Sound baths aren’t a new concept. In fact, they’ve been used for thousands of years by a multitude of global cultures. It’s long been recognized that music has healing abilities. We see it in regular events like singing our children to sleep, helping our plants grow, and even calming our pets while we’re at work. So, why wouldn’t sounds help us feel better as well?
Sound baths focus on the use of unique sounds and frequencies that reduce stress and lower feelings of anxiety. At Halo Salt Spa, we combine this treatment with the healing power of our salt room to detoxify your body, while the sounds detoxify your mind.

It’s About More Than Just Healing
The first thing to understand about sound baths, is they aren’t just for healing. They also open your mind to self-discovery and spirituality. Much like any form of meditation, the sounds provide mental clarity and allow you to see more deeply into yourself and the universe around you.
As sound baths aren’t a Western invention, by initiating this therapy, you also open the door to cultural exploration. While the modern singing bowls of Tibet only date back to the 1970s as we know them, the discovery of the healing powers of bells is ancient, beginning in the Shang Dynasty during the 16th century BC. This is when early bronze bells called Nao (standing bells), were used.
Benefits of Sound Baths
You’ve already learned some of the amazing qualities and advantages of sound baths, such as self-discovery, spirituality, and cultural exploration. Some other more physical benefits include:
The sounds received during your sound bath encourage your body’s natural response to soothing stimuli. As you listen, you’ll feel the tension melt away, replaced with the ability to focus solely on the moment and take in the unique music around you. With this relaxation, stress and anxiety fade, leaving you rejuvenated and aware.
Muscle Pain Relief
Believe it or not, the combination of our salt room and sound bath promotes natural pain relief. As you focus on the sounds around you, your mind is taken to another place and the momentary truths of muscle aches and joint pain are diminished.
Fewer Digestive Issues
Whether from the stress relief, or other natural elements, clients who undergo our salt room sound baths often express digestive relief.
Our sound bath therapy can be combined with additional therapies to customize a treatment all your own.
