Sound Massage – NEW

I am currently studying with Peter Hess the use of the singing bowls for sound massage.

  Somatic Experiencing® is... a short-term naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma developed by Dr. Peter Levine.  For very good healthy reasons which ensure our survival, we have fight, flight, freeze mechanisms.  These are healthy self-protective responses.  However, there are times when those responses are thwarted or cannot be expressed, and the energy is retained in our nervous system.
