Sound therapy uses sound and sometimes music to positively influence the physical and emotional health and well-being of listeners. Sound therapy offers an accessible way to engage with ones own mental and emotional world without language. Sessions are sliding scale and include flexible scheduling.
There are many styles, formats, and lengths to our sound therapy sessions. Based on individuals needs and preferences, our instructor Mirza Shams can facilitate pre-set or highly individualized sessions.
