House of Wisdom
We love the sound of House of Wisdom, a brand new wellness space in central London focusing on self-development. Alongside talks and workshops, it holds crystal and gong sound baths plus an ‘electronic sound experience’ which uses a mixture of voice, ancient instruments, ambient soundscapes and binaural beats for a deeply relaxing acoustic experience.
Price: £22. Visit houseofwisdomstudio.com
Crystal Sound Lounge
For a bespoke session, book yourself in for a private one-to-one or group class with a sound specialist at Crystal Sound Lounge in Paddington. It is run by Laura, who set the studio up in 2017 after she had a profound experience with sound therapy during a trip to Mexico. Simply turn up, lie down and let go.
Price: From £175. Visit crystalsoundlounge.com
