Why Sound Healing?

Experience a massage from the inside out, relaxing the body energetically and physically and freeing your body’s ability to heal. Blockages and imbalances in the human body alter the vibration of cells, organs, systems, or energies resulting in disease (dis-ease).  Many external factors, including electromagnetic frequencies from television sets, cell phones, and microwaves affect the vibration of our physical and energetic bodies.     

Bypassing language entirely, rhythmic and vibrational music allows us to access spirit and heart directly, quieting the over-active left brain, re-aligning these unbalanced vibrations and creating more harmony.  We begin with sound in our mother’s womb; we are held together by sound as we travel through our lives. In virtually every culture, human beings have used toning, chanting, drumming and singing to heal their bodies and spirits.

These sessions are recommended for people who have sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, constipation, ulcers, high blood pressure, asthma, chronic pain, creative blocks and more.

What to expect?
In these sessions, we will talk briefly so that an intention for healing can be established. We will work to tune your body and create more spaciousness within which the elements (earth, air, fire, water and space) can combine for your benefit. We will invite your body’s elements to come into balance.  I ask for what needs to be heard here and now, rather than performing prepared or rehearsed pieces.  I work with silence and sound as sound emerges out of stillness. The didgeridoo (I use yucca, seaweed and bamboo didges), tuning forks, crystal bowls and voice gently invite stuck energy to move or vibrate at a higher frequency and to ease over-stimulated energy into stillness. 

Rituals and Ceremonies

Didgeridoo can be used to make ceremonies and rituals special. Think of it for birthdays, memorial services, graduations, weddings and other gatherings.
