What is Sound Therapy?
Sound is the energy, or waves, that all living things, or matter, produce, when they vibrate.
Sound healing works on the human body, by sound waves of specific therapeutic frequencies, travelling down to the cellular level to re set cells to their natural state.
It can, and will balance emotions, the nervous system, energize the human body, calm the body, yet make it stronger at the same time.
Therapeutic sounds from healing instruments, can feed and nourish every aspect of our being. They can heal, balance, undo states of disharmony and restore us to the perfect being we were born as.
Blockages can be cleared from our bodies that have arisen in our lives, often from emotional traumas. Old energy can be released and new energy brought in, allowing the body to self heal.

Do you bear the scars of being told "you were not good enough," as you grew up?
Were you told "you couldn't do this or that?
Do you remember hearing "you would never amount to anything"?
If so, these statements may have been stated along with your name each time. Does this make you dislike, or even hate your name?
Have you changed your name,a little, or completely at some point in your life?
If you do not always like the sound of your name, you could be making life very difficult for yourself, every time you hear it.
How good would it be to hear your name sung lovingly by others?
This beautiful, empowering experience offers the chance of both giving and receiving, love and compassion, as you nourish your inner child, through singing others names to them, in a safe and sacred place.

What is a Sound Bath?
During a sound bath, you are immersed in an amazing mix of sounds and vibrations from sound healing instruments, including, Tibetan singing bowls, Crystal bowls, energy chimes, tuning forks/pipes, drums, gongs, voice and silence.
A sound bath is very healing to the mind, body and spirit.
Some people use a sound bath as a meditation.
A sound bath will bring you on a journey into deep relaxation, and help to induce a wonderful feeling of peace and calm.
How does it work?
Every cell in your body vibrates at a particular frequency.
As the sound travels through your body, the healing frequencies and vibrations, are absorbed by every cell, tissue and organ, helping to release stress and tension, and return the body to a state of homeostasis.
What actually happens during a sound bath? You lie down on the floor, on a yoga mat, or similar, with cushions and blankets for warmth and comfort.
When the sound begins, you enter into a world of vibration and sensation.
What happens afterwards?
Most people will have a deep feeling of relaxation, although some do find it stimulating and energizing.
The days following a sound bath can see old emotions released, with feelings of stress and tension reduced and a continued feeling of calm.
A Wellness Workshop incorporating a Sound Therapy session will be held on 22 September 2019. Why not join us and experience this wonderful relaxation for yourself?
