questions about our singing bowls?

  • What are your crystal singing bowls made of?
    The bowls are made of 99.99% pure quartz.
  • What are the benefits of Quartz?
    There are many benefits to quartz, which is no surprise that it’s one of the most commonly used crystals in modern times. It has the unique ability to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy and is used to make watches, clocks, ultrasound, radios and computer chips. Quartz has the ability to amplify, transmit, store and transform energy. It also has the power to activate, magnify and harmonise other crystals, so placing crystals around your bowl when playing is great! Quartz harmonises and balances all the main chakras and also cleanses the aura. This makes it a perfect tool for meditation.
  • What sizes do they come in?
    The bowls comes in sizes 6 inches up to 10 inches
  • How do singing bowls work?
    The crystal singing bowls, when played, produce vibrations / frequencies that relax the mind and the body. The quartz crystalline structure of the bowls works at a cellular level.
  • What frequency are the bowls?
    The bowls are tuned to 440 hz, which is the most widely accepted tuning standard in modern music. You’ll find a lot of other instruments such as guitars are tuned to 440hz. The standard pitch of 440 Hz relates to an A note (4th octave).
  • Do the singing bowls work with the chakras?
    Yes, the following notes correspond to each of these chakras / energy centers: B note - crown chakra A note - third eye G - throat F - heart E - solar plexus D - sacral chakra C note - root chakra
  • What accessories does my bowl come with?
    Each bowl comes with an O-ring which stops your bowl from wobbling and keeps it stable, plus two mallets to play your bowl with.
  • How do I clean my bowl?
    Ideally you should clean your bowl with a white cotton cloth and nothing too abrasive. Or you can use a duster if it’s collected dust inside. Try to not use any cleaning products, especially anything harsh as it may damage the bowl. You can wet the cloth slightly and use lemon essential oil if you need to remove something sticky/ harder to remove. But try to keep it nice and simple and use a clean cotton cloth (I find handkerchiefs work really well as they’re nice and soft). Quartz itself does not require cleansing. So you do not need to cleanse your singing bowl like you would with other crystals if someone else has been playing it. Just give it a light chime and the vibrations will do the job for you!
  • How do I pack my bowls?
    Depending on the size of your bowls they can be stacked inside one another. Always keep your bowl protected in its plastic bag, or swap for a silk bag instead and ensure there are no gaps between each bowl that could cause them to knock together. Always use extra foam/ packing so that your bowls are snug and don't move around. It’s best to store your bowl in a bag or box if you have animals or children running around to avoid them knocking anything over. Leaving it on a shelf is fine if it feels safe there, as long as it’s not in direct sunlight for long periods of time.
  • How to choose the right bowl for me?
    There is no set guide or right or wrong way to choose your bowl; it all comes down to personal preference and using your intuition to tune into what feels right for you. When I hear the sounds I have a better understanding of what I feel drawn to. Understanding the sizes of the bowls can help: The smaller 6” and 7” bowls, or high octave bowls like the 5th octave, are accelerating bowls - above the body 7”, 8” and 9” bowls are centering (in the body). Mid-octave bowls like the 4th octave are also known as centering Larger bowls, 10 inches + and lower octave bowls (3rd octave) are more grounding
  • Which bowl should I choose as a beginner?
    There is no set bowl that's suited specifically for beginners, as I shared above it often comes down to personal preference and which note/ sound resonates for you. However, if you need more of a guide the 7 or 8 imch bowls are centering so can be a good place to start as these work within the body.
  • Can I play the singing bowls alongside other instruments?
    Yes most defintely. The bowls can be played alongside other instruments and compliment many practices. They work really nicely if you sing alongside your bowl, or play your bowl in conjunction with chimes, a harp or a gong.
  • Can I play my bowls outdoors/ in sunlight?
    Yes, you can play your bowls outside and in sunlight. Birds and animals just love the sounds of the bowls! Especially horses, they become so inquisitive and dogs and cats love a good nap by the bowls. It’s best not to leave your bowl in direct sunlight for long periods of time however as the rainbow tint may change colour over time.
  • Which other practices do the singing bowls compliment?
    The bowls compliment many practices and we've seen clients use the bowls in conjuntion with many theraputic and holistic practices such as: Hypnotherapy CBT EFT Psychotherapy Cranial sacral therapy Meditation Mindfulness Movement Yoga Kundalini yoga Yin yoga Cacao ceremonies Coaching Reflexology Aromatherapy Reiki Massage Facials Healing touch Music therapy, to name just a few....

  • What are your pyramids made of?
    The Crystal Quartz pyramids are made of 99.99% pure quartz. The Quartz Pyramids are built to match the exact geometric mastery of the Great Pyramids which are known to have many healing abilities.
  • What sizes do they come in?
    The Quartz Pyramids come in sizes 6 inches up to 14 inches.
  • How do pyramids work?
    The Quartz Pyramids when chimed produce vibrations / frequencies that relax the mind and the body. The quartz crystalline structure of the pyramids works at a cellular level.
  • What frequency are the pyramids?
    Each Quartz Pyramid produces different frequencies therefore these cannot be tuned so each Quartz pyramid is unique.
