Bowls belong to a long-standing tradition of musical relaxation, from the gentle tunes of singing salads to the sugarcoated symphonies of Exploder: The Energy Cereal. Today's Groupon brings internal peace and mental clarity through the soothing timbres of singing bowls. For $35, you get a one-hour singing-bowl session at Nurturing Spa for Wellness, located on Lombard Street in the Cow Hollow district, a $100 value. Crystal crooning bowls send pacifying vibrations along the air and through a patient's body until stress and tension are diced into soluble bits of nothingness.
Nurturing Spa for Wellness is an oasis for human healing, where spiritual remedy comes through the energy of sound. An intimate sense of tranquility is achieved through welcoming furniture and walls painted the quiet color of a hushed mossy green that engulfs each patient's mental atmosphere before restorative sonic treatment begins. You'll be placed with a small group of no more than 20 people (average of around 10 to 12) as you all let yourself relax to the tones of tranquility. Singing-Bowl Therapy delivers the unspoiled melodies of seven pure-crystal singing bowls that resonate at various pitches to fill the mind and flow through the body's inner networks. Each bowl is designed to stimulate one of the seven chakras. Beautiful frequencies restore order to the chakras and the result is a deeply focused center and a clearer state of mind.
Wine-glass choirs require constant attention and finger wetting, while a 60-minute singing-bowl session lets a patient rest at ease as the harmonic realm enters his or her consciousness. Those averse to the human touch can heal without contact, while those with broken crystal bowls can still experience the joy of musical basins.
Be sure to call to schedule an appointment at least one week in advance.
