Greetings fellow massage therapists!
I've got a Sonic Attunement Table made by inventor/carpenter, Leo Palombo that I do bodywork on. It's got 50 piano strings tuned to the same note on the under-bellie which vibrate via the table's resonating chamber just like a guitar, only much sturdier to handle the weight of a client. I use it to help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system depending on the state of the client at any given moment (usually a little at the beginning and end of a session because it provides great overall before and after sensory feedback for the client as well). Having studied Somatic Expressive Arts with Jamie McHugh and sacred vocal music from around the world via Siliva Nakkach, I'll also incorporate singing which transports people to wonderful places in their healing.
Does anybody incorporate work similar to this into their sessions and/or have a table like mine? I'd love to meet folks in our field doing similar work and have some kind of conference here at our school, ASIS Massage Education in Clarkdale, AZ.
Peace to you...
