Sound Healing

Traditional Sound Healing practiced with Nepalese 7-metal bowls is the ultimate way to tangibly experience deep relaxation and deeply meditative states. The low vibrations emitted from these instruments tune the brain to slower and lower wave states, theta and sometimes delta, which allow the parasympathetic nervous system to initiate. Often people believe that they have been out for hours when finishing a 1-hour bowl session and report feeling well-rested as if they'd just had the best night's sleep in years. The purpose of sound healing is also to clear and move any stuck energy in the body and auric field; A combination of deep singing bowls and higher pitched chimes are used in tandem to release toxins from physical tissues and clear emotional and mental energies. Bowls are played on the body which can have profound benefit for those who suffer from deep muscle pain or injury, singing bowls can be filled with warm water to help alleviate tension and provide a whole new dimesion to this type of therapy. much of what has been written here is yet to be discovered by a majority of the U.S. population, don't wait, discover this healing gem for yourself!

A major crisis crossed my path 2 years ago. After turning to my doctor, chiropractors, therapists, I eventually opened up and decided to see what an alternative practitioner had to say. Why I didn't go see Melissa earlier I can't say, regardless, I am glad that I found her, she helped put everything into perspective which I was sorely missing from anyone else. I have been taking Melissa's advice and am feeling better than ever, the crisis which may have led to further health challenges has been averted and my path to wholeness has green lights once again.

I have known Melissa  for 6 years and remember her going to school at Bastyr. I am not sure they gave her the ability she posseses. I see a wise woman behind the flesh of a young-faced girl who expresses intuitive insights well beyond her years. I was given no choice but to seek advice for a medical condition for which I and my doctors had no answer. After a few months of treatment combined with herbal suppliments recommended by Melissa, I was healed. I had lost hope and was saved by an angelic being. I am forever grateful for your help and your service.
