  • Personal 1-2-1 Soundbath
  • Soundbath for Two - you and a friend - both in Eley Cresecent, Brighton BN2 7FE on a day and time to suit you.

Relax as the beautiful sounds and tones of gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, rainsticks and other therapeutic percussion instruments wash over you whilst you rest on a comfortable yoga mat with cushions and blankets (or chair if you prefer).

Sound is applied therapeutically which helps to relax the system on all levels of being; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically/spiritually and offers the potential for deep transformation, bringing calm to the body and mind and helping brainwaves lower to levels that are similar to meditation or those experienced just before you fall asleep. Proven to relax on a deeper level than other relaxation methods.*

The sound can induce a state of deep relaxation and allow you to rest there with the effect that cortisone (i.e. the stress hormone) reduces, blood pressure and heart rates are lowered, potassium & sodium levels in the body are rebalanced and cellular regeneration can take place which, in turn, helps our autonomic nervous system to restore. The sound also initiates a 'conversation' with the system and creates a space within which an individual may see themselves and their process more clearly, through reflection and enquiry. After the session, you are invited to share your experience with the group if you wish.

*The original BAST method has been shown to be, on average, 64% more relaxing than conventional relaxation methods (Cook 2009)

Sound Therapy
1-2-1 Treatments

Bespoke Sound Therapy treatments for your specific therapeutic requirements using a combination of Gongs, Crystal Singing Bowls, Himalayan Singing Bowls, Mantra, Drum, Tuning Forks and Therapeutic Percussion..

As with our soundbath sessions, 1-2-1 sound therapy helps to enable deep relaxation and offers many other health benefits such as relief from physical pain, reduced stress and improvement in stress related symptoms, working on all levels of being, physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically/spiritually, in a person centred way.

Sound therapy combines sound applied in a specific way with a self-reflection technique which can increase self awareness and mindfulness and provides a space where therapeutic sound can initiate a 'conversation' with the system and an individual may see themselves more clearly through reflection and enquiry through the 'Cooper Sax '5Rs' Model of Experiential Processing'.

Himalayan Singing Bowl Therapy
Himalayan singing bowls are often described as 'nurturing', 'warm', 'safe' and 'gentle' can be used in combination both on and/or off the body for a wonderfully relaxing treatment. Sonic Massage -

The drum's 'sonic signature' has been described as 'grounding', 'natural', 'primal', 'warm', 'earthly' and 'stabilising'

Mantra Therapy
The repetition of Sanskrit mantra in order to balance mind, body, emotions and spirit. The practitioner chants one or more mantra as the client relaxes either laying down or seated. Mantra therapy is deeply relaxing, taking one to a state of being similar to that of meditation, softening ego and enabling a client to experience a more unified, peaceful state of being, opening up the space for the transmutation and transformation of energy from one state to another. Clients have described mantra therapy as 'deeply comforting and nurturing' and 'like a sonic cuddle'

Gong Therapy
Gongs can be both gentle and nurturing as well as powerful and physical

The gong's 'sonic signature' has been described as 'expansive', 'rich', 'powerful', 'relaxing', 'layered', 'dynamic' and 'deep'

Voice Therapy
1-2-1 treatments - In a passive treatment, Ruth uses specific vocal techniques ‘toning’ and ‘overtoning’ to affect the brain and nervous system, producing a therapeutic effect for the mind, body and emotions. The active method uses 21 different exercises incorporating movement, breath-work and visualisation.
Voice therapy has often been described as 'warm', 'nurturing', 'holding' and 'safe'
Group sessions - Deeply transformational & therapeutic voice-work sessions

Crystal Singing Bowl Therapy
Crystal singing bowls are very unique sonically, they encourage deep relaxation and create beautiful musical intervals which can really help transform and release

The crystal bowl's 'sonic signature' has been described as 'beautiful', 'clear', 'pure', 'expansive', 'peaceful', 'ethereal', 'mellow' and 'bright'

Tuning Fork Therapy with Kinesiology
Tuning Fork Therapy has proven to have great potenial in helping those who are finding their flow of life restricted by anxiety, fears, phobias, traumatic events and is also beneficial for releasing negative/limiting beliefs and patterns of behaviour.
Kinesiology (muscle testing) - A person's energy level is weakened if they come into contact with something that does not serve them, anything that does serve them will strengthen the energy system and this is also felt within the muscles. The therapist uses muscle testing to tap into the client's 'bio-computer' to identify the optimum tuning fork therapy treatment for the client
