Lomilomi Lapa' au Hawaiian Healing Bodywork
Lomilomi Lapa'au is a traditional Hawaiian healing medicine - an energy-shifting touch therapy that can beneficially transform your mind, body, emotions and life! It is a form of bodywork that holds the premise that the trinity of body, mind, and spirit, participates together in our evolution and healing. The work creates a temple - a sacred and safe space where consciousness and the emotional body can connect. Communication and support for the emotional body is found in the breath, and the blending of breath and gratitude fuel the process of healing.
The tools of Lomilomi include:
Creating space in the body using gravity and breath
Bone Washing to clear the periosteum or skin of the bone to release memory of physical and emotional pain, and oscillation of bone, fascia and soft tissue
Laulima - the laying on of hands
HA - Breath which directs stagnation out of the body
Manifesting healing through preparation, perceiving, and procreating
Being in the present moment which is the space for creating knowledge.
Phyllis trained in Hawaii, HI, and is a lineage holder of Lomilomi Lapa'au through the Halau of Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim and Sila Lehua Bray Jim.

Soul Path Sitting:
Spiritual Wisdom + Illumination For Your Soul's Journey
A Soul Path Sitting opens a pathway of communication with Archangels, Angels, Guides, and Loved Ones, and the Quantum Field of intelligent light, knowledge and information, utilizing a powerful Vibratory Key given to me for this purpose.
I call this a Sitting, because the act of simply sitting in this open flow of unlimited light and consciousness, begins a process of alteration and healing, before we begin working and the real magic begins to happen. This field of information, also known as the Akasha, holds the energetic imprint of all thoughts, actions, emotions, and experiences of humankind that has occurred throughout all time and dimensions: past, present, and our unlimited future.
Accessing the vibrations of the Akasha provides answers to your questions, by illuminating your Soul’s perspective on the challenges that you are facing in the moment, and provides assistance in clearing negative influences and beliefs, unproductive thought patterns and habits, and provides deeper clarity and needed energetic healing. The Akasha also contains the highest available outcome for one's personal evolution, which means is that it holds information that can help us align with our Divine origins, and gain a clear understanding of who we really are.
As the cause of your challenges are identified, I facilitate healing, clearing, and release using prescriptive vocal transmissions sung and spoken in my Angelical Light Language, containing encoded light, frequency, and information for transformation on a cellular, energetic, and soul level.
Sessions may include:
Ancestral & Past Life Healing
Messages from Source, Loved Ones & Guides
Release of Past Trauma
Energetic Healing and Sound Alchemy
Chakra Clearing and Balancing
Spiritual Initiations & Guidance
Body Awakened - Intuitive Energy Healing:
Awakening Body Intelligence
Intuitive Energy Healing is about bringing you back into a state of flow, creating space, and a state of balance and relaxation so that the body is able to heal itself!
Working within your energetic field within and surrounding your physical body, I look for what may be blocking or hindering your body's innate ability to heal. I then facilitate the removal or release of stagnant and blocked energy, negative energy patterns, thought forms, emotional fears and attachments, and stabilize your energetic centers (Chakras). Each session is a personalized and specific process for each client based on ones energetic patterns, thoughts, frequencies and beliefs, the specific challenges one is experiencing, and the desired outcome of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing meant for you in the moment. Healing is an individualized and co-creative process.
I am a Shaman Seer Sage focused in the Toltec tradition of Shamanism & Magick, who has studied many different energy healing modalities, technologies, and Shamanic traditions. My gifts as a facilitator of healing include the ability to hear, see and feel the distorted biological and physiological frequencies within your energetic field and body--even at a remote distance--that are representative of physical, emotional and spiritually oriented trauma, illness, and dis-ease. I receive information and guidance from Source to shift, alter, and transform these distorted frequencies on a multidimensional level, to facilitate your body's own ability to heal itself.
The Toltecs were a civilization living in Southern Mexico thousands of years ago, that were known as the men and women of knowledge — teachers of spirituality, sciences, and the arts. Every individual life was considered a work of art; a conscious, living creation, always in a dynamic state of evolution. The Toltecs created vital teachings and practices for the purpose of developing full consciousness and spiritual awakening, in addition to a range of practices found within traditional energy medicine and shamanic practices. Toltec Shamanism is the powerful path of the seeker, offering tools for self-examination, recognition of our true essence, and reconnection with Source!

Body Attuned - Private Sessions + Group Experiences
Private: Quantum Sound Alchemy
Quantum Sound Alchemy is a prescriptive and individualized sound alchemy transmission, where you are enveloped within a transformative weaving of Angelical Light Language, which may be accompanied by sacred and indigenous instruments. The frequencies of sound and light work within the electromagnetic field of the body; flowing through the tissues and bones, and on a cellular level as the wavelengths of sound are transported on the fluids of the body in resonant, vibratory patterns. Sessions are ONLINE and recorded for your reference.
Quantum Sound Alchemy sessions are facilitated Online using special technology for quality sound, and recorded. Recordings are downloaded and emailed after the close of the session. BOOK HERE >
Group: Ambient Sound Therapy + Performance
In an Ambient Sound Therapy GROUP session, you will experience the weaving and vibrational resonance and harmonics of Gongs, Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, angelic vocals, and other sacred and indigenous instruments as therapeutic and transformational tools.Through skillful means, a certified Sound Therapist facilitates the synchronization of the body and mind to promote healing, shifts in consciousness, and life change.
The basic principle of Ambient Sound Therapy is that everything is in a state of vibration. Not only our external environment which we filter through our bodies, or what we ingest into our bodies such as fluids, foods and chemicals, but within the physical body — we have the individual vibratory resonances and rhythms of our organs, bones, connective tissues, cells, blood flow, heart beat, pulse, nervous system, and so forth. When the body is incapable of filtering properly for any number of reasons, and the flow of energy becomes stuck, stopped, or stagnant, this creates an environment for injury, illness, and disease. Ambient Sound Therapy works within the electromagnetic field of the body, flowing through the tissues and bones, and on a cellular level as the wavelengths of sound are transported on the fluids of the body in resonate, vibratory patterns.
BENEFITS OF SOUND THERAPY:
Release of endorphins and supports healthy immune system function
Relief of stress, anxiety, and fatigue
Works within the electromagnetic field, and the body on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual
Assists in the shifting and release of energies/frequencies associated with disease, illness, limiting beliefs and patterns

Phyllis is an Advanced Master Sound Therapist and Bonpo Shang practitioner who has studied the therapeutic, meditative, and mystical use of sound with notable teachers and mentors, including completion of an extensive program of study with Mitch Nur, Phd.

Live Performance + Recording
When I perform it is for me an inner experience, and often for many participants, they are deeply moved beyond the inner realm to a more visceral, inspirational and healing response. It is not about just listening with your ears, but with the entirety of your being to be moved within the moment into a space or place where you have a deeper perception and understanding of who you are, and the beauty of the moment. I sing to heal and change the lives of those who will listen, as I've sung to heal self. And I sing to heal and uplift the world.
All performances are divinely inspired and orchestrated in the moment as the vocals, sounds and frequencies energetically flow through me. Each performance is different and cannot be repeated, unless of course, it has been recorded. I use multiple instruments including, gongs, singing bowls, monochord, Shruti Box, various drums, rattles, chimes and bells.
I am available to perform at public and private events, multi-media artist collaborations, and recording.
