Like massage therapy, which delivers healing through touch, sound therapy is a form of sensory therapy, and has been used by various cultural groups for centuries. Essentially, sound therapy is a noninvasive and simple therapeutic tool. It can ease, energize, and empower us.
Depending on the practitioner and the clients goal, sessions can vary widely. They may begin with simple breathing exercises or energy work like Reiki, which can help slow the mind and shift focus to hearing. Clients will usually lie down in a comfortable position, sometimes with an eye mask or blanket. Each session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more.
During a massage or energy healing session, sound therapy instruments that John uses and can include are Tibetan Bowls or Solfeggio tuning forks. The instrument chosen is usually an intuitive one or can be chosen by the client.
Experiencing Sound Therapy session can enable deep relaxation, decrease stress, calm the nervous system, increase energy, enhance focus, reduce anxiety, and help alleviate physical pain.
