Gongs are one of man's oldest therapeutic instruments and are believed to have a profound effect on the nervous system.  They are reported to bring about relaxed and meditative states, aid in pain control, and decrease negative thought patterns, addictive behaviors, and depression.  Many people use gong therapy every day to 'raise their vibration', which improves the quality of their thoughts and actions, and helps restore a state of inner balance.
