The gong is an ancient and sacred instrument used for healing, restoration and transformation throughout the world.  It produces a strong, almost tangible sound wave, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell.  

It is recommended to wear layers of loose, non-restrictive clothing, and to bring a mat to lie on, pillow, blanket, chair, water or anything else you may need to comfortably relax into the experience.
