“So, what am I going to do with a singing bowl?” We’re asked some variation of that question quite often. If you’ve never encountered one of these bowls before, it can be a bit confusing. We’ve seen people look into the bowl, or hold it up to their ear, like it’s a seashell or something, and they’re expecting to hear the ocean waves. That’s not exactly how these bowls work. When you get one of these bowls from SoPsyched, you can get a whole host of health benefits, many of which may surprise you.
Relax with Your Singing Bowl
Have you ever just picked up a guitar and strummed it? Even if you aren’t exactly waiting for your nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it can be therapeutic, taking your mind off of things. The same thing can happen with these bowls. So many folks have told us that once they feel the bowl vibrate, hearing that tone and “singing” that these bowls have been providing for literally thousands of years, you may become more conscious of your own breathing. That could lead to you feeling more relaxed in and of itself. All you have to do is make one of these bowls sing, and it can let the days’ cares literally melt away.
Possibly Help with Your Circulation and Even Your Blood Flow
That may sound like a bit much or an exaggeration, but studies have shown that it’s possible. For example, the American Journal of Health Promotion found that a session of using these bowls lowered their heart rate and blood pressure more than simply sitting around in silence did. You might hear this and think: “OK, fine. That makes sense if they were using these bowls for like, an hour or something. Of course a monotonous behavior like that would calm someone down, sure.” But, the truth is, those sessions actually were just twelve minutes in length. So, in less time than it takes you to check your email or social media could help you to lower your blood pressure. We’re not saying that you can get one of these bowls and give up on exercise and eating right or something, but every little bit helps.
