What is a sound healing session with me like?
Sound is vibration that we can hear and we hear, believe it or not, with our skin and bones as well as our ears! So sounds can be penetrating, offering healing and relief to the body.
Most of us have been programmed in one way or another and the pathways set strongly in our brain. Sound is so powerful it can actually induce brainwave states, it can spark healing interaction between the left and right brains, and it can stimulate new and expansive patterns that break our minds out of old habits. As a form of meditation, sound can induce deep states of relaxation.
I don’t know too many people who are not moved by music. One of the beauties of sound is that it touches our emotional center, the heart, in such a direct way that it can often free up emotion without much thought going into it. It may be that the sound knocks right through some painful block or it awakens a feeling that you haven’t felt in a long time. Regardless of the case, it can bring great relief to emotions that have not found expression and are inhibiting your ability to be healthy, happy, and thriving.
Sound can often times embody the presence of something bigger than ourselves. In my experience, most healing is done from a place of surrender and trust that some force beyond us can heal us. And you don’t have to believe in God or any particular religion or spirituality to receive such an experience. You can name it whatever you want! What matters is that sound can represent that thing to our being, inviting us to surrender and trust when we may otherwise feel hopeless or try to will ourselves through a challenge.
Well, what sets me apart from other practitioners is that I am a musician first, so I bring a unique sensitivity to the characteristics of music and sound: tone, texture, melody, harmony, and rhythm as well as well-practiced technique and use of voice to create a nuanced offering catered just to you. A sound healing session with me can be fun! With my intuitive and improvisational approach, these numerous sounds in different combinations are like having your own private concert.
In my sessions, I combine my musicianship with a deep empathy for humanity and training in various frameworks of healing. These include energy medicine, grief work, light work, empathetic listening, and Earth-based ceremony. I also bring a tender, playful, and faith-filled spirit to our sessions so as to bring lots of light and hope to any situation. I can meet you wherever you are at with the right framework to make the session meaningful and effective for you. Then, we just let the sound do its thing.
