Our typical program for each session:
One of our favourite songs: Garden Song by David Millet

Therapeutic singing (toning) and movement as taught by the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST)
Voice Bath Recording
Listen to the voice-bath with good quality headphones, in a relaxed position – sitting or lying with your eyes closed. The purpose of it is to get into a deep relaxation quickly. The deep long tones will relax your body, the higher tones and overtones will relax your mind. The therapeutic percussion sequence will bring you back to a normal state of mind. Enjoy the silence after the voice bath. Stretch gently and drink a glass of water. Hopefully, you will feel refreshed.
