Sound Therapy with the Tibetan Singing bowls stimulates the brain to make changes that increase your abilities, and may benefit you in the following ways:
Sound Healing with Tibetan Singing Bowls can be used for many types of healing – physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual, as you can see with the many benefits mentioned above. Each bowl is made up of 7 – 9 different metals – anything ranging from iron to gold. They are unique in a way that not one of the antique bowls is made up the same way or have the same composition. This gives each bowl its own unique sound vibration and tone and in some cases multi tones.
When the bowls are played they “sing” in a way… They offer a unique sound that vibrates at a particular frequency that is then placed on or near the body.
These sounds can be very relaxing, which contributes to some of its “healing potential”. When the body reaches a natural relaxed state, the energy is freed up so that the body can do its natural healing work.
Often used for people who suffer from high stress or anxiety to help relax and calm the mind and nervous system.
I have used the singing bowls in sessions with highly anxious clients before, as it helps to calm the mind and the emotions and bring my client to a place where they can actually deal with the issues that cause the stress and anxiety. I have found that these particular clients are a lot more resourceful and hopeful about finding a solution to their “stress” or “anxiety” from a relaxed place. Rather than just falling into talking about the problem – which often has an adverse effect and creates more stress and anxiety.
Many clients have come for sessions to purely get in touch with deeper emotions or develop specific abilities – like getting in touch with their creativity.
What a sound healing or singing bowl session can be used for is endless.
One of the ways Sound Healing works is on the basis of "Entrainment". Entrainment was first discovered in 1665 by Dutch scientist Christian Huygens. He set up a room full of pendulum clocks with their pendulums swinging at slightly different times. When he returned to the room the next day, he found the sway of the pendulums had all synchronized.
Thus, entrainment occurs when the powerful vibrations of one object actually change the less powerful vibrations of another object. Should the vibration of your body, specific part of your body or even organs be out of kilter due to illness, stress or injury? The sound vibration of the singing bowls can help bring up the vibration through entrainment.
Through "entrainment", sound healing promotes deep relaxation, reduces stress and pain and also develops self-awareness and creativity.
"If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us into the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder."

"I feel a shift on all levels physical, emotional and spiritual after the sound healing with Jo-Anne. I found Jo-Anne to be professional, safe and compassionate. I just loved the sound healing sessions and will definitely make it part of my self care and maintenance of my energy levels. Thank You Jo-Anne!"
"I feel calm and free from anxiety - a first in many years. Also my backache has vastly improved. I felt so safe during the sound therapy sessions. Overall it has had a profound positive effect on me on a physical and emotional level. I highly recommend Jo-Anne and her work to anyone without hesitation. "
"I didn't know what to expect from the Sound Therapy sessions. Jo-Anne put me at ease and it was easy to relax around her and in the setting. I definitely benefited from the Sound Therapy sessions. I feel more relaxed, present and open."
