The gong is one of the oldest instruments of healing and has been used for thousands of years in meditation, ceremony and rituals and more recently in recordings done in recording studios. Today they are used in yoga and meditation classes, sound therapy practice, group gong bath meditations and in palliative and cancer treatment centers to promote health and well-being. We can record your gong in our recording studio for your mediation CD.
Recording Studio: the Power of Gongs
According to Grand Gongmaster Don Conreaux: “The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation. Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells and bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong. You feel an influx of energy coming from it in your body as well as hear it.” This can be captured in a recording studio.
“The gong is more accurately a force of energy, like a divine engine, affecting the body’s meridians. By and large, after it’s over, you just feel great,” he says. “You feel like you’ve been healed by the spirit of nature.”. A recording studio can capture the gong and reproduce the effect.
The sounds from the gongs travel from the outer ear throughout the body via the vagus nerve — impacting brain waves, respiratory rate and heart rate. Sound and vibration help facilitate a deep sense of peace, release tension and blocked energy, and balance the energy centers in the body. They are working at a cellular level to rebalance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Gongs recording in a recording studio can have the same effect when listened back through good speakers.
“We call it the Music of Wholeness,” Don explains. “Whereas a lot of modalities read your symptoms and approach the body according to your illness, holistic sound healing works differently from that. What we do is approach the body as if it were already whole and complete, then we fill that body with vibrations that emphasize wholeness and resonance, and whatever the problem, the sound will go to that place that needs it and the body will pull it in and the cells will begin to regain their highest potential of resonance.”
