"Every so often I come across a healing that resonates deeply and that's how I feel about Anne and her sound therapy. Plagued with chronic tiredness and a body that ached continually, I struggled to make it through the day.
After one session I felt lighter and rejuvenated The heaviness that had invaded my body had lifted and I found myself moving through my days with greater ease. Some people have regular massages or other therapies to nurture and heal themselves but for me sound therapy does what nothing else could and for that I am truly grateful! My most heartfelt gratitude and thanks to Anne who is truly a gifted healer!! "
Chris - Blue Mountains
“Anne provides a process that is holistic in the nurturing and the awareness she creates, enhancing wellbeing on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. It is as if I carry the vibrations with me when I leave and they stay with me for a couple of weeks, especially if I follow the ‘after care’ practices and suggestions we have identified that week.”
Annie – Blue Mountains
“ I think the sound therapy sessions helped me to break through this block I seemed to be experiencing, and my health is back on a healing path."
Therese - Blue Mountains
"I experienced a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing during and following on from the sessions with Anne, she was able to introduce me to a different way of processing issues and allowing the sounds to surround me and thus it felt almost like a travel experience within myself. It was a completely new experience for me but so relaxing and ultimately up-lifting , that the effects were felt for some time after each session and I look forward to continuing to see her as a client in the future."
Milena - Blue Mountains
"I feel sound therapy helped me with releasing tension and blockages that I felt in body, heart and soul. The sound therapy seemed to melt and dissipate some of my worries and troubles and leave me always in a more balanced, grounded and peaceful state. I would love to continue regular sound sessions, as I believe they are very beneficial to anybody’s balance and sense of well - being. It’s like a vehicle taking you to your inner sacred space. I certainly recommend it as a source of strength in time of need! Thank you Anne"
Elvira - Blue Mountains
" I’ve just completed four sound therapy sessions with Anne Ridgway in the Blue Mountains, and the sessions were so enjoyable and transformative that I would go back for another four. I’d happily do so to address issues but to also maintain a sense of wellbeing and ease. The sound could work on me without me having a belief system around it, though I was open and also trusting of Anne, I found the sound could bypass my thinking and connect deeply with my body with my deeper self."
Niki - Blue Mountains
"Essentially sound therapy is a practice in which I can relax deeply in a short space of time, enabling my brain to clear of the clutter and to then get clarity about what is important for me."
Caroline - Blue Mountains
"I have undergone several sound therapy treatments with Anne over a number of months. During this time I have been impressed by Anne’s calm, gentle and professional manner, which has added to the therapeutic benefit of the treatments. The treatments are incredibly relaxing and soothing and have benefit as a type of mindfulness technique."
Jean - Blue Mountains
"I have recently been fortunate enough to experience sound therapy with Anne Ridgway over a series of four sessions. My sessions with Anne were very much focussed on restoring and maintaining physical, mental and spiritual balance during a particularly stressful period. I found Anne to be exceedingly intuitive, possessed of a calming demeanour and importantly, a person to whom I could speak freely and openly. Anne was able to facilitate deep experiences of relaxation and stillness that helped me work through stress and its myriad of causes at both a conscious and subconscious level.
I genuinely feel that sound therapy induced deep relaxation, a greater sense of being “present”, richer sleep and an overall sense of balance. In closing, I am very grateful to Anne for the work that we did together. It has helped me re-focus on what is fundamentally important to me and I plan to continue working with Anne in the future. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Anne as a sound therapist to anyone who is seeking greater balance in life, mental and physical health and clarity of thought."

Kamalaya guests & Australian clients
“I expected to feel calmer and more relaxed but I never dreamt of having a good night’s sleep!. Now that I recognise the healing benefits, I’m an advocate of Anne and her sound therapy treatment.”
Cassandra – Bangkok
“Dear Anne, Thank you for ‘catching’ me. The sounds were my safety. Thank you for the Light! Thank you for the Love …..”
Malika – Qatar
"As a first time guest at Kamalaya, I decided (even though a bit of a sceptic of alternative therapies) to try Anne’s ‘Sound Vibrational Therapy with Singing Bowls’ I am so pleased I did. What a wonderful experience! Anne’s soothing voice soon had a calming effect and the different sounds and vibrations from the instruments led to an overall feeling of harmony and peace. I went back to my room and ultimately drifted into a very relaxed state of well-being. I would recommend this wonderful experience to everyone……"
