Sound Healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace, well being and better health. Sound has also been shown to be a vital part of the healing process for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and side effects especially for pain relief management.
During our waking state, the normal frequency of our brain waves is that of Beta. Sound tools entrain the brain to move into the deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies. These are the frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind and intuition. Modern medicine can now measure and thus confirm the practice of sound as a means to promote healing. Thus, sound is a type of energy medicine that creates the sacred space in which people can heal from stress disorders, pain, depression, the emotional roller coaster and more.
What happens during a Sound Healing Session?
Sessions last one hour and take place fully clothed on a mat on the floor or on a massage table. Bowls are placed and played all around your body, head and on your chakras. Clients are asked to wear comfortable clothing without buttons, zippers or jewellery.
During a Tibetan Singing Bowls Healing sessions, and depending on the intention of the session one or two bowls may also be placed and played on your body during the private session. This allows the sound vibrations to be transmitted directly to the body’s cells, circulatory system, organs and tissues as our bodies are 80% water which easily resonate with the healing sounds.
During a Binaural beats session you will use headphones to pipe sound to each ear.
How does Sound theraphy work?
Ancient instruments, including Tibetan singing bowls are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics. This sound frequencies impact the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being. Some chanting, toning, color and visualizations may be integrated into your session to help move energy.
The ancient Tibetan Healing Bowls as well as Binaural Beats, allow you to begin to relax, thus allowing your brainwave frequencies to begin to slow down to the Alpha or Theta state. This is the state where we feel deep peace, clarity of mind and intuition. It allows access to creative ideas so that they flow easily. It facilitates a spiritual connection to your higher self and to your Divine life purpose. This state also allows your body and emotions to have the opportunity to access deep healing resources.

What is a Distance Session?
For those who live outside the area, we use the telephone with headphones for effective sound healing sessions that include visualization. Call or email me for more information.
How many sessions will I need?
I recommend as a minimum, 4 weekly consecutive sessions followed by 2 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart. It takes at least 4 weeks to change a habit or form a new one. The first couple of sessions often produce energetic and physical discharge the releasing of blocks, stressors and toxins. They allow us to also develop a trusting relationship so you can better relax and receive the maximum benefits of the session. The next several sessions are dedicated to strengthening and anchoring you to the sounds creating a strong alignment focused on your particular area of need. This creates a strong mind/body connection and improves the ability to heal. After the initial sessions we evaluate your progress and needs. In order to maintain this alignment, most people benefit from a tune up visit several times a year..
Can people who feel fine benefit from a session?
Yes, very much so. People have used the Tibetan Bowls for centuries to alter their consciousness and attain deeper meditative states. Many clients also treat themselves to a session to gain clarity on an issue, re-vitalize and just feel great and even more connected to the universe.
