Lay back and allow the sounds of healing to soothe away your worries and stress. Enjoy a state of divine relaxation and bliss.
Sound healing works a treat during times of stress or worry and
induces a state of deep relaxation and calm.
People commonly visit me for sound healing for issues
An inability to relax or ‘switch off’ (particularly over
Emotional states (particularly overwhelm, frustration,
Feelings of being overly emotional
Feeling ‘out of sorts’, ‘blah’ or ‘flat’
Dulled mental clarity (‘foggy brain’)
Regular 'wellness tune ups' (e.g. at 1, 3 or 6 monthly
What is sound healing?
Sound is all around us in the form of the spoken word,
music, city and nature soundscapes. It has the power to inspire, uplift and
energise. When you listen to your favourite song it may fill you with joy or
activate you to dance. Being in the sounds of nature can bring about feelings
of peace and calm.
Sound is known to have a beneficial effect on health and
there is a long history of the use of sound for healing. Chanting is the most
ancient spiritual practice and drumming has long been used in ceremony and healing
ritual. More recently, classical music has been shown the reduce stress and
improve mental clarity.
I use tuning forks and singing bowls in these sessions. A
tuning fork is a pronged fork with two metal prongs and a handle, often used to
tune instruments. In the context of a healing session, tuning forks are used to
tune you! Singing bowls are bell shaped bowls (usually metal or crystal) that
are struck with a soft mallet or played around the rim. They’re traditionally
used by Tibetan monks to enhance the meditative state.
In these sessions, sound is applied in a systematic manner
along the body energy channels (‘meridians’ in Traditional Chinese Medicine)
and centres (‘chakras’ in yogic philosophy). The sounds produce a vibration, or
frequency, which clears stagnation in the subtle energy body. The cells of our
physical body also respond by changing (or ‘matching’) to the sound frequency which
is more harmonious to health.
My sound healing sessions can help soothe and heal, activate and release.
What happens in a sound healing session?
All sound healing sessions are 60 minutes.
Your session involves:
Discussion of your reason for visiting
Optional: setting an intention for the session (e.g. I am full of energy, I am calm, I release all anger)
Lying face up on a massage table with eyes closed
Remaining fully clothed with shoes removed
Holding of points on your body at the start of the session
Tuning forks and singing bowls are struck and played around your body
It takes most people less than ten minutes to enter a state of deep relaxation. You may drop off during the session. If you do that’s completely fine. You’ll still get the benefits and you obviously need a rest!
After the session
Most people leave these sessions feeling incredibly relaxed, calm
Afterwards, drink plenty of water and try to avoid anything
physically strenuous or emotionally challenging. I recommend a calm state and
environment so you can integrate the session. You may wish to go on a gentle
walk, spend some time in quiet reflection or journal your thoughts.
In the days following a session, many people say they
retained a relaxed feeling and have insights into issues they came for.
How many sessions are needed?
Most people feel the benefit of sound healing after one session. I don’t recommend a minimum number of sessions and you can enjoy sound healing as often as you like. Booking in a regular sound healing session (e.g. monthly, every three months) is a lovely way to re-balance and commit to your self-care. Maintaining a journal in between sessions is a useful way to track your healing and growth.
