Functional Sound Therapy is a deeply therapeutic individual session that brings synergy & coherence to the mind & body as a whole. Functional Sound Therapy is not just listening to peaceful sounds and feeling good, rather it's the application of intentional sounds and frequencies to produce a specific response of vitality, based on scientific knowledge on how frequencies impact the function, capacity and health of our brain and body.

The initial consultation; Kylie will gather information from the participants health questionnaire along with discussing the participants personal conditions, goals and capabilities to formulate a personalised consultation plan.
The sound therapy sessions; The participant just lays down or sits comfortably and relaxes. The participant can talk if they want to and this can vary upon individual needs each session.
Kylie applies specifically tuned tuning forks gently upon acupressure points and meridians of the body (via a modality called Acutonics®) based on individual needs & symptoms. This is combined with the natural tones of instruments such as crystal bowls, gongs and vocal tones which calibrate the mind & body into flow.
The brain wave state and body's functionality are enhanced as per the scientific references shared below. Participants gain a feeling of both relaxed yet energised, with a heightened awareness of their mind & body in balance.
Further benefits including those listed in the introduction above can be felt immediately and can continue to have a positive effects for days after the session which compounds with repeated sessions.

IMPACTS ON THE BRAIN:
Sound frequencies directly impact our brain wave state and thus our emotions and cognitive function. The particular sound frequencies and natural overtones used in Functional Sound Therapy are those that influence the brain to;
Shift from Beta state, which is home to states of anxiety, stress, worry, anger, fear and linked to a weak immune systems and switch to;
Alpha state where a calmer mind supports problem solving, memory capacity & creativity.
Further relaxation of the brain activity into Theta & Delta states activates the parasympathetic system which strengthens the immune system, restores bodily systems & rejuvenates cellular health.
The effect of sound therapy changing the brain wave state can take effect within 2 to 10 minutes, continues through the whole session and has long term positive affects after the session.
IMPACT ON THE BODY:
Stress, worry, fear, anxiety, depression, trauma, chronic fatigue will keep our bodies fight or flight system humming in the background – ready and waiting to react and ‘save’ the person from either perceived or real threats in life. We can’t rest, heal or rejuvenate in this state where inflammation, adrenalin & cortisol is consistently too high.
Therapeutic sounds over-ride the fight or flight and move the body into a meditative state where our parasympathetic system is engaged and our body can rest and repair.
When certain Hertz frequencies are applied to the body with the tuning forks, the subtle vibrations are sent through the bodies meridian lines to directly influence healthy flow of energy & blood, bring revitalising energy to the organs and glands, and support the body’s own healing & repair mechanisms. It is just like a guitar or piano gets a tune up - this is a tune up for our body promoting healthy function on all levels.
Certain frequencies on certain acupressure points can also help reduce symptoms of pain, reduce inflammation, regulate the heart, support the immune system and more.
Regular sessions extend the long term affects and promote the body’s capacity to adjust it’s base line to a more optimal balance in health, function & vitality.
