For the past 25 years, Aeriol Ascher, Metaphysical Teacher, Intuitive Healing Master and Vibrational Sound Therapist, has been helping severely stressed-out people in the Silicon Valley reduce their stress levels from as high as 7+ to 2 or 3 using Reiki and aromatherapy techniques.
In recent times, Aeriol has introduced clients to her unique, deeply relaxing self-healing modality called Soma Sound Therapy (somatic sound therapy). The results have been profound!
After the first session itself, some of Aeriol’s clients reported that their stress levels (as high as 9.5) went down to zero, with this powerfully soothing Vibrational Sound Therapy.
The effects of Soma Sound Therapy are cumulative, which means you relax more deeply in less time after each session.
It works through vibration. Unlike an acoustic sound bath which works on the ears, Soma Sound Therapy works on the body (somatically). The metal bowls are placed directly on the body to induce a state of gentle relaxation by sending vibrational waves through the body's tissue. This hypnotic vibration activates the parasympathetic nervous system allowing the body to heal itself.
Each metal bowl emits a profoundly calming vibration that radiates out all the negative energy and stress, which curtails your ability to realize your full mental, physical, and spiritual health. The resonant sound impacts your body on a cellular level, releasing the flow of positive energy to restore and re-tune your body to health and inner peace.
Western science is now recognizing what ancient tradition has known for ages: the healing power of sound. Quantum physics has shown that everything in the universe, including every human, has a vibration. This vibration is the signature of your health and well-being.
Due to stress, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions, your body's vibrational harmony gets disrupted, and the healthy flow of energy gets blocked. This can have adverse physical, mental, and spiritual consequences.
Soma Sound Therapy uses the power of sound to generate a positive inner vibe, which is the most critical aspect of healing. It not only helps reduce stress and negativity, but also lowers blood pressure, mitigates the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD, improves concentration, boosts immunity, sharpens perception and intuition, and enhances creativity.
Soma Sound Therapy is ideal for anyone seeking to relieve acute stress and anxiety.
singing bowl for sound healing
I went into my sound healing session as a skeptic. But I have to say, I came out of my session a firm believer! I've tried many modalities to deal with my anxiety (meditation, massage, talk therapy) before but sound healing was a different experience altogether. It was almost as if someone had done all the hard work of meditation for me, without any of the effort. I felt deeply relaxed, mentally and physically calmer, less anxious and had less "noise" in my brain after the sound healing session - I'd say generally more "in tune" with myself. I'll definitely be adding sound healing to my arsenal of treatments!
My sound healing session with Aeriol awakened my awareness of where I was holding pain and tension in my body.
I found it very relaxing and restorative as the pain left my body moments after I felt the sensations arise. The session lasted about 40 minutes but I felt as though I took a 2 hour nap. Thank you, Aeriol!
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the bowls and sound healing although I was very excited about it. It was different it was more of a feeling thing than a hearing thing although the Bowls sound beautiful. I think the thing it affected most was my chest which was very congested from a bad case of bronchitis. After I left I felt a lot of the congestion in my chest had loosened up and I just felt better all around.
I also had a lot of essential oils during my massage that day and the combination is very powerful. I was extremely relaxed, it felt wonderful. I hate to get up and leave. I want someone to carry me out like a baby!
