Peter Halley Therapies
  • Resonance Therapy

    Resonance Therapy

    Using Meditation Singing Bowls Resonance Therapy is a deeply relaxing treatment.

    The sound and vibrations massage and shower the body at many levels such as memory, chakra, emotional and aura. Using the basic principles of sound therapy and vibrational techniques, the bowls offer a gentle, healing way of working with the body. Sounds can trigger sense memory from both this life and past lifes, pulling forward images that resonate at soul level.

    Each Chakra resonates at it's own musical tone and our auras and physical bodies can cloud the clarity of resonance. Resonance Therapy attunes and clears the bodies own vibrations to align and free the Chakra points. Physical blockages in the body that cause illness, pain or discomfort can be cleared by the vibrating bowl being applied directly to that point on the body.

    Once sites of imbalance/blockage are determined those heavier frequencies are broken down throughout the Auric field and the Chakras thus returning the natural flow of energy to greater wellbeing.

Singing Bowl Information

History of Tibetan Singing Bowls

The first thing to clear up is that they are not truly “Tibetan” Singing Bowls, but more accurately “Himalayan” Singing Bowls. Since singing bowls have a very mysterious history and it is sometimes hard to find information about them, in fact there is literally no mention of them in the Tibetan Buddhist canon. They can be found in both monasteries and homes, but when questioned about their existence vague answers are usually given. It has been rumoured that it is actually forbidden for monks to speak about the singing bowls. Some say that the bowls are used by high Lamas in secret rituals, which gives them the ability to travel to different realms and dimensions. Some say the each Buddhist monk had a bowl from which they ate, drank and used to meditate, however the size and weight of some bowls would not make this practical!

In Buddhism, and in Hinduism, sound is an important part of spiritual practice. In the Buddhist doctrine, there are nine methods of realization of reaching enlightenment. The seventh way is sound. For this reason, the sound produced by the bowl was used by Buddhist practitioners as part of their religious rituals and music.

The sound made by the bowls is both captivating and calming, and the bowls are frequently used as a meditation aid. One reason for this is that the sound emitted by the bowls seems to instantly instil a deep sense of peace. Hand made singing bowls in particular seem to induce a deep relaxation and I believe this is due to the fact that each hand made bowl produces a number of different musical notes when struck delivering a harmonic sound. The Singing Bowls were also used during meditation practice to reinforce one of the most important concepts of Buddhism, that of being "mindful", of staying in the present moment.

Each bowl is made from a combination of seven different metals. According to tradition, the seven metals correspond with each of the planets, gold for the Sun, silver for the Moon, mercury for well, Mercury, copper for Venus, iron for Mars, tin for Jupiter, and lead for Saturn.
In the end one thing remains certain, that singing bowls are a very powerful spiritual tool.

Types of Bowls

Singing Bowls fall into 2 categories – hand hammered or machine finished. Within each category, there are number of different styles / shapes of bowl.

Hand Hammered

These bowls come in 2 main shapes. Usually left plain with the varied natural colours and textures on show.

Lhasa style - rounded with quite a high wall. 
Om style - open flat bowls. 
Dapple style – large bowl with very thick wall. Darkly coloured with the large hammer marks creating a dappled effect.

Machine finished

These bowls are very smooth with a uniform thickness and often with an ornate decoration. They are usually surprisingly heavy compared to the hand hammered bowl.

Om style – once again open flat bowl
Japan style – deep, straight edged usually coated but plain.
Lotus style – curved / cupped wall with the edge of the bowl pointing toward the centre.
