Have you ever had a Sound Healing session, or have you ever heard of it?? Sound Healing is the most amazing way to heal your body, mind, and spirit!!
So, what is Sound Healing?? How does it work?? I will explain that and so much more in this blog!! Keep on reading!!!
What is Sound Healing???
Also known as Sound Therapy, Vibrational Medicine, or Sound Bath, this practice employs the vibrations of the human voice as well as objects that resonate such as...Tuning Forks, Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Bells, Chimes, Drums, Chanting, and Gongs. Allowing you to go beyond relaxation and actually stimulate healing!
The person(s) being treated to a Sound Healing session will be laying or sitting in a comfortable position and have a Sound Healing Practitioner sing or play different resonating instruments.
Everything is a Vibration!
Everything and Everyone holds a unique vibrational pattern. When we are happy, we are vibrating high...and when we are sad that vibration changes to that of one that's very low and unresponsive.
If we continue to vibrate at these lower places, it will manifest outward in our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies... in a way that is not beneficial to us. Sometimes, manifesting in the physical you would show signs such as: sore throat, sore muscles, painful areas in body, etc, just to name a few.
The life force energy that surrounds Us and Is Us... is known by different names: Aum (Om), Prana, Chi, Ki, Mana, Baraka, Spirit, Quantum Energy.
Studies have actually shown that sound has a direct impact on the mental process, nervous system, muscles, pulse (heart beat), digestive system, and circulatory system.
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, medical oncologist in NY has used Sound Healing on his cancer patients. He has used Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, and Chanting. His research shows that the sound vibration of the bowls affects the dysrhythmic motion found in cancer cells, causing a harmonious transformation.
It's an Ancient Thing!
Sound Healing is nothing new, it's something that is defiantly making a come back!! I think that people are starting to "wake up" and realize that there are far more better options to healing our bodies than the pills the Drs. always give. There are so many holistic health modalities that can help heal with the only side effect being getting better!!!
The use of Sound Healing is believed to date back to ancient India, Europe, Greece, Africa, and the Orient.
If you really think about it, music and sounds really dictates your mood. If a baby is crying, or people are fighting... it's not a sound that is enjoyable, and so you will want to move away from it immediately (low vibes).
Whereas the sound of rain falling is relaxing, or the crashing ocean waves is zenful. Different sounds can manipulate your moods, changing your vibration. The crying baby would be a lower vibration, and the rain a higher one.
Throughout history music has been a tool to boost morale in military troops, and help people work more productively.
Different Types of Sound Healing...
My favorite!! Singing Bowls date all the way back to the 12th century. They have been used in mediations, and rituals in Tibetan culture. Tibetan Singing Bowls are the ones made of metal that produce a deep sound that helps relax and repair the mind.
As I do have a Tibetan Singing Bowl, my all time favorite to work with is the
Crystal Singing Bowls!!
My collection has already started and I'm looking forward to getting many more soon!
The Crystal Singing Bowls each resonate with a different Chakra point within our Energetic Body. In fact, it helps bring those Chakra points back into alignment just by simply playing them!
Each bowl is made of 99.99% pure Quartz Crystal making them highly resonant... oh yes, now you understand why I love them so much right? Due to their Quartz content, they are highly programmable....allowing me to be able to achieve some amazing healing with the people I share it's lovely sounds with!
Another amazing part of the Crystal Singing Bowls, is you just don't hear them with your ears....you actually FEEL their vibration though out your body!!
Each Crystal Singing Bowl has it's own special Hz frequency that affects different parts of the body as well as the Chrakra's (Energetic body).
My Crystal Singing Bowls are tuned to the standard 440 hz
1st time playing my Crystal Singing Bowl
(G=Throat Crystal Singing Bow)
Each Crystal Singing Bowls are different.
Here is a list of their different notes, hz, and which chakra they resonate with:
C=261 Hz (Root Chakra)
D=293 Hz (Sacral Chakra)
E=329 Hz (Solar Plexus Chakra)
F=349 Hz (Heart Chakra)
G=391 Hz (Throat Chakra)
A=440 Hz (Third Eye Chakra)
B=494 Hz (Crown Chakra)
Here is a clip from a podcast interview I was on demo of my Big Boy that I call Groot
(C=Root Chakra Crystal Singing Bowl).
Drums: Another way to work with Sound Healing is through drums. There are so many different type of drums you can work with, the one that sparked my interests was the Tongue Drum!
The Tongue Drum has such a lovely peaceful tranquil sound, it's sure to put your mind, body and spirit into a relaxed state.
Last year on Mother's Day all I wanted to do was visit my favorite spot in the local Mountains, hike around, enjoy the sounds of nature and give back by not only picking up others trash...but by playing my Tongue Drum for the forest friends!! Luckily, I have a very supportive family and they escorted me on this journey! It was so amazing and peaceful up there... here I am playing my Tongue Drum!
Tingshas: Bells or Chimes are an amazing way to clear stagnant energy from a space leaving it crispy feeling again! I love to use my Tingshas when I end a Healing Session, I feel it helps bring you back to your present moment and helps ground you faster than without it!
Tuning Forks: I have yet to try them for myself, but they look and sounds mighty cool!! Tuning Forks are similar to the Crystal Singing Bowls as each of the different Forks affect different Chakra points.
Gongs: Gongs are another amazing form of Sound Healing. Again, nothing I have used personally... however I have been to a mediation session before where they used them! Let me tell you how that sound of the Gong transports you to a different dimension (at least that's how I felt!)! It's very relaxing and clearing. Neat to try!

I honestly have stories for days about how I have used a Sound Healing Session to heal myself, family, friends and pets (yes animals too)!!
One that stands out that I'd like to share is the time my Daughter had a sore throat! Nothing was helping her, so I said... I know what we can do! I had her lay down and get comfy and I started to play my Crystal Singing Bowl (Throat Chakra "G").
As I played, I would stop from time to time and check in with her! I asked how she was feeling and she said the painful spot moved from the middle of her throat to the left side!! I was like, ok...let's keep going then! I continued to play and same results, but opposite side!
After about 15 minutes of playing my Crystal Singing Bowl I stopped and asked her how she was feeling now? She said, "I can't believe it...it doesn't hurt anymore!"
WOW! She explained that it felt like it was slowing creeping out, like it kept going back and forth till it finally was gone!!
Amazing!! I was so impressed and happy that my new little Crystal Singing Bowl was so Magickal!!
Try it for yourself...
Anytime I do a Crystal Chakra Balancing on my Clients, I always incorporate a little Sound Healing too! My Clients enjoy it so much and again, as I have said... I've seen such transformation and benefit from them!
I have a New Service that I'm offering called...

My Crystal Sound Healing Sessions would go as follows:
Once you are comfortable, I will guide you in a meditation to help bring you into a relaxed state of being. Then I will proceed with playing my Crystal & Tibetan Singing Bowls followed with an intermission of my Tongue Drum and finishing off with my Singing Bowls again!
During my session, you will also hear me chanting or singing along from time to time as I feel called to do.
My sessions go for 45 minutes and cost $40 per person (minimum of 2 people per session).
The best part is...I come to YOUR LOCATION for this amazing and beneficial "Crystal Sound Healing" Session!
Invite as many people as you'd like to experience it with you! Great for the whole entire family!
