A standing bell or resting bell is an inverted bell, supported from below with the rim uppermost. Such bells are normally bowl-shaped, and exist in a wide range of sizes, from a few centimetres to a metre in diameter. They are often played by striking, but some—known as singing bowls—may also be played by rotating a mallet around the outside rim to produce a sustained musical note.

Why do singing bowls sing?
Singing Bowls for Healing. Singing bowls have obvious healing effects. The physical vibration of the sound waves, when a bowl is placed directly on the body, massages the cells and organs in a delicate way, and releases energy blockages. Their sounds influence the brain waves in a positive and balancing way.
