Sound Healing Journey with Sheena

In this journey we use Tibetan Sound Bowls on your body and an OM tuning fork to begin the process of breaking down blockages (physical, mental, emotional) in your body. It also helps heal injuries (frozen  shoulders, back pain, etc) that have been with you for awhile. We use sound to open your energy centres, give energy where it is needed, and balances energy while bringing your body down to its parasympathetic system. We also use the bowls to move your cranial fluid, which protects the health of your brain and spinal cord. It will surprise on so many levels.  60 min
