The International Sound Healing Institute was created to teach and spread the knowledge of the healing properties of sound. clef-799256_1280

To accomplish that goal we have studied sound healing modalities from around the world and offer you that information in a condensed format in our hands-on seminars and workshops.

If you are a professional health care worker we can show you how to integrate sound massage into your work, and increase your income Since the “sound-work” is utterly relaxing, not just for the client, but for the therapist as well, you’ll be able to work longer hours, yet feel energized instead of tired at the end of the day. If you just want to help yourself (or friends and family) with sound massage therapy, you’ll learn how many ailments and especially chronic conditions respond favorably to the sounds of the Tibetan Healing Bowls. A seminar with us will allow you to use the bowls and amaze your friends and clients.

Through the International Sound Healing Institute you will gain the knowledge, skills and expertise necessary to provide sound healing to your clients, family and friends, as well as experience the many benefits of the power of sound for your self.
