Joe Hayes instructs the following:
  • Healing Sounds Session

  • “Everyone has a vibration that is a signature of their health and well-being. Similar to a musical instrument that can fall out of tune, our bodies can also fall out of vibrational harmony and develop illness….Sound and vibration can be used to re-tune and return us to health. One of the most powerful modalities for this is the use of singing bowls...."
     -Suren Shrestha, traditional Himalayan sound therapist, How to Heal with Singing Bowls
