Sometimes it has even left me home bound. After my first VST and Reiki healing session with Rachel, I felt joy and I noticed that the anxiety dissipated. You wouldn’t think these bowls would do such a thing, but it truly does!! Thank You Rachel for helping me find peace you have helped changed my life. I cannot say it enough.”
Vibrational Sound Therapy
Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) has profound effects on the body and the mind. The VST method is above all a method of relaxation, and most people will reach this state of relaxation quickly, even during their first session. During a VST session the body will go through noticeable changes as it responds to deeper and deeper states of rest. Relaxation is not only a physical state but also a state of consciousness, and VST has very strong effects on alertness and perception. Relaxation during a VST session brings on the same kind of brain states as yoga, tai chi, and meditation.
Vibrational Sound Therapy could be described as getting a sound massage. Sessions are done on a massage table. You are fully clothed the whole time, so wear comfortable clothes without metal decorations (to avoid the bowls clanking). Shoes will come off and socks are usually a good idea, I can provide a blanket if you desire. I advise removing extra jewelry before you come. It’s good to be well hydrated before you come, but you’ll definitely want to drink plenty of water after your session.
If it’s your first time, I’ll describe the session and I can adjust the session style if you have any concerns.
The bowls are placed on the body in a specific pattern, from the upper torso to the feet. They are struck with a felt mallet to create a gentle vibration that you’ll feel, as well as a bell-like tone you’ll hear. Some bowls may also be used near the body.
Most clients will start to relax as soon as the session begins. Their muscles will lose tension, and they may even start to slip into the alpha brain wave pattern within the first minutes. The alpha wave pattern is associated with daydreaming and pre-sleep. At this point the client’s breathing and heart rate will start to slow down, and the body will begin to absorb the waves of vibration into its tissues.
VST is so gentle and relaxing that almost all people will fall asleep at some point during the session. The theta brain wave state is associated with meditation, sleep, and deep relaxation. The delta brain state is a deeper form of sleep and is also associated with hypnosis and ritual. During normal sleep, people will oscillate between both of these states. The brain wave state of clients undergoing a sound massage will change naturally and in reaction to the modality as positions are changed and different bowls are introduced. Small tremors and shakes are common as people enter and exit the theta and delta brain rhythms.
Those who undergo a state of deep relaxation often report a feeling of mental freshness that they carry with them after the session is over. Relaxation and meditative states of mind have also been shown to increase the threshold for emotional response, meaning they can help us control our emotional responses to outside influences. Like other kinds of meditation, sound therapy can help us be more internally aware while being more present in the moment and more connected with our surroundings.
The session should always be comfortable and relaxing, so if at any time you feel anxious or uncomfortable please tell me so we make adjustments.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese relaxation technique which uses a hands-on approach to facilitate stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki uses the power of the natural “Chi” or Earth Energy to create a condition through which the body is able to relax and begin healing itself. The Reiki practitioner simply serves as a “channel” for the energy.
