A Modern Approach to the Ancient World of Sound Healing: Introducing Altha
If you have been paying attention to recent trends in the wellness space over the years, you may have noticed that sound healing has become an incredibly popular healing modality in the alternative wellness space. Dating back to ancient Greece, this meditative practice has been steadily gaining traction and new sound therapy options seem to be popping up everywhere – especially in the LA area.
New to the SoCal sound healing space is Altha Healing; a team of certified healers dedicated to providing a modern approach to the ancient world of sound therapy. Combining their experience in high-end corporate event planning and their deep interest in wellness, Altha provides a new refined lifestyle component to all of their sound bath experiences.
What is a Sound Bath?
Unfamiliar with sound healing? A sound bath is an immersive sound experience – it is called a “bath” because the sound waves wash over you as you lie down, relax, and enjoy the healing frequencies of a variety of instruments. Some common science-backed benefits of sound healing are deepened state of relaxation, increased focus, reduced stress and anxiety, better sleep quality, and decreased tension in the body.
How Altha Started
While working in the extremely fast-paced luxury automotive industry for almost 2 decades, Altha founder and Chief Healing Officer, Letizia Silvestri, discovered sound healing to cope with the stress from her demanding career. At the height of the pandemic, she decided to rescue her spirited dog, Zen. However, due to a history of abuse Zen exhibited many behavioral problems stemming from anxiety and fear. This inspired Silvestri to introduce Zen to sound healing and after seeing the incredibly positive effect it had on him, Silvestri became a certified sound healer and started to share the healing benefits of sound with her community. Altha represents Silvestri stepping into her true purpose; to share the medicine of sound with the world.
The Altha Mission
Altha states that their mission is to motivate, enlighten, & inspire companies and individuals to prioritize well-being through the transformative power of sound medicine. As Silvestri is no stranger to work burnout and stress, bringing the transformative power of sound healing to busy professionals at fast-paced organizations has been her main focus.
How to Experience Altha
The signature Altha experience provides a multisensorial and fully immersive sound meditation experience for optimal healing and rejuvenation. The experience is catered to each specific client depending on their goals – whether it be relaxation, stress-release, creativity enhancement, or something else. Altha currently offers comprehensive corporate wellness programs that feature their signature hypnosis-infused sound bath; the Hypno-Sound Bath™. If you are looking to experience an Altha sound bath on your own, Altha often hosts public sound baths around the LA area which can found on their Events page.
