AY^AM resident sound healer Jaclyn DeSantis provides unique and fluid sound experiences for groups, ceremonies, collaborations, private healings, and hospice seva.
Jaclyn has been creating experimental music since 1999 but discovered resonant sound alchemy in 2007 and has been developing a unique sonic healing journey since. 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.

Jessi offers reiki healing sessions on an infrared amethyst biomat. Sound healing instruments, crystals, and essential oils are also offered in each session. She works with a pendulum to locate blockages along the chakra system, and with the help of her guides and yours, she gently removes these blockages and gives your whole body and surrounding energy field a “tune-up”. Jessi believes reiki is a beautiful anecdote for these current times. In tune with the shifting paradigm, she feels it to be a softer, more feminine approach to healing that can have a profound effect on our whole being: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
