Gong Resonance Sound Therapy
Release, relax and restore with the serene healing soundscapes of multiple gongs. Gong Resonance Therapy sessions are great for those who love a good massage, but don’t like to be touched; for those that need release, but don’t want to talk about their problems. The vibration of the gong is one of the only known instruments that has the power to penetrate our nervous system, invoking shifts in consciousness, and allowing blockages to be cleared on both physical and emotional levels. In these sessions, you won’t just hear the gong, you’ll feel it, as it effortlessly guides you into a meditative state of calm. Think of it as sonic purification of the subconscious mind, or just a deeply relaxing time to come back into a state of peace.
Gong Therapy Sessions start with Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep), bringing awareness to the breath and body in order to open you up to a place of receiving. No experience necessary. All that’s needed is an open heart.

Sound Therapy with Tibetan Singing Bowls
During a session, therapeutic grade singing bowls are placed directly on the body and struck, releasing powerful sound vibrations. As the body is made up of 80 percent water, it is easy to imagine how the vibrations can penetrate deeply into the muscles and tissues, and on a cellular level. The relaxation reflex is engaged, slowing down respiratory and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and gently reducing chronic pain. The long resonant harmonic tones instantly calms the mind into an alpha or theta brainwave state through entrainment. These frequencies are known to access the subconscious, bring about deep insight, creativity, and spiritual awareness.
