Good episode? Give it some love!
A couple months ago, in Sedona, Arizona, I laid on a "sound-healing table", where a guy named proceeded to blast my body with everything from a didgeridoo to a gong to a flute, all blended with deep tissue massage work and an immersive musical and sound healing experience unlike any I've ever experienced. So who is this guy? Coming from a lineage of traditional healers in his family, Poranguí's cross-cultural background and study in both indigenous and occidental settings around the world inform his rich therapeutic bodywork practice. His technique - called "Myorhythmic Release" - combines the healing properties of sound, movement and breath as integral parts of our physical, emotional and energetic well-being. Experienced in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities as a Licensed Massage Therapist, his education includes over 15 years of study and practice with an interdisciplinary degree from Duke University in Integrative Health. Also an accomplished musician, Poranguí has performed, recorded and toured internationally.
