The combination of Himalayan singing bowls being played as you float in a pool of alkaline water gently supported by skilled therapists offers a singular experience of deep relaxation, well-being and healing on all levels.
Facilitated by Rosie Warburton, Sound Healing Practitioner with over 20 years experience, and Licensed Massage Therapist- CE Provider # 50-9605.
In this workshop you will be introduced to two different modalities- Aquatic Therapy and Himalayan Singing Bowls- which, when combined, have a powerful effect on the recipient. We will explore the synergistic relationship between water, sound waves and the physical body. It has been well documented that simply floating in water, especially when supported either by flotation devices or a therapist, facilitates muscle relaxation and increases peripheral circulation. The reduction of gravitational forces allows deep relaxation and quiets the sympathetic nervous system, slowing the pulse and the heart rate and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.
The sonorous resonance of Himalayan singing bowls create the perfect combination of tones and frequencies to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain. They also produce a “beat frequency” which entrains the brainwaves to a deep theta state associated with deep relaxation and meditation. The frequencies of the bowls stimulate the release of endorphins and endocannabinoids, boosting the immune system and providing relief from physical and emotional pain and trauma.
When a person is floating in water and the bowls are played in the water at the same time there is an even more powerful response. Sound travels 2-5 times more quickly through water and because the body is 60-70% water and is close to the same density and elasticity it feels more of the sound. These factors combine to offer a profound experience of deep relaxation, pain relief, improved mobility, release of trauma that has been stored in the body, emotional integration and deep meditation.
All participants in the workshop will practice each aspect of this modality. You will learn to play the singing bowls in the water, how to be an effective supporting therapist and everyone will personally receive at least one full treatment in the water. Ample time will be provided for group discussion each day.
This workshop will be held at Susan Wasserman's beautiful yoga retreat and studio with a chemical-free in-ground saltwater pool.
