Gong meditation is a thousand-year-old sound therapy technique used to aid in stress reduction and in breaking up emotional blockages that lie within us.

Gong meditation is a powerful sonic practice that enables one to experience how it feels to step into a dimension and relaxed brain wave state.
The benefits of being exposed to the tones of the gong are varied, most notice a major improvement in the quality of sleep, improved coping skills for stress, and a sense of stillness and contentment.
