My multidisciplinary background began over 20 years ago with advanced credentials in neuromuscular massage, energy modalities and corrective bodywork from the Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood, Colorado. I worked in medical massage clinics, pain centers, and private practice to help people of all ages deal with pain, stress and discomfort in their physical bodies. Since I began using “therapeutic singing bowls,” I am better able to meet the goals of people with complex issues resulting from stress, disease, injury, aging, emotional issues and more because of the amazing physiological effects of sound and vibe on the mind and body.
I have acquired a special family of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls that all play together in harmony around the tone of "OM" to help quiet and balance the brain while diminishing stress in the body. I also draw upon my 30-year career as a professional singer/musician to achieve transformation on a mind-body-spirit level through this "Musical Medicine."
Private Practice: I have maintained a thriving private practice for over 25 years and out of that experience came new forms of healing work called BLISSbowls™ Sessions. I used the bowls on and around the body to calm the mind and relax the muscles so massage and energy techniques are more effective. These proven techniques stop the mind-chatter, deploys the body's 'relaxation response,' reduces pain from stress-related maladies, and brings the individual to a BLISSFUL state of pure presence. My new calling is offering this knowledge and training in a worldwide education platform where anyone can learn these skills and help themselves and others.
Classes & Workshops: I am gratified to teach professionals of all kinds how to integrate the benefits of bowls into their work. Teachers, psychologists, hypnotists, nurses, doctors, caregivers, PT’s, musicians, ministers, and many others have read my BLISSbowls™ manual and taken classes from me to amplify their healing intentions in their professions. The techniques I’ve developed are based in science, yet simple enough for anyone to grasp. CLICK HERE to find out about BLISSbowls™ online classes.
Concerts & Events: I haul over 50 sacred sound instruments to presentations for small group gatherings and large-scale meditative concerts. People come for the mind-altering effects of the bowls and gongs on their busy brains, and the deeply relaxing vibrations for their bodies. In addition, I work with support groups, (cancer, PTSD, grief, etc.), retreats, churches, businesses, and others to create a unique Sound Immersion that exceeds expectations and creates lasting change in consciousness.
