Our in-house Sound Therapist Lisa Robitaille has a certificate in Sound Therapy and offers private sessions by appointment. Appointments can be booked in the evenings and on weekends.
Sound therapy uses aspects of audio music and instruments to improve physical and emotional health and well-being. It will feel at times like a massage moving through the body but with the use of sound vibration.
Your session can involve:
Tuning forks therapy which uses tuning forks applied to acupressure points and skeletal points to transmit sound through form effectively. Bones transmit sound with precision and the tuning fork feels like a soft vibration moving inside your body. The vibration will be felt at the touchpoint extending beyond, involving other areas attached to the initial touchpoint.
Drum therapy can also be used. Scientific research confirms drum rhythms synchronize the left and right hemispheres promoting brain health and stress relief.
The use of high vibrational audio scapes, as well as voice-scapes, will also be part of a sound session. You will heal are variety of instruments such as chimes, a monochord, guitar, crystal singing bowls and didgeridoo. All tuned for your health and wellbeing.

A little bit of science:
Your brain waves are motivated to move from Beta (alert) to Alpha (relaxed, meditative), offering you the opportunity to lower stress levels and promote self-healing.
Nitric Oxide gently releases, mitigating blood pressure and setting off a cascade of other physiological phenomenon, that directly influence your health, well-being, state of mind, and consciousness.
MRI scans show that the brain switches off the prefrontal cortex at certain frequencies and deactivates the language center and auditory cognition helping you to reach a state of meditation.
