We were all born with a healthy resonant frequency that is unique to us. Over time, life events and stress can cause that resonant frequency to deviate and alter, leaving us feeling “out of sync”, emotionally drained, depressed, even physically ill. The range of frequencies emitted by Himalayan and crystal singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, and other instruments, applied in very specific ways, function to draw your normal, healthy frequency back into resonance. Back to a healthy vibration! The best part is that this requires no effort on the part of the recipient, other than holding the belief that the body knows what to do and will respond to its base frequency when it hears it! The session begins with a brief interview to discuss individual needs, desires, and expectations. Then the recipient simply lies back on a heated massage table or zero gravity lounge chair, supported by various pillows and wrapped in a blanket or whatever helps them to feel secure and comfortable. The magnificent instruments are then played around them. The set up is modified for each individual’s specific needs and desires. The physical and emotional bodies are exposed to a wide range of frequencies and harmonics. Through the Laws of Resonance, when the cells in the body “hear” their normal, healthy frequency, they are gently encouraged to entrain back into resonance with it. Sound therapy seeks to enhance what is already right and good and facilitate change where challenges exist, sometimes eliminating the use of medicines or other conventional intervention. (Disclaimer! Sound therapy should not be used as a replacement for an already agreed upon course of treatment for pre-existing illness or injury that is suspected or has been diagnosed by a physician! In such cases, sound therapy should be pursued as an adjunct, concurrent treatment modality!) Potential positive effects include deep relaxation, quieting of the mind, mental clarity, feelings of connection to “spirit” (higher self, the Universe, “God”, whatever higher order you observe), physical and/or emotional healing, spontaneous release of traumatic memories, deep inner peace, improved sleep patterns, etc. There are really no negative effects, per session, although on rare occasion the release of long and deeply held traumas, whether one was conscious of them or not, may result in a temporary feeling of discomfort. This typically passes quickly, replaced by feelings of relief and ease.
