Understanding the importance of sound healing
Sound healing is a highly effective modality for promoting healing and relaxation in the body, and its effects on brain patterns and frequencies make it a powerful tool for promoting overall health and well-being.

Sound healing and the connection to our brain waves to help let go and surrender
Sound healing is a powerful modality that works by leveraging the vibrational and energetic qualities of sound to promote healing and relaxation in the body. One of the key ways that sound healing works is by influencing brain patterns and frequencies.
Research has shown that the human brain responds to different sound frequencies in different ways. For example, lower frequency sounds are associated with deeper states of relaxation and meditation, while higher frequency sounds can stimulate and energize the brain.
During a sound healing session, the client is exposed to a variety of sounds and frequencies, which can help to entrain the brain to a desired state of consciousness. This is achieved through a process known as brainwave entrainment, which occurs when the brain synchronizes its own electrical activity with the rhythmic vibrations of an external stimulus, such as sound.
By entraining the brain to a specific frequency, sound healing can help to promote deep relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and support overall health and well-being. This is achieved through the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the body's "rest and digest" response.
In addition to promoting relaxation and reducing stress, sound healing can also help to balance the energy centers, or chakras, in the body. Each chakra is associated with a different frequency, and sound healing can help to activate and balance these frequencies, promoting a greater sense of harmony and well-being.
A drumming journey is a unique and transformative experience that can help you connect with your body, mind, and spirit in a powerful way. During the journey, Rowena uses a variety of drumming rhythms and techniques to create a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your inner landscape.
The drumming journey begins with an introduction from Rowena, who will guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. You will then be invited to lie down on a comfortable mat or blanket, and to make yourself as comfortable as possible.
Once you are settled, Rowena will begin to play the drum, using a variety of rhythms and techniques to create a soundscape that is tailored to your individual needs and preferences. As the drumming continues, you may find yourself beginning to relax deeply, as the sound and vibration of the drum penetrates your body and mind.
As the journey continues, Rowena may use different types of drumming techniques to help you connect with different parts of your body and spirit and to help your brain to let go. For example, she may use a steady and grounding rhythm to help you connect with the earth, or a more fluid and flowing rhythm to help you connect with your emotions and intuition.
Throughout the journey, you will be encouraged to focus on your breath and to allow yourself to sink deeper and deeper into a state of relaxation and serenity. The sound and vibration of the drum will help to quiet the mind and promote a sense of inner peace and calm.
After the drumming journey is complete, Rowena will guide you through a gentle grounding process, allowing you to slowly return to your waking consciousness. You may feel deeply relaxed and rejuvenated, with a greater sense of clarity and peace.
Drumming journeys are a powerful and transformative experience that can help to bring serenity and inner peace to your life. Whether you are seeking relief from stress and anxiety, or simply looking to deepen your connection with your body and spirit, or even to understand your cycle a drumming journey with Rowena is an experience not to be missed.
