Sound Therapy

Sound Therapy incorporates the use of a variety of Sound Instruments and musical instrument to support a person bring their body back to a state of balance and equilibrium. Sound Therapy is also a means to balancing both hemispheres of the brain and in conjunction with talk therapy can be another therapeutic way of working that will support you on your healing journey

 

Integral Sound Therapy can be a stand alone therapy in itself or used in conjunction with Psychotherapy. Integral Sound Therapy is Trauma sensitive and aims to treat the whole person and not just the symptoms that a person would present.  It can address the cause of the imbalance.  

 

Trauma Sensitive Sound Therapy is used to facilitate a process for a person to heal themselves.  Research knows 80% of serious physical and mental health challenges are high stress and supressed emotions which are connected with a trauma that has been experienced in the past.  (facts Harvard Medical Institute)

 

Chronic Stress and supressed emotions  are addressed during Integral Sound Therapy Sessions and deals with the underlying causes of health issues. 

Physically the waves and the vibrations can reach the body on a cellular level (our body is made up of more than 70% water so it can reach our cells 4 times faster than if it were to travel through air) clearing trauma and bringing the body back into balance by calming inflammation and relieving pain. Sound also relaxes muscles tissues and promotes blood and lymph circulation and it balances the autonomic nervous system.  

 

Sound as reported by some people may energise, relax, inspire, motivate and rejuvenate us amongst other things.  The power of our intention for the Sound session can have a huge impact on what we experience.

One of the main instruments I use are Gongs. The gong is said to be more than a musical instrument.  There is the possibility that it is an agent of transformation and when it is played the body mind and spirit change.  The purpose of the gong is not to entertain but more to transport you somewhere in order for reintegration to occur.

Breathwork for Wellness

How Breathwork can help you

In todays world there are many forms of breathwork on offer which are fantastic for balancing the nervous system and reducing stress in our lives. “Breathwork” is an umbrella term and there are many different forms of breathing that are used for lots of different purposes .  There are many different breathing styles and techniques and many people use different styles of breathing for different purposes

The type of breathwork I facilitate is Therapeutic Breathwork

So what does that actually mean ?

So really simply put,  is that we use a variety of breathing techniques that not only support us to feel connected to our physical body but also helps us clear , balance and release any emotional debris such as anxiety, stress, depression and trauma that is stored in the body. Breathwork also supports us to balance the autonomic nervous system for balance and restoration of the body.

The style of breathing does not replace psychotherapy but it supports psychotherapy sessions where sometimes words fail us or we cannot find an expression through talk therapy  that is of benefit

Therapeutic Breathwork aims to focus on our psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing and processing our emotions where we do not have to attach it to a story or a series of events.

When we experience Therapeutic breathwork we are in full trust that whatever arises for us in the moment , presents itself to be healed and cleared 

 Breathwork can be done in conjunction with Psychotherapy or can be done as a stand alone therapy.
