In over three decades working as a natural health practitioner, I have built up a wide network, and am lucky enough to know many highly skilled and knowledgeable complementary health therapists, trained in a broad range of disciplines. One of these people is the fabulous Helen O’Brien, an ARCH-registered colon hydrotherapist, like I am.
I first met Helen at one of the ARCH annual conferences many years ago and we clicked instantly. We share a similar, very northern sense of humour, a strong work ethic, feel very passionate about what we do, with a vision to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing.
As well as running a very busy colon hydrotherapy practice, Helen is also trained in sound healing and runs regular sound bath sessions, a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body. The sound waves are generated by bells, chimes, gongs or, as Helen uses, alchemy crystal singing bowls.
My video chat with the very engaging Helen is well worth a watch! We talk about Helen’s career path which has taken her from a colon hydrotherapist to a sound healing practitioner and soon a shamanic healer. She also runs retreats that focus on self-healing, releasing deep, emotional trauma and supporting your personal transformation. You can find out more about Helen on her website.
We chat about all sorts of topics in the video, including:
- What are sound bowls?
- Where do they come from?
- How can they be used?
- What is their history?
- What happens during a sound bath?
- Can sound bowls help people reduce their stress levels?
- Can sound bowls help get rid of negative energy in buildings?
- Can sound bowls help people who have digestive issues?
I hope you enjoy watching the video – there’s certainly lots to learn from it!
