The singing bowls produce vibrations that can impact our nervous system and influence our relaxation reflex to inhibit the stress and pain response.
The singing bowls are used for healing based on the idea that illness is caused by a hindrance to the energy flow in the body. Energy flow is restored to the parts of the body where it is required by the sound frequencies produced by the singing bowls. Singing bowls are also known to stimulate our brainwaves. The pulsation of sound they produce entrains our brains. This pulsating tone feels good and helps one to relax. This is the reason it is used for brainwave entertainment.
Chakras are a connection between the spiritual aspect and the physical aspect of our being. The endocrine gland is associated with the seven main chakras. A blocked, dysfunctional, or imbalanced chakra causes a physical dysfunction.. To ensure that the endocrine gland and the associated structures and organs are balanced and start to function, chakra balancing is done. The singing bowls produce sound waves in the form of sine waves which correct frequencies in the unbalanced chakras to bring them back to normal functioning. In certain religious practices, singing bowls are used. During the rituals and chanting, the singing bowls are struck.
