What is a SoundWave™️ Anyway?
Sound baths have taken hold of the popular consciousness, gaining much popularity over recent years. No longer is it the reserve of the specialist yogi, or dedicated meditator, these days many people have experienced and benefited from some form of sound meditation or gong bath. Often, Yoga studios have a gong/s, much like primary schools have pianos. However, now imagine that each primary school has a concert pianist and international opera singer among their faculty; this is what Mr and Mrs Brilliant are the world of sound medicine.
A sound bath is where you let the resonances of sacred instruments bath you in harmonious vibration. A Brilliant SoundWave™️ is much the same except with the experience of two formidable musicians from two of the most rigorous music disciplines the world offers. The tools are the same, the potency is a world apart.
Let them take you on a SoundWave™️ journey, it will serve you in ways you can not yet fathom.
