Healthspace Acupuncturist Rachel Pavitt chats with Stephanie Moore from Sounds of Serenity to find out more about her practice and a sound healer.
Firstly, Thank you for being part of our fundraiser at our Mona Vale clinic for Lifeline recently where attendees of the mini retreat got to experience a sound bath with you. I understand you hold regular Sound Baths on the northern beaches.. how often are they held and where are the venues?
My pleasure . I hold the sound baths every fortnight Tuesdays at Oxford falls peace park and Fridays at therapy works Newport 7-8.45pm. With tea and nibbles provided at the end of the session.
What types of instruments and tools do you use in a session?
I use crystal bowls and Tibetan singing bowls , planetary gong , monochord , voice , Native American drum and soothing percussion instruments during my sessions .
What are the benefits of Sound Baths?
Sound sessions assist with anxiety , depression , hormone imbalances , sleep disorders , immune system , nervous system , chronic fatigue , muscle and joint pain , calming the mind .
What led you into this line of work?
I got into this line of work from my own personal sound journey when I lived in W.A. attending many sound sessions. I was amazed by the changes I had within myself I use to suffer from sleep issues and anxiety and found it hard to quieten the mind . I found since attending the sessions I felt more centred, had more clarity, my immune system improved and my quality of sleep improved . I was amazed by how the sounds work through our body at a cellular level and how it can shift imbalances in the body to assist bringing it back to a more harmonious state .
What do you do to help you to find balance in life?
I find balance in life by spending a lot of time in nature, reconnecting with the beautiful surroundings we have, painting art, playing music and spending time with family and friends, exercising and eating organic foods.
