Sound Bath Program
In a sound bath we work to bring the body and mind to a state of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. The vibrations of the instruments harmonize with the energetic body and work to release dis-harmony and dis-ease that we hold from traumatic events and high levels of toxicity of the modern lifestyle. Sound bath sessions incorporate intention setting, meditation, and the use of crystal bowls and other vibrational therapy instruments such as tuning forks and gongs to create the perfect environment for you to relax, release, and heal. Attendees will be laying down for the duration of the session, no movement is involved. Expect to leave with a sense of pease and calm. People often relate the experience to "floating on a cloud".
These sessions are held on a wooden deck that is raised off the ground, creating an unique experience where the wood beneath you vibrates along with the instruments so you really feel the vibrations move through the body more then a regular session in a studio with a concrete floor.
Steve is our lead Sound Healer here at Riffs. He plays with a unique style blending the soothing powers of the crystal bowls with the power of multiple planetary gongs into an experience that will help you find a place of deep relaxation and clarity. Attendees often speak of receiving messages they need to here, answers to their questions, or a release of something they've been holding onto as they healing vibrations move through the body. Steve has a background in music so his playing style mixes his knowledge of music theory and his intuition in reading the energy of the attendees and providing the vibrations they need. Each session is unique and personal to the people who share the space.
Private sessions are available with Steve, please see pricing below and use the contact form to make a booking. Instruction is available as well for those interested in learned to play the bowls or conduct their own sound baths.

What are crystal bowls?
Our bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to about 4000 degrees in a centrifugal mold. Knock-off bowls, as commonly sold for reduced prices are made of less pure materials at much lower heat, drastically reducing the healing properties of the bowls!
They are available in clear or frosted bowls in a variety of sizes, ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter. The bowls emit a powerful, pure resonance. The larger bowls are much more resonant, with the tone lingering longer, simply because of the size and amount of crystal. The clear bowls, somewhat more expensive, are more readily available in smaller sizes.
The size of the bowl does not necessarily determine its note, although the larger bowls sound lower octaves and notes. Each bowl is tested with digital technology to identify its sound. One will have a sense of which tone "feels" most congruent with individual needs or desires. The notes, C, D, E, F, G, A, B correspond with one’s energy centers or chakras.
Some bowls harmonize with other bowls, and when both are played simultaneously, the effect is exquisite and synergistic. We encourage buying bowls in harmonic sets; ask us to help you find the perfect combination!
