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.
Cupping Therapy may be integrated into a bodywork session or offered as a separate service. It is the ancient healing method of creating a vacuum on the skin with a special cup which provides detoxification, increase of blood flow, circulation and vital energy, reduction of stagnation, pain and inflammation, powerful lymphatic drainage, loosening of adhesions and connective tissue.
Types of cups used for individualized sessions may include EarthSpa, Fire Cups, Kanghzu Biomagnetic Cups, EarthSpa Bells, Baguanfa Silicone Cups, Haci Biomagnetic Cups and the Belletazze Facial Cups.
Ambient Sound Therapy + Performance
In an Ambient Sound Therapy PRIVATE or GROUP session, you will experience the vibrational resonance and harmonics of Gongs, Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, voice, 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
Alters brainwaves by inducing alpha-theta states associated with healing and deep relaxation
Synchronizes and balances the vibratory frequencies and rhythms within the physical body and energy centers (chakras)
Creates a sense of balance, peacefulness, and well-being
Opens the door to greater creativity, vision, and clarity
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.

Quantum Soul Path Healing
The Quantum Field, also known as the Akasha or Akashic Records, holds the imprint and information of all things throughout all time. This celestial library is contained in the energy vibrations of the universe, and is within and around us. It records and holds the energetic imprint of all thoughts, actions, emotions, and experiences of humankind that has occurred since the beginning of time. Accessing your personal Akashic Records offers your Soul’s perspective on the challenges that you are facing in life, and assists one in clearing attachment to negative influences and beliefs, and recognizing the truth of who you are and your life purpose!
In a Quantum Soul Path session, an Akashic Portal is opened with your permission utilizing a powerful prayer invocation given expressly for this purpose by the Angels, which illuminates all aspects of your life both physical and nonphysical — past, present, future, material, immaterial. As a direct conduit for Source, Phyllis works with the ancient and graphic language of symbology, energetic frequencies and sound, to provide healing in any context throughout all time, space, place, and dimension, relative to your present life journey. Session includes illumination of key reference points, energetic healing and prescriptive vocal transmissions sung and spoken in her Angelical (Adamic) Language, containing encoded light, frequency, and information for healing and transformation on a cellular, energetic, and soul level.
Intuitive Energy Healing
Intuitive Energy Healing is about bringing you back into a state of flow, creating space and a level of balance, where the body is innately able to heal itself! Sessions are focused upon clearing stagnant and blocked energy, releasing or altering negative or nonconducive energy patterns, thought forms, and attachments, and stabilizing energetic systems within the body. Each session is a personalized and specific process for each client based on ones energetic patterns, thoughts, frequencies and beliefs, the specifc 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 cocreative process.
Phyllis is a practicing Sage Medicine Woman and Intuitive Energy Healer with a profound level of communication with Source and her nonphysical Guides, to positively impact the lives of self and others. For many years she studied within the Peruvian, South African, and Native American traditions, before focusing on the teachings and esoteric wisdom of the Toltecs through Xicoco Shamanic Arts.
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.
Phyllis has reached Level 5 of the Aka Dua, a quantum level healing and consciousness technology and offers private healing sessions, training workshops, and Aka Dua Level 1 - 3 Transmissions and Attunements.

Light Scroll Realignment
The sacred act of having your Light Scroll read, initiates a recalibration of your Souls true path and purpose for this lifetime. Setting into motion your true path; or assisting in setting to rights, points of deviation or distortion in your trajectory towards alignment with truth and purpose. The contractual agreement contained within one’s Light Scroll originates with Source, and was set into force upon your entrance into this world. It’s content remains fluid and evolutionary when you are willing to remain open to the enfoldment of its loving embrace, and the unfoldment of the life both you and Source planned for you. It resides outside of the experience of time and space, and is connected with your divine essence within the clear light - our true nature and home.
As with a Quantum Soul Path Healing, an Akashic Portal is opened in order to access your Light Scroll. In addition, there may be energetic clearing that needs to take place before your Light Scroll can be accessed. A Light Scroll Realignment can be added to a Quantum Soul Path Reading at a discounted rate.
I have been granted the means to retrieve and read the Light Scrolls of individuals whom make the conscious choice to reveal its contents. The emanation of radiant divine light and frequency is a deeply transformative and healing experience, even before the scroll is opened and I begin to read!
