The Gong is one of our oldest therapeutic instruments, and has been used in yoga, sound meditation, and vibrational therapy for ages. The sounds and vibrations of the Gong are used for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and as a facilitator to break up emotional blockages. The sounds of the Gong have the power to resonate in every cell of the body simultaneously causing transformation of the entire self. Allow yourself a momentary break from thinking and doing and slip into a state of profound presence with sound resonating with breath.
