Sound Healing Experience


Our mission is to promote holistic wellness and encourage healthy alternatives for your mind, body and spirit. For years I suffered numerous health conditions until I discovered I could take back my health naturally. Now, I want to help others in their journey to improve their health. Healthy Alternatives is a chemical free environment. Please do not wear perfumes scented lotions or smoke before your appointment.

Vibration can help restore regulatory function to a body out of tune and helps to maintain as well as enhance regulatory function to a body in tune.


Vibrational Reiki is a sound bath for the spirit and soul.  Reiki can release pain, anxiety, and negative emotions. In my Reiki sessions I incorporate sound healing. Vibrational Reiki combines the wonderful healing modality of traditional Usui Reiki with the powerful sound therapy and vibration of tuning forks, gongs, crystal bowls. The powerful combination of sound from the tuning forks, vibration, and Reiki energy, greatly enhances the healing session, and promotes deep healing of the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual body. Vibrational Reiki accomplishes more in a shorter amount of time. Clients have reported back that deeper seated issues were more easily released, and they leave my sessions with a deeper state of relaxation and peace within. It can bring balance to your life &, heal your chakra's. I am certified in sound healing and use a powerful combination of tuning forks in my sessions. I use chakra tuning forks, Solfeggio tuning forks, Pythagorean, body, brain, biofield, & vibro tuners. Each set has its own unique healing properties, and are powerfully effective when used together

Benefits of Sound and Meditation: The Sound takes you down into a deep state of meditation, automatically and that deep state helps dissolve your worries, and sets you up for a day of enhanced focus, creativity and energy. Sound Therapy has many benefits. It can boost immunity and increase oxygen intake.  It reduces stress, anxiety & depression, regulates heart rate as well as decreasing migraines, and pain. Relax on a yoga mat or seated in a chair. You will be guided with a meditation while listening to Crystal Tibetan and kaliski bowls being played. 


  • Promotes flow of energy or QI
  • Relaxes muscle tension
  • Balance adrenals
  • Promotes sleeps
  • Reduces stress, anxiety, & joint pain.
  • Relieves strained muscles, migraines & sinuses.
  • Increase bone density
  • Lower blood pressure.

Sound Healing Session - During a individual Sound Healing Session you will be fully clothed on a massage table and will receive Chakra Balancing with Sound and Vibration. It is massage at the molecular level. Energy creates vibrations which assist in the healing process. The sound emanating from the crystal singing bowls affects our frequency. It can reduce stress, anxiety, sinuses, and lower blood pressure



Carol Morissette is the only licensed massage therapist in Western New York to be certified in vibrational sound massage.   Morissette completed her certification in Vibrational Sound Massage in May 2016 through the Vibrational Sound Association at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Vibrational sound massage is a method of deep relaxation that can relieve stress and improve emotional well-being. Vibrational sound massage (VSM) combines powerful vibration and tones to induce immediate relaxation.

VSM has advantages over traditional massage. The client remains fully clothed and physical contact is kept to a minimum. It is less physically intrusive and will not leave the client feeling sore the next day. It is very beneficial for clients with fibromyalgia, arthritis, MS, geriatric, or recovering from cancer.

During VSM the body will absorb waves of vibration into its tissue, allowing the body to relax & repair itself instead of responding to outside concerns. Like meditation, VSM helps us be internally aware, while being more present in the moment and more connected with our surroundings. VSM takes you right into the Theta & Delta brainwave state.

Tension and stress affect the body’s overall health. Persistent stress can lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and arthritis. Stress is the cause of physical and emotional blockages. VSM decreases the effects of stress on the body and mind.

VSM uses Therapeutic Zen Singing Bowls.

Therapeutic Zen singing bowls are different from the traditional Tibetan bowls because they have a pure tone and strong vibration. The metal mixture is modified to provide an extremely resonant alloy. It has a subdued value and purity of tone.

The different size and tone of bowls are effective at treating different regions of the body. Combining these tones can produce Binural Beats.

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor discovered  the healing power of sound and was inspired to use the healing power of sound in his medical practice. Sound can improve your body's capacity effecting immune strength & brainwave patterns, as well as the quality of your daily life.



Guided Sound Healing Meditation: Relax on a yoga mat or seated in a chair. You will be guided in a meditation while listening to crystal Tibetan bowls and kaliski bowls being played. The sound emanating from the crystal singing bowls affects our frequency. It can reduce stress, anxiety, sinuses, and lower blood pressure as well as balancing adrenals and promoting sleep. I’ve been able to relieve sinus congestion, reduce a woman’s Blood Pressure problems, relieve back pain, relieved tooth ache, and relieve my own trigeminal Neuroglial with herbs and sound.


IET (Integrated Energy Therapy) is a Gentle therapeutic touch therapy to certain acupressure points on the body. It will serve to remove emotional trauma and energy blocks deep in the body's tissues. With IET we begin to release the past, live in the present and align with our soul's purpose. By focusing angelic energy through touch, we release our suppressed cellular memories and transform our lives.

Raindrop Therapy - Essential Oils are dropped onto the spine, and then gently feathered in and massaged. Serves to detoxify and boost immune system (Better than a flu shot!)  In ancient times, the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans understood the healing properties of aromatherapy and touch and saw how they played an important role in every day health.  Today, the use of essential oils has come back to mainstream complimentary medicine to help us regain health and vitality. 

Massage stimulates the immune system, helps to increase circulation, reduces stress, increases joint mobility, helps removes waste from the body, and increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the massaged area. I specialize in massage for individuals with Fibromyalgia.

Reiki is a hands on holistic healing technique that creates deep relaxation and relieves stress and pain. I practice Usui, Kundalini Reiki and Johrei. Johrei helps eliminate toxins and focuses on the kidneys which are related to many illnesses in the body.

I opened Healthy Alternatives because I wanted to help others take their health back naturally like I did. I suffered from hypoglycemia, esonophilic esophagitis, anemia, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc condition, ischemia, vertigo and IBS. (I was on Viox, valium, previcid, guifenisen steroid inhalers, ect.) I eliminated my prescription drugs with alternative health care. In 2003 I was having trouble with my esophagus. In 2004 my esophagus collapsed. I was unable to eat or drink thick liquids and had difficulty breathing. Milk was too thick to swallow. My esophagus would not stay open. In 2006 it stayed open but I had lost the ability to move food down the esophagus. I had motility damage. With the Ningxia Red juice, essential oils, Reiki, Raindrop Therapy, allergy elimination and prayer, I regained my health and my ability to swallow and eat. I feel compelled to help others Heal Naturally “If you don’t have your health you really don’t have a life!” I vowed to help others achieve health by offering the modalities that helped me regain my health.
