Sound Healing Acupuncture combines the powerful, ancient practice of acupuncture with multiple forms of sound-healing methods. Sound healing harnesses the principle of acoustic resonance to adjust the central nervous system. Like the strings on a resting guitar that vibrates in tune with music played off a nearby sound system, the human body responds to the harmonics that surround us. Enter the studio and lie down in a nest of bolsters and blankets that are ready and waiting.
As Kenny takes you on a sound journey relaxing and preparing the body and mind, Mark will begin moving through the room from one side to the other, swabbing the sites with alcohol and placing the needles. These delicate acupuncture needles will be placed at meridian points related to stress – one at the top of the head, one on each hand, and one on each foot. If you need to do so, please feel free to gently reposition yourself as needed even after the needles are placed.
When sound and acupuncture are combined, the needles placed at stress points act as amplifiers for the sound vibrations, increasing the impact on the body. As you surrender to the multi-layered vibrations of sound healing therapy, these sounds will infuse the needles with energy, and lend support to the body during the peaceful experience of group acupuncture. Healing sounds are offered in a variety of textures and tones and may include gong, singing bowls, Tibetan tingsha and temple chimes.
The acupuncture and sound work synergistically to release you more deeply into a state of relaxation, and release - ultimately rebalancing your internal rhythms. Once the appropriate length of time has passed, Mark will move thru space removing the needles as he goes. Kenny will continue playing allowing everyone to come to full awareness again.
Sound frequencies, whether generated from singing bowls or gongs, have a direct therapeutic effect on the mind and body. Utilizing various frequencies of sound has been proven to effectively soothe patients, alter brainwaves, and physically aid in the healing process. The combination of sound healing and acupuncture is extremely powerful.
We invite you to join in this amazing journey towards balance and ease. All are welcome. Just bring your curiosity and make sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
