FAQs 

Below are the questions for you to ponder before committing to your first session with me.

These might help you determine if the sound therapy approach is suitable for you.


What should I know before booking a session?

Sessions at So Subtle are Not a Typical Sound Bath Experience.

Each Sound Healing Therapy session is detailed specifically for your individual needs by incorporating sound frequency, light frequency, Bioacoustics, and Bioenergy combined.

I meet you with the sound at the stage of healing you are at right now.

Each session is built upon each other as your body releases more “energy blocks” and is ready for a new level of release.

A session at So Subtle is not a replacement therapy for any professional therapy that you may be undergoing. It is a compliment to your already existing wellness routine.

I am unable to diagnose, prescribe, treat, or cure any illnesses that require medical or psychiatric attention.

Can So Subtle Therapy conflict with the Medications I am currently on?

Your energetic field modulates with each sound therapy session. Some clients report that the medications they are taking become too strong.

Learn about the symptoms of an overdose of your particular medication. Your medical doctor can help you with that.

Potentially some medications will need to be adjusted in dosage, in some cases very early into the sound+energy therapy. We will go over this in more detail on our first visit.

Let your medical provider know that you are undergoing alternative therapy and would like to monitor your meds.

I am not a medical professional and I am not able to guide or advise you on your medication regulation.

Hydrate before and after each session – it is especially important!

One who helps another(one) accelerate her/his awareness, which leads to greater levels of understanding, liberation, and self-empowerment.

As your Self Healing companion, my job is to assist you to see grander possibilities and unlock the door to an abundance of natural gifts within you.

This process is achieved through multiple modalities and instruments.

Yes. Shock and/or trauma are best to be addressed energetically while the child is young, to prevent unnecessary suffering. Please schedule a complimentary call to go over the details.

The number of sessions depends on the emotional rather than the physical complexity of the condition. After just one session you might find that enough emotional charge has been lifted and the body can promptly start to heal itself. For more deep-rooted or chronic imbalances a number of sessions are required.  

One of the biggest advantages of sound/energy sessions is that people respond very quickly to just a few sessions. It is one of the fastest healing techniques I have ever experienced or known.

Emotional and to some degree spiritual shifts are normally felt instantly.

You should expect distress levels to change instantly but acute conditions may require more healing time. Even if multiple sessions are required you should anticipate feeling different from the first session onward.

Healing is a process and it requires patience, love, and compassion. One should never rush it and be kind to oneself.

  • Increased sense of calm and well-being along with a sense that all is right with the world. 
  • Reduction in physical and emotional pain
  • Deeper and more restful sleep
  • More harmonious home environment
  • Some refer to it as the “ liberation of the soul”
  • Heightened awareness and acceptance of life circumstances
  • Personal transformation – improved relationships

They come from all walks of life and are diverse but share many commonalities. Some, might be new to this unconventional approach but feel a certain curiosity about learning and experiencing sound and energy healing. 

Other clients already have experience and knowledge with the healing arts and seek accelerated personal evolution and healing, or they might be healers or have the desire to become one and are interested in increasing their ability to heal by integrating sound and subtle energy practices. 

It’s always best to supplement your energy as a daily practice at home by any means suitable for you. Most of my clients gravitate to using Tuning Forks as an addition to their already established Yoga, Chigong, and/or Meditation practices.

I personally feel that starting with a tuning fork is the most suitable option for most individuals. A tuning fork is a more economical, versatile, and compact tool which makes it ideal for those who travel a lot.

Some choose Singing bowls or other similar instruments. The choice is always yours.

If you choose to incorporate sound frequency as your daily practice I can proved you with some guidance on how to utilize the tools you have.

If you choose not to invest in any tools, other options are available, and we can explore them together during your visit.

But I do strongly believe personal healing expediates only when we intentionally and consciously get engaged with the process. That’s why tools can be of such great service.

Distant healing is a term that refers to an energy healing session where the practitioner and the client are not in the same room together.

Some So Subtle sessions can be conducted over a distance, completely without verbal communication.

While it may seem unusual that a practitioner can help someone so profoundly over a distance, consider that vibrational energy healing does not involve any physical contact or direct connection between practitioner and client even during an in-person session.

Distance/remote sessions are just as, if not more effective for some people, as in-person sessions. Some clients feel more receptive to the session and prefer being completely alone during this healing process. In the realm of the spirit, there is no time and space.  Through concentrated prayer, we will connect with the Creator of All That Is, and the work is directly facilitated.  

Many clients report sensing the distance healing session as if they were with me in person.

Following any particularly in-depth energy balancing session, you may experience symptoms of physical detox throughout the coming days, especially if the physical body is in poor energetic condition. This will lessen with each passing day and with each following session. This is a normal response that can vary in intensity.  

These symptoms could be avoided or greatly reduced by staying hydrated prior to and after the session, walking outside barefoot, moving your body-especially stretching your body, and/or taking a 20 -30 min Epsom salt bath or foot soak after each therapy session.

For your sound healing sessions wear comfortable clothing without any zippers, buttons, or belts. A T-shirt, yoga pants, joggers, or sweatpants are perfect for these sessions. All sessions are done entirely clothed lying down on the massage table or sitting down in the chair. You will be asked to remove your shoes, so please wear or bring a pair of socks for your comfort if you like.

Drink plenty of water before your session as water holds sound-conductive properties. To help the body eliminate toxins released during the therapy, hydrating with sufficient water after appointments is highly beneficial.

Be sure to schedule time for yourself after your sessions. If you can, take time after your appointment and go for a walk outside or get a cup of your favorite drink and just be. Be gentle with yourself, allow emotions to surface, and don’t judge yourself, regardless of how you need to process.

Go into your first Sound Therapy sessions with an open mind—Trust your gut and don’t be afraid to sit with some discomfort, especially initially. After all sound and energy therapy is a process of unveiling parts of yourself that possibly have been neglected for a very long period of time. And this uncovering can feel uncomfortable to some individuals, especially in the beginning.

I see One God – Universal Wisdom – in everything and everyone. I don’t subscribe to any one religion, but my work always reflects my beliefs.

If this doesn’t resonate with you, that’s okay. There are plenty of other sound therapists out there who will be a better fit for you. But if you’re open to it, I think my work can really help you.

I grew up Christian, but I always had questions. Why do we have to put our trust in just one book? Why wasn’t I seeing the love, peace, and understanding that I was promised? So, when I was 18, I left the Baptist congregation.

But even though I left Christianity, I was still searching – looking in other religions and ancient texts for answers. That ended when I realized that I was the one creating the world I was experiencing. Once I saw the power inside myself, I stopped searching for external answers.


I am thrilled to be able to share my life passion and purpose with you! – Irina
