Welcome to Larimar Sound Alchemy.
I am Martin Janik ( Larimar ), a complementary therapist based in London UK that specializes in the use of vocal harmonics and musical instruments to restore balance and harmony within the body, mind and soul. I offer one to one Sound Healing, group Sound Baths and Sound Meditations in person as well as online.
My fascination with music and sound begun in my early childhood when I heard my voice being played back to me on a cassette, hearing my own voice coming out of a speaker absolutely blew my mind. Imagine hearing your own voice played back for the first time ever! Amazed by this experience I started recording stories that were playing out in my mind as a little kid on a tape recorder that was gifted to me by my grandmother. This led to playing around on my mother’s old guitar, then to jamming with friends in the local park all the way to writing and recording music in my home studio. In 2010 I was introduced to the plant medicine called Ayahuasca, a key moment in my live that led me onto the path of healing and the study of Shamanism, Systematic Kinesiology, Neurokinetic Therapy and Reiki. Spending many years holding plant medicine ceremonies, I have studied, witnessed and understood the healing abilities of music and song, especially when coupled with intention.
I was particularly touched and inspired by the healing songs ( Icaros ) of the Shipibo people of Peru. In parallel, during my long-time practice of Capoeira ( an Afro- Brazilian art form combining martial arts, music and philosophy ), I begun to notice similarities in its ritualistic use of rhythm and singing and the effects it had on my well- being. The time had finally come to formally study Sound Healing at the Sound Healing Academy in 2016 under Tony Nec, opening the doors to conducting Sound Baths for our South West London community and corporate companies such as Dropbox, the Beaverbrook Hotel, Sanctuary Spa and the Travers Smith Law Firm.
Sound Healing is an easily accessible and very effective form of therapy that yields profound results in helping people restore well-being. Through the therapeutic application of vocals and instruments a state of deep relaxation can be achieved. In this state of meditative awareness not only stress and stored emotions are released, but also harmony and clarity can be restored.
