SOUND BATH USING TIBETAN SINGING BOWLS
Sound healing is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing known to humans. It uses the power of sound to restore one's mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance. The harmonic vibrations from the instruments have a deep penetrating effect on the receiver, promoting health and well-being.
The sound waves from the Singing Bowl entrain the brain to move into the deeper Alpha, Theta and Delta brain wave frequencies, inducing a deep meditative and peaceful state. As human beings are comprised mainly of water, these vibrations can deeply penetrate our bodies, moving through our tissues and organs. The sound resonates directly into our cellular memory releasing blockages and creating a profound sense of peace and relaxation. It’s a pathway to becoming meditative, without knowing how to meditate.

Abbie - LMT, Reiki Level 1 Certified
Abbie's commitment to wellness, self-care, and self-improvement was established at a fairly young age. The road that lead them to their current outlook on such things has been a winding one, and heavily shaped by their efforts to understand their own place in the world and how best to function in it.
Abbie has sought direction in a variety of disciplines – religion, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, exercise and health-consciousness. While each of these things has played its own important role in their growth, massage therapy is the first of such disciplines that they've become truly rooted in. It is one of the few things that Abbie genuinely believes everybody can derive some benefit from.
As a therapist, Abbie takes great pride and pleasure in being a part of others’ journeys of self-care and healing. They believe that each individual has their own unique way of being in the world. Through massage, Abbie wishes to connect with, encourage, and teach people who resonate with this thinking.
Tending to a varying blend of Swedish, Myofascial, and Trigger Point techniques; no two massages Abbie gives are the same, just as no two people are the same. Their number one goal for every session is to create space for a whole person to just be. People often find their work to be deeply relaxing and comforting.
Abbie graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy. As a part of the same program, they have been attuned in Level 1 Reiki. Abbie's trajectory for continued learning includes deepening their understanding of Myofascial work, and learning how best to incorporate energy work and intentionality into their practice.
Outside of massage therapy, Abbie spends as much time as possible with friends and loved ones. A collector of hobbies, but regularly enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons, cooking, and creating music.
Preanka feels that a healer is not someone that you go to for cure, a healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal yourself. Her journey from the known to the unknown started 11 years back, in India, when she got initiated into the path of yoga and meditation by her guru, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.
Subsequently, she started exploring alternative therapies and ways of holistic living. This exploration, and her tryst with destiny, led her to discover the magic of singing bowls. She was naturally drawn to the vibrations and considers herself fortunate to get certified with the International academy of sound healing in India. After moving to the US, she completed her training with master Don Conreaux and has been sharing the magic of the sacred bowls since 2015, in both India and USA.
In recorded history, singing bowl therapies dates to the 12th century and has been used for meditation and rituals in Tibetan culture. The metal bowls produce a deep penetrating sound that is used to relax and move through the blockages in the body. It also gives us an opportunity to enter the world of silence and the silence within us.
Besides sound healing, Preanka can be found doing many many many things such as traveling, collecting crystals, reading, hiking, biking, volunteering, exploring raw/natural food recipes in her kitchen.
