ABOUT THE ARTIST

Amber Arnold is a Sound Healer certified by the International Academy of Sound Healing, a Reiki Practitioner, Folx Medicine Maker, Ritual and Sacred Ceremony Curator, with various trainings in a wide variety of healing modalities ranging from Embodied Movement, Somatics, Reiki, Vibrational Therapy, and more. Born in Somerville Massachusetts, Amber lived throughout the state of Massachusetts with her mother who is an artist and therapist, and her father who is a musician. Amber spent part of her childhood in Nashville, Tennessee where she was fully immersed in the music scene. Her first experience with the healing power of sound was while learning to play the violin as a child. She attended the Community College of Vermont to study business, and eventually found herself exploring various healing modalities that supported her passion for bringing collective healing to people in her community through vibrational therapy, plant medicine, and cultural somatic practices. Amber draws on intuition and deep-rooted wisdom from her ancestral lineage to bring a multi-dimensional healing approach to those with whom she works.

Now based in Brattleboro, Vermont, Amber is the founder of Sacred Vibrations Sound Healing. She joins the Clemmons Family Farm in the Fall of 2019 as an artist-in-residence to use her healing arts for creative placemaking and build a multicultural community on one of the rare African-American owned farms in Vermont.



WHAT IS SOUND HEALING?

The human body vibrates at healthy and unhealthy frequencies. Sound healing helps to restore low + heavy vibrations of energy in the body to balanced frequencies. During a sound bath carefully tuned singing bowls and other healing instruments are played in concert, while participants lie comfortably, allowing the sounds to wash over them, creating a shortcut to deep meditation. Specific tones are used to sync brainwaves and cause a shift in the vibrational frequency of the cells in the human body. These vibrations help the left brain and right brain synchronize and rebalance quickly and simultaneously.

Generally speaking, 30 minutes to 1-hour of sound healing per week (via sound bath or private sound healing sessions) can bring you the same relaxed healing experience as hours of daily meditation. Sound healing has been used for thousands of years for many different reasons and in many different ways. You may have heard or experienced going to the doctor to remove a kidney stone by blasting it with ultrasound. By matching the frequency of diseased and imbalanced cells in the body and raising that frequency, sound creates an environment in which diseased cells are unable to function. Sound re-patterns the vibration of these cells, and allows them to vibrate at their naturally healthy frequency with regular sound healing sessions.
