Earth Sounds© sound therapy is also beneficial for the therapist conducting the treatment who will also greatly benefit from the balancing, calming and healing effects of the healing sound frequencies.

How is the Earth Sounds Therapeutic Sound Medicine© treatment conducted?

Firstly the Earth Sounds© Practitioner will spend some time in consultation with the client to discuss the intention for the treatment and also to determine if there are any other issues which need to be addressed in the treatment session.   The Earth Sounds© Therapeutic Sound Medicine treatment may consist of one or more combination of the following, as intuitively determined by the practitioner:

  • Therapeutic transformational guided meditation (TGM©)
  • Sound Massage
  • Biofield Tuning
  • Sound bath meditation.

Therapeutic Transformational Guided Meditation (TGM©) is the Earth Sounds© form of guided meditation combined with positive mind coaching, a therapeutic intervention to bring about a desired long lasting positive change.  For example calming the mind for stress reduction, using the body’s own power of self-healing, or perhaps to aid in chakra balancing.

The Earth Sounds© method of Therapeutic Sound Medicine clinical treatment is a method of placing the prescribed therapeutic grade Himalayan singing bowls of certain healing frequencies on and around certain places of the body in a specific sequence to work with the chakras and the body meridians.   The bowls are struck and/or the rim is rubbed to activate the bowls and produce a resonance or sound. 

The intensity of the sound waves generated from the combined metals of the bowl cause sound vibrations to travel through the skin and into the body.  It is the sound vibrations which break up and clear away any blockages of the “chi” or life force energy flow at a cellular level which aids in clearing and balancing the energy of the mind and body. 

Healing crystals may also be used in a prescribed manner to enhance and assist with the sound treatment.  Unlike traditional massage therapy where the practitioner is hands on, with sound massag, the practitioner does not touch the client – it is the sound waves which massage the body.

The Earth Sounds© method of bio-field tuning is a treatment method using specially calibrated tuning forks of Pythagorean frequencies to work around and on the body to break up and clear away any dense energies and energy blockages which might exist either in the aura, the energy field surrounding the body or on the body itself.   As with the Himalayan bowls, the bio-field tuning treatment with the prescribed Pythagorean tuning forks will improve the health of mind and body by assisting the body’s “chi” or life force energy to be brought back into perfect balance and harmony.   Healing crystals may also be used in a prescribed manner to enhance and assist with the Earth Sounds© bio-field tuning treatment.

Sound Bath Meditation is the playing of one or more instruments of the practitioners choice to bring about the desired effect to clear and balance chakras and “chi” energy flow in and around the body.  The instruments are played in the room around and near the client as they lay peacefully in a state of meditation and relaxation The sound frequencies work on both the subtle and physical bodies for healing and wellbeing of mind and body.

The full body bio-field tuning with Pythagorean tuning forks is a very different treatment to the full body sonic massage therapy with Himalayan bowls, and a combination of the two can be used, depending on the client’s needs.  The Earth Sounds© practitioner will intuitively determine the best treatment option for the client based on the initial consultation.

The objective of the Earth Sounds© Sound treatment is to clear and balance the body’s energy systems to facilitate homeostasis, the optimum state of perfect harmony, health and wellbeing of mind and body.
