Step aside, rubber duckies and scented candles! There’s a new type of bath making waves in Columbus, Ohio, and it doesn’t require a drop of water.

Welcome to the world of sound baths. Be sure to keep your clothes on because instead of soaking in bubbles, you’re immersed in waves of soothing sound frequencies that promise to leave you feeling more relaxed than ever.

Much like a real bath rejuvenates the body, sound baths aim to cleanse the mind and spirit through the power of sound. Picture this: you’re not dunking into a tub filled with lavender-scented bubbles (though that certainly is meditative), but rather, you’re surrounded by expertly curated sounds that wash over you, creating a sonic sanctuary.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to trade your rubber ducky for a singing bowl, join us as we dive into the harmonic haven of sound baths right here in Columbus.

Feel the frequencies with The Sound Room at Polaris

 8720 Orion Pl Suite 336, Columbus, OH 43240

Grounded in the principles of quantum physics and the profound understanding that our bodies are pure energy (except for me, I’m at least 20% ice cream), this Columbus gem invites you to rediscover your natural frequencies. Lounge comfortably as practitioners lead you through a meditation, activating your parasympathetic nervous system for deep healing. This isn’t like going to a Crew game – it’s not a spectator sport. Instead, you must immerse yourself in the experience. Many people find that time will slip away as your body undergoes a rejuvenating reset, and they leave feeling refreshed, revitalized, and hooked on the state of pure consciousness The Sound Room offers.

Make it a combo! Combine sound bathing and salt room halotherapy at Tranquility Salt Cave

30 Dillmont Dr, Columbus, OH 43235

Sound baths and halotherapy may very well be a better team than Batman and Robin. Just think about it – not only are you calibrating your chakras and becoming one with the vibrations that surround you, you’re concurrently flushing out physical toxins and allergens from your body. It’s like getting a double scoop of relaxation and rejuvenation in one go. Tranquility Salt Cave offers these sessions on a periodic basis, so be sure to check their calendar for upcoming dates and times!
