Where old meets new...

Sound healing massage therapy has been developed by drawing on ancient Eastern practices and modern scientific research into the effects of sound and vibration

The ancient art of sound healing has been around for more than 5,000 years. In many cultures around the world, sound has been used for celebration, ceremony, prayer, medicine and healing, including tribal drumming, gong playing, and voice in chanting and singing. Today knowledge and research are being developed and adapted in the West to suit the needs of a modern lifestyle.

Sound healing is based on the frequency of sound.

The combined sound and vibration can induce a deep sense of meditative relaxation, which helps to de-stress the mind and body.

How does it work?


Based on the theory that vibration releases trapped energy

that’s been stored around the body; this type of massage uses

sound waves to produce gentle, rhythmic pulsations.

These pulsations or vibrations are strategically sent through the

body, massaging the cells and working out any stored-up tension.

Simultaneously, the range of frequencies emitted by the bowls

has a calming effect, drawing the brain into a meditative state.


During normal daily activity, our regular brain frequency is that of Beta. The sounds gently draw the brain, first into the Alfa state and then Theta and Delta, where deep relaxation and meditation occur. Whilst in this deep meditative state, the heart rate slows, and the body is able to rejuvenate and find peace of mind.

To generate the sound and vibration, the practitioner uses one or more Himalayan bowls. Made from at least seven different metals and varying in size and weight, the bowls produce sound across a range of frequencies and are used to target different parts of the body accordingly.

Following a session, the client can continue to experience the benefits of having been in the meditative state for some time. Calmness reduced anxiety, and the ability to think clearly and remain focussed are just some of the benefits of regular sound treatments.


It receives much positive feedback from my clients receiving it, such as pain relief, feeling deeply relaxed, feeling more peaceful, being able to do more things, such as being able to move better, etc...

"Sound healing balances and clears the mind and leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well-being, calm, and happiness."

Sound and Frequency


At its most basic, sound is vibration—invisible, physical waves that move through the air and are interpreted by the brain via the ear. The loudness of sound is measured in decibels (dB), while the frequency, or size of the waves, is measured in a unit called a hertz (Hz); the higher the number of hertzes, the higher-pitched the sound.

The human ear can detect a range of anywhere from 20 to 20,000 Hz, with the average adult hearing range being about 2,000-5,000 Hz. It’s finding the right frequencies; sound healing can have a positive effect on the human brain and body.

There are two basic ways that sound can affect us, one’s called psycho-acoustics, and that’s where sound goes into our ears, into our brain and affects our nervous system, our heart rate, our respiration, our brainwaves, [our] blood pressure. The other is called vibro-acoustics, and that is where sound goes into the body, affecting you on a cellular level.

As our bodies are made up of 75 per cent water, and because water is a great conductor of sound vibrations, different sound frequencies influence all the cells in our bodies and help us to rebalance our organs.

If cells in the body are not vibrating at their natural, healthy frequency, sounds that match that frequency can help restore them to proper balance, thereby bringing about physiological change.

What Happens In A Treatment Session?

​Sound therapy, or vibroacoustic, massage is a full-body, clothed massage, where a Himalayan singing bowl (or bowls) is placed on the body to create healing vibrations that penetrate our physical structure and support the mind-body connection.

At Pure Bliss Holistic Therapies, we use our master bowl, HARA, to work along the meridian lines of the body to help release stagnant energy, emotional blocks and physical discomfort or pain. We also use our other bowls on the body, which are played and used throughout the session.


It’s important to note that the meridian lines are essentially our energy network - channels through which our energy, or Qi, flows. In Chinese Traditional Medicine, the condition of these channels is attributed to our overall health and is strongly believed to impact our mind, feelings, thoughts and physical body.


A full body healing with sound and vibrations to reduce stress, assist with pain, relaxation, and more. Handmade Brass Himalayan singing bowls of different sizes are gently placed on the body (over clothes) and played. The client hears the beautiful rhythmic sounds and feels the soothing vibrations.

Great for physical, emotional and energetic relaxation. We all vibrate at our own rhythms. When we hear the sounds of the bowls, our energy entrains with the resonance of the sounds. Modern life and the energy we pick up from the world around us (such as electrical devices) affect our natural rhythms, and listening to the pure sound of the bowls balances our mind and body. Singing bowls induce theta brain waves which are perfect for meditation and can facilitate deep relaxation and healing.

One of the most promising applications of sound healing, suggests recent research, is in the area of stress and anxiety relief. sound healing may help reduce stress by reducing cortisol, the stress hormone, and increasing oxytocin, the body’s feel-good hormone.

If you are on a mission to reduce stress and improve your general well-being, then why not try a sound healing massage for yourself?

It’s non-invasive, gentle and calming and raising your vibration can only invite more optimism and confidence into your life.



Sound therapy massage has been proven to decrease anxiety and depression, improve breathing by reducing phlegm in the lungs, support bowel movements as it massages the internal organs and tissues, and penetrate deeply to the fascia level and the meridians and chakras of the body. Overall, it can be ideal for anyone dealing with mental and physical pain from an injury, as it provides a great opportunity for rehabilitation.
