She combines an array of instruments including crystal singing bowls, gongs, hang drum, didgeridoo, along with vocals, to produce alpha and theta brainwave state-inducing overtones for deep relaxation and harmonic alignment. She has studied at the Globe Institute for Sound Healing and is mostly guided by intuition and Spirit.
