Singing Bowls

Singing bowls, also known as Himalayan or Tibetan bowls, are an ancient way of regenerating the body and mind. It’s also a sound therapy that can provide relief from stress in the body and mind. Aside from using them as a practice of meditation, singing bowls offer physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. They come in various sizes which produce different sounds and vibrations. They’re made with various materials like copper, bronze, gold, silver, iron, and other earth metals.

How to Use One

Now that you know what singing bowls are, it’s time to learn how to use them! There are two ways to produce their vibrational sounds. A wooden or leather-wrapped mallet is used to slowly rub around the rim or outside edge in a circular motion. It’s best to use the full motion in your arm to do this for the full benefit of sound, as opposed to just using your wrist. Another option is striking the bowl with the mallet for a richer tone and vibration.
