Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, MD, a cancer specialist of Cornell Medical Center, NY, has found using the bowls, especially with simple chant and meditative practices, assist his clients to come into marked improvement and recovery rates over those using just standard allopathic treatment.
Many modern scientists and doctors are translating this work into medical practice. Mitchell Gaynor, uses crystal bowls and Tibetan bowls in his practice with cancer patients. He chronicles a thorough study of sound healing and a holistic approach to mind-body healing.
Many other practitioners are offering both studies and anecdotal testimony in their use. An extraordinary tool for simply bathing the client in rich sounds, which generate deep feeling states of wellness and relaxation.
This can lead the body into a place of homeostasis, which assists the body in self-generative healing.
From this place of relaxation or restoration, one can, also, easily guide a recipient into meditative states to explore deeper aspects of emotional release and resolution, or journeying into the inner dimensional awareness of one’s greater being, and the greater Cosmos.
The bowls can easily be played, by any individual, for one’s own feeling states of attunement, relaxation, or wellness, as well as a ‘drone’ for voice in chant, mantra, song, or ‘toning.’
The bowls are easily struck and ‘sung’ by rubbing the outside of the bowl with rubber or suede mallets which accompany the bowls.
The rare, pure tone of the bowl is extraordinary, and allows for rapid ‘attunement’ to a clear state of awareness, or consciousness.
Such states allows for deepening meditative states, or touching into unresolved emotions awating clarity or release.
Just breathing the feeling states that arise, from simple use of the bowl, one can easily access clarity, release, deep feeling states of spaciousness or coherence, which bring essential wellness.
With a skilled practitioner, again, one can, also, enter heightened states of awareness, to peer into the greater dimensional aspects of cosmos, or the Greater Self, or journey into deeper mechanisms of release and healing of specific memory or trauma.
Hearing the haunting sound of the crystal bowls seems to awaken an ancient remembering, touching the essence of the soul.
