Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl
Crystal Ion Therapy
Reiki Energy Healing
I offer Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Relaxation Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Massage and Reiki Fusion Bodywork along with breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, increase immune response & circulation, prevent injury and restore a sense of safety within the MindBody connection. These modalities ease chronic pain caused by neural pathways formed between the mind and body during various life experiences.
Please see information on other services offered if you are interested in healing rather than managing your chronic pain. It may be neuroplastic pain created by a dysregulated nervous system and can be reversed without the use of tissue manipulation or structural bodywork.
Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl Sound Therapy, Biofield Tuning, Reiki Energy Healing, MindBody Awareness and Mindfulness are highly effective in the reversal of chronic pain. The pain you are feeling is not always due to a structural issue or a past injury. New research shows that in many cases chronic pain that lasts longer than the natural healing time is the result of a dysregulated nervous system response to various past, present and future perceived dangers or threats in life. Also referred to as MindBody Symptoms*

When we experience fear, stress, anxiety, depression or increased demands and pressures our energy becomes dispersed and weak. Sound is a way to return to wholeness and vitality.
Come resonate, relax and recalibrate in the healing sound waves created by Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls. These bowls produce vibroacoustic (vibration and sound combined to influence physiology) frequencies that travel through the skin and into the body at a cellular level, clearing out stagnation to make space for healing.
Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls are infused with earth elements such as gemstones, minerals, and metals. Melding these earth elements with pure quartz infuses each bowl with energetic properties that are delivered to the body through vibration and sound.
Similar to the way a tuning fork adjusts an instrument to its perfect pitch, the Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls align our bodies into perfect harmony. The earth elements anchor our core and ground us to the earth. We are of the earth, and the sound and vibration from these bowls connect us to our roots.
Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl Sound Therapy opens, clears and balances all systems in the mind and body on a cellular level while energizing the human biofield. This creates an optimal environment to heal on all levels. Within minutes you will slip into a blissful state of receptivity and relaxation. A crystal frequency sound healing session is probably like nothing you’ve ever tried before. It’s truly musical medicine that heals the mind and body while activating and awakening the soul!
The body is made up of energy and is a network of vibrational fields vibrating at different frequencies. It is believed that when the body is out of rhythm, disease and disharmony are the result. Therefore, the vibrational sound produced by crystal bowls can address and correct the imbalances & blockages within our energy field which in turn correct the physical issues you may be suffering from.
The notes of the crystal singing bowls are tuned to the specific frequencies found within the human body and when the sound waves move through the room and through us, they entrain our cells to move in different directions and at different speeds, in rhythm with the sound waves. When we listen to these vibrational sound waves, they are able to touch our bodies on a molecular and crystalline level. This entrains our brain and puts us in harmony with the sound, nature and the Universe.
The sound penetrates deep into our cells and rebalances them through oscillation and resonance. Studies have proven that sound has a direct impact on our mental processes, nervous system, digestive system, circulatory system and so much more. Alignment with these crystal tones is one of the most dynamic forms of sound healing found today and a highly effective alternative medicine approach to many chronic issues.
You may also book this offering as an Add-On to any service I offer.
Biofield Tuning is based on the premise that the human biofield (energy or electromagnetic field that surrounds and permeates our bodies) is deeply connected with our conscious and subconscious mind and memories. Physical, mental and emotional disorders are perceived as "dissonance" or frequencies out of harmony in our biofield. This tuning fork sound therapy method is able to find and tune these imbalances back into harmony with our bodies and therefore alleviate the corresponding physical, mental and emotional symptoms.
Our bodies are comprised of mainly liquid, so when the tuning forks are played around the body and applied to the body, the gentle sound and vibration produce deeply healing sound waves which move through our tissues creating a full body "sound massage".
This relaxing and highly effective therapeutic method using healing frequencies from tuning forks calms and resets the nervous system. Once activated these tuning forks send vibration and sound into the body to calm the nervous system and bring balance and harmony to all systems of the body. This method alone is highly effective in alleviating pain. Even more effective when used around the body to auto tune the mind and body back to the natural frequency we are all meant to vibrate at. The enhanced harmony between the mind and body creates a deep sense of balance and safety providing ultimate healing on a physical, mental and soul level.
