The procedure is performed on the floor on a comfortable mat, in a warm and well ventilated area. If possible, in the twilight or in soft light. While using the technique of “sound bath” and meditative practices, good soundproofing of the room from outside noise is recommended. In the case of technique “Contact sound” there is no need to have perfect sound insulation.
While the procedure patient is wearing cotton loose clothes, or he is naked and covered with a cotton sheet. Patients are advised to abstain (for one day before the procedure and for one day after it) on products of animal origin, smoking and alcohol. After the procedure of the Tibetan singing bowls massage it is extremely useful to spend the rest of the day in a relaxed atmosphere, eliminating the possibility of stress.
In the course of the procedure and the preparation for it is recommended to use the procedure of “Fumigation” (LUNG DOUG / RLUNG DUG) from the section “External procedures” of traditional Tibetan medicine. In addition, it is necessary to have a burning candle. Close to the patient it is advised to put the things symbolizing or representing the five elements.
At the beginning the person receiving a procedure and the Master of the Sound sit on the floor facing in the direction to that side of the light, which is conformable for the purpose of the procedure. If the aim is to harmonize, then choose the direction to the east. The patient is encouraged to imagine himself in the rainbow transparent sphere. The therapist is configured to the procedure and removes the first sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl according to the technology. Next, the therapist moves the singing bowl around the patient’s body, periodically removing the sound.
After that the therapist puts Tibetan singing bowl upside down on the patient’s head and removes the sound according to the method of the massage. At the end of this stage the patient is asked to lie down on his stomach in a comfortable position, and the ankle should be enclosed under the roller. The body of the patient is hiding with a light natural tissue, the head can be covered with a towel. Next, the therapist removes the vibration from Tibetan singing bowl and sets it on the body of a patient according to the scheme which is necessary in a particular case. He performs this manipulation on the back surface of the patient’s body, and then removes the bowl from the body and offers the patient to turn back.
After the patient is turned back on, the therapist covers his eyes with light tissue, and performs light traction (stretching) of the lower and upper extremities. And then removes the vibration of Tibetan singing bowl and sets the bowl on the body of the patient. Then he moves the bowl on the patient’s body, removing the bowl’s sound.

About Tibetan singing bowls
Tibetan singing bowls – it is primarily a vibration, which is the sound in it’s turn. Sound is energy. The energy transforms form into matter, that is because “in the beginning was the word.” Myths about the creation of the world in all religions in one or another form describe the emergence of Sound (vibration) as a fundamental principle of all things.
Sound (vibration) exists everywhere and in everything: singing of birds, the rustle of the snow, the crackling logs, rattling of jackhammer. Even if we close our ears, we will hear the sound of the heart. Sound is a vibration. A vibration is characterized by a certain length of the wave.
Sound can not only be heard, but also can be seen. For example, a flat plate, on which something loose and light is spilled, a plate with sand. The dynamic of musical center is put under it. And you can see the intricate patterns that will emerge from the sand. Sound or word can kill, but also it may have creative power. For example, mantrotherapy in Tibetan medicine. The sound should be harmonious or it will be cacophony. We listen not only by ears, but by body – by every cell.
Rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre, tone, vibration, power and volume – all these are characteristics of the sound.
Myths and Realities of the Tibetan singing bowls
Legends about the appearance of Tibetan singing bowls
The Chinese believed that spirits lived in the products of bronze, for example, swords and vessels. (A. Heuser, Singing Bowls. Exercises for a personal harmony M., “Dilya”, 2005 p.46). Until now, there is no information about the exact purpose of such products. Maybe they were used as a vessel for food, sacrificial vessel, ritual or music.
Description of the symbolic construction of the orchestra in a Tibetan temple is represented in the book Rudy Jansen. (Singing Bowls. Practical guidance on the use / Tr. from English. – SPb.: Publisher “Dilya”, 2009, p. 18–19).
Legend of meteorites. According to this legend, Tibetan singing bowls existed and were used in the practice of the monks in Tibet, but their properties were missing something. And then the monks appealed to the supreme beings and gods to help them. In response to their request meteor rain was sent down to the Earth, which allowed to include meteoric iron in the standard alloy, from which the bowls were made. Since then, the bowls began to possess unique properties.
The legend about the wandering blacksmiths. The legend says that in Tibet lived blacksmiths who were creating Tibetan singing bowls directly on the request of one who asked them to make it. They could forge a bowl for every need – from economic to spiritual. These blacksmiths lived near the deposits, where all necessary for the alloy of a certain quality was. And they hammered the bowls directly on the stones of Tibet. And when the ore or the alloy were ending in this place, they went on to look for new deposits. They were not just the blacksmiths, but blacksmiths who were performing specific spiritual practices. In those days it was impossible to find a new mine ore required for the production of Tibetan singing bowls without such practices, and without communication with higher powers.
Tibetan singing bowls in the modern world
I can say with confidence that today Tibetan singing bowls are not only a musical instrument but a completely real thins that can affect on a human or an animal, and they have some scientifically determinable physical and mechanical properties.
Research, conducted by my students in physically oriented therapy and bioenergy, confirmed this. As an example, the personal experience in using Tibetan singing bowls in combination with classical therapeutic massage, I noted a huge reduction of the acute period of ischialgia and lumbodynia and increasing the duration of remission periods in my patients.
Nowadays, this clinical research has not been conducted because of the high price of it.
