Our voice is one of the most extraordinary instruments on the planet.  With this, we can become maestros at facilitating our own health, healing, and happiness.

You know that uplifting, calming feeling you may notice when you are humming?  That’s no accident.  In the book “The Humming Effect” by Jonathan Goldman and Andi Goldman, they write that “Humming is one of the simplest and yet most profound sounds we can make.  If you have a voice and can speak, you can hum”. 

Research has shown humming to be much more than a self-soothing sound: it affects us on a physical level, reducing stress, inducing calmness, and enhancing sleep as well as lowering heart rate and blood pressure and producing powerful neurochemicals such as oxytocin, the ‘love’ hormone and the compound Nitric Oxide (NO), a neural transmitter that is fundamental to our health and well-being.  A compromise in NO release is a precursor to many diseases i.e. heart disease, ALS, Alzheimer’s, depression, digestive disorders, etc.  

Humming balances the nervous system just as a tuning fork does.  No gadgets or expensive technology is required.  You do not need to be a musician or singer to benefit from sound healing practices.  Knowledge about yourself from within, attained through experiences and practice, is self empowering.

  We hope this encourages you to join us for the opportunity to play with humming, and experience creating more of those uplifting feelings from inside of yourself.  

At the heart of your health and healing are your body’s energies. 

At the heart of your body’s energies is vibration. 

The Humming Effect teaches you how to use your capacity to hum to create vibrations that promote health, healing, and higher consciousness
