House of Ascend specialises in Gong Therapy, also known as Music Therapy or Sound Therapy where we facilitate and augment our practices using therapeutic musical instruments mainly with Gongs alongside Crystal Singing Bowls and Monochord. This bespoke offering makes yoga and meditation easy, enjoyable, deeply relaxing and revitalising. It is an everyday retreat that strengthens your mind, boosts your mood, relieves stress and helps you find equilibrium.
Gong Therapy offers a psycho-acoustic gateway to altered states of awareness and consciousness (alpha to theta). It’s an amazing healing tool because the frequencies surpass the intellectual part of the brain and travel to the core of the nervous system activating the parasympathetic nervous system and prompting the body to heal and detoxify.
Gong Therapy may also bring about:
Altered States of Consciousness
Gong Therapy is not only an auditory experience you listen to relax the mind, but a parasympathetic somatic experience that relates directly to the body’s healing.
We offer two types of Gong Therapy sessions weekly;
Gong Yin is a 90-minute restorative practice where Yin Yoga is brought to a new level with Gong Therapy, Aromatherapy and Pranayama. This session is accessible to all, but regardless of your level of experience this practice invites you to go deeper and find new space in your Mind, Body and Breath in held postures.
Gong Meditation is a 90-minute practice where you are guided through yogic breathwork and visualisations augmented with Aromatherapy, Gong Therapy, and Yoga Nidra. The combination of these elements has a calming effect on your Mind and Body allowing you to relax and rejuvenate the layers of your Being.
