There are so many physical and emotional health benefits to derive from reiki and vibrational sound therapy, also known as sound healing. If you have any questions, send us a message!
Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) blends vibration and sound to induce a relaxed state in the mind and body. Therapeutic singing bowls are placed directly on the body or around the body, and struck using an intentional and measured technique.
Vibration and sound are constants in our universe and daily lives. When our minds are acutely tuned to tones or combinations of tones, our conscious brain state can be calmed more quickly and efficiently than with meditation alone. Prompt and deep relaxation can be accomplished, which is often beyond our reach with our stressful modern lives.
Singing bowls are placed on the body and or the treatment table. Sound is made through striking the singing bowls in a consistent and measured technique. Clients receive benefit from bowls place on and/or off the body. There is little or no talking during a sound healing session.
A Sound Bath is an improvised concert designed to provide an environment where energy that is no longer needed can be released, shifting the mind, body and spirit into a deeply relaxed state of being. Participants are bathed in powerful vibrations that help entrain their brain waves into Theta.
It is in this deeply relaxed state that physical, mental + spiritual healing can take place, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, cellular regeneration, stress release + emotional/physical healing.
Participants lay in a comfortable position on the floor (savasana), while Stephanie plays the Chakra-attuned Crystal Bowls + Himalayan Singing Bowls, planetary gong, chau gong, wave drum, tingsha chimes and + Koshi Chimes. Many people have reported physical healing, and often experience a night of deep rejuvenating sleep after the sound bath.
Whether you're in a virtual sound bath or in-person, please provide yourself with anything that you may need to feel comfortable lying on the floor for the savasana. Blankets, pillows, yoga mats, bolsters, eye masks, etc. are welcome and encouraged. Wear comfortable clothing and please be hydrated before and after a sound bath.
What is Brain Entrainment?
Brain Wave Entrainment is any procedure that causes one's brainwave frequencies to synchronize with a periodic stimulus (sound, vibration or light) having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state (for example, to induce a trance, dreams, sleep or relaxation.) ~Source: Huffington Post

According to the Mayo Clinic, practicing relaxation techniques can have many benefits, including:
By inducing deep relaxation through sound therapy, mindfulness and meditation has the opportunity to deepen.
Research is showing incredible health benefits to working with sound waves and inducing deep relaxation for improving mobility, decreasing pain, increasing greater sense of well-being and wholeness.
After using Vibrational Sound Therapy, my clients report a decrease in pain, anxiety/worry, stress and report an increase in physical mobility, quicker recovery from physical injuries, better sleep, a general greater sense of peace + connectedness to Self and others.
Harmonize your mind, body, and spirit.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
Reiki can be used to treat any condition, from physical disease to injury, as well as emotional states of imbalance or duress.
Because it helps entrain your brain into Theta, it is wonderful for easing stress. A treatment often feels like a warm and gentle current running through your body, assisting your body’s natural healing process.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God (or Source Energy), many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
