Not just a concert…
Jose Antonio Manchado and Irene Sportel are looking forward to perform this beautiful concert again! From the heart, they will create music for you to enjoy and to help you heal.
During this evening you relax, cover yourself with a blanket, let go of your day and let the sounds take you on a healing journey.
It’s a revitalizing experience where you can perceive and feel the benefits of the vibrations of these beautiful ancient instruments. Just close your eyes and let yourself be transported by the sound.
Participants will be lying on mats whilst enjoying the harmonized vibrations of the bowls, gongs, mantras, hang drums, piano, guitar and Tibetan bells.
Some benefits of a sound massage with singing bowls are :
- Stimulation and revival of the immune system
- Efficiency in healing stress and depression
- Helping relaxation
- Relief from insomnia
- Enhancing concentration
- Reviving the cells and organs of the body
- Balancing the brain hemispheres
- Relief of muscular pain and head-aches
This singing bowl therapy concert is a unique experience in which we discover our own inner sound allowing us to balance and harmonise our body, mind and spirit.
