The things that define New York as special—its 24 hour schedule, feverish energy, and concrete landscape—are the same things that make this place challenging. NYC is a wellness-focused city because it needs to be, and the trend currently resonating (literally) with New Yorkers is sound baths.
During a sound bath resonant, overtone-emitting instruments—like crystal singing bowls and tuning forks—are played over the resting bodies of those in attendance. This kind of auditory immersion is an entryway to the kind of deep meditative states most New Yorkers can only dream of, and regulars say the effect is accumulative, so sign up for a couple of these sonic soundscapes and soak up the zen vibes.
This neighborhood healing center in Greenpoint, North Brooklyn, has the kind of cosy ambiance that’s necessary for a sound bath. Music psychotherapist Katie Down hosts sell-out sessions on the second and last Sunday of every month—the perfect way to wind down from the week and meet Monday head on.
