Mid-Shore Health: Forget about Bubble Baths, Try a “Sound Bath” Instead


Sound Bath, What’s that?

According to Human Activation sonic specialist, Monte Hansen from Annapolis, MD, “A sound bath is an immersion in sound frequency that cleanses your soul.”

How can you be more clear and productive when you’re awake, and be more restful when you sleep?

Modern science now agrees that deep meditation can give us all of this and then some including, reduced blood pressure, reduced anxiety, and increased overall wellness.

Meditation! Ugh… who’s got time to learn that? Don’t you have to go to the top of the mountain to learn from some guru at an ashram?

Not really.

In the American Journal of Health Promotion, Tibetan Singing Bowls were used compared to silent meditation. Scientists found that the singing bowls produced greater decreases in blood pressure and heart rate than simply silence alone. Source

Human Activation has been featured in a recent Washington Post article in the Wellness section as the leaders in modern mindful meditation with their “sound bath” offerings.

“Sound bath meditation is like hitting the restart button when your computer is running too slow and inefficient.”

Leave your rubber ducky at home.

Bring your blankey instead, for this super relaxing immersion!

According to cutting-edge doctors from Harvard, some of the deepest most profound healing in the body is accomplished with sound frequency.

That’s old news though.

A 2nd century B.C. stone relief in the Himalayan mountains shows Buddha and his buddies playing ancient Tibetan singing bowls.

Monte will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old.

A magical alchemy of 7-12 different metals rings in the past, present, and future for our relaxing enchantment.

Even modern doctors are using these old metal bowls for healing, and they are not practicing Buddhists!

Experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present. Come be rejuvenated or just captivated by this unique musical performance.

Letters to Editor

  1. Hi, the article on the Sound Bath is great. I just want to make one correction. The Meditation Reception at The Studio in St. Michaels starts at 12:30pm not 2:30 pm.

  2. The door opens at 12:30pm not 2:30pm the first Tuesday of the month. People contact me to reserve a space and then I know how many people to set the room up for. You should come to the next one. It is life-changing. Thanks for the article and including The Studio.
