  • Sound Bowl Healing:

    A sound bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. These waves are produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and even the human voice itself. Research shows that sound, through chanting, drumming, etc., can synchronize the brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation. As we bring harmony to the entire system, we bring the diseased parts back into alignment with their normal vibratory frequencies.

Our certified practitioners channel universal life force energy to restore balance and vitality, dissipating energetic blockages and revitalizing your body's innate capacity to heal itself.

Immerse yourself in meditation in motion and let Tai Chi's healing energy flow through you.
