A long-established wellness practice on the West Coast (as well as the Far East) sound baths are finally hitting the mainstream in London. The soothing sounds of chanting, tuning forks, and gongs are the antidote to London’s sensory overload, forcing the mind to quiet and focus only on the sound and your breath. For those who struggle with “traditional” meditation and mantras, sound baths are a joyous relief. Jasmine Hemsley—of the Hemsley and Hemsley cookbooks and café—founded Sebastien with her friend Toni Dicks, and the same calm that pervades all her other wellness ventures is equally present here. This winter’s residency is at Good Vibes in Holborn. Book in, rest your head on a lavender-scented pillow, settle in underneath a warm blanket and just listen.
