Sound Therapy with SoundEmbrace
After working through the challenges of a chronic illness through her twenties, Danielle Hall sought alternative sources of recovery and pain management when traditional medicine didn't offer relief. Through her journey she found sound therapy, and began her "second life" helping others to find space within themselves using sound baths to relax and destress. You can find SoundEmbrace on Facebook and Instagram, or you can visit her website for her scheduled event dates and times locally here in Calhoun County. Be on the lookout for announcements of our upcoming Sound Bath session right here at the Chamber! Chamber members receive a special discount for this session courtesy of Danielle!
