So, what is it?
Vibrational sound therapy is a therapeutic technique that utilizes sounds and frequencies to soothe, calm down, and re-balance your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states. Humans have been using sound therapy for tens of thousands of years - the earliest account that we have discovered comes from the Aboriginal Australian peoples nearly 40,000 years ago through the use of the well-known didgeridoo. The ancient Greeks were known to use sounds and music to treat mental disorders, and the ancient Egyptians crafted incredibly sound chambers in the pyramids.
Our bodies are outputting multiple different frequencies every moment dependent on how our energy is running through our bodies - the presence of energy alone creates an EMF (electromagnetic field) around you due to the moving electric charges through your body, i.e. positive ions (like sodium) and negative ions (potassium.) Did you know that MRI machines use sound and vibration to take photographs of your internal organs? If it's good enough for Western medicine, it's even better for us.
During a vibrational sound therapy session, you will be comfortably positioned on a well-cushioned treatment table while we play different instruments and looping frequency tracks. The sound waves produced will physically and energetically reach with your energy field, massaging your nervous system while potentially triggering physical sensations like tingling, prickling, chills, or heat waves as the energies release and re-balance.
So, if you're carrying around some vibrations and frequencies that are throwing you off-center, allow us to reset your rhythm.
Brainwave Entrainment Therapy
Aims to improve brain performance and help the mind and body come back into a balanced state by training the brain to recognize, repeat, and internalize certain brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma waves.
Through the use of tactile, bone-conductive transducers (we lovingly refer to them as vibration stations), uniquely curated frequencies and waves are transfused into the body via vibrations rather than through audible audio tracks, meaning that you’ll feel the vibrations in your body rather than hearing them. We use low frequencies that mimic and stimulate certain brainwave functions that can include: alertness, relaxation, meditation, sleep, deep meditative work, and creative learning.
Note: This is a hands-off treatment session. We will discuss your needs to determine the right combination of frequencies for you, get you situated and comfortable on the treatment table, begin the vibrations and will leave you in private relaxation for your session. At the 30-minute mark, we will turn off the ambient soundscape and allow you to 'wake up' and come out in your own time.

Singing Bowls Sound Bath Therapy
Let the healing tones of the singing bowls bathe you with powerful vibrations that will immediately relax your mind and body. This is a great treatment if you're experiencing stress, pain and restlessness or feel that you need some grounding and a chance to reawaken your body, mind, and energetic system.
We use specialized Alchemy crystal singing bowls which are created with crushed precious stones and metals (sunstone & titanium, opal & platinum, etc.), a C# tuned handheld glass singing bowl, as well as Tibetan style metal bowls.
This treatment is designed to target and release micro-tension being held in your physical body. This therapy can also increase blood flow to muscular system which can help relieve muscle tension and reduce chronic pain. Vibrational sound therapy with singing bowls can also reduce symptoms of stress and may help lower your blood pressure, as well as slow down your breathing and heart rate.
This sound bath can help relax and focus your mind, reduce fatigue, release tension, relieve stress, relax the muscles, boost creativity, soften and uplift the symptoms of depression and sleep issues, stimulate the energetic meridians, and energize the mind, body and spirit.

Customized Sound Immersion
Experience a fully immersive, customized sound bath that will stimulate your energetic meridians, nervous system, brain, and energetic body while releasing tension in the physical body.
A sound immersion will be curated just for you with intentionally selected crystals, scents, sounds, and ambience to aid you in addressing specific concerns or emotional blockages.
Combining the therapies and sounds of ASMR, Alchemy crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, drum and rattle cleansing, the Rainbow Earth gong, and carefully selected brainwave entrainment frequencies, this treatment may help cleanse, realign, and revitalize all your body systems and reset your mind state. A powerful therapy for the ultimate cleanse.

How does brainwave entrainment work?
Brain Entrainment Therapy aims to improve brain performance and help the mind and body come back into a balanced state by training the brain to recognize, repeat, and internalize certain brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma waves.
We have research-backed suggested treatments that may aid in bone and tissue regeneration, fibromyalgia, insomnia, stress, chronic headaches, maintaining focus and developing new neural patterns to stimulate the learning process.
Delta Waves (0.5 – 3 Hz): help release insomnia, headaches, migraines, and anxiety.
Theta Waves (3 – 8 Hz): help to induce deep meditation or trance states, aid in healing recovery, stimulate creativity (daydreaming state), strengthen short and long-term memory.
Alpha Waves (8 – 14 Hz): help to regain a sense of relaxed and collected focus, erase brain fog, can induce a more conscious state of meditation.
Beta Waves (14 – 30 Hz): help to wake up the body, sharpen mental intellect, activate problem-solving pathways, activate and open all five senses, and are great for athletes looking to focus and hone in on muscle memory.
Gamma Waves (30 – 40 Hz): are associated with extreme focus, energy, ecstasy, cognitive processing, memory processing, intense concentration and learning; they are especially helpful for those who are experiencing Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease, major depression, neurological issues, memory issues, and issues with motor function.
High Gamma Waves (40 – 100 Hz): are associated with higher consciousness and high levels of brain organization; they are effective at stimulating the cardiovascular system, improving blood flow, healing from physical injuries by stimulating cellular regeneration, and can be effective for pain relief.
What's the research behind singing bowls?
Poor mood and elevated anxiety are linked to increased incidence of disease. This study examined the effects of sound meditation, specifically Tibetan singing bowl meditation, on mood, anxiety, pain, and spiritual well-being.
Sixty-two women and men (average age 49.7 years) participated. As compared with pre-meditation, following the sound meditation participants reported significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood.
Additionally, participants who were 'new' or previously unaware of this type of meditation experienced a significantly greater reduction in tension compared with participants who were experienced in this meditation.
Feeling of spiritual well-being significantly increased across all participants. Tibetan singing bowl meditation may be a feasible low-cost low technology intervention for reducing feelings of tension, anxiety, and depression, and increasing spiritual well-being. This meditation type may be especially useful in decreasing tension in individuals who have not previously practiced this form of meditation.
How does sound heal?
One theory is that sound works through the vibrational tactile effects on the whole body. Sound could stimulate touch fibers that affect pain perception. One study of people with fibromyalgia found that ten treatments (twice per week for five weeks) of low-frequency sound stimulation improved sleep and decreased pain, allowing nearly three-fourths of participants to reduce pain medication.
Sound-based vibration treatment has been shown to help people with pain from arthritis, menstrual pain, postoperative pain, knee replacement pain. Sound-based treatment has even been found to improve mobility, reduce muscle pain and stiffness, increase blood circulation, and lower blood pressure.
