Singing Bowls are specifically classified as a standing bell and when played the sides and rim vibrate to produce sound; characterized by a base frequency and usually two audible harmonic overtones. This is an instrument that can benefit many by creating relaxation and focus. Singing Bowls are used worldwide for music, relaxation, meditation, and personal well-being.
Singing Bowls have been used in religious and shamanic practices for well over 1500 years and have been associated with Nepal & Tibetan Buddhism since the 8th century AD. A singing bowl is played by resting the bowl on the flat of the hand and rotating the stick around the outside rim of the bowl. As Buddhism has become popular so too has the use of singing bowls. In recent years singing bowls have been used in holistic healing, chakra healing, sound therapy, reiki, feng shui and many other areas related to purifying negative impulses and relieving stress.
