It's important to learn that we “hear” not only with our ears but with our whole body.
Everything has a frequency, our thoughts, parts of our body, emotions, pain or disease. It’s important to realize therefore that sound is actually a form of nutrition. When people take in beneficial frequencies, like in sound therapy, it’s like getting a whole body and mind tune up.
It takes people into very deep brain wave states, often even deeper than sleep. It’s common for people to feel more deeply rested than they ever have and completely rejuvenated and revitalized.
It’s also important to learn that we “hear” not only with our ears but with our whole body. Sound waves during a Sound therapy session travel deep into the body, even bone deep. In fact we hear with our entire body.
Sound therapy is extremely unique in that it balances both hemispheres of the mind and leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well-being, calm and joy.

Sound Therapy Testimonials
Frequently asked questions
Some people call it sound meditation and although it can be meditative it can also be much more than that. Others call it sound healing, this can sometimes be limiting as everyone plays an active role in their own development and growth and so it can be beneficial to not think of it as coming to be healed by something or someone. Even choosing to attend a sound therapy session means the person is a part of the joint process of healing. It can also be called a sound bath, which describes how the sound washes over you, more accurately the sound flows right into you and can have a cleansing effect both on a physical and emotional level. Or a sound journey is another name to describe the beautiful process of receiving sound therapy session.
Many things are possible in a session. People can feel a lot of tingling in their body as the sound vibrations travel through. Feeling deeply relaxed or meditative is also common. Sometimes people have emotions arise and since upwards of 90% to 95% of diseases are psychosomatic, meaning from suppressed emotions, having emotions released is extremely beneficial an didn't sound therapy it's in a safe and gentle way that these emotions can be released with the sound and filled with high vibration frequencies. Often people feel inspired, focused and creative from the sound and may even receive clarity as to what direction to go in their life. It's also common for people to feel pain or ailments melt out of their body. So much can happen in a sound therapy session as the sound is a very powerful modality.
Sound is a universal language and it's very uniting. It's not only great self-care for your team but also an incredible team building opportunity. It's amazing to know that people that sing together in a choir actually experience their heartbeats syncing up with each other. Other than self-care and team building, sound therapy in the corporate setting and increased productivity, creativity, positivity, overall morale and cooperation amongst team members.
In a sound therapy session you are not listening to Music in the sense that we are used to. The sound in the session is purposefully unstructured, not incorporating rhythm and arrangements like music does. You are more so listening to the sounds rather than music. This has the ability to help you drop into deeper more relaxed brainwave states when the brain is not attached to a specific melody or rhythm.
Absolutely, everyone is welcome and benefits from sound therapy session even babies in the womb.
Although some children may find it hard to stay quiet or still for the length of a session in a group so as to not be disruptive to others in which case an individual session maybe more suited.
Been completely immersed in and studying music and playing percussion my whole life with so much joy and passion, I have created an intuitive and tuned in approach to sharing sound therapy with people over vast experience of playing for people of all ages and all types of conditions. Facilitating Sound Therapy comes as a combined experience of my Music background, Energetic Trainings, Coaching, Body work experience and emotionally supporting people for over a decade.
Absolutely, everyone is always encouraged to be as comfortable as possible and mindful of their bodies needs. A great option is the use of a zero gravity chair to be able to sit in or recline as you wish. You are also invited to use as many props as you would like to be comfortable and can also change your position within a session.
Singing Bowl Massage
Tibetan Singing Bowls are placed on different parts of your body while being played in order to create varying sounds and vibrations so that your vital energy can flow freely and a state of resonance and entrainment is created. The sound of Tibetan singing bowls harmonize and allow deep relaxation of both sides of the brain. The Singing Bowls stimulate stress relief on all levels and helps the elimination of toxins from the body. Sound Therapy in general is an ancient practice, having been used for a very long time.
The special thing about Tibetan bowls is that they produce a rich variety of harmonics and vibrations that have the profound ability to benefit you on a physical level by relaxing muscles, on an energetic level by increasing our vital energy and on mental level by inducing a meditative state and opening emotional blocks.
