Science has proven that our bodies vibrate at various frequencies of sound, using sound vibrations to heal is quite sensible. If we imagine our body as an instrument, by using sound we tune, harmonize or synchronize ourselves to the same sound that we are using during this therapy. So in essence we are giving our bodies a "tune up". The most obvious benefit you can expect is experience a more relaxed, present, stress free state of mind. In sessions, Elysse uses aromatherapy, guided imagery and relaxation techniques to easily facilitate clients into peace and relaxation.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT): Also commonly referred to as “Tapping,” is described as a, self-healing tool based on the Chinese Medicine acupuncture points located around the body to help restore & balance the body’s energy, mind, body, and spirit. Through EFT you will mend the negative emotions, traumas (big and small), and physical symptoms that stem from the energy disruption. EFT is used by therapists, doctors and a multitude of health practitioners on the premise that you are accessing and rewiring your brain’s neural networks and connecting with subconscious programing in order to reduce tension, promoting a deeper mind-body connection. “EFT gives you the best of both worlds, body and mind, like getting a massage during a psychotherapy session.”- Dawson Church
