Vibrational Sound Therapy

Allow Relaxation and Peace
 

Vibrational Sound Therapy is a modality that uses the concept of music/sound/vibration as a way to bring the body, mind and spirit back into balance, harmony and peace. Even singing and the sound of your voice can bring the energy fields of the body back into a state of homeostasis. Many people report that they feel lighter and more relaxed after a session.

Each session is unique to the individual and to that specific moment in time. It may include tuning forks, crystal singing bowls, chimes, drums, and other instruments, even toning or chanting.

Reflexology Sessions

Natural Healing
 

Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and all parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, just like preventive maintenance.”     
–Eunice Ingham

 

Mark likes to think of it as a technique to stimulate neural pathways linking body systems and supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally. In other words, it’s a foot massage on steroids, impacting your overall body. And all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy!

  • What is Reflexology?
    Definition of Reflexology by Eunice Ingham "The Mother of Reflexology" who is credited with mapping the hand and foot charts - “Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and all parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, just like preventive maintenance.” ​ The reflex areas resemble reflex maps of the human body found on the feet. The techniques applied stimulate neural pathways linking body systems and supporting the body's efforts to function optimally. In other words, it’s a foot massage on steroids, impacting your overall body. And all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy!
  • What is Vibrational Sound Therapy?
    Vibrational Sound Therapy uses the concept that we are all vibrational beings with energy fields in and around us. Some say these extend 6 to 8 feet from our bodies, others feel it’s 28 to 30 feet and others feel they may exceed that distance. When we use sound it could be in form of singing, chanting, toning, crystal and Himalayan (metal) singing bowls, chimes, flutes, tuning forks, bells, drums, percussion instruments, gongs, and other instruments. These send out vibrations that assist the energies of the body to come back to homeostasis and balance. When in these balanced states, it allows the body to be at peace allowing for greater health and vitality. There are more and more studies showing how vibrations and sounds assist with this.
  • What should I expect during aReflexology Session?
    Sit back and relax with your shoes and socks removed. You’ll sit in a zero gravity chair or lay on a massage table and Mark will gently touch your feet in specific areas, using a little oil such as grapeseed, coconut or jojoba. If something is tender, tell him. It’s not about suffering through a session. It’s about relaxing and enjoying the process. Some people fall asleep. A few people chat through a session.
  • What should I expect during a Vibrational Sound Session?
    A sound session could be in a group or individual format. Mark generally uses mostly tuning forks, singing bowls and chimes in individual sessions. Groups sessions could include other instruments. The main difference between the two is that individual sessions allow for the placement of weighted forks on the body. Both types of sessions are designed to create a relaxing atmosphere so you may journey into a dream like state and relax. Some people report they have visions or see colors. Others just relax and finish in a more relaxed state. And yet others sometimes get answers to questions. Follow your own intuitive guidance but some people like to set intentions before going into a sound session.
  • How should I prepare for a session, either Reflexology or Sound?"
    Be well rested and well hydrated before your session. Some people like to come with an intent in mind. Others arrive with a concern they'd like to address. It could be a physical, mental, or emotional issue. ​ Mark's intention for each session is to open a safe space for people to explore their own consciousness in such a way that they can be their True Selves and experience more laughter, joy and peace in their lives. This leads to more balance in various aspects of his clients’ lives, allowing their innate to experience more peace and vitality.
  • What should I expect after a session?
    Be gentle with yourself after a session, regardless of the modality. Listen to what your body wants. It’s always best to drink extra water before and after a session because you could be releasing energies throughout the next day or two. Water helps these move through your body. Allow yourself time to rest. Some people feel energized after a session. Others just want a nap. Some people feel emotional and others feel more aligned with their body, mind and spirit. Some people enjoy a bath after a session with Epsom salt and/or baking soda to help remove toxins. If you have any questions after a session, please call Mark. Sometimes people may feel stuck so call Mark as he can assist you with a little added guidance.
  • What is difference between Reflexology and a foot massage?
    Reflexology touches specific reflex points or areas on your feet with the intention of impacting each area or system of your body. Someone who is certified to offer Reflexology has gone through many hours of training to know where each area is and how to work with these reflex points. Foot massage can be very relaxing but it isn’t targeting specific systems and areas of your body through reflex points. It’s touching the feet and rubbing them. Reflexology is pressing specific reflex points on the foot to have an impact on targeted areas of the body.
  • Is Reflexology a massage?
    Reflexology is not a massage. You are fully clothed during a Reflexology session and only need to take off your shoes and socks.
