The human body and Planet Earth are made up of energy, vibrating at different frequencies. When out of rhythm, disease and disharmony results. Vibrational sound healing addresses imbalances or blockages of the energy channels. The body can heal itself when given the proper frequencies. Vocal Sound Healing techniques include singing, chanting and toning ancient healing sounds for balancing the organs, chakras, energy field and for manifestation.
After experiencing various plant medicine ceremonies in Brazil, Colombia, Peru as well as the U.S., no convincing was needed about the power of sound healing. A range of instruments have moved Wendy Faith to tears in ceremony, but nothing compares to the healing power of the human voice. Wendy is extremely grateful to be in ongoing studies learning ragas (ancient Indian chants) with her Brazilian vocal teacher, Silvia Nakkach, and icaros (healing songs with particular meanings and purposes) with a Peruvian curandera. These are sung most often in Spanish and Quechuan (the most widely spoken language family of the indigenous peoples of the Americas). Wendy also supported the tambour (drum) in her first SunDance in Colombia (2013) having learnt traditional Lakota SunDance music.
The right instruments also carry particularly healing vibrations. Wendy has invested in 300-400 year old authentic antique Tibetan singing bowls made of seven alloy metals corresponding to the seven chakras. Singing bowls are used world-wide for meditation, music, relaxation, and personal well-being. In sound healing or “sound massage”, the bowls can be placed around or sometimes on the body of the recipient. The practitioner uses the resonance of the bowls’ harmonic vibrations within the human body for activating or balancing of the body’s energy centers and for deep relaxation.
Wendy has also studied healing with tuning forks under the guidance of sound healing pioneer, Dr. John Bealieu. Tuning forks come in a range of pitches and frequencies that will instantaneously alter your body’s biochemistry to bring your nervous system, muscle tone and organs into harmonic balance. You can experience states of deep relaxation in seconds, reduce stress instantaneously, increase blood flow, enhance immune response, fully integrate body & mind and literally transcend to higher levels of consciousness. In addition to individual sound healing sessions, Wendy enjoys incorporating singing bowls and song in her bodywork and yoga sessions.
