Medically reviewed by Elena Klimenko, MD
Tibetan singing bowls are a type of bowl that vibrates and produces a rich, deep tone when played. Also known as singing bowls or Himalayan bowls, Tibetan singing bowls are said to promote relaxation and offer powerful healing properties.
Buddhist monks have long used Tibetan singing bowls in meditation practice. In addition, some wellness practitioners (including music therapists, massage therapists, and yoga therapists) use Tibetan singing bowls during treatment.
Everyone has more or less various kinds of stress. We often encounter problems such as tension, anxiety, fear, irritability, low mood, insomnia, and even depression. Accumulation of these psychological problems may induce other diseases such as coronary heart disease, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, etc. What is gratifying is that more and more people are paying more attention to their mental health. They start to try meditation to adjust their emotions in time before everything gets worse.
Through meditation, blood pressure can be lowered, which has a positive physical effect on the brain and body. The Tibetan singing bowl is a very good meditation tool. The overtones produced by the singing bowls can help the body relax well, and it is widely used in meditation and sound healing.
Any Research about Tibetan Singing Bowl?
A study published in NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) 2016 Sep 30 named Effects of Singing Bowl Sound Meditation on Mood, Tension, and Well-being said Tibetan singing bowls can significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood. “This study examined the effects of sound meditation, specifically Tibetan singing bowl meditation, on mood, anxiety, pain, and spiritual well-being. As compared with premeditation, following the sound meditation participants reported significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood. Tibetan singing bowl meditation may be a feasible low-cost low technology intervention for reducing feelings of tension, anxiety, and depression, and increasing spiritual well-being. This meditation type may be especially useful in decreasing tension in individuals who have not previously practiced this form of meditation. “In summary, this observational study found significant beneficial effects of Tibetan singing bowl meditations on a number of markers related to well-being.”
Another research published in the American Journal of Health Promotion in 2014 Physiological and Psychological Effects of a Himalayan Singing Bowl in Meditation Practice: A Quantitative Analysis.
This study examined the benefits of starting a directed relaxation session with 12 minutes of singing bowls and found a greater reduction in systolic blood pressure and heart rate compared to silence before a directed relaxation session.
What Are The Functions of Singing Bowls?
1. Promote Deep Relaxation and Improving Sleep
Holding a singing bowl in the palm of your hand and using a wooden mallet or ‘striker’ in the other hand as if you are holding a pen, by gently and slowly going around the edge of the bowl with the mallet in a clockwise direction, the bowl will start to ‘sing.’ As you hear the wonderful tone and feel the bowl vibrate, you will become more conscious of your breathing and feel more relaxed. This calming sound coupled with your breathing can help to release tension and promote a wonderful sense of calm and relaxation and improve your sleep.
2. Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Hypnotic sound from a singing bowl helps to clear your mind of any stress and anxiety. The resonance of the bowl synchronizes brain waves to induce a deep meditative and peaceful state. Gently strike the side of the bowl once or twice to fill your room with the beautiful sound of the bowl, this almost feels like it clears the room of any possible negative energy.
3. Chakra Balancing
In the Indian system of healing, when a physical dysfunction occurs, it is believed that one or more chakras are blocked, or unbalanced. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones that the bowls produce has a direct positive effect on balancing the chakras. When used as part of chakra balancing, singing bowls are said to have the ability to adjust and balance the sine waves of each chakra. The frequency from a singing bowl is able to travel from chakra to chakra, self-balancing.
4. Aid The Immune System
It is said that the vibrations from a singing bowl can also help to stimulate the immune system. Every part of our body is vibrating. The sound frequencies created by a singing bowl help to restore, optimize and balance the flow of energy in the parts of the body where this is required. One should always play a singing bowl in the clockwise direction, as the energy in a human body also flows in a clockwise direction.
5. Help You ‘Get In The Zone’
Singing bowls cause the brain to switch to Theta brainwave frequencies that heighten one’s clarity, intuition, as well as deep peaceful and meditative states. Scientists have discovered the upper end of the theta brainwave range produced by a singing bowl what is considered vital to the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. This is referred to as “being in the zone.”After using the singing bowl, you’ll feel a wonderful sense of clarity and focus. This is another reason why our customers love to use a singing bowl as a part of their morning routine.
6. Improve Circulation and Blood Flow
The study mentioned above which was published in the American Journal of Health Promotion in 2014 found a greater reduction in systolic blood pressure and heart rate after a 12-minute relaxation session of singing bowls compared to silence. The sound from a bowl can reduce brain activity and therefore slow down our respiration and heart rate.
7. Reducing depression
The study mentioned above said that singing bowl therapy helps to produce beneficial changes in brain waves and reduce symptoms of depression and finally improve one's mood.
8. Balancing and harmonizing the body
Many proponents claim that the vibrations of a singing bowl can produce beneficial changes in the body by "harmonizing" the cells and "balancing the body's energy system.
