HOLLY Willoughby was left feeling “numb” after she and This Morning co-host tried out a ‘gong bath’ live on air.

The pair were taking part in a new wellness trend that involves sound therapy and a giant gong being banged over your head to send vibrations through your body.

The therapy, which originates from ancient Greece, is send to alleviate stress, boost creativity and improve creativity.

The segment began with Holly, 38, and Phil, 57, chatting to sound and meditation therapist Leo Cosendai, who claims the treatment helped him as it  “eradicated anxiety and panic attacks”.

Holly and Phil then lay on the floor, the studio lights were dimmed and the treatment – which costs around £20 a session- began.

“I will have a sleep now,” Phillip joked, as Leo told him: “No snoring!”

First Leo banged the larger of two gongs hanging from a wooden structure, before picking up a smaller gong and banging it over Phil’s head.

“Oooh, I feel that!” exclaimed Holly.

“Oh wow!” added Phil, looking slightly shocked.

He then moved the gong over Holly’s head.

“It almost makes your head feel numb, do you know what I mean?” Holly asked.

“A lot of people feel like they’ve merged with the floor,” Leo answered.

Clearly a bit concerned about the reaction his co-host was having, Phil then asked: “Do people’s heads normally go numb?”

“The head, no,” said Leo, which prompted laughter from Holly as she realised that she wasn’t experiencing the usual effect.

Phil then started giggling himself as Holly added: “I can almost feel it go from ear to ear.”

Leo then reassured her that the treatment was meant to “create this sensation that there are two different beats entering your ear.”


Unfortunately the session had to come to an end as the hosts had to wrap up the show.

“I would like to do this all day but sadly we have got to close the show now,” Phil said, as both he and Holly told Leo the gong bath was “lovely.”

Still appearing slightly dopey, they finished their closing link before deciding to lie back down again.
