Sound Healing

What is Sound Healing? Sound healing is just what it sounds like; healing the mind-body-spirit with sound. There are many techniques and mediums which have been used in various cultures and spiritual frameworks throughout the world, including chanting, singing bowls, shamanic drumming, liturgical works, and more.


Shelby uses many modes and methods for sound healing including live violin performance, tuning forks, chanting, and singing bowl as a means for encouraging heightened meditative and relaxing states for healing to take place. Shelby received training for tuning forks from Sound Healing Academy which he integrates with concepts of classical and folk theories and performance traditions. Shelby also draws from healing concepts applied as a Substance Abuse Counselor and coursework in Lesley University's psychology Bachelor's program (BA, 2021). 


Shelby has trained in the Alexander Technique at the Heifetz International Music Institute, The Longy School of Music, and privately with master teacher Ruth Kilroy and for several years with certified AT instructor Mariel Brewster. Shelby utilizes this technique in performance and in his approach to string instrument pedagogy. It is also beneficial when communicating how and why sound and movement heal body, mind, and spirit during sound healing sessions.


Sound healing session times are usually within the range of 45 to 90 minutes. A sliding scale fee is used to determine hourly rate.
