IN-HOUSE: GONG BATH SOUND SANCTUARY WITH ALICIA

Alicia Davies

A Gong Bath is a profoundly relaxing experience. Washed by waves of sound, the body, mind and spirit enter a state of cohesion, while the vibrations of the powerful Planet Gongs and other healing instruments cause the cells to resonate sympathetically. It’s a fast track to deep meditation, perfect for quieting the busy mind, and stimulating for the body’s innate healing abilities.
If it is the first time you’ve tried the experience, the power of a Gong Bath - sometimes known as sound massage - maybe something of a surprise. The sounds of the gong vary dramatically from the quietest whisper to a primal roar; a wall of sound that resonates everything it touches, including the particles that make up our physical bodies. The Gong’s frequencies are cleansing and purifying, detoxing, relaxing, and stimulating, depending on the state in which you arrive for your session. All that is required of you is to turn up, lie down, and chill out.

The Gong Bath/ and guided meditation sessions are run by Alicia Davies, a practicing professional musician, artist and writer who was drawn to sound healing after experiencing some major life traumas of her own. She is firmly of the belief, as Edgar Cayce once said, that ‘Sound will be the future of medicine.’ Alicia completed her advanced Gong Practitioner training with Mark Swan, who trained under Don Conreaux, Grand Gong Master and the originator of the Gong Bath practice. During the recent health crisis, Alicia rebranded her business from Earth Song Sound Healing to Hush Hour.

These sessions are for anyone over the age of 18 (subject to the following health disclaimer):

Gong Baths and guided meditations are normally safe for all. However, Gong Bathing is not advised for those who are in the first or third trimester of pregnancy, have a pacemaker, or who suffer from Menieres syndrome, have a history of psychotic episodes, or who experience epileptic seizures in the state between sleeping and waking. This is because the effect of the sound vibrations and the guided meditation can act as a trigger. You are responsible for consulting your medical practitioner before attending if you have any concerns regarding your mental or physical health, and for disclosing any such conditions before the event begins. No guarantee of cure is implied, and Hush Hour cannot be held responsible for any unexpected or unwanted effects that may arise as a result of taking part in a session of Guided Meditation and/or Gong Bath. Please note: this work is not a substitute for therapy or trauma healing. Alicia is not a mental health professional, but a guide offering opportunities to enhance wellbeing and deepen personal spiritual connections and practice.
