SOUND THERAPY AT LOVE WALK

12 June 2018

Last month residents at Love Walk experienced a new type of activity session as they welcomed sound therapy practitioner, San, to the home.

San brought with her a Singing Bowl – an instrument originally from China and traditionally used for making music, meditation and relaxation. When held in the palm of the hand, a wooden mallet is used to encircle the rim of the brass bowl creating a continuous note, and vibration that is felt all the way along the arm and out into the body.

The session was incredibly popular with residents, with many finding it very relaxing and therapeutic. We are looking forward to scheduling regular sound therapy sessions in future – thanks San!
