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 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!
An Ancient Science
Reiki is a Japanese technique of directing Universal Energy along energy centers, or chakras, and energy meridians of the body to produce balance, harmony and vitality. It is often used in conjunction with other modalities and treatments to facilitate more ease and peace in one's life.
Reiki may be given "hands on" as well as with intention, even from a long distance.
What Clients Are Saying About Mark Buhrke
“Each encounter with Mark is a Homecoming”
GabrielNelson Sears - Atlanta, GA - Gabriel Of The Light
“I can attest to Mark's extraordinary skill at this wonderful art. I had a session with him Christmas weekend with incredible results. Much physical and mental stress-related tension was released, and I was much calmer and relaxed than I had been in weeks. Slept very well that night and woke still feeling better. Mark helped me past a real bump in the road.”
Laura C. - Lakeland, FL
“I participated in a virtual sound healing session with Mark, hoping to calm and release some of my ever-present stress and anxiety. Mark began the session by fully explaining the techniques be would be using and then asking thorough questions about what was going on with me at the time. Next, we worked on grounding my energy back into my body. Once I felt safe and grounded, he intuitively used tuning forks and other sound therapy tools to bring my cells healing and balance. Listening to the sounds virtually worked just as if I were there in person, as I could feel stuck energy within me moving and releasing with each sound. By the end of the session, I felt extremely relaxed and calm and I slept so much better that night! Will definitely be back for another session!”
Wendy H. - Kernersville, NC
“I tried my second vibrational sound session with Mark. My first session was done in person. I wasn’t sure how everything would work because we were virtual. I could feel every place he was telling me to breathe through. I was amazed that he could help push out negative energy and that he could sense the emotions that I was feeling in the moment. It definitely is an amazing way to work out stress and emotions. I plan on doing a lot more sessions with him.”
Katie G. - Greenville, SC

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?
It 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 a Reflexology 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.
What if I’m pregnant?
PLEASE inform Mark, your Reflexologist, if you are pregnant. There are certain areas of your feet that will not be touched if you are pregnant. Mark has found that women who are pregnant love the relaxation of Reflexology as well as the balancing of body systems which supports them and their baby during pregnancy.
Are these modalities ever combined?
Reflexology, Reiki, and Vibrational Sound Therapy all help the body come into balance which helps in recovery after workout and injuries. Sometimes Mark is guided to place tuning forks on reflexology points to combine the two modalities.
Reiki is an energy that Mark feels creates a field, a space for people to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions. It's generally part of a Reflexology and Sound Session.
May I gift this to others?
Yes. Many people enjoy Reflexology, Reiki and Vibrational Sound Sessions so much that they want to share them with others. Gift Certificates are available and the people who receive the gift also love how they feel after their session.
Who is your Ideal Client?
Mark works best with people who take their health and well-being seriously. They know their body can return to balance and peace naturally with just a little outside guidance, love, and support. This aligns people with their innate ability to perform optimally. Reflexology, Reiki and Vibrational Sound Therapy give them this support, allowing for more peace and relaxation in their lives.
This could be an athlete looking for added recovery support or the athlete that wants to be more grounded and balanced to add an edge to their game. It could also be someone who wants to support their body that is already healthy or that person who knows relaxation and balance promote all aspects of their lives.
