Certified Sound Healing Practitioner
About Sound Healing
Quantum physics tells us that everything is a vibrating energy,
and just as a musical instrument falls out of tune,
we also can fall out of tune.
Our bodies have a pulse, rhythm and vibratory signature of health and wellbeing. Over time, life situations can cause imbalances in our energy fields. Stress, negativity and trauma can prevent a healthy flow of energy. An easy example is to notice how breath flows (or doesn’t) during stressful situations. Often breath becomes shallow and fast, heart rate rises and perhaps we get a headache or tension in the body. This is a physical manifestation of blocked energy. Sometimes we suppress our emotions, stifle a good cry or don’t express our feelings truthfully. This is an example of blocked emotional or mental energy.
This blocked energy becomes stored in our system and just as a beaver builds a dam in a river, we build our own dam, and free flowing energy, breath, blood, thought, etc., becomes slowed or fully blocked. This occurrence first shows up in the energy field around the body, and later can manifest as illness in the physical body.
Sound healing therapy helps us shift from a lower vibrational frequency (negative energy, stress, anger, fear, dis-ease) to a higher one. We are reminded of our perfect tuning at the cellular level, creating harmony that radiates through the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

About This Tradition
This tradition was brought to the US by master teacher Suren Shrestha, who grew up in Nepal and spent much of his life learning and experiencing the different healing traditions of his ancestors, shamans and healers. He established the Atma Buti School for Sound and Vibrational Healing in Boulder, CO. Specific protocols are used to address different healing needs, while also offering balance and deep relaxation.
The hand-hammered singing bowls are from the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, fashioned in a tradition that has been passed down through the ages. They are made of a special seven-metal alloy of gold, silver, iron, mercury, tin, copper, and lead. Each metal represents one of the seven chakras and the seven heavenly bodies in our solar system. The craftsmen who hand-hammer the bowls chant into them during the process to infuse the bowls with healing intention.

Group and Individual Sessions
What to expect in a session
Clients lie on a soft cushion or massage table surrounded by the bowls, choose an intention, and begin to relax. Vibration surrounds the client as the bowls are softly rung in specific protocols determined by the client’s needs. Each client experiences relaxation and re-balancing while receiving soothing vibrational energy from the bowls. Additional techniques, such as warm water therapy, bowl placement on the body, soft chanting, Reiki and use of the BioMat may also be incorporated into the session. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Sessions are approximately one hour in length.
