A study published in the American journal of Health Promotion in 2014 found a greater reduction in systolic blood pressure and heart rate after a 12 minute relaxation session of singing bowls compared to silence. The sound from a bowl can reduce brain activity and therefore slow down our respiration and heart rate. The origins People have been using singing bowls for thousands of years. Their origin is unknown, but it is believed that they first originated in either Nepal or India. In Tibet, they were largely used as ceremonial instruments and initially as possibly food bowls.
It was not until the 1970s that singing bowls also became popular throughout the west when their many positive benefits were discovered. Singing bowls not only look great, but they also have such amazing healing and transformative properties.