The Tuning Forks rich in resonance and vibration connect and support the body's natural frequencies. The sound waves from the forks vibrate and send calming sound into the body and along neural pathways affecting our human physiology. Repetitive frequencies are sent into the electromagnetic field around the body, where it is thought that our past memories and emotions are held. The tuning forks are able to balance any charged emotions or memories which may be pulling us out of alignment with our higher self; inhibiting our physical, mental and energetic state. By auto tuning (like an instrument) these out of tune blockages to an in tune neutral state, this lost energy leaking our vital life force, can then be brought back to our central energy channel and circulated through the body's electromagnetic biofield. This produces a sense of safety and increases vitality and resilience to life's stressors. The orchestration of sound and vibrational frequencies from the tuning forks and the waves sent out by your body's electromagnetic rhythms all work together to create an environment for ultimate healing.

Method founded by Eileen McKusick
Read below about more specific Biofield Tuning services I offer, including the Adrenal Rhythm Reset, Sonic Meridian Flush and Sacral Stabilization.
Adrenal Rhythm Reset
Adrenal fatigue and adrenal disorder are starting to become an epidemic in our society. The external pressures that we move through everyday often take a toll on our bodies and while taking supplements and eating a vitamin rich diet helps maintain healthy adrenals, it doesn’t have the ability to shift the adrenals back into their natural rhythm like sound and vibrational frequencies from tuning forks do.
Our adrenal glands produce the hormones that aid us as we go through patterns of fight, flight or freeze. When we have a stressful job, an unbalanced relationship, struggle with finances, physical illness or if we are simply too busy, our adrenals will produce too much or too little adrenaline and cortisol.
This leads to symptoms of:
Depression and anxiety
Issues with thyroid
Inability to think clearly, follow instructions clearly or make decisions clearly
Digestive issues and food intolerance’s
Excessive sweating (nervous sweat)
Cravings for caffeine and sugar
In the Biofield Tuning anatomy, there is a specific area in our biofields were we carry the energy of each adrenal gland. Each adrenal gland holds a specific energy and function. The left adrenal regulates physical stressors such a physical pain, physical abuse or having been in a dangerous situation. The right adrenal regulates social stressors such as relationships and work environments.
When the adrenals are in overdrive or underdrive due to stressors, the other energy systems of the body become out of balance. Doing a Biofield Tuning Adrenal Reset helps to harmonize all energy systems so they can work cohesively. It takes a little more time for the body to recalibrate into a harmonic balance after an Adrenal Reset than it does with a standard Biofield Tuning session and some detox effects often occur. Having 1-3 days of downtime to allow the body to rest is highly recommended. Energy levels usually decrease during this recovery phase and then return much stronger than prior to the reset.
It takes an average of 3 Adrenal Reset sessions to shift the adrenals into a balanced rhythm.
Sonic Meridian Flush
The Sonic Meridian Flush is an energetic tuning that involves using specific weighted forks and crystals on the body. This includes tuning on the face, arms, hands, back, legs and feet. The weighted tuning forks are applied to specific acupressure points and along energy meridian lines to dissolve blocks, increase flow and support the body's natural healing abilities. The Sonic Meridian Flush helps to reset and stimulate your life force energetic system. Sometimes the results of using the forks on the face can be very dramatic and immediate. The sound waves deeply relax patterns of "holding" in the facial muscles and stimulate blood and lymph flow.
Some skin types plump up, making the receiver look instantly younger and refreshed.
Compression can happen in any joint causing a lack of flexibility and mobility within the joint. Biofield Tuning is very effective in opening up compression in joints using the frequency and vibration from a weighted tuning fork held on various acupressure points on and around the sacral bone and hips.
Many people have had an injury or pattern of holding which can misalign the sacrum and make it unstable. Sacral instability can lead to low back pain, especially pain that moves from side to side, and can cause a ripple effect of misalignment up and down the body.
Bringing coherence to the field, in that area, creates an energetic stability that allows the sacrum and hips to settle in where they belong. Often tailbones and other bones will spontaneously adjust back into alignment on their own following this type of Biofield Tuning.
