Sound is the medicine of the future, and the future is now.
At SoundEmbrace, our mission is to elevate the field of Sound Healing Therapy as an innovative, cost affective, non invasive therapy, as well as creating a foundational standard for Sound Practitioners to thrive in supporting the mental health and wellness of our communities.
Healthy goes beyond waking up pain free and well rested. It is waking up and embodying the authentic version of yourself - full of vitality, living your purpose, with passion and abundance. Knowing how to handle stress, feeling pride for the work you do, and having the confidence in yourself to make better decisions for YOUR life. This ripples out creating a beautiful world we all want to be a part of.
The SoundEmbrace Certification Program is unique because it not only provides Holistic Health Practitioners, Therapists, Healers, and Coaches the opportunity to gain education in the field of Sound Healing Therapy but also connects the dots of epigenetic factors, neuroscience, biology, psychoacoustics, and metaphysical science that are important for a Sound Practitioner to affectively facilitate for desired outcomes.

SoundEmbrace Sound Healing Certification Program
is a program designed to help you succeed!
It is the difference between a performer and a facilitator.
SoundEmbrace offers a Certification Program in Sound Healing Therapy; the study of the effect of sound on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body.
SoundEmbrace has collaborated with some of the best in the field to create a comprehensive program that bridges the gap between science and spirit so that students gain grounded knowledge in the field of sound healing, while confidently leaning in to their subtle body knowing for affective facilitation.
Majority of classes are online to create the opportunity for students to fit classes in as they can, creating more flexibility.
Once students have paid in full, they have access to the content for life, even when content updates.
Students will learn the foundation of Sound Healing, Acoustics, Psychoacoustics, Anatomy, Physiology, Neuroscience, Metaphysical Science, Epigenetic’s, gain Coaching Skills, and build their Subtle Body Awareness, so that they feel confident in facilitating sessions and starting their own Sound Healing Practice.
Certification Program Students will learn a variety of sound healing tools and techniques, have the opportunity to participate in instructed group sessions, and become part of the SoundEmbrace Network of Sound Healing Therapist’s.
Certification Program Students will also receive the SoundEmbrace Membership Program ($350 Value) for one year, which provides discounts on products and services such as instruments and self care.
The program was created as an ecosystem that supports and builds community. Students must attend (4) and assist (4) sound bath sessions or 1-on1 sessions. This gives students experience outside of class on running sessions, marketing, and practical application of instruments with clients, as well as support veteran Sound Practitioners in building and supporting their businesses.
Alumni also have first chance to interview for sound healing work opportunities with SoundEmbrace as opportunities arise within their interest.
Sound Practitioner (10)
Students learn how to ease into playing certain instruments safely, the ergonomics of facilitating, taking care of the physical body to meet the demands of the physical nature of this work, and the difference between a performer and a facilitator.
Metaphysical Science (55)
In this series of classes, students will explore the true nature and behavior of the non-physical aspects of Reality. Students will be taken through a series of exercises through the program to move through their own potential blocks, learn how to build their subtle body awareness and strength while becoming confident in expressing their experiences, learn the power and science of intention, and how to apply what they learn for their clients.
Sound Foundation (20)
This series of classes is divided into two sections. In the first part, we will discuss the physical manifestation of sound, its behavior, and existence in the real space. Starting from the very fundamentals of acoustics, we will define what sound is and discuss its properties. In the second section, we will dive into the human subjective interpretation of sound. We will look closely at the mechanism of hearing that allows us to witness a sound signal and interpret it as sound and music.
At the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of what sound is and how we, as humans, connect to it. Understanding how sound behaves and how the human brain creates a cognition of it will help you, sound practitioner, identify the best practices to truly impact your client's sonic experience.
The Sound Body (20)
This course will give you a basic understanding of human anatomy and physiology. This information will then be used to explain how vibration, sound waves and the practice of sound healing can influence the human body.
With this basic knowledge, you will be able to confidently use sound therapy techniques in a strategic way to facilitate the body’s healing mechanisms without causing any harm and, more importantly, understanding why these changes in the body are occurring.
History And Theory (15)
Students will learn history and theory about the origins of instruments, how the instruments were used culturally, honor the cultures of these teachings, and how sound healing has evolved into what it is now.
Sound Facilitation (60)
Sound Facilitation supports students in bringing concepts and principles learned, all together, for the practical application and facilitation of sound healing sessions. Students will learn how and when to use various sound healing instruments, such as quartz crystal singing bowls, voice, drums, gongs, and shakers (to name a few), to facilitate different types of sound healing sessions, what to be aware of in facilitation and how to adjust on fly, .
