Sound Healing

What is It?

According to the law of physics everything in the universe vibrates with frequency. Human beings have their own frequencies too, also known as resonances. Sound healing is based on the belief that disregulation or disease in the body is a result of our natural resonance being out of tune or off balance whether due to stress, illness or environmental factors, and that working with frequencies can bring your body back into healthy vibration.

Joan has over 800 hours of yoga training, including trauma-informed yoga, yoga and grief, yoga and addiction, and meditation and breath control techniques. Yoga was my lifesaver after a traumatic brain injury in 2000 and helped me on a long path of recovery.

Ancient Practice

I use a combination of gongs, Himalayan and Crystal alchemy bowls, drums, chimes, bells, and tuning forks. This inward meditative journey allows you to let go and receive a realignment of your energetic body – emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Sound Healing: What Are It’s Health Benefits?

Using sound is an ancient practice dating back thousands of years. Hippocrates was known for using sound to help heal his patients. During a sound bath, where one is in a relaxed position, it allows frequencies and vibrations to wash over and within a person at the cellular level.

Science is still catching up to understanding how sound heals, but the current research is promising. A review of 400 published scientific articles on music as medicine found strong evidence that music has mental and physical health benefits in improving mood and reducing stress. In fact, rhythm in particular (over melody) can provide physical pain relief. One study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that an hour-long sound meditation helped people reduce tension, anger, fatigue, anxiety, and depression while increasing a sense of spiritual well-being.

I often combine this modality with others that help engage the part of our nervous system (parasympathetic) that produces neurochemicals to counter the stress (sympathetic) part of our nervous system. I truly believe in giving my clients a full-body experience that they deserve.