This treatment is great to incorporate into any service I offer. Just select it in your intake form during booking or choose the Add-On option.

Total MindBody Relaxation
Receive a session on this mat & soak up subtle pulsed electromagnetic frequencies. These highly therapeutic frequencies mimic those found in nature, like the Earth's frequency of 7.8Hz, to organically activate your body's natural healing power. Infrared heated amethyst and tourmaline imbedded crystals release negative ions creating a deep calm & optimal healing environment. Balance all systems of your mind and body efficiently and holistically while you relax!
Infrared PEMF + Crystal Ion Therapy
This highly therapeutic mat combines powerful healing technologies to create the ultimate recovery tool. PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy sends subtle magnetic energy into the body using various healing frequencies found in nature. These energy waves work with your body’s natural magnetic field to stimulate the natural healing processes of the body. The Infrared heat eases chronic pain, enhances workout recovery, improves sleep and creates total MindBody relaxation and reset.
PEMF uses technology to stimulate and exercise cells to help resolve cellular dysfunction and to support overall wellness. It treats your cells like batteries. It’s common for them to slowly be drained of energy. By the end of a day, your body and mind may feel tired and depleted. That’s where PEMF technology can help. Energy is generated in various healing frequencies and delivered into your cells. This amplifies your natural energy and encourages your body to function and heal more effectively. Also known as low field magnetic stimulation, it uses electromagnetic fields to repair cellular dysfunction which is the root cause of many chronic issues.
The magnetic field created by the mat increases electrolytes and ions. This naturally influences electrical changes on a cellular level and influences cellular metabolism. It works with your body’s own recovery processes to help relieve chronic pain. Best of all, it’s entirely safe.
Ultimately, the human body requires electricity to send signals throughout the body and to your brain. PEMF therapy can effectively realign the electricity in your cells. When a cell is stimulated, it allows positive charges to enter a cell in an open ION channel. The inside of this cell becomes positively charged, which will trigger other electrical currents, turning into pulses. This can positively influence movement, healing, and sending of signals. Any disruption in electrical currents can lead to chronic dysfunction or illness. Pulsed PEMF therapy helps restore this disruption in electrical current to a normal state, which promotes overall wellness.

Hormone production as well as stomach and intestine movement can be increased. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates can be dispersed efficiently.
How does it work? Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy emits electromagnetic waves that mimic natural frequencies found in nature, stimulating and encouraging your body’s natural recovery process. The benefits of PEMF alone are out-of-this-world (literally, astronauts used it to recover from a debilitating space mission), but even more powerful when paired with infrared’s deeply penetrating heat and twenty pounds of healing crystals layered inside the mat, which produce negative ions (think: antioxidants in the air when heated).
PEMF technology mimics the healing vibrations of the Earth through 4 coils imbedded in the mat, enhancing the body’s natural recovery process, reducing inflammation, increasing energy, relieving stress, and promoting deeper sleep and so much more!

Reiki Fusion Bodywork
Release tension within the MindBody connection and heal the soul with this fusion of bodywork and energy healing for deep relaxation and stress relief. This treatment begins with a bodywork modality of your choice to enhance circulation, soften tight muscles and release built up tension. Followed by Reiki Energy Healing, a Japanese form of alternative medicine using a hands-on technique which transfers universal energy in the form of qi(chi) through the practitioner's palms into the body's energetic field. The fusion of universal energy and your own inner energy allows for a shift into a more balanced state of equilibrium and creates a calming, safe environment for physical and emotional healing. It also brings awareness to and helps clear unhealthy, fearful neural pathways formed throughout our lives during injury, stressful experiences and traumatic events. These unnecessary neural pathways keep you stuck in relentless MindBody looping patterns, causing physical & emotional pain and holding you back from true happiness, purpose, love and abundance in life.
