2020 has seen its fair share of historic events. For a majority of us, these events of been extremely overwhelming and stressful. January started with the Australian bushfires, followed by a global pandemic being officially announced by WHO in March, gigantic locust swarms invading East Africa in May, Murder Hornets arriving to North America, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, Uyghur concentration camps in China, the Rohingya crisis, to the Black Lives Matter movement going global, and so much more!

To ensure we can do this effectively, we are inviting new faces to create more, diverse content on the Reset Zone app.
Today, we are proud to introduce Joanna Grace, and a new healing technique called “Sound Healing”. Sound Healing is a new and incredibly beneficial concept for many. What is it? How is it beneficial? How does it work? To better understand Sound Healing, we have invited Joanna Grace to share some of her insightful knowledge and experience with us.
Sound Healing is the intentional use of sound to shift emotions and energy. You can think of how you might have a different music playlist for working out versus commuting to a job or a separate playlist for hosting a party. Sound Healing is the input of sound for shifting your emotions. You can have a session with a Sound Healer or create some of your own sounds and music to uplift your energy.
Sound Healing is beneficial for many people because it bypasses the thoughts they have about how they are feeling. Most people experiencing Sound Healing exclaim gratitude about how they were able to get out of their heads and absorb the sounds without thinking. Scientific research shares that unpleasant emotions themselves are short-lived. It’s the thoughts that we attach to the emotions that can get us stuck in the unwanted feelings we want to escape from. And the more we think about how we feel does not necessarily shift the emotion at all! Intentional sound delivered by an empathetic practitioner can help you shift difficult emotions without any need for you to explain in words what is troubling you. You can simply sit back, relax and absorb the sounds to release the stress.
I discovered Sound Healing because I was looking for a way to combine my passions of musical performance, emotional intelligence and mental health. I learned about how music can shift emotions from studying and playing music since childhood. When I started teaching piano and horn lessons to younger students, I realized how I could influence their emotional expression by giving them choices of certain music to play. I credit the Sound Reiki Institute for learning how to turn on and off my empathetic switch. I also studied healing sounds with the renowned Sound Healer Jonathan Goldman.
Sound Healing has helped me safely express and shift my emotions basically every day! My clients have reported huge breakthroughs in releasing physical pain that had an emotional component, gaining clarity around difficult situations and understanding how their energy is affected and influenced by the people they spend time with.
What comes to mind is one of the earliest private sessions I provided in 2013. My client came to the appointment with a sore throat and admitted he almost didn’t come because of it. But, since he arrived, we proceeded with the session. What emerged from our time together was that he was holding tension in his throat because earlier that day, at work, a customer had yelled at him. He wasn’t able to yell back and consequently held onto that discomfort in the form of a sore throat. Through the customized Sound Healing and connecting with his energy, his sore throat completely dissipated. This is what he wrote about it:
“I was very stressed after a long day at work and developed a pain in my throat. I thought that Sound Reiki would help relieve my stress but was skeptical that it would replace everyday medicine in curing my sore throat. In my session with Joanna I felt something shifting and the stress clearing as she did Sound Reiki. To my amazement the same thing happened with my throat. I couldn’t believe my sore throat was gone! I felt relaxed and it made me come back.” M.A.
What’s great about Sound Healing is that you don’t need to identify or explain why you’re not feeling 100%. It is helpful for me to have some indication of ideally how you wish to feel, but there is no need to have a lengthy verbal exchange. With your permission, I connect with your energy and intuitively guide the customized sound just for you. I’ve witnessed clients connect to deep-rooted pain from years ago and release it in just one session. I’ve also seen clients who, after our work together, were able to attract the heightened energy that they hadn’t felt in a long time. Most people like some sort of music and sound, and it helps them in some way. For people that like sound as a way to release stress, Sound Healing is a great tool!
