Singing bowls, also called healing bowls, can be traced back to Asia as early as 2000 BC. They are made of an alloy of seven different metals, connected to the the seven astrological plants, which creates a range of different sounds and overtones. Those seven metals are gold as Sun, silver as Moon, mercury as Mercury, copper as Venus, iron as Mars, tin as Jupiter, and lead as Saturn. Each bowl is unique so the format, depth, color, girth, and composition of each is variable.
Science has confirmed that music, as an organized form of sound, can directly affect mood, brain waves, the nervous system, and the body's chemistry. It's also said to aid in digestion, induce sleep, and treat mental disturbances.
The vibrations of singing bowls stimulate the body to recreate its own harmonic frequency and help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain which helps with deep relaxation. Singing bowls of all sizes are said to clean the atmosphere around us of negative energy and emotional blockages.
Many people feel that they are touched or cleansed in their soul when they listen to the sound of singing bowls. As some people describe it—"time stands still"—a feeling of peace, relief in aching body parts, or contact with a realm beyond daily life.
It is said that renowned masters of sound among Tibetan Lamas have used singing bowls in secret rituals. They have traveled out of the body through the power of sound. Tibetan bowls are of Nepalese origin and are used by Newari people during their ritual fire ceremony. There is a link between bowls and the Ayurvedic approach of music therapy and Ayurvedic medical care.
There are usually five basic techniques for playing the bowls: beating, encircling, adding of water, adding of toneless vowels, spinning.