You may choose to receive a full session of Reiki Energy Healing. An energy healing technique based on the ancient principle that the attuned Reiki Practitioner is able to channel energy to the client by means of light or no touch. This transfer of healing energy activates the body's natural healing process. In most cases physical pain and discomfort is caused by a manifested neural pathway formed during a stressful past event or by a repressed emotion the system was unable to process during a traumatic experience. Reiki creates an environment of safety making it easier to feel and release these blockages and create new neural pathways to decrease pain and increase a sense of calm and safety in the body. If you have exhausted many physical therapies and are still suffering, this highly effective healing modality is definitely worth a try!*
Reiki Energy Healing
MindBody Awareness & Mindfulness Techniques
Pain and discomfort in the body are not always due to a structural or tissue damage cause. Recent studies on chronic pain have proven this. Often times there is a MindBody component involved. Stress, repressed emotions and fear can create nervous system disruption called neuroplastic pain. This is a real felt pain in the body stemming from a neural pathway from the mind formed during stressful life experiences, injury and/or a traumatic events. Sometimes the neural pathway formed continues to create pain long after the incident and healing of tissue. Most people are told their pain is related to a structural malady or tissue damage, however there are studies that prove that most of these issues do not cause pain. These studies also prove that many people have bulging and herniated discs, rotator cuff tissue damage, bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, even scoliosis and experience no pain. These structural issues are a normal part of aging and don't warrant pain. In most cases, the pain is actually the product of formed neural pathways misfiring from the brain into the body. Stress and fearful thinking exacerbate this pain and keep the pain coming back, sometimes years and decades after the initial onset of pain, traumatic event or injury. Repressed emotions and adverse childhood experiences (ACES) also contribute to these neural pathway patterns.
This customized session includes a combination of education on MindBody symptoms and their purpose in order to reframe your understanding of chronic pain along with mindfulness techniques to start calming your nervous system and release stress and fear around your pain in order to reduce severity of symptoms. Bodywork, Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl Sound Therapy, Biofield Tuning and/or Reiki may also be included to create calm and safety in your nervous system, which is imperative for true healing. This is the next step to take if you're ready to gain energy and power to stop your chronic pain from ruling your life!

Kelly Dodson, LMT
Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner
& Reiki Master
I've been practicing bodywork & energy healing for 13 years and graduated from Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Laguna Hills, California in 2009. I also attended Bodhi Tree Center for Healing Arts in Carson City, Nevada where I was attuned as a Reiki Practitioner and later became attuned as a Reiki Master here in Northern Michigan. As a Sound Therapist, I'm a Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner, a sound balancing modality to calm and recalibrate the nervous system as well as shift subconscious limiting beliefs, founded by Eileen McKusick. In addition, I am a Certified Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl Sound Practitioner with The Sacred Science of Sound, founded by Jeralyn Glass. This is a deeply healing and alchemical modality of sending vibroacoustic sound waves from Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls through the skin and into all systems of the body to open, clear and balance on a cellular level while energizing the human biofield and shifting the mind to relaxed brain wave states. This modality creates an optimal environment for healing on all levels. Lastly, I am a PSYCH-K® Facilitator empowering my clients to live beyond their subconscious limiting beliefs.
I relocated to Northern Michigan from the Eastern Sierras in California where I owned a bodywork practice healing locals, athletes and seasonal clientele. I've also practiced in spas and athletic clubs in the mountain resort town of Mammoth Lakes, California. Being an active snowboarder, hiker and yogi I know how the body can hold tension and pain affecting overall performance. In the past 4 years I have studied and gained a good understanding of how chronic pain is not always due to a structural or tissue damage issue. Often times there is a MindBody component. Stress, repressed emotions and fear can create nervous system disruption called neuroplastic pain. This is a real felt pain in the body stemming from a neural pathway from the mind formed during stressful life experiences, injury and/or a traumatic events. The pathway formed continues to create pain long after the incident and healing of tissue. Most people are told their pain is related to a structural malady or tissue damage, however there are studies that prove these issues do not always cause pain. Many actually have bulging discs, rotator cuff tissue damage, bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, even scoliosis and experience no pain. These structural issues are a normal part of aging and don't warrant pain. In most cases, the pain is actually the product of