Online Gong Bath Therapy Session | 5 Tips |Amanda Denton | Yogarise

5 simple steps to get your gong on


So you’re going to Gong? We’ve checked in with Sound Healing aficionado Amanda Denton to find out a few things you might like to know…


  • I’m a first-timer. What exactly is a gong bath and what are its benefits?

Every part of your body has its own natural frequency it vibrates at, this frequency can be thrown off balance by stress, illness and other factors. The sound of the gong creates a vibration which activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps to calm down and soothe the over stimulated sympathetic nervous system. The functional harmony created by the Gong brings about an inner stillness where deep healing can occur.


  • What do I need to do?

Precisely nothing, basically! Simply pop on your headphones, lie back on your mat (or even your bed) and enjoy. You’ll be guided to drop into the weight of your bones and find the rhythm of your natural breath, feel the support of the earth beneath you, and completely let go. 


  • Does it ‘work’ online?

We need to be able to share these powerful therapies, so I have invested in some top of the range equipment and consultation from a sound engineer – it’s taken some time to get my head around the tech but I have been fine-tuning it over the past few months. I want to make this healing process accessible – it’s something that myself and Leo Cosendai who I have trained with extensively, are very passionate about.


  • What can I do to get maximum benefit?

To experience this gong bath, get cosy. It’s an hour of stillness, so you want to be as comfortable as you can be to not be distracted and benefit as much as possible.  Wear something comfortable, grab a mat a couple of blankets, cushions, eye pillow or mask – spend some time getting yourself and your space set up and ready to enjoy the practice.
