Sound Healing is...
the process in which a practitioner uses aspects of music to improve the health of their patient, working on a vibrational level within the body, releasing areas that are blocked or restricted. I often use Sound Healing within the wider context of a CranioSacral session, but am also happy to offer pure Sound Healing sessions.
Incorporating Sound Therapy into my healing repertoire came about through my own healing journey. Finding that some of the deepest and most effective healing sessions I have received have involved sound, either singing, or using a gong. Sound and music affects our beings on a vibrational level. The sound from my Earth Gong is deep, rhythmic and multi-layered, creating vibrations that enable the deep release of restrictions, within the body. Some clients report altered states of consciousness, seeing colours or visions.
A history of Sound Healing...
Healing with Sound dates back as far as ancient Greece… Apollo was the god of both music and medicine. Aesculapius was believed to cure mental disorders with songs. The philosophers Plato and Aristotle both claimed that music affected the soul and the emotions. Hippocrates played music for his patients, too.
In Ancient Egypt, Sound Therapy was a staple in temples.
In biblical times, instruments were used to vanquish evil spirits from human souls.
Native American culture used both song and dance to heal the sick.
Instances of Sound Healing Therapy are limitless.
Fast forward a few centuries, to the 1940s, when the United States Military incorporated music into their programmes for the recuperation of army personnel during World War II. This is often described as the official dawn of music therapy.
Today it is used in many aspects of medicine and spiritual growth. While it is still considered an alternative to modern medicine, scores of evidence suggest that it is effective to our emotional and psychological health.
38" Earth Gong
From the Planet Series: a group of gongs attuned to the vibrations of the planets in our Solar System. I use the 38" Earth Gong in my sessions.
The 38" Earth Gong: speaks to the Heart and Throat Chakras and is related to the colours Blue and Green.
Virtues: Relaxation, balance, renewal, alignment.
Balances: Tension, connection with Nature, loneliness.
My experience playing this Gong: Strong Grounded vibration, powerful connection to the Earth - 'Song of the Earth'. Connection to the 4 Elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Awakening a primal feeling of connection that more Primitive People knew. Songs of the Ocean and Whale-Song.
What can I expect?
Every new client has a full client consultation, followed by a Sound Healing session - either within a CranioSacral session or on it's own. This is usually performed whilst lying on my treatment couch fully clothed. Using a deeper sense of 'tuning in' or 'intuitive seeing' to work with the body, mind and soul, I work sensitively with Sound to create the right level of pitch and vibration for your system.
Sound Healing Therapy is not intended as primary healthcare but to work alongside the relationship you have with your doctor.
1.5hrs - £60 to allow for a full client consultation
1.5hrs - £60 or 1hr - £45
You will find more benefit if you can create space and time around your session, drink lots of water and rest or sleep.