Students are required to attend four (4) different Sound Healing Practitioners Sound Baths (not included in tuition), as well as assist four (4) sound bath sessions of the same Sound Healing Practitioner. Students will also facilitate together at the Finale Graduation Ceremony on December 10th, 2019.
Sound Coaching (20)
In Sound Coaching, students will learn about Epigenetic’s, and Coaching techniques to guide their clients to their goals. We will cover ethics, common challenges, what to consider having in a wavier, and where to start in starting their own Sound Healing Practice or Business.
Meet Your Teachers!
Danielle Hall has created a movement for inner awareness and empowerment through sound experiences. Her journey into the therapeutic benefits of sound and vibration started when she was very young. Playing alto saxophone and singing in choir were a place of refuge for her growing up as she experienced on again, off again health challenges.
When she was 28 years old, she became “not her normal sick”, experiencing extreme challenges in her health. This was the catalyst for Danielle to become open to alternative therapies and begin her journey to recovery. This recovery inspired her to evolve out of her 10 year career in Photography and support others in their health and wellness journey.
As a Sound Practitioner, Wellness Coach, Reiki Mater, and teacher she is shifting perspectives around empowerment, and leading a team of trained sound practitioners to elevate the sound healing industry, while serving the mental health and wellness of our communities.
With nearly a decade of experience in the field, Danielle has worked with adults and children transitioning through various traumas including PTSD, depression, sexual abuse, digestive issues, and physical pain, using specific sound tools and techniques to facilitate shifts in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body.
She creates job opportunites for SoundEmbrace Sound Healing Practitioners in corporate wellness programs, therapy centers, and non profits. She has her BA in Metaphysical Science (currently working on her Masters), Certification in Sound Healing Therapy, Reiki Master Certification, 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification, is a member of the American Public Health Association, the Georgia Health Association, and is an Associate Member of the Recording Academy.
Dr. James Munro
Dr. James Munro developed his curiosity for natural medicine after a long journey of struggling with debilitating chronic disease which was treated unsuccessfully using multiple prescription drugs. After over 10 years of deteriorating health in spite of receiving the most cutting edge medical treatments, he finally found a naturopathic doctor who helped him completely overcome his chronic disease within months, using entirely natural, healthy and lifestyle-based methods. He no longer takes any medications and has gone from having difficulty exercising to becoming a competitive athlete.
After this profound experience, he attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa where he earned his bachelor’s degree in pre-med biology while concurrently practicing as a licensed massage therapist. He then moved to Portland, OR where he earned his doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine, a 4-year, nationally accredited doctoral program consisting of a rigorous clinical science education as well as over 700 hours of clinical rotations. He holds an active naturopathic medical license in Oregon and is excited to have the opportunity to practice in Atlanta.
Dr. Munro has a strong passion for helping people to completely overcome and conquer their chronic conditions, not just manage them, using whatever therapeutic interventions work best for each patient. He believes that the best care comes from looking beyond physical health. He doesn’t just want you to feel better, he wants you to be happy and thriving and following your life’s passions.
In his free time, he is an avid writer, musician, competitive martial artist and is always looking for a new and exciting challenge.
Dr. Crystal Jones
With over fifteen years of professional leadership and practice in the healthcare and wellness industries, Dr. Crystal Jones shows up as a disruption to the narrative of brokenness in healthcare and wellness. She does this by intentionally creating atmospheres that honor the physiology of Divinity.
In her private practice, she witnesses the sacred process of death and rebirth through a myriad of modalities. In her public practice, she cultivates space for women of color (trans, cis, non binary, gender non-conforming) to believe themselves and move through the grief of unconscious and internalized anti-blackness.
Dr. Crystal Jones is a consultant and guest lecturer in medical schools and traditional healing trainings around the globe. Her trauma-informed and healing centered languaging opens the conversation for practitioners to do the internal work required to create sacred space for expansive healing. Her work focuses on the subtleties of healing through the eradication of the unconscious power dynamic.
As a teacher and speaker, she’s employed her genius to add value with companies that range from Pfizer, Adidas, SXSW and The National Urban League to social engagement companies such as Black Girl in Om and Blavity. She continues to span the globe creating containers for critical thinking that disrupt the current paradigm of brokenness in a way that elevates the Truth of innate Wholeness in a sustainable way.
