Sound Baths
& Healing

What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing has existed for thousands of years all over the world, in every religion and culture.

With the use of instruments the use of frequency and vibrations is achieved to help bring the body mind and emotions back to a state of harmony.

Sound healing is a modality now recognized by the NDIS at an alternative therapy

as the result are astounding.

Sound healing has been scientifically proven to affect our brainwaves,

moving from a beta state to alpha or theta (a state of relaxed consciousness).

The instruments we use during a sound bath or healing are Crystal bowls,

Tibetan bowls, Gong, tuning forks, chimes and much more.

“Since the human body is over seventy percent water and

since sound travels five times more efficiently through water than through air,

sound frequency stimulation directly into the body is a highly efficient means for total body stimulation,

especially at the cellular level.

Direct stimulation of living cellular tissue using sound frequency vibration

has shown marked cellular metabolism and therefore a possible mobilisation of a cellular healing response”.

I love the healing properties of my crystal bowls and the amazing response and feedback from people, especially after they experience their first sound bath.

I incorporate sound healing into my yoga practice and also hold dedicated sound baths, internationally certified workshops and retreats regularly.

 

If you would like your very own crystal bowl and/or to learn how to play one please contact me.

Check out my timetable, under yoga classes, for more information on workshops.

I am an Approved Training Provider with the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine (IPHM) and all of my courses are Certified Worldwide.

I am also a member of the International Sound Therapy Association (ISTA) and you can find me on the Natural Therapy Pages as an approved provider.

GAYATRI - Taittiriya Upanishad (4.41.26)

 

Honoring the sun in the feminine and requesting the Sun to dispel the darkness of ignorance and provide clarity and strength. 

This chant is a mantra or prayer to the divine and to practice daily gratitude.

 

This is one of my favorite chants. 

I have just chanted one line.  || samhita-pathah ||

The full chant goes for around 5 minutes and can be repeated over and over.

भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्
Om bhūr bhuvaḥ suvaḥ / tatsaviturvareṇyaṃ / bhargo devasyadhīmahi / dhiyo yo naḥ prachodayāt

 

Gayatri Mantra English Translation:
We meditate on the glory of the Creator / Who has created the Universe / Who is worthy of Worship / Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light / Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance.

SA HA NA VAVATU Originally found in the Krishna Yajurveda Taittiriya Upanishad (2.2.2)

The Om Sahana Vavatu mantra should be chanted by teacher and student together at the start of a class or practice, as a means of calling upon divine blessings for whatever is to be studied. 

Om sahana vavatu

ॐ सह नाववतु

Om, may God protect both teacher and student

 

Saha nau bhunaktu

सह नौ भुनक्तु

May He nourish us together

 

Saha viiryam karavaavahai

सह वीर्यं करवावहै

May we work together with great energy

 

Tejasvi Navaditamastu

तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु

May our studies be enlightening.

 

Maa vidvissaavahai

मा विद्विषावहै

Om shanti, shanti, shanti

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः

Om peace, peace, peace
