Sound Therapy Sessions

PRIVATE AND GROUP SOUND HEALING THERAPY SESSIONS…


The Alchemy of Sound now offers private Sound Healing Therapy sessions and group events on the Sunshine Coast and beyond.
Incorporating a selection of world instruments for relaxation and harmony, including Gong, Tibetan singing bowls, alchemy crystal bowls, tuning forks, freenotes wings and chakra pipes. Used by therapists these instruments produce multiple overtones and are recognized for their potency in balancing the energy centres, inducing a deep sense of peace, tranquility and well-being.
Everything in the universe is vibrating at it’s own natural frequency. We are vibrational beings aligned with these frequencies, and when we’re healthy, our cells, tissues and organs are vibrating in harmonic resonance. Illness, dis-ease or stress results when a part of the body begins to vibrate at a different frequency, out of tune with the rest. Prolonged periods of imbalance can lead to major health issues. Through the intentional use of sound and vibration, a more harmonious and healthy state of resonance is restored.
We not only hear sound, we experience it as powerful rhythmic vibrations resonating deep within our body. Sound waves travel from the outer ear throughout the body via the 10th cranial nerve or vagus nerve. This then connects the brain to all major organs and affects our heart rate, breathing, digestion and more.
As we entrain with the sound and vibrations, we shift into an alpha-theta brain wave pattern associated with deeply meditative, relaxed and peaceful states. Our heartbeat slows; our breathing deepens and relaxes creating a therapeutic effect upon mind and body. When brain waves and body are synchronized, balance is restored and stress is released.

Music for alcohol and drug dependent children

Beautiful share from yesterday…a gentleman shared with me that he is a carer for alcohol and drug dependent children. One child under his care had great difficulty sleeping, until he purchased and started playing our ‘Gently Now’ CD. Now he said “she sleeps for up to 10 hours”. So he purchased two more CDs for two new children in his care who likewise are not sleeping through….

Avoid Prenatal stress by playing a Freenotes Wing

Freenotes · Wings · Tibetan · singing · bowls

Over the past several years new scientific research has overwhelmingly shown that there are many benefits to playing music while pregnant, including; positive affects on fetal brain development, prenatal learning, reducing stress levels during pregnancy, improving a baby’s sleeping habits after birth, and providing a wonderful bonding opportunity in utero.

“Pre-natal stress hugely growths the likelihood of a child having attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, cognitive delay, anxiousness and depression. Stress during pregnancy as well increments the risk of the child being autistic and, in rare cases, schizophrenic. Stressed mothers also produce babies with lower birth weight, which can be an indicator for coronary heart condition in later life.” – Vivette Glover, Professor of Perinatal Psychobiology, Imperial College London.

Freenotes Wing for terminally ill patient

A ‘C’ Major Freenotes Wing was purchased this morning by a terminally ill woman living in Bundaberg Qld. She first heard the Wing at the Childers Multi-Cultural Festival in 2013. The Wing will be her companion as she lays in her bed – very moving story, yet such a beautiful awareness she holds knowing that the gentle harmonic tones of the Wing will be her musical companion, and the intimate connection to her higher Self in the days ahead.

Koshi wind chimes are more than just a wind chime

There are so many positive aspects to the four elemental tunings of the Koshi wind chimes that make them so uniquely potent, and most importantly make them an essential factor if you are considering your overall wellness and balance.

Firstly they are handcrafted by a small group of artisans at the base of the French Alps. The Koshi chimes are constructed using an outer eco friendly bamboo veneer casing (Feng Shiu wood element), they have an inner steel component (Feng shui metal element), they are tuned to the four elements – Earth, Fire, Air and Water (three more Feng shui elements). So from a feng shui perspective the Koshi chimes are very potent energetically.

Using Koshi Wind Chimes to Enhance Your Meditation-Relaxation Calmness

By

Expert Author Pratika S Kshemya

To remain detached from the ‘thinking’ mind is the goal of every meditator and those seeking a calm and peaceful existence. In those moments of deep relaxation and inner silence a deep and abiding calmness is realized. Then maintaining a calm awareness through the remainder of the day is a key test of how your practice is progressing.

Creating a controlled meditative/relaxation environment around you into which you can retreat, affords the best opportunity to be relaxed, calm and peaceful. Here away from unnecessary distractions you can proceed relatively undisturbed. But what happens to the calmness achieved here when you ‘step out’ into the hustle and bustle of the outside world, or if you are not a meditator but seek to live a calm, relaxed and more peaceful life.

What Makes Koshi Wind Chimes So Appealing

Living in Australia it is so easy to escape the ‘unnatural’ sounds of the city and escape to the quiet tranquility of our natural landscapes. Here away from urban ‘noise’ we can relax surrounded by the sounds of nature, where it is so easy to experience clarity, peace of mind, and a general sense of well being.
