Crystal Singing Bowls are made of 99.9% Pure Quartz Crystal and tuned to the notes of the seven chakras. When intoned, they produce a beautiful and pervading wave of healing sound and vibration which may create a physical, mental, and/or spiritual shift in the receiver. One does not need to be consciously aware of chakra balancing or crystal healing as it happens naturally on its own without effort.

Sound vibration has been used for Centuries to invoke our inherent ability for restoration and transformation on all levels. The subtle vibration of sound moves throughout the body and provides an internal massage while nurturing insight, intuition, and the flow of pure energy within and around the physical body to promote health and emotional well-being.

Sound Therapy wakes up our ability to listen and hear; as hearing occurs beyond the ears through also feeling the sound waves.
For most individuals the greatest challenge for meditation is quieting the mind; however the sound of a crystal bowl seems to fill the mind and reduce thoughts by providing an effortless point of focus.
