AlmaAlchemy therapies embrace the use of Sound and Dance as tools for personal transformation. Both curative and healing in nature, music and movement offer relief from pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia, tension, depression, energetic disharmony, and various forms of dis-ease. Sound and Dance are powerful therapeutic modalities that help to increase energy levels, aid physical and mental health, support inner/outer wellbeing, and assist the body and soul in becoming whole.
These sessions allow you to embark on a deep exploration and healing journey from the inside out. Within a safe and supportive environment, you are guided through a process of experiencing your inner voice through the gifts of Dance and Sound. Each session helps you cultivate self-confidence, self-trust, self-expression, self-sovereignty, emotional stability, inner peace, balance and harmony.
Coming home to ourselves with love and acceptance in our hearts, puts us on the path of alchemy. By knowing ourselves more deeply in body/heart/spirit, we become the alchemist of our own being.
Movement and Music are Medicine for the Soul
“Working with Josie was a really special experience and opened parts of me I didn’t realise were closed. From the very first session, when she bathed me in shamanic drum beats, I was hooked. But Josie took me so much deeper than just experiencing healing sounds. The sessions were completely bespoke, and I was blown away by her analysis of me based on the tones in my speaking voice. This was followed by a “prescription of medicinal tones” which I listen to every day. We also explored creativity and spontaneity through playing different instruments, and she inspired me to continue cultivating this in my own life. The results of working with Josie are clear – I’ve been much calmer, more present with myself, more creative, and I have started listening to music again after years of not being able to. It also helps that Josie is one of the most pure hearted people I have met, and she holds space seriously well. I feel so privileged to have worked with her.”

“To anyone considering her dance sessions…do it! Josie has a gift in making people feel completely comfortable and at ease. She holds space so you can relax, open up, let go and release the inner you – be that through movement, stillness, fear, anger, sadness, laughter or madness – it doesn’t matter – you’ll come out feeling anew. Get ready to be immersed in the Josie magic.” ~Sara Marlow (Dance Alchemy workshops)
“Thanks so much Josie for a powerful experience. I can’t believe it took me so long to visit you. I’d been going through a few stressful weeks and you really helped to achieve full relaxation. I felt really at ease, and when I was going home I had a sense of calm focus, which lasted for some time. I really enjoyed the experience and I’d definitely recommend it. I’m already thinking about coming again with my partner.”
~Nicholas Rodini (Sound Bath 1:1)
“I want to say a big thank you for the session today, it was a really good experience. I occasionally get little breakthroughs, and I’m having one today. I’d definitely relate it to taking some time out for self-care. Having someone else provide care for me is something I don’t often allow in. So thank you again. I’ve also had some of the most energetic days I’ve had in a long time! I did more yesterday than I would normally have done in a week, and I did it easily. I’d definitely attribute it to the drumming session we had the other day. It was a really nice outcome. I feel more optimistic about being able to maintain that level of energy and activity in the future. I’m in a spirit of gladness!”
~Pippa Johnson (Sound Bath & Interactive Sound Therapy 1:1)
“The session was amazing, I loved it. I felt tingling sensations all over my body from the minute you started drumming. My brain was conscious, but my body was in a deep state of relaxation. My whole body was literally vibrating, it was really good…I really liked it. I felt the vibrations mostly in my heart. It was intense, but in an exciting way. I didn’t know it, but it’s like I really needed to feel the beat of the drum and have this experience. It made me feel very safe.” ~Anjie Lee (Drum Therapy 1:1)
“Thank you for such a wonderful session yesterday. I feel hugely re-energised. I’d spent the weekend feeling very sluggish, but now I’m doing so well. I really think the Sound Bath was the catalyst for an upward spiral. Yesterday was long and knackering, but because of the session I’m feeling very vital right now and I’m getting a lot done. So thank you very much.” ~Peter Johnson (Sound Bath 1:1)
“You have no idea how much these sessions have helped me. Even though I joined the course late, I still learned so much. You’ve given me a lot to reflect on. The dance activities and the concepts you shared really made me go deep and discover things about myself that I hadn’t seen before. I can’t thank you enough.” ~Jackie (Infinity Dance course)
