Oriental Sound Bath Healing
We took the measurements before and after the ‘sound treatment’. The special application of sound lowered my high blood pressure and normalized my irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) without the use of medication. …” Mary Connolly (occupation: school teacher)
What is ‘Ancient Sound Bath’ Treatment?
Oriental Sound Bath is a special treatment during which a client is immersed in an ‘ocean of healing sounds’ generated by acoustic means and using many diffrent, ancient instruments, e.g. Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls, gongs, bells and chimes. These instruments carry deep and powerful vibrations, which reverberate throughout entire room, enveloping and passing through the body, organs and bones. The feeling is that of opening, spacesness, release, deep relaxation, peace, centredness and profound sacredness.
How does Ancient Sound Bath/ Healing work?
Ancient instruments are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create sound harmonics at the frequency of primordial vibration of “OM”. This sound frequency known as that of Perfection impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being. Some work with vocal toning, color and visualizations may be integrated into your session to help move energy. In every case, Kris strongly refers to the clients inner wisdom to help in the healing process.
What are the benefits? Among the many are relief from pain, stress- related conditions and the ability to alter ones consciousness. It is an integral part of healing the effects of chemotherapy, reduces pain and discomfort from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and depression, After sessions clients experience improved memory, clarity, vitality and the ability to take action. Many report out of body experiences, a deep sense of tranquility, sleep soundly and feel the effects of the treatment for several days.
What are sessions like? Sessions last one hour and take place fully clothed on a mat on the floor. Bowls are placed and played all around your body, head and on your charkras(energy centers). Clients are asked to wear comfortable clothing without buttons, zippers or jewelry. After the session you are offered a refreshing drink before you go home.
What is a Distance Session? For those who live outside the area, we use the telephone with headphones for effective sound healing sessions that include visualization. Call or email me for more information.
How many sessions will I need? I recommend as a minimum, 4 weekly consecutive sessions followed by 2 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart. It takes at least 4 weeks to change a habit or form a new one. The first couple of sessions often produce energetic and physical discharge the releasing of blocks, stressors and toxins. They allow us to also develop a trusting relationship so you can better relax and receive the maximum benefits of the session. The next several sessions are dedicated to strengthening and anchoring you to the sound of the bowls creating a strong alignment focused on your particular area of need. I also introduce some focused dialog and/or visualizations that allows you to get in touch with areas of challenge or positive intentions while you are in an ‘altered state’. This creates a strong mind/body connection and improves the ability to heal. After the initial sessions we eveluate your progress and needs. In order to maintain this alignment, most people benefit from a tune up visit several times a year..
Can people who feel fine benefit from a session? Yes, very much so. People have used the Tibetan Bowls for centuries to alter their consciousness and attain deeper meditative states. Many clients also treat themselves to a session to gain clarity on an issue, re-vitalize and just feel great and even more connected to the universe.
Should I do anything between sessions? Drink water, pay attention to shifts that occur and listen to the CD of the bowls or play your bowl if you have one. Other recommendations are offered on an individual basis.
What is the cost of a session? This depends on the number of sessions you have.
