A Series of Sound Sessions
Interactive Sound Session for Holistic Healing
Activate your body’s natural ability to heal through an interactive sound session. During this experience, Jinah will guide you through light movement, simple breath work, and visualizations that send you drifting off into the healing vibrations of a sound bath. Each stage of the process is curated to support you in receiving the maximum amount of benefits from the process. Break up congested energy in the body and activate the chakras with movement. Exhale stale energy and calm the mind through breathwork. Then, let your subconscious mind explore new levels of growth through guided visualizations and sound. Through the use of alchemy crystal singing bowls, gongs, various chimes, and other healing instruments, you will experience a deep state of relaxation along with an array of other dynamic benefits. Evidence indicates that the soothing comfort of music can potentially decrease stress-related illnesses and serve as a catalyst for emotional and psychological healing.

What is a Sound Bath?An immersive mind-body experience where the participant is “bathed” in sounds. Soothing yet powerful healing instruments are used to induce a deep state of relaxation resulting in an array of benefits.
Why Sound?Music is a familiar part of life for most people around the world. Music as medicine transcends time, languages, and cultures and is old as medicine itself. Evidence indicates that the soothing comfort of music can induce relaxation, reduce pain and anxiety, and potentially decrease stress-related dis-ease in the body. Studies show that a combination of sound bowls, deep breathing, and visualizations, along with love and kindness meditations, serves as a catalyst for emotional and psychological healing. Unlike medication and yoga, this form of relation and stress relief does not require training or a great deal of discipline making it an extremely simple and accessible wellness modality. Simply lying down and listening to a combination of singing bowls, gongs, and other meditative sounds induce a deep relaxation response which positively affects one’s mood and sense of well-being. Participants may even fall asleep if desired and still receive the benefits. At the very least, participants will feel a deep relaxation and inner peace following the sound experience. A Little History… Hippocrates, the father of Greek medicine, was known to play music for his patients. Aristotle used music as a force that purified the emotions. Plato believed that music attuned the soul to the cosmos. In Chinese medicine, music is thought to possess a “quasi-magical transformative power.”
Why Light Movement?Most of us sit or stand in one spot during the day locking stress-energy and creating tension in the body. Movement helps to unlock congested energy while energizing the mind and body. Through the clearing of congested energy, the body is able to receive greater benefits from sound and/or meditation.
Why Mindful Breathing?Mindful breathing helps to ground us in the present moment facilitating the process of “letting go” before the sound bath and/or meditation even begins. Mindful breathing has been reported to decrease stress and negative thinking while reducing anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed and burnout.
Why Visualization?Much of our life is guided by the pictures that we create in our head. When we learn to use these images to our benefit through guided multi-sensory visualizations, we have the ability to increase our joy, confidence, and productivity. Because our subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between fantasy and reality, we become limitless, setting our lives into complete expansion. In an article on the success of Michael Jordan, the author states: Jordan started to practice the mindset of visualization, imagining himself making the game-winning shot well before he stepped on the basketball court. Jordan’s imagination fueled his confidence, drive, and belief in himself. — Christopher D. Connors, The Medium I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp in-focus picture of it in my head. — Jack Nicklaus, Golfer
