A little about me and the work I offer
I come from a family where sound, music, and song were an ever present and part of rebuilding our family culture in a foreign land.
As a young child, my grandmother, a deeply spiritual woman, spent much time humming spirituals as she worked around the house with me at her apron skirts. She occasionally spoke in tongues (spirit language) at church and was the personification of a true matriarch.
My mother became a jazz singer and singing teacher at a young age. She used her voice to entertain for much of her adult life.
Personally, I was always looking for meaning, depth, and spiritual purpose, searching for my own place and way in the world.
My sound remained internalized until I began to practice a form of Buddhism where I chanted daily for hours, learning about the value of vibrational energy.
Children have been a big part of my life teaching, singing, improvising, soothing and finding the many sounds within for balance and restoration.
It has taken me almost 50 years to discover the sounds living within me that my body longs to express for wholeness to be true.
It is my desire to open, listen and allow my sound to be of service in custom made sound massage sessions.
Sound has been a healing art form since ancient times, in almost all ethnic cultures. Sound has the ability to affect the vibrant energetic and cellular movement in humans, plants, animals and matter. I then came to a place where I wanted to now more about the human body, hence the introduction of massage, quality touch and the manipulation of soft tissue.
Together massage and sound have much to offer.
Fortunately, I have had many teachers in many forms to assist me in beginning to remember what is mine.
I continue to grow with inspiration into claiming all of my birthrites.

I follow no fixed ideology and strive to be respectful, authentic, courageous and honest in all my interactions with others.
***Velda has such a wonderful and healing presence. She approaches her sound healing with clarity and calm. My sound healing massage felt incredibly nurturing and relaxing; tapping into what my body needed and resonating within me. Velda is amazing at knowing where to press and how hard without causing pain. I had recently suffered an acute injury and I was at first nervous that she would push, pull, or twist something that would cause pain, after the first 5 minutes my body trusted it could relax knowing this wouldn't happen. The experience brings these words to mind Serenity, Delight, Nurture.**** Nelia
