Do you crave space? Want the feel of a week’s worth of rest and a deep massage but don't want a hands on approach? Want a supercharged blissful time away from the norm? Want to treat a loved one or yourself to some much needed relaxation time? If you say yes to any of these then a sonic massage is most definitely for you.
You’ll be invited to lie down and after a short listening meditation the gentle sounds of the Alchemy Crystal Bowls will move over you like waves gently washing away any stress and helping to unblock any emotions that no longer serve you well. Sound only needs 5 minutes to help you enter a state of Theta brain wave activity and 20 minutes or more is a deeply nourishing experience. You may fall asleep or you may enter a blissful state of relaxation.
These sessions, also known as Sound Baths are either 50 or 70 minutes.
Do you have a clear intention of working through a period of feeling stuck? Are you holding on to tensions, old behaviours or emotional blockages that you want to move through? If you are clear about this intention then these sessions are for you.
These sessions are all about subtle work where you take a more active part, but let me be clear……there is very little to actually ‘do’. You will pay attention to the body and any tensions through deep listening and the sounds it makes. By staying in the moment and inviting in the somatic felt experience you’ll set the conditions for tensions and issues to shift and soften. In turn you’ll be listened to, witnessed and with gentle guidance you will see subtle but big results. When we have reached an end to the period of noticing we will use a gentle sound bath to sooth and help integrate the session before you leave. These sessions will last as long as they need to but will often be between 50-90 minutes.
I offer free telephone consultations to people considering this. After one initial appointment we will work together for either 4 or 8 sessions depending on your intention.
A session is typically 60 minutes and held in groups of up to 15 people. You are invited to lie down and will be provided with comfortable mats and blankets. Jo will then play different Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls and use her Voice to blend overtones creating relaxing sounds that put your mind and body into a deep sense of well-being, during which you may fall asleep or enter a blissful state of relaxation. Following the end of the session you will be gently awoken by percussion instruments and there will be a few moments silence before returning to the outside world. Some sound baths may also start with some breath work, movement, meditation and intention setting to give an even greater restorative result.
Please wear comfortable clothes and feel free to bring your own additional blankets. You must arrive at least 5 minutes before the sound bath begins as admission after that will not be allowed as this may disturb the experience of others.
Weekly Sound Baths are currently held at Union, Margate on Thursday evenings 8.30pm - 9.30pm and can be booked on line here.
