Each alchemy bowl is different with infused with elements as diverse as Platinum, Gold, Titanium, Silver, Palladium, Moldavite, Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, Rose, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Iron, Indium and many more. Each bowl will be a unique and have a different colour and set of healing properties according to the mineral.

 How did you get into this profession?

I had the good fortune to go to a wellness retreat in Mexico where they offered me this therapy one lunch time. I was quite stressed at the time and extremely sceptical. When I woke up from the hour long session, I thought I’d been asleep for about 10 hours and felt refreshed and centred in a way I didn’t remember feeling! I wanted to introduce this amazing therapy to the UK and help people relax.

 

What other kind of meditation can you recommend to others who don’t have access to crystal sound baths?

I’ve personally struggled with meditation (hence getting into sound baths.) Many meditation apps including Calm carry sound bath series which are helpful-but not quite as effective (as you don’t get the vibrations.) Gong baths work in the same way as a crystal sound bath so definitely check out one of these if available in your area.
