A soundbath is an instrumental sequence which takes participants into a deep state of relaxation. The frequencies of the different instruments and the way they are played are designed to guide participants into an Altered State of Consciousness. The session lasts around 45mins; after everyone has found a comfortable position on their mats, the session begins with Himalayan Bowls, leading to Gong, and finishing with Crystal Bowls before a short sequence of therapeutic percussion which helps to lift participants out of the Altered State. In this state numerous positive health benefits can be achieved, including lower blood pressure, reduced anxiety, and less mental and physical tension. It can improve mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and create more emotional and mental flexibility. You don’t need to do anything to prepare – come as you are.

Heather trained with the British Academy of Sound Therapy, known as BAST and qualified as a sound therapist in 2022. She runs regular group soundbath sessions in London and follows the BAST method which is designed to take clients into a deeply relaxed, altered state of consciousness. Heather is a huge believer in the body as a vessel for healing and has a somatic approach to therapy and sound healing. As a musician, she has always found the vibrations of the instruments she plays to have a therapeutic effect and as a sound therapist loves to facilitate a space where people can relax into their bodies in a safe environment and meet themselves at a level beyond words. As well as being a freelance clarinettist, she enjoys making her own sound pieces, incorporating sound therapy instruments and field recordings, primarily of birds and water. She also facilitates guided self-reflection in some soundbath sessions; providing clients with the opportunity to go deeper and gain more insight into their health and wellbeing on the different levels of their being.
