BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you're trying to find some inner peace, sound therapy may be just what the doctor ordered.
Aly Raymer is a fitness and wellness practitioner in South Boston, who also happens to be a certified sound healer. In her sound therapy sessions, she uses crystal singing bowls to play music and sounds that are supposed to help relieve stress and help clear one's mind.
Raymer told WBZ's James Rojas that sound healing has been around for thousands of years and was used by indigenous tribes to practice healing and medicine. She said she hopes to do the same for her clients.
"I want to help people just slow down and chill out," Raymer said. "I think everyone is moving at such a fast pace and this is a really tangible and accessible way to do so. All you have to do is receive."
During the sessions, she uses a small mallet to strike the different crystal bowls, which come in different sizes based on the sounds they produce. She said her bowls are tuned to different frequencies that allow her to channel different energies that a client gives off.
"I call these the Bugatti of bowls because they are the highest quality crystal singing bowls or crystal alchemy bowls that you can buy," Raymer said. "What I love about this is that it completely relaxes your body and your brain."
Raymer does sound healing on demand and for private events.
