The sound bath is most commonly produced by the use of quartz singing crystal bowls and drums, but other instruments are also used as desired. The sounds produced helps to increase relaxation by balancing both the physical and emotional energy centers. The energy centers are also known as chakras and are thoughts to be brought into balance with the use of sound baths.
The technique of integrating sound baths in a therapeutic form has been shown to help heal trauma, insomnia, depression and others ailments. The sounds are shown to affect the frontal cortex of the brain, allowing for deeper states of consciousness, which opens up beta waves that can remove emotional barriers and allow for more opportunity for healing.
