~ SOUND THERAPY ~
Healing sounds help balance our left and right brain hemispheres, manifest positive states of consciousness linking to mental, emotional and physical balance, harmony and well-being. Sound can bring about transformation on every level of our being – physical, emotional, mental, energetic
Sounds can alter the brain frequencies to the different brainwaves associated with the deep states of relaxation (e.g. alpha-theta and delta) that change mental states of consciousness resulting in relaxation, peace, calmness
and healing. Our body absorbs sounds - we are approx. 80% water and sound travels very quickly through water, right into cellular level affecting our cells health and function, and works deeply and quickly, yet gently.
In Craniosacral Therapy we also work with the meridians and accupressure points and this got me interested in using tuning forks on these points. I noticed the body responded very well to them and to other sounds and this led me to do a diploma in Sound Therapy & Healing using lots of different instruments: Tibetan bowls, gongs, crystal bowls, tuning forks, drums & percussion, vocal toning, monochord, shruti, rattles & shakers, chimes, rainsticks and Tibetan bells.
A Sound treatment lasts an hour and can be given to an individual, or to a group of people (this is usually called a Sound Bath, Sound Meditation or a Sound Journey). I provide thick soft mats, just bring a blanket and cushion so you're nice and comfy. If you have a group coming to the island and would like a Sound Bath for them, please contact me.
A combination of Sound and Craniosacral therapy is a beautiful way to work with the body, most clients find it very relaxing, powerful and sleep very well afterwards.
