Ward Thomas and the sound therapy

Feb 04, 2019, 04:54 PM

Chart-topping country-pop singers Ward Thomas discover the rejuvenating sound of silence

This week Suzanne Duckett is joined by the fabulous duo Ward Thomas – modern country-pop band and twin sisters – to try a deeply healing and immersive bath that you can enjoy fully clothed! Welcome to the gong bathing! A gong bath is an ancient Eastern method of sound healing, using crystal bowls that when played, emit healing vibrations that are said to calm an overstimulated nervous system, help remove deep-held tensions and aid a blissful nights sleep. Suzanne is hoping this calming session strikes a chord with these wired, restless minded millennials and helps them open up about their other wellness secrets. 
 
Leave the hustle and bustle, the noise and screens behind, and join wellness journalist Suzanne Duckett on a journey into relaxation and the wonderful, watery world of wellbeing. To celebrate the release of her new book Bathe, she is inviting some special guests to join her in some truly immersive experiences: discovering the invigorating power of bath and birch, the emotional harmony of sound and steam, and the soothing energy of mud and ice. 
  
 And you won’t be left behind – in this podcast, listeners get up close and personal with the experience: the benefits, secrets and sounds of each treatment.

Start the year with some new experiences: close your eyes and plunge into a world of wellness. Bathing is a primal ritual, but it’s never been more relevant. The conversation starts here.

The podcast series will be 6 episodes long launching Jan 14th and guests include Liz Earle, Melissa Hemsley, Ward Thomas and three more surprise guests.
 
Bathe: The Podcast was created and produced in-house by Bonnier Books UK to celebrate the publication of Suzanne Duckett’s new book Bathe
