THE BENEFITS OF GONG BATHING IN MIDLIFE

THE BENEFITS OF GONG BATHING IN MIDLIFE

 

Gong baths are a form of sound therapy, emanating from China. Their sound produces many benefits to issues experienced in midlife. It offers a natural remedy for menopause problems such as anxiety, short term memory and pain reduction. Gongs emit theta waves (sounds) that are associated with dreaming or meditative states.

They can be both gentle and nurturing as well as powerful and physical. The gong's 'sonic signature' has been described as 'expansive', 'rich', 'powerful', 'relaxing', 'layered', 'dynamic' and 'deep'.

Sound therapy supports conscious or unconscious self-reflection which can increase self-awareness and mindfulness. The gongs can provide a space where their therapeutic sound can initiate a 'conversation' within. You may see yourself more clearly through reflection and inquiry, helping you to find flow in life.

A Gong bath can offer the potential to encourage;

  • resilience
  • a shift in consciousness
  • openness to new experiences and flexibility
  • a deeper appreciation of the arts and beauty
  • cognitive flexibility
  • sociability
  • insight and transformation

In Chinese medicine different sounds affect different organs. A gong bath will resonate will with all organs and the experience will differ according to your needs. For example if you have a kidney deficiency your body will react or absorb what it needs to support it’s needs.

 

HOW TO BATHE IN GONG SOUND

 The best way to enjoy a Gong Bath is by lying down in a comfortable position in warm, comfortable clothing with blankets and cushions. A eye pillow or mask is an excellent idea and don’t forget to let others know you’re unavailable so that you can fully immerse. You’ll be in situ for a minimum of 20 minutes so it’s best to make sure you’re cosy and comfortable and as your core temperature may drop while your mind and body is busy relaxing.

If you’re online for your bath, headphones are better than earbuds. You should also let your sound practitioner know if you’re pregnant or have any health conditions. It’s a strong and moving therapy so it’s important to take it seriously.

How Jo’s Cancer Patients Changed Her Life

Her work with cancer patients, helping to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal treatment has been life changing not just for her patients but also for her.

She noticed her cancer patients often experienced immediate and intense menopause symptoms (as a side effect of their treatment) and for some their hot flushes were so overwhelming they couldn’t even drive to her clinic. Menopausal herself and rocked by her best friend’s cancer diagnosis she decided enough was enough.

Jo says:

“I looked around for effective natural solutions, aligned with my principles and ethos that I could recommend to my patients. What I found was nothing. At least nothing that was proven to be effective that women could use at home and get the same effects as seeing an acupuncturist.

That’s when I took things into my own hands and created Menopoised®. Effective, natural, side-effect free and beautiful to boot. Because, quite frankly why shouldn’t products for menopausal women look and feel gorgeous!”

Armed with her extensive knowledge, practise-based evidence and expertise in Chinese Medicine she set about creating beautiful, effective products herself under the brand name Menopoised®.
