Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring with me?
In some venues, equipment is provided. In venues where it isn't, bring a yoga mat to lie on, blanket and pillow. Some people like to cover their eyes so an eye pillow or eye mask can be a nice addition. Bring anything else that will make you cosy (e.g. socks, bolsters etc.). The goal is for you to be comfortable and warm.
What do I need to do?
You don't need to do anything. Come along to the event, lie down and get cosy. Then I will play various instruments and you just need to let the sounds wash over you.
What if I'm not able to stay still for a long period of time?
You don't need to stay completely still the whole time. It is perfectly ok to change positions. Using pillows and bolsters can help you find the most comfortable position for you. If you need to move, you are free to do so. Move slowly and mindfully so that you can remain in a relaxed state and don't accidentally knock those around you.
What if my mind won't switch off?
This is a very common question and the good news is sound healing will work just the same. Let go of expectations and trust that the sound healing is doing what it needs to. There may just be things your mind needs to process that day and this can also be part of your healing.
Can anyone have sound healing?
There are some situations where caution is advised. Please see below a list of contraindications.
Sound healing is a powerful tool and you may experience emotions arising or sensations in the body. If you have experienced a recent trauma, sound healing may not be suitable at this time.
It is also not advised if any of the following applies to you:
Severe mental health conditions
Foreign objects in the body (especially metal)
During the first trimester of pregnancy
When you book into a group session you are agreeing that none of these apply to you.
Please note, sound healing may induce labour during the final trimester of pregnancy!
