Philippe's primary healing instruments are Crystal Singing Bowls, Himalayan Singing Bowls, untempered, "true scale" Tuning Forks, and Gongs. Originally from Paris, Philippe Pascal Garnier discovered the healing properties of sound 15 years ago during his quest to cease vertigo brought on by Ménière’s disease. Not wanting to undergo the operation doctors offered, he turned to alternative practitioners. During the 15 days he spent with the indigenous of the Upper Amazon in Peru working with spiritual healers, he experienced a transformation that not only altered the course of his disease, but of his life. He pursued intensive training in Energy Healing and Sound Therapy. Philippe has been initiated into sacred ceremony and practice in a variety of Native traditions. His sound healing knowledge comes in part from living year long within an Apache tribe in New Mexico, as well as working extensively with the Amazonian curanderos, training in techniques that facilitate healing of the soul and body.
