Contraindications

Please let Sue know if any of the conditions listed below apply to you. There are only a few rare cases where sound therapy may not be suitable but it is always best to check if you are unsure.

In most instances it is simply a matter of adjusting sound levels or moving you further away from the instruments for your comfort. Clients with PTSD, depression, metal implants and tinnitus have been able to enjoy the benefits of my gong baths.

It is important that I am made aware of any of the issues listed below so that we can decide if a gong bath is the right thing for you at this time.

  • Tinnitus or other sound sensitive condition.
  • First trimester of pregnancy (wait until the second trimester). Third trimester – please consult your doctor to check that sound therapy is suitable at this time.
  • Epilepsy/seizures which may have been triggered by sound.
  • Metal plates in your body.
  • You require lifesaving medication due to allergies (EpiPen).
  • Recently had surgery or any medical procedure eg. large bone fractures – wait 6 weeks.
  • Severe depression, anxiety or post traumatic stress.
  • Hearing Aids – please remove before the sound bath as some frequencies may cause hearing aids to buzz or whistle!

 

If you have any other type of condition not listed above that may be a cause for concern, please contact your doctor and/or contact me to discuss before booking an event or an individual session.
