Pure sound waves produced by high-quality singing bowls are able to sync and establish coherence with our brain waves. This supports and allows the listener and the player to relax into a lower state of brain wave such as Alpha and Theta State that promotes self-healing.

How to choose a singing bowl that is right for me?


The Earth is a living breathing planet, and we believe that consciousness is the ground of all being. The Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls are made from the living quartz of the Earth and thus have consciousness to communicate with us via the quantum field.

It is most common we observed for people to determine their first bowl by attraction and priority of the element of the bowl, be it precious metals, gemstones or minerals than secondly by note and size.

Sound Healing Frequencies.

What is a sound frequency?


Sound frequency is the rate of oscillation or vibration measured in cycles per second. The human body is crystalline in structure and we all vibrate at our own unique frequency. Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, our cells are filled with fluid so sound frequency is an amazing tool for healing at a cellular level.




Do healing frequencies work?


Frequencies are fundamental to the way we live our lives, and the use of sound can play a big role into this. We are energy at our core. We have energetic channels and energetic focus points in our bodies. There are certain tunings such as 432Hz, or Solfeggio Tunings suggesting they have healing properties to the body. We believe that consciousness is the primary influence for healing. Each individual person is unique to your resonance frequency; a sound or tone that to the listener feels nurturing, healing, relaxing or even uplifting is often stimulating the brain and nervous system positively.




What are binaural beats? What are they used for?


A binaural beat is a tone or frequency perceived by the brain when two different tones close in pitch are perceived at the same time by a person. The tones interfere with one another, resulting in the creation of a third tone which is the difference between their pitches. The pitch difference is very small (no more than 30 Hz for Beta-Delta Brain Wave states), but once recognized by the brain it becomes a low-frequency pulse and both hemispheres start working in synergy, and the whole brain is immersed in a synchronization process.

Ancient shamans and healers also were working on the binaural beats, with repetitive drumming and chanting in order to revitalise the connection between the two brain halves and between the human brain, the body and the unconscious.

Slowing the brain’s waves by binaural beats pushes the brain to recognise itself on a higher level when both hemispheres communicate with each other. The more balanced the brain is, the more capable it is to recognise the messages of intuition.

How do I clean my singing bowl?
