What is Sound Healing........ and why would you have it?
Science demonstrates that everything has a frequency, a rate at which it vibrates. This includes our bodies, right down to the individual organs and even cells. How often have you heard a song that makes you feel happy/in love/sad or even agitated/irritated? Perhaps you have felt peaceful and relaxed, or your heart rate has increased and you felt excited or energised. All of these effects are created by the frequencies of sound, and sound can be used intentionally to have a balancing and healing effect upon the body, mind, emotions and spirit!
It has been demonstrated many times over that sound slows our brainwaves down, allowing us to surrender into an incredibly relaxed state very quickly. What this means in reality is that sound is able to rapidly put us into that altered state of consciousness where healing occurs. Once in this deeply relaxed state, the sound frequencies are able to move through the physical and energy bodies freely and easily, affecting and influencing their vibrations as they go!
During a Sound Healing session you lie comfortably on a couch supported by pillows and blankets (sessions can also easily be done seated if you are uncomfortable lying down). The voice is a very powerful instrument, and during Sound Healing sessions I use my voice to channel sounds over and around the body with the intention of clearing, balancing and healing. I also have a range of Sound Healing instruments to support my voice - including beautiful crystal singing pyramids, crystal singing bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, numerous percussion instruments and Gongs (I am currently working with Paiste Symphonic, Pluto, Jupiter and Sound Creation Earth gongs). I work with sound very intuitively, and setting the intention that the sound comes through for your highest good - whatever that may be, I create a Sound Healing session that is very personal and individual to you. We are all very different energetically and I don't believe in adopting a 'one size fits all' approach.
Sound Healing sessions are gentle, completely safe and can benefit a wide range of issues on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. People often ask me what Sound Healing can be used for? What sort of things do people have Sound Healing for? The answer is simple.... anything and everything! As people are recognising the healing potential of sound, they are choosing to have sessions for a whole range of symptoms and 'issues' including physical pain and discomfort, long term health problems, stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia etc. I personally believe that (when the person is ready) sound has the potential to clear energy from people in an extremely fast and effective way, energy that may be blocking you from moving forwards, or stepping into your true potential - e.g. intrusive energies, Past Life blockages, energy from Current Life childhood and lingering emotional energy from unhealthy relationships/family issues etc.
Sound can also be very activating, and many people choose to have Sound Healing sessions or Personal Soundings (see Distance Sessions tab) with me, simply because they feel 'stuck' in their lives, and they aren't sure how to move forwards.
You don't need to have anything 'wrong' with you to benefit from Sound Healing, or even to have any major goal for a session - perhaps just let it work on rebalancing you - gently encouraging you into a state of optimum health and wellbeing? Maybe give yourself permission to relinquish all responsibilities, just for one hour, and allow your body and mind to truly relax, and let go....
