I had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks on Whidbey Island in Washington State this fall.

While there I had a wildly unique healing experience. Barb Nichols at Whidbey Island Sound Massage blends Sound & Vibrational Therapy with Lomi Lomi Massage techniques at her studio overlooking the sound.

Lomi Lomi is an ancient Hawaiian restorative healing modality that uses the art of compassionate touch.

Barb worked with her hands and forearms with long and sweeping movements, much like long, rolling waves traveling along the body. With soothing nature sounds in the background and mesmerizing tones of Tibetan Singing Bowls carefully placed on the body, I was transported into a vibrational vortex of sound and relaxation.

Sound healing therapy uses aspects of music to improve your physical and emotional health and well-being.

Vibroacoustic therapy uses audible sound vibrations imbedded in recliners, mattresses, and special mats to transmit music and sound vibrations directly to the body. Barb’s massage table is a water bed table with speakers fitted inside. This allowed the vibrations of the music to penetrate right into my chakras creating a deep vibrational healing experience. I left Whidbey Island massage and headed down to the beach to watch the sunset, my body vibrating at a much higher level. I had been cleansed by the sound, the vibration and now by the water as the sun melted into the horizon.

We offer a number of Sound Healing experiences in our Community Salt Cave.

Our January 19th session with Billy is SOLD OUT but you may want to catch Jeff Fisher’s Handpan Concert on January 24th at 6:00 pm. Keep an eye on our events calendar for our monthly sound healing events, or book a Private Cave session and create your own sound healing experience.
