Sound Therapy / Sound Healing / Gong Baths
An invitation to relax and immerse yourself in the healing sounds of gentle vocals, drum, gong, crystal bowls and other percussion.
Using a particular method of playing, Sound Therapy can influence brainwaves and enable us to enter altered states of consciousness (ASC). This can bring benefits such as an improvement in our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing , reduced depression and anxiety and better sleep. Sound Therapy can allow us to release physical, emotional and mental tension, and help us to move back into balance.
For the session, participants are invited to lay down on a mat with a pillow and blanket and other comforts, (or sit in a chair if mobility restrictions).
Sessions start with a short relaxation exercise for grounding, before a combination of the instruments are played. Aftercare guidance is provided.

Just BE Sound and Movement Therapy is run by Alison Heaslewood who has received training in Sound and Movement Therapy from the British Academy of Sound Therapy. Following a five year episode of chronic pain in her twenties and a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, she turned to alternative methods of healing, including Sound Therapy. Along with sound, movement was instrumental in her full recovery and as well as offering sound journeys, she holds separate sessions to weave sound and movement together. With five years vocal training she enjoys bringing soothing vocals into her sound sessions along with other percussion. She also co-hosts Mantra Meditations/Singing Circles and creates nurturing and relaxing spaces for anyone seeking a space to Just BE.
