Sound bath therapy can prove to be very helpful in fighting stress by rooting out. When you enter a sound bath, no specific rules are followed. In a regular session, the person will comfortably sit with his eyes closed or lie down. This is followed by a focus on the sounds and frequencies emanating in the room. Sometimes, instruments such as forks, watches, crystal bowls and brass utensils are used to present the soothing sounds in the room. Some experts prefer to use their voice as a guided meditation medium.
