A sound bath is an experience in which instruments are played in a manner to relax the body, calm the mind, and ignite your inner awareness.
At The Soundbath Center all of our sound bath events are played at a safe volume. We periodically test our volume to ensure it is within the safe limits of sound exposure.
We have had many pregnant women attend our events over the past 14 years. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health advises that pregnant women avoid routine exposure to noise louder than 115 decibels, and our sound baths are below this level and are within a safe volume range (we measure!). However, every pregnancy is different and we have not found much scientific research regarding sound and pregnancy. We do not place any bowls or other instruments directly on people during our events. We recommend pregnant women consult their physician prior to attending a sound bath event with us. Once physicians clearance is obtained, pregnant women are welcome at our sound bath events. Bring an additional pillow or two so you can lay comfortable on your side (laying on the back is not safe after the first trimester).
We provide one mat, one blanket, and an eye pillow for each attendee. You are welcome to bring additional items for extra comfort. We also provide water so you don’t have to bring anything but yourself.
In order to provide the best experience we can, all events start on time and late arrivals are not allowed. The doors open 15 minutes before every event so you have time to arrive and get settled in. Please leave plenty of time to get to the event on time, and please DO NOT KNOCK on the door if you are late and it is locked.
First time sound bathers are welcome at any of our events. GongPlay® is our signature sound bath event. In this event we use a combination of gongs and crystal singing bowls. If you are looking for an enhanced experience try one of our premium sound bath events which combine other modalities, personalized attention, and other extras that add to the experience.
We suggest wearing comfortable clothes, and dressing in layers in case you get hot or cold.
We require advanced registration for all of our events. We have a maximum capacity of only 10 participants and we often sell out.

We do not burn incense, sage, or use any scents during the event. However, we do use essential oils, sage, and palo santo in between events so there may be lingering scents.
