“Sound represents the most powerful of transformative energies known throughout creation.” Patrick Bernard – The Yoga of Sound
If you are in need of healing or change in your life – or if you would simply like to relax and de-stress – the gentle power of sound is ready to transport you to a place of harmony and wholeness.
Sound Healing with Gongs and Other Instruments
The sound of the gong is so comprehensive, dense and all-encompassing that it cannot be matched by any other instrument. For many sound healers, it is the single most potent instrument there is.
The skilfully played gong gradually builds up into multi-layers of sound that contain all the tones and harmonics of the sound spectrum. Some of these tones we hear, but others are complex frequencies above and below our human hearing and these we experience as subtle energy. Thus, the gong’s sound has become known as the sound of total resonance because we hear it at all levels of consciousness.
The Healing Power of the Gong
“Every gong bath is different and the sounds that come through are the ones that the recipient needs at that particular time. There is an innate intelligence at work and everyone gets exactly what they need in every moment.” Sheila Whittaker – In the Heart of the Gong Space
During a gong treatment, our physical bodies reverberate with sound and we feel cleansed and rejuvenated afterwards. Aches and pains may disappear and joint mobility may improve. The gong sound also increases our sense of mental and emotional wellbeing. Many people say that they feel more relaxed, peaceful and less stressed after a gong treatment, while others feel calmly energised and blissful. Blockages on a mental level are often cleared, leaving people able to change old thought patterns and out-dated habits.
Sometimes, simply being in the presence of the gongs and enveloped in their sound gives us the sense of being held in a loving embrace. This can feel like a gift of grace that connects us with a transcendent reality beyond our finite selves. In this state, healing can occur on all levels.
I work with an exceptionally powerful combination of five gongs: a 34” Paiste Symphonic gong and four Paiste Planet gongs: Mercury, Chiron, Nibiru and Uranus. You can read about their individual qualities on The Gong page.
The gongs are supported by other sound healing instruments, including singing bowls, tingsha, bells, chimes, monochord and natural percussion sounds. I may also incorporate voice, harp and various flutes, if needed.
Reiki Drum Technique
In addition to Sound Healing with gongs, I offer the Reiki Drum technique. This is a combination of Reiki and shamanic drumming that can deepen traditional Reiki healing and reinforce positive affirmations to re-programme mental and emotional attitudes. More on the Reiki Drum Technique.
Your Sound Healing Treatment
Sound Healing for individuals takes place at my High Wycombe studio. Here, I provide a safe space where you will be supported throughout your session. This is a space of total acceptance, so you need not be anything other than yourself. Everything that occurs in this space is strictly confidential.
