Suite Vibrations offers ‘healing, peace and balance’Written by Candice L. Harrison | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Ashima Rae, a spiritual healer and facilitator, said a “Sound Wave Bed” inspired her decision to open Suite Vibrations Sound Healing Studio.
The earthy “spiritual gift” store, located inside of the Davis Building, 135 N. Michigan St., prides itself on providing products that are from fair trade organizations, good for the environment and produced by local artists.
Rae said she felt a profound need to help others bring balance to their lives through sound. On a trip to Arizona, Rae got a glimpse of “The Sound Wave Bed” developed by Boehme Music of Germany. It boasts a 40-string monochord tuned to three octaves of the same note. From there, a business was born.
Rae said she “created a space where people can come in and touch and feel everything; they can play the drum, feel the vibration of the singing bowl … it’s a hands-on place.”
The Sound Wave Bed is the main source of healing within the studio. It is available to view, but remains untouched unless healing therapy is in progress.
The Sound Wave Bed treatment consists of sitting or reclining in comfort, allowing the vibrations of the bed to radiate through the body, creating healing, relaxation, peace and the feeling of being centered, Rae said.
The singing bowl is another point of interest for Suite Vibration patrons. These brass bowls were hammered and made in Tibet between 300-500 years ago. They create a tone that connects to the user, creating a healthy vibration that stimulates the “chakra,” or energy centers in the body.
Besides the healing element of Suite Vibrations, customers can purchase various drums, glass art, wall art, home accessories, incense, greeting cards, transformative CDs empowering children’s books and other items. Rae said “the joy of Suite Vibrations is that you cannot only receive sound healing, but play, purchase and take home items!”
A second facet of Rae’s vision, the “Suite Lightworker’s Co-operative” (SLC), was initially slated to happen in her storage space. Her mission statement is, “our mission is to support your mission.”
The co-op provides an affordable space for healers, educators and various workshop facilitators to rent by the day or hour to provide services to the community. Amy Hamilton, a registered nurse, crystalline consciousness technique (CCT) certified teacher and advanced energy master is a “proud member of the SLC.” Hamilton utilizes the co-op for therapy sessions and said, “the co-op is an affordable space that Ashima has created so that we can rent healing space for our clients, events and classes. Because it’s affordable, professional space, we are able to build our business.”
The co-op has attracted massage therapists, yoga providers, various workshops, belly dancing lessons, CCT and other classes. Rae said the “potential is endless” for entities that can utilize the co-op.
Suite Vibrations opened officially Aug. 4. Beginning Sept. 13, “Movie Monday” will launch its first showing of spiritual movies with positive messages. There will also be a gallery reading Sept. 15 with medium John Turski.
Rae said she welcomes various vendors, service providers and healers who are interested in utilizing the co-op for business purposes or special events.
