Breathwork is an active form of meditation that allows us to disconnect from the mind and be guided by our body. As we breathe out thoughts, beliefs, memories, actions that do not support our growth, we return to our wholeness and feel more equipped to handle stress and trauma. There are many different breathwork techniques, and each one has a special purpose and effect.

Sound Healing Therapy

Everything has a vibrational frequency, including us. Sound frequencies are vibrations that have the capacity to permeate into the physical and energy body to induce healing. It’s a practice that uses vibrations (vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks) to help you relax. Some proponents also believe it can relieve certain ailments, including anxiety and insomnia. Sound healers (often called “sounders”) say that it works by lowering blood pressure, improving circulation and reducing respiratory rates.

The term Reiki refers to energy healing that originates in Japan. Although this practice is not new, it has become more and more popularised in recent years. Through hands-on practice, an “energy practitioner” will channel a transfer of  frequency, transmuting any limiting negativity stored in our chakras and that they feel is stored within the body and release this. The results are feelings of calmness and tranquility that last for up to a few days afterwards.
