FAQs

What Should I Know Before Booking a Session at SoSubtle?

A session at So Subtle is not a replacement therapy for any medical treatment you may be undergoing.

All energy equilibrations at So Subtle are unique to your circumstances and are a complement to your already existing health routine.

If you are under the care of a medical doctor or psychotherapist I would like to work with them side by side.

I urge you to seek appropriate care for your mind and body.

By booking a session @ So Subtle you are agreeing with the website disclaimer.

Do You Offer Group Sessions?

Currently, I offer one-on-one and couples nervous system sound equilibration sessions.

Being in an individual setting means you have real-time support. The pace of each session is tailored to your nervous system and needs.

I also offer small group painting workshops – Exploring Through Mandala Healing Art.

What Benefits Do Your Recipients Report?

  • Increased sense of calm, well-being, and a sense that all is right with the world – despite what’s being played on the media.
  • Reduction in physical and emotional pain.
  • Deeper and more restful sleep.
  • More harmonious home environment.
  • Some describe it as the “ liberation of the soul”.
  • Many, report heightened awareness and acceptance of life circumstances.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of sessions depends on the emotional rather than the physical complexity of the condition.

Time will vary from individual to individual.

The recovery and process are incredibly personal!

Do You Provide Support in Between Sound Sessions?

We are all at different stages in life and some will require more assistance than others. For individuals needing additional support, I offer in-person and/or over-the-phone Integration support.

If you see a therapist this is extremely important to utilize their professional help and I strongly recommend you get as much support as you can during difficult times.

Who are Your Clients?

Curious, genuine, and willing!

Are You a Licensed Medical Specialist?

No. I am a healing arts practitioner – integration companion. My work is rooted in an instinctive and rational process.

What is Integration Companion?

One who facilitates a safe space for someone going through the integration of a particularly difficult life circumstance.

What Qualifications Do You Have to Facilitate Sound Sessions?

I hold certificates and training in Sound Therapy and Life Coaching, and over 25 years of independent studies of philosophy, psychology, religion, occult, and many other systems.

My background encompasses personal internal battles and the ability to face, understand, and overcome them with the help of sound equilibration and self-inquiry.

Do you work with Cancer, Autism, Parkinson’s, PTSD, etc.?

I work with individuals’ energy imbalances.

Please Do Not disregard medical assistance if that’s what you need and require!

Are There Side Effects After Sound and Energy Sessions?

Following any particularly in-depth energy-balancing session, some may experience physical detox symptoms 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.

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

Can Sound and Energy Sessions Conflict with the Medications I am Currently On?

Your energetic field modulates with each session. Some clients report that the medications they are on becoming too strong, in some cases very early into the sound therapy.

I am not a medical professional nor licensed to advise you on your medication regulation.

Let your medical provider know you are undergoing complementary therapy and want to monitor your medications.

Hydration before and after each session – is essential!

What are your spiritual beliefs and how do they relate to the work you do?

I see Universal Wisdom – in Everything and Everyone!

I don’t subscribe to any one particular theology or anyone’s religious books and systems. I exercise my freethought.

Even though I never suggest my ideas to anyone, my work and my life always reflect these views.

I defend and support what is natural and provided freely to us all… Innate Guidance within!

Have you ever seen a deer, bird, or squirrel stressing about which of 4,200+ gods to worship??? 😕 I couldn’t find one!

My goal here at So Subtle is not to tell you what you should or should not believe but to communicate, empower, and propose you challenge your conditioning and reawaken the Strength that lies dormant within You!

How to Prepare For My First Session?

Hydrate your body well before and after your sessions!

Wear comfortable clothing preferably without any zippers, buttons, or belts.

A T-shirt, yoga pants, joggers, or sweatpants are perfect for these sessions.

The more comfortable you are the more receptive your body will be.

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, and wear or bring a pair of socks for your comfort.

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

Emotions and traumatic events are stored in our bones and tissue, and sound can free up stored stress. Hydration and grounding are key here! Water will help escort out the released stress.

Be sure to schedule time for yourself after each session. If you can, take some time after your appointment to walk outside or get a cup of your favorite drink and just be.

Stretching moves the lymph and encourages the body to release.

I recommend in between and after each session, you gently stretch your body and ground yourself. A 20-30 min Epsom salt bath – can help with grounding and prevent uncomfortable detox symptoms.

Journal, draw, paint, sing, dance, do a random act of kindness, be gentle with yourself, allow emotions to surface, and don’t judge yourself, regardless of how you need to process.

If you feel you need additional assistance in between your sessions I offer Integration support over the phone or in person.

If you are under the care of a medical professional/therapist seek their support.

Can I meet with You Before Reserving My First Session?

I offer over-the-phone consultations.

I dedicate up to 30 min for our visit in my schedule.

Please respect our time together and come prepared with your pending questions.

What is So Subtle Cancelation Policy?

So Subtle Healing Arts Studio operates on a “by Appointment Only” basis.

Please know that I value our time together! When you set up an appointment with me, I hold and dedicate time to focus solely on you, as well as invest time in advance to prepare for our visit. This allows me to come to our meeting prepared and to give you the best possible service.

To offset some of my losses when last-minute cancelation happens So Subtle has a 48-business-hour cancellation policy. Weekends and holidays are excluded from this time.

A cancelation Fee of $60 will be applied if a sound session/integration appointment is canceled within 48 business hours. For Small Group Gatherings cancelation Fee of $20 per person.

I understand emergencies happen and you might need to cancel or reschedule.

You can cancel or reschedule your sound session through the confirmation link in the email or text message you have received upon initial reservation or by calling me or texting @ 916-936-3787.

Please allow up to 7 days for the refund to be processed and applied to the card you have used to pay, minus the 48-hour cancelation fees.

Thank you for your understanding and your support.
