In progressive alternative health and research circles, something called ‘autophagy’ has been receiving a LOT of attention lately. Autophagy is like your body’s own internal recycling program, helping it eliminate toxins and reuse critical nutrients, such as protein, vitamins and minerals. Autophagy is a hot topic because it’s one the most powerful ways to slow (and even reverse) the aging process. Benefits include improved mood, more youthful appearance, more energy, reduced inflammation, enhanced immunity and so much more.
Next, we have my very special guest Jamie Bechtold who is an expert in the healing arts, creator of toneation and founder of the Soundbath Center and Reiki Center in Los Angeles. Jamie shares her personal journey and what led her towards sound healing. Listen in as she shares this technique and how it can deepen the effects of the massage, helping clients enter into a state of relaxation much quicker than without it.
About Jamie Bechtold
Jamie Bechtold (formerly Jamie Ford) has been passionate about sound and movement since she was very young. She grew up competing nationally in gymnastics. Her interest in the healing arts started when she in her early 20’s – she began working with her dreams and read every book she could on dreams, psychic abilities, and energy healing.
Jamie heard a gong for the first time in a yoga class in 2000. The teacher played a gong during savasana and she was in love! She went to classes just to hear the gong, and found it’s sound helped her relax and connect more with what she wanted to do with her life. At that time Jamie was working as a Biologist, and was not feeling fulfilled in her work. That yoga class with the gong affected her deeply and eventually moved her on a new path..one of healing and sound.
In 2005 Jamie entered the healing arts field through massage. She soon added sound healing in the form of tuning forks into her sessions. She found sound deepened the effects of the massage and helped clients enter into a state of relaxation much quicker than without it. In 2004 she met Kat Lyons, who was teaching a tuning fork workshop, and began to study sound more intensely. She studied Egyptian Mysteries with Kat, which was very sound healing focused. In 2005 Jamie bought her first gong and crystal bowl and has been playing for her clients and groups ever since.
In 2012 Jamie began teaching sound healing and in 2015 opened The Soundbath Center (formerly known as The Sound Space). Her intention was to open a space dedicated to Soundbaths and sound healing, and to offer clients different types of soundbath experiences.
