Ann Martin BLISSbowls™ Creator/Instructor firstname.lastname@example.org 303-378-6250
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 now incorporate over 50 different instruments into every private session or event. 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 a thriving private practice where I offer sessions featuring new forms of bodywork that I’ve developed called BLISSbowls™ Sessions. I use the bowls on and around the body to calm the mind and relax the muscles so massage and energy techniques are more effective. This unique experience stops 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 clientele consists of all kinds of people: from a 6-year-old with ADD to a 94-year-old with arthritis pain. The bowls offer healing benefits to everyone, without exception! (At this point I am unable to take on additional clients. Check back.)
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, and others to create a unique singing bowl event that exceeds expectations, creating lasting positive change in consciousness.
