“Powerful and restorative”
“Laura is truly an earth angel! Her space is calming and welcoming, her presence is compassionate and soothing, and her practice is powerful and restorative. It is clear that she has answered the call to heal. Laura is so talented and so eager to share her gifts with the world. Whenever I spend time with Laura, my body, my mind, and my spirit thank me. It is always such a blessing to let Laura work her magic on me.”
“A deep physical reset”
“The whole experience is a deep physical reset. From the feel in the room as you walk in, to the gentle warmup, to the way the gong speaks, and on to the way the crystal bowls resonate. It all fits together and resonates my whole being in a way that cannot be explained or replicated.
The sounds Laura makes set me straight every time, and I feel the vibrations all the way to my core. You just have to feel it to believe it.”
“Laura’s pure heart comes through the vibrations of the gong, bowls or whatever modality she’s connecting with…. and healing happens.”
Tibetan Singing Bowls
Himalayan singing bowls, more commonly known as Tibetan singing bowls, can be played directly on and around the body. Historians believe that metal working artisans perfected the techniques for making Tibetan singing bowls nearly 2,500 years ago at the time of Buddha’s birth. The benefits of this gentle modality are many. The sound and vibration of Tibetan singing bowls helps to restore balance, dissipate negative energy, and bring harmony to the body, mind and spirit.
The bowls Laura uses are made of a special 7 metal alloy of gold, silver, iron, mercury, tin, copper, and lead. Each of the sacred metals is aligned with the 7 creative planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn) and with the 7 chakras of our body (Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, Root).
“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think
in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”

Gongs are said to contain all the sounds of the Universe. They heal whatever needs to be healed bringing lasting change to the nervous system, emotional centers, body and both conscious and unconscious thought processes. They are appropriate for a variety of situations/events such as meditation practice, healing, birthdays, weddings, housewarmings/clearings, and the honoring of loved ones passed. They are said to remove the fear of death and “clinging” to earthplane and people/things.
“The gong is here to turn off the reptilian gene of selfishness and bring forth the gene for loving kindness.” – Don Conreaux