these formed neural pathways misfiring from the mind into the body. Stress and fearful thinking exacerbate this pain loop and keep the pain coming back, sometimes years after the initial event or injury. This knowledge, along with my Yoga Teacher & Mindfulness Training through YogaWorks Costa Mesa, CA in 2005, took me down a path to explore ways to eradicate this looping action between the mind & body. After an injury, surgery or stressful life event, when pain persists past the body's natural healing process or just pops up out of nowhere, a false alarm pain signal is being misfired into your body through the formed neural pathway and this is the true cause of the chronic pain. It's important to form a sense of safety in your body and move away from fear that your pain is due to a structural misalignment, scar tissue build up or tissue damage, because in most cases its not. The human body is strong and capable of healing on its own. Our minds act as a crutch sometimes and can inhibit the body's natural resilience. Mindfulness exercises as well as calming the nervous system with Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowl Sound Therapy, Biofield Tuning, Reiki and Bodywork help in the process of eradicating these unnecessary neural pathways. When the false alert system from the mind and your fear of the pain is no longer produced by the mind your pain will disappear! This is due to the capability of our mind to change through neuroplasticity. We are all capable of reversing chronic pain patterns if we can understand the MindBody connection, release fear and have a true desire to heal. I have seen my clients alleviate their chronic pain and overcome diagnoses they didn't think were possible to get rid of until they accepted their pain as a MindBody Symptom and started using the simple resources I provided them. If you're ready to let go of chronic debilitating pain, seeking to understand the cause of chronic pain or in need of some stress relief and relaxation, I encourage you to book a session with me. I look forward to helping you find safety, balance & bliss in your mind, body and in life!

“Treat the cause not the effect”
Dr. Edward Bach
I pride myself in creating a comfortable space to receive exceptional bodywork + sound therapy. If you’d like to hear about some of the experiences my clients have had with my work, please read a selection of their testimonials below.
"The only word I can think of to describe my experience with Kelly is magic. I had body work with tuning forks and it was undoubtedly one of the best experiences of my life. I have never had someone take so much time and care of listening to my body’s needs. I cried at the end because I was so moved by the way that she helped my entire being heal and process. Thank you Kelly for doing what you do! You are a true gem to our community!"
'I booked an appointment on the recommendation of a friend and I am glad that I did. The experience I had was beautiful. The biofield tuning was incredible, and Kelly was able to pinpoint important events in my life with astonishing accuracy. There is no way she could have known. I came in with a terrible flare up of my sciatic nerve that was causing the top of my foot to go numb, she used the tuning forks there and over the last few days the improvement I am feeling is profound. I will be telling all of my friends, and people to whom this may be relevant because this kind of healing ripples through the body like waves. I will be going back. Thank you Kelly!!!"
"After several visits the past several weeks, I am convinced that Kelly is simply the best. Reflexology, CBD, relaxation massages have been very helpful time in easing lower back pain, shoulder pain, and sciatica. Kelly’s training credentials, experience, and professionalism set her apart from most/all others."
"I was referred to Kelly by a friend and therefore showed up to my appointment with high expectations. She met and exceeded my expectations! The ambience was relaxing, the heated table was very comfortable and Kelly sent me to outer space with her exceptional skill. She radiates positive energy and established an immediate rapport. She tailored the massage to my requests and provided exactly the experience I was looking for. Thank you Kelly! I'll see you again soon."
"Kelly is incredible. My experience with her in a Reiki Fusion massage was not only therapeutic in body but also in mind. I appreciated that she answered all of my questions and was receptive/intuitive regarding pain I was experiencing. I felt relaxed and comforted in that she really has done her research on the human body and was in tune with what I needed. The space is professional & welcoming, I felt at ease the entire 2 hr session. Thank you Kelly for the work that you do, I look forward to trying out your tuning fork sound & vibration therapy!"
"I felt like a new person! I got a 60 minute massage, scalp massage, and 10 minutes of reiki. It’s the absolute best my neck has felt in months. Kelly was super professional and made me feel very comfortable, especially during these crazy times. I’ve already booked my next session!"
"Kelly you have a very healing touch, and an intuitive nature which combined made for a wonderful, relaxing yet rejuvenating experience. I loved my massage and am looking forward to experiencing Reiki with you."
"I am a huge believer in massage and have been seeking a professional passionate about healing in Northern Michigan. Hands down the best not only in Northern Michigan but of my 27 years of receiving “medical” massages from numerous high quality professionals! Now if only we could clone her!"
