WHAT IS VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY?
AND WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
Deep relaxation and the applied use of sound and vibration can be a pathway to release muscle tension and into a meditative state which are both therapeutic and enjoyable.
By placing the therapeutic singing bowls directly on or very near the body and using her trained techniques,
Flora Jerde creates a vibrating sound massage for her clients.
The Himalayan singing bowls she uses are hand-hammered into their shape in Tibet according to specifications that are designed to impart both pure tone and strong vibration.
Flora has had intensive hands-on training through the Vibrational Sound Association and
achieved certification in December 2018.
She is an accomplished practitioner utilizing a structured modality for sound-based relaxation therapy.
As beneficial as mindfulness and other meditation systems are,
a common concern is the time, patience, and discipline required to learn meditation.
Thus, a form of relaxation and stress relief that does not require a steep learning curve or a great deal of discipline
could potentially be a huge benefit to human wellness and health.
During Vibrational Sound Therapy, Flora invites you to listen to the sounds, observe the sensations that you feel in your body, simply relax and enjoy the experience.
The result is stress reduction that does not require you to learn a disciplined form of meditation.
In fact, you may even fall asleep.
At the very least, clients generally express feelings of
deep relaxation, restfulness, and inner peace following the Vibrational Sound Therapy.
How does it work?
One theory includes the potential effects of bin-aural beats in which the brain channels to the hertz difference between tones played in each ear, propelling the brain into brainwave states of deep relaxation, such as beta waves or even meditative or trance-like brainwave states in theta waves. In addition, potentially the action of sound waves on the body's biofield or energy field could be a factor.

WHO IS FLORA JERDE?
My journey for doing alternative therapies started when I understood how effective Reiki was for my mom, who had been diagnosed with lung cancer. I realized the power of touch was so beneficial and did so much for the body.
I went to Massage Therapy School after my mom passed away. I knew I wanted to do more with other people going through dis-ease in their lives.
After Massage Therapy school I started working in hospice and have been working with hospice patients the last 12 years along with doing Therapeutic Massage Therapy.
I then discovered Vibrational Sound Therapy and love seeing the difference in people after they get done with a session. I am now continuing my journey to offer people more with the amazing benefits of Vibrational Sound Therapy.
