Tibetan (Himalayan) Sound Therapy

Tibetan Sound Therapy is a deeply relaxing and beautiful sound treatment of healing vibrations for the body, mind and spirit. The sound is created through especially made Himalayan Singing bowls which make profound, harmonic sounds. The bowls are placed directly on and around the body giving a sound massage as well as a mental and emotional detox. The blissful sounds help to calm, to dispel negative energy and to balance chakras. Sound healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace and well being.
