Tibetan singing bowls, also known as Himalayan bowls, date back to at least 3000 years ago, and are used by musicians, sound healers and yoga practitioners for therapy and meditation, and are often played to start and end a yoga practice session.
When played, Tibetan singing bowls vibrate and produce a deep, rich tone, transporting us to calmness, stillness, and peacefulness.
In alternative medicine, many proponents claim that these vibrations can produce beneficial changes within the body by reducing stress, "harmonizing" the cells, and "balancing the body's energy system." Some also claim that Tibetan singing bowls can stimulate the immune system and produce beneficial changes in brain waves.
Almost everyone agrees that they induce a calming, meditative, and restorative experience.
