Sound Therapy Treatments
The gong is very simple. It is an inter-vibratory system. It is the sound of creation itself. Nothing more, nothing less. One who plays the gong plays the universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the word” ~ by Yogi Bhajan Ph.D.
Sound Therapy treatments are 1 Hour appointments and personalised to suit the individual ~ working intuitively to sense what the body is needing through the sound.
Every Sound Therapy Treatment will always include an initial consultation upon arrival and finish with silence & integration of the treatment to ensure plenty of time for grounding to complete & seal the energy flow.
Our Octave Monochord sound therapy bed, is a highly specialised instrument which you lie down on to receive the treatment.
Underneath the Monochord bed are 30 overtone strings & 30 bass strings, tuned to ‘D’ the Sacral Chakra (Hara) ~ which brings the fullness of our being into harmony through the sound being played through the bed. These strings are like that of a harp instrument, & when they are played underneath the body, the powerful healing sounds resonate through the physical body, aiding the body to replenish itself to its natural cellular vibration & flow. It is a profoundly relaxing experience.
What to expect
You will be invited to lie down on the Octave Monochord Sound therapy bed & made comfortable & warm. The treatment is free of any conversation chat, so you can drop deeply into the sound ~ no thinking required ~ some people even fall asleep it’s so relaxing.
You can simply close your eyes, relax & drop deeply into the sound meditation experience throughout.
Some of the sounds you may experience are:
* Monochord Overtones ~ (played through the body from beneath the sound bed)
* Healing Drumming ~ (to ground & centre)
* Tibetan Singing Bowls ~ (sounded in the Aura & sometimes placed directly on the body)
* Tuning Forks ~ (sounded in the Aura & sometimes placed directly on the body)
* Gong ~ (as & when appropriate)
* Sound Voice Toning ~ (primordial sounds toning the body)
Every Sound Treatment will be different, according to what the body might be needing each time you visit ~ so this is tailored to you & what is intuitively beneficial.

“In the middle of beautiful Northamptonshire countryside I found a little haven of peace. Tucked away at the bottom of a magical garden, a winding path lit with atmospheric lights, is Edd’s Sound Therapy cabin. The scent of the wooden cabin itself is instantly comforting and as I look around me I take in an array of beautiful sound therapy instruments. Amazing gongs, sound bowls, drums and the item I’ve come specifically to experience – The Octave Monochord Couch.
At first glance it looks like a normal therapy couch but I quickly notice some key differences. Underneath the wooden frame are 60 strings, which when played, Edd explains, will resonate up through the couch in to my body creating a deep sense of relaxation and healing.
I have experienced sound therapy before, using gongs and sound bowls and I have found them very relaxing so I’m keen to get settled and experience this special couch. Edd introduces me to all the instruments he will be using, checking my comfort levels with the different sounds and explaining how the session will go. He is extremely passionate about sound as a therapy and his love of the instruments he uses is clear to see.
We start with some gentle drumming on a drum of Edd’s own making. There is something so primal about it it’s like a coming home. I feel myself relaxing my muscles one by one, my breathing deepens as I sink back in to the couch.
The first note of the Octave Monochord Couch is truly surprising! The sound is like a mid toned harp, very soothing, but the real experience is in the sound resonating up through the couch itself. I can feel the vibration moving through my body like gentle waves. It’s incredibly soft and subtle but profound at the same time. And with it comes an intense feeling of relaxation.
I honestly can’t tell you how long I was there, I was so deeply relaxed I could have been there for an hour, a day, or even a week! Time stood still as the sound washed over me. At the end of the session Edd gently suggested I wiggle my fingers and toes before I slowly sat up, which I was very grateful for as by this point I was so relaxed I’d forgotten I had a body!
Walking home it felt like I’d had a reset, a relaxation so deep that I felt truly refreshed and restored. If you’ve experienced sound therapy before then you’ll love the Octave Monochord couch – it really takes the experience to another level, like you are inside the sound itself, rather than the sound building around you.
If you’ve never experienced sound therapy before I would highly recommend giving it a go – it is an experience like no other.
Edd is incredibly knowledgeable and is sure to put you at ease.” ~ Caroline
