Find Peace & Connect to Your Inner Self with Sound Healing.
Our own sound healing practitioner, Gina Marchese, uses a number of instruments and methods to create a space for deep healing to occur with each of her clients. Gina uses singing bowls, tuning forks, drums, a harp, and more!
What is Sound Healing?
Sound healing can be beneficial to those who are suffering from physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments as well as those who are seeking peace and enlightenment. The healing frequencies of the different instruments and sounds can help elevate one’s vibration to bring balance and harmony within the body and mind. This is an immersive sound experience as the sound practitioner holds space for the client’s healing, sonically.
What to Expect:
A sound healing session at Gateway Healing Center lasts 60 minutes. This is a one-on-one experience in a private and cozy room. You will be guided by the sound healing practitioner to sit or lay in a comfortable position that facilitates deep relaxation. As the session begins, you will be wrapped in sound and vibration– it becomes quite the meditative experience! Each session is unique for each client that comes through our doors. Although we can’t predict exactly how an individual’s session will impact them, some people have experienced the following during a sound healing appointment:
- Feeling full of energy
- Experiencing a deep sense of peace
- Falling asleep
- Laughing and giddiness
- Crying and/or release of other deep emotions
You don’t have to be a musician, experienced meditator, or a spiritual guru to benefit from a sound healing session. Those who come to this session with an open mind and heart tend to have the most transformative experiences.
How to Prepare:
There are no prerequisites or major preparations needed before your sound healing appointment, however it is recommended that you eat lightly and reduce caffeine intake beforehand.
In order to be present and ready for your sound healing practitioner, make sure– first and foremost– that you leave any preconceived notions or judgements about yourself or the modality behind you. You should come comfortably dressed, preferably in layers, in case the temperature of the room feels too warm or cool at any point during your session. If you have a favorite pillow or blanket you like to use for meditation, feel free to bring that. We recommend that you bring a bottle of water. Some clients like to bring a notebook and pen to journal about their experience afterwards.
