Sacred Sound Therapy
Sacred Sounds Journeys
Singing bowls and gong therapy create a sensory meditative experience through the therapeutic tones of the singing bowls. It is an excellent way to calm the mind, open the heart and nourish the soul. I offer one to one and group sessions on request. Please contact me for details.
WHAT IS A SOUND BATH?
A Sound Bath is a vibrant sensory experience that brings deep relaxation, rejuvenation and connection to the Self through the sound journey.
Sound has been used for millennia by ancient civilisations as a healing tool. In ancient Greece, the God Apollo was in charge of both music and healing, and in India, Saraswati is the Goddess of meditation, creativity and sound.
Sound Baths work by taking a person into a place of stillness where they can reconnect to themselves at a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level. Often, in order to cope with today’s fast-paced world, we shut down our senses, suppress our feelings and ignore our bodies.
You can learn to relax and meditate through the power of sound. The complex drone like sounds of the gongs and the other sacred instruments help to entrain (change) your brainwaves from Beta brainwave state (normal waking consciousness, alert) into lower Alpha and Theta states (relax and healing states).
By causing our brain waves to change, Sound can take us effortlessly into an altered state of deep awareness (meditation). This state helps us to access the wisdom from within that is usually drowned out by the chattering mind. In this stillness we can hear and appreciate our body's wisdom returning to harmony. Finding harmony through Sound.
Currently I offer monthly sessions at Yoga Reading where I combine Yin Yoga and Sound.
Yin Yoga on a Sound Journey
Experience calm and meditative inner and outer worlds through Yin yoga on a Sound journey, bathing in the vibrating tones of different frequencies created by various Sacred sound instruments such as the Moon Gong, Crystal bowls, singing bowls, rain stick, koshi chimes, etc.
Expect little movement, deep stretching & long holds to get into those tight areas. We’ll move slowly and intuitively into various lying-down poses. You’ll receive gentle guidance throughout the session. You’ll then lie down, relaxed & at peace on your mat to receive a sound bath of beautiful instruments
This is “me” time with your thoughts and is a great way to meditate. It also trains the mind to be comfortable with the uncomfortable until it passes.
Yin and Sound is like taking yourself to a mini retreat, a perfect antidote to the busy modern life.
Suitable for all levels but please do let us know if you are pregnant or have a heart condition. Useful for relieving stress and pain, and improving sleep. Calm your mind and stretch your body. Cosy clothes, blankets, pillows and eye masks encouraged!

Spanda - the vibration of conciousness
Music has been used since ancient times for healing and transformation. If every sound is vibration and if the vibration touches each and every cell of our body, we can perceive sound with our whole body.
Sound healing is the practice of using audio tones and vibrational frequencies and it works on the basis that all matter is vibrating at specific frequencies. Sickness, disease, depression and stress causes human beings to vibrate at a lower frequency and by increasing vibrations through sound these symptoms can be significantly reduced.
