VST Certification Course
Sound Garden instructors will guide you through all phases of a typical Sound Therapy session from initial client consultation through the massage procedure and aftercare conversation. You will learn the importance of communication and how to use feedback techniques to get the most out the session for both you and your client. Instruction will be given in both basic and advanced techniques using Himalayan singing bowls, Tingsha chimes, and gongs. The course covers both the practical and business side of providing Sound Therapy treatments. Your success will rely not only on the quality of the service you provide, but also on the relationship you build with your client.
Sound Therapy is not meant to diagnose or cure any diseases. Our modality is a method of deep relaxation that can relieve stress and improve emotional well-being. The applied use of sound and intention can be a pathway to the meditative state that is both therapeutic and enjoyable.
The Sound Therapy training course provides background information on the nature of sound as well as the theories behind sound therapy, the history of singing bowls, and ethical practices. All these subjects are important to understanding your role. The main portion of the learning, however, involves intensive hands-on training on how to use the bowls both on and off the body. In addition, the associated materials and tools will give you the support you need to practice with confidence.
