Sound healing, opens a new window is a type of guided meditation that uses sound and vibrations to restore your body and mind. The vibrations provide a focus for an individual's meditation practice and promote relaxation and stress relief. San Mateo County Libraries, along with Joseph Coffin of THE MATS Pacifica, opens a new window look forward to sharing this ancient practice with some of our library communities this September.
Tibetan singing bowls come in different sizes and are often made of bronze or crystal. When the bowl is struck by a mallet, it produces vibrations. Placing the bowls on a person’s body allows them to physically connect with the vibrations and hear them. Some studies have found a link between sound healing and a reduction in tension and anxiety.
