Building an Energy Healing Tool Box

How are you doing? How is your family?

I truly hope you are finding healthy ways to cope with the challenges presented during these energy shifts on Earth. It continues to be critical that we devote time and energy to care for ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually, to better care for our family and our community.

As you might know, since March I have been seeing clients for in-person sessions. I have been quite busy and am very happy to return doing what I love. Doing what I love involves sharing with you, all that I have learned and continue to learn over the years: ancient wisdom in Energy Medicine.


The acceptance of what is happening in the world around us will require from ourselves great strength and resilience, so we can imprint that in our energy field. We are energy beings, and our vibration greatly affects those around us.

“When we learn how to become resilient, we learn how to embrace the beautifully broad spectrum of the human experience” Jaeda Dewalt

Starting in September I will see clients only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays will be days saved for classes, workshops, guided meditation, and sound baths. If you want to schedule your regular sessions, make sure to send me a message in advance as short notice requests will be difficult to accommodate.

I am glad to share that our studio will soon be carrying books and other items for sale, for the physical, spiritual, and emotional enrichment of our community.

September 7th will be our first gathering for a guided meditation for healing, and sound bath. There will be a limit of 6 people during the session, so if you would like to save your spot, please send me a message. It will be at 5:30 pm and would last about 45 mins.

There is much coming at the studion in the next few months, regardless of what is happening in the world outside, we will always find a way to connect with our community, and diligently share old and new techniques for your Healing Tool Box.

Today I will share with you a healing technique to open energy blockages in your head and torso. It will also help to relieve headaches, neck and shoulder pain: Use either hand to massage the area on both sides of C7 (Cervical vertebrae 7), which is the protruding bone toward the top of your spine at the height of the top of your shoulders. Squeeze the skin and hold it tightly for 3 seconds. Release the muscle and then hold it tightly again for 3 seconds and let go. Repeat the squeeze and release 9 times.


“C7 is one of the most important energy points in your body. It connects your head and your torso and it is often the first area where energy flow gets constricted.” Master Chunyi Lin

Be well and I hope to see you soon!


Why Healing With Sounds?

Why healing with sounds? Because we are vibrational beings, with energy pulsating in and all around us.

According to Jonathan Goldman, director of the Sound Healers Association,  “people have been using mantras and others sounds for various types of healing and consciousness shifts for thousands of years in different traditions”. Shamans have used drumming, rattling, chanting, instrumental music and other sounds techniques as its primary tools for healing.

OM tuning forks

I have been using in my practice, for several years now, sounds in combination with body work. What I see the majority of my clients experience, specially after certain tuning forks are played around the head, is a great sense of calmness, clarity and harmony( as long as there is silence and focus during the experience).

I recently acquired a hand hammered Tibetan singing bowl from Nepal. The sound and vibration are very powerful! Hope you get to experience it soon and give me your feedback.

Pineal Gland Tuning Fork used in my practice

The ancient mystics have told us that everything is in a state of vibration, every organ, every bone, every tissue, every system of the body is creating a sound. Modern science is now in agreement with that…finally! What to do when we have this information?

When I was a little girl, growing up in Brazil, I loved dancing to the samba, the beats of the drums made me feel amazing.  I could feel the vibration on the floor coming up in my body through the soles of my feet (dancing barefoot has always been my favorite!) and after a few minutes whatever tension, anxiety and fears I felt, would be gone from my body and my being, even if temporarily. Many times it felt like I didn’t even have a body, I was part of all things and all things were  part of me.

Until today I use dancing to the drums to create vibration in my body and reestablish more harmony and peace in my inner being, especially before giving any massage and energy treatment.

“Modern Science is finally recognizing that energy constitutes the blueprint of the physical body.Meanwhile, the energetic vibration of sound can be used to change that blueprint in ways that foster health and well being.” Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine.

If we accept that every part of the body has its specific vibration, specific frequency, we can imagine that an organ in the body that is in a state of disharmony might work more like an instrument* out of tune, right?

What if we could tune up the body as a whole, so each player, each part of the body could “play” again, in harmony with all the other players and a sense of well being be reestablished in the body?

Mitchell Gaynor, M.D. is a clinical professor of medicine at Weill-Cornell Medical College and founder of Gaynor Integrative Oncology in New York City. He is also the author of “The Healing Power of Sound: recovery from Life-Threatening Illness Using Sound, Voice and Music”. Dr. Gaynor tells that his success in treating patients with various forms of cancer has improved markedly since he began having his patients chant mantras while listening to the sound of singing bowls.

It is critical to mention that as each part of the body has its frequency so does the food we feed our bodies.

The “movement” pro organic food educates us on the importance of consuming more living foods, it also urges us to consume less animal products(if any at all, since animals are also vibrating to the level of care they are subjected to) and less processed foods. This shift in consciousness came as a direct result of the huge number of diseases of the body and mind in mankind, and also due the increasing destruction and consequent imbalance of Mother Nature and all living beings on Earth.

Tools like tuning forks, singing bowls, crystals (that are found in great abundance on Earth for every vibration of our bodies) and even a well calibrated human body that touches us can influence the whole vibration of our bodies, working as a “tuning fork”, that is what we, healers, intend to do at every session.

Our embodied presence on Earth directly impacts every life. The harmony or lack of in the “orchestra of living beings” played in our planet can be changed by each and everyone of us, the musicians. We are elevating together the consciousness of our planet as each one of us chooses to tune up the body, mind and soul.
