About The Teacher


David Moises is an Integrative Psychiatrist/Psychotherapist/Life Coach and Sound Healer currently in private practice in New York City since 1995. His work as a Sound Healer dates back to 1977 when he started a music therapy workshop that utilized the human voice as the primary therapeutic instrument for self-awareness, empowerment and healing. He will be sharing his experience with the integration of sound healing in his psychotherapy practice.

David, an Integrative Psychiatrist/Psychotherapist, is part of the field of holistic health care as a mental health counselor in a pioneering comprehensive/holistic health care and social services agency in New York City that still exists today and has served as a model and incubator for similar agencies nationally and internationally. He was also a graduate student of Anthropology at the New School for Social Research where he was drawn to the work of Dr. Michael Harner in Shamanism. He received theoretical and experiential training on the practice of Shamanism and was invited by Dr. Harner to co-lead a graduate seminar on the subject.

Being a life long musician and student of music from all over the world, David Moises travelled with the noted ethnomusicologist Dr. Verna Gillis to West Africa and South America where they researched, recorded and published the native music of Ghana, Peru and Suriname. Following his interest in Yoga and more specifically Meditation and Pranayama, David Moises spent a year in India where he solidified a practice that he maintains till the present.

Sound Spa is a vibrational healing center where David Moises utilizes the voice, the breath, overtone singing, Tibetan and quartz crystal singing bowls, tuning forks and gongs as therapeutic tools to enhance the healing process.   www.soundspa4u@gmail.com
