Kate Coppola, Sound Healer
Walking into a room full of mini-beds and a gong isn’t normally how one may want to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon, but if you have met Kate Coppola, you realize this beautiful sacred space and sound bath healing session is something you could get used to.
Kate Coppola and her family have been living in Montecito for almost 20 years; her daughter attended El Montecito Early School.
Coppola started her practice, “House of Profound,” after her own experience with health and wellness.
“I had gone in for a regular checkup and the doctor told me I had high inflammation and wanted to put me on a prescription for the rest of my life. I realized I wanted another option and started seeing a holistic doctor. I transformed the food I was eating and wanted to learn more about self-healing.”
From there, it was a snowball effect: learning about integrative nutrition led to studying Reiki – Eastern medicine and energy healing – and from there, sound healing.
“I found the mental and emotional benefits of sound healing have been around for over two thousand years. When you can heal the body from the inside out, it’s powerful.”
Her sessions begin with participants laying down and, if you choose, putting stones or crystals on the different chakras. Coppola then moves from multiple instruments, including rainmaker, crystal sound bowls, and a gong, to channel the energy in the room and start the healing process.
She explains, “The sound healing works on the parasympathetic system – your ‘fight or flight’ systems. We use brainwaves at night, while we sleep, to heal our bodies. When you do a sound bath, it activates your natural healing systems. It calms you down, your body thinks it’s sleeping, but you are not.”
Her focus for now is expanding her local practice. “I want to eventually create private retreats. I prefer working with smaller, more intimate groups so that I can get around to heal each person.”
Coppola offers regular sessions that are focused around the lunar phases; she also is available for private groups large or small, like baby showers and bachelorette parties.