  • How do I play my Quartz Pyramid?
    Playing the Quartz Pyramids are really easy, all you need to do is hold up your pyramid by the string and give the base a light chime and your Quartz Pyramid will start to sing. They can sing for over a minute so it's nice to move the Quartz Pyramid over someone's (or your own) body.
  • What is sound therapy / sound healing?
    Sound healing has been around for centuries. The ancient Egyptians used something called toning, which was the manipulation of vowel sounds to produce a healing effect. And in ancient Greece, music was used to treat mental disorders. Sound healing is the use of sound vibrations / frequencies to relax the mind and the body. As for what’s going on in our bodies, crystal bowl and gong master Malbert Lee notes that “the adult body is around 75% water, and water is a great conductor for sound vibration. When vibrations travel through the body, they promote circulation, energy flow and rejuvenation. The frequency of the sound synchronises with the brainwaves and activates de-stress responses in the body.”
  • What are the benefits of sound healing?
    Receiving the bowls with someone is playing for you takes you to a whole other level because it enables your brainwaves to drop into a deep state of relaxation, although playing the bowls for yourself also has many benefits and will also help you to relax. Some of the many benefits of sound meditation include: lower stress and anxiety levels less headaches and migraines (something I personally noticed) a reduction of pain lower blood pressure less mood swings lower cholesterol improved sleep Improved focus and concentration at work
  • Which sound healing instruments can support healing?
    These days, we tend to encounter sound healing in the form of singing bowls, voice, mantra, chanting, gongs, chimes, harps, Quartz Crystal Pyramids, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks.
  • What are healing frequencies?
    Healing frequencies have existed for hundreds of years. Everything in the universe, including us, vibrates at a unique frequency. Some of the well-known healing frequencies are: 963 Hz: Connects to Higher Self, Oneness. 852 Hz: Brings you back to a spiritual order 741 Hz: Detoxifies Cells & Organs, Self Expression 639 Hz: Brings Love & Compassion into your relationships 528 Hz: Transformation and DNA repair 432 Hz: Can create feelings of peace and well-being. Transmits healing energies due to its pure tone of mathematics fundamental to nature. 417 Hz: Wipes out negativity and facilitates change 396 Hz: Eliminates Fear 285 Hz: Heals tissues and organs 174 Hz: Relieves pain and stress 10 Hz: Meditative state
  • How does sound healing / frequency effect our brain waves?
    Different frequencies have the ability to change our brainwaves and subtly work through the body. We usually start in a waking conscious state (known as beta) and then slowly drift into a more relaxed state (known as the alpha state) - this is the juicy zone where we get inspirations and can drift off into a daydream. We then shift to the Theta state where we are in a state of meditation and lastly, certain frequencies can take you to the delta state, to a place of deep sleep and where deep healing can take place.
  • What is a sound bath?
    A Sound Bath is an acoustic meditative experience where you lie down, or sit and are “bathed” in sound waves. There's actually no water or bath included in a sound bath :) The sound practitioner aims to guide you into a deep meditative state where your brain waves will start to slow down, your body will start to relax and your attention will focus more on your inner world. Each person’s experience is unique. Some people see colours in their inner mind during the sound bath, while others receive insights, realisations or clarity over something that has been worrying them. Sessions typically last around 60mins
  • Does sound healing help you to sleep?
    Sound healing has been proven to help with insomnia and sleep problems by essentially lowering your BPM and relaxing the mind. The use of binaural beats is proven to be very effective. Binaural beats stimulate the brain into a specific brain state by using difference frequencies to encourage your brain waves to align to the frequency of the beat, thus calming the mind and helping you to sleep better.
  • Does sound healing help with depression/ anxiety?
    Sound Healing frequencies can help reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. Certain frequencies help to entrain your brain waves to shift to a more relaxed state which can help promote feelings of relaxation, happiness, peace and well-being.
  • What are the Contraindications around Sound Healing?
    1 - Epilepsy – some forms of epilepsy may be triggered by sound. If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy please consult with your doctor first to make sure it is safe for you to attend. 2 -Pregnancy during the first 12 weeks – sound baths should be safe during pregnancy but please do your own research if you feel concerned, or consult with your doctor before booking. The singing bowls will never be placed on your body and will be played at a minimum of 20cm distance from you. 3 -Implants, plates or pacemakers – It is advisable to keep a minimum distance of 20 cm from the singing bowls when attending. Please consult with your doctor whether a sound bath is safe for you. No medical claims are made about the use of crystal singing bowls and they are not to be used in replacement of any medication you might be taking.
  • Would you advise getting my singing bowls insured?
    Yes, especially if you're going to be travelling to different places with them. I recommend Allianz Musical Insurance (I use them). They specialise in instruments and can insure you whilst travelling and abroad.
  • What public liability insurance would you recommend?
    I would recommend Balens Ltd as they specialise in Health and Well-Being and are also reasonably priced. If you're running any kind of event then you'll definitely need public liability insurance.
  • Do you offer any trainings?
    I don't offer any certified trainings, however I do run an 'Introduction to Sound Healing' workshop.
