A What Bath?! The Day I Met the Gongs

When local author, Tracey Gemmell came to her first ever gong bath she was sceptical to say the least. That is, until she met the Sound-Well gongs.. after which she was inspired to write about her experience.

Enjoy reading 'A What Bath? The Day I met the Gongs.'


The magic of the flute in the story, the deep resonation of the gongs, the bleating of sheep and lambs, the varied song of the birds, the warmth of human voices and in contrast ......the sound of quietness and solitude. Sheer pleasure.

Wonderful. The flow was ideal. I felt held and carried by you Alex and the group. It was gentle and nurturing. A bringing together and meeting of wonderful people. An affirmation of the power and good of storytelling and meditation and good food and reflection. I have so many thoughts and words without wanting or being able to articulate them! It was deep inner work, difficult to articulate.

Given permission to be open - to nurture yourself in a very safe place. It is a gift to yourself - a reminder to care for yourself.

It was a gift to myself.

Beautiful and transformational. Relaxing and stories. Incredible gong bath - went very deep and shifted something. Its been a very stressful time in my life without much peace, finally regained a sense of grounding - didn't think it was possible.

Deeply relaxing, space to be alone to come back to my centre, heart centred connection to nature. A coming back to me. Stillness, flow, silence, gentleness, authenticity, effortless, - thank you from my heart to yours. Jess
