Teri Wilder – Healing Sanctuary, Wellness Through Sound & Touch

A Certified Sound Healing Practitioner and Gong Player, Reiki Master, and Certified Medical Intuitive Practitioner

Hi, I am Teri Wilder!

I am passionate about healing and wellness through vibration, sound, and energy – and offer transformative sessions with my unique three-pronged approach. I am delighted to express my energy healing talents as a Certified Sound Healing Practitioner and Gong Player, Reiki Master, and Certified Medical Intuitive Practitioner, which interface for a comprehensive session for my clients. My deeply layered skills are built upon my early foundation of vibrational work as an accomplished singer, songwriter, and voice talent. This foundation focused my talents on uplifting outreach through music vibration and words.

I have traveled extensively across the country for keynotes, concerts, gong meditations, and energy work to support wholeness, creativity, and peace. Understanding the healing power of sound and music led me to study the science of vibrational and energy-based healing and to pursue certifications to practice those modalities.

San Diego-based – Teri Wilder Healing Sanctuary has created an intimate space for soothing and rejuvenating work with my clients.

A joyful messenger of good vibrations

I can provide insight as a gifted and trained Medical Intuitive to help identify root causes impacting a client’s health and combine two energy modalities – Reiki and Sound Healing Sessions – designed to help restore physical and emotional well-being to support the body’s the natural rejuvenation process.

My dedication to raising the vibration of the planet is a theme running through all the modalities I choose to pursue.

My intention is to raise the vibration of the planet

While it’s not possible to provide any guarantees, my sessions have enabled countless clients to restore health, reduce stress and discomfort, and achieve a greater sense of peace and lightness, and/or an improved sense of life balance and well-being, as shared in their reviews. Their comments parallel numerous published study results for these modalities. 

My Early Career

I studied improv at Players Workshop, the precursor to Chicago’s Second City, and have a background in professional theater. I launched my media career following a move from my hometown, Chicago, to Kansas City in 1994. I enjoyed 11 years as a Kansas City radio personality at Oldies 95, 101 The Fox, and Star 102. As a voiceover talent, I have national spots to my credit, such as IBM, Disney, Betty Crocker, GMC, and Missouri Lottery. I was also the original voicemail voice on Sprint phones – “You have one new message.” My voice can be heard in numerous movies and TV shows.

Media and Music

I then left the corporate world and began to pursue music full time – my first love. My self-titled first CD came out in 2002 and was a foray back into songwriting with a positive spin. I understood the intrinsic healing aspect of positive messages and uplifting music. This focus on “cause and effect of music” for well-being was the beginning of my development in vibrational healing work. In 2005, I began writing specifically for the New Thought churches where I’d been singing for a decade. Out of that came three CD’s – I Choose Joy, Magical Moment, and At Your Service, rich in inspiration and good vibes.

Therapeutic Application Of Sound Frequencies To The Body, Mind And Emotions

I sought deeper work to use tonal frequencies to help others feel better and bring the body into a state of vibrational balance and harmony. I quote Nikola Tesla, the ground-breaking engineer, physicist, inventor and futurist, regarding his personal evolution in healing awareness and training: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”

I became a Certified Sound Healing Practitioner in 2013 through the Globe Institute in San Francisco after several years of performing as a Gong Player. I play a family of gongs, including Symphonic, Planetary, Wind, and Chau gongs. I recorded Mystical Gong Meditations, a CD of four beautiful gong-only meditations with fellow gong players, Barbara Cole and John St. Claire.

I create an almost other-worldly experience for clients, bathing them with sounds in a safe space where I intuitively play gongs, sound bowls, and chimes with a variety of mallets and brushes designed to soothe, recharge, and vibrate all the way down to the cellular level in the body. The “gong bath” environment can allow the body to relax, seemingly connecting with ones’ essence of self and enabling emotional pressures and physical tightness to be released. A Sound Healing Session can facilitate the release of poorly-served emotions and fears a client may be holding onto, which could be causing illness, “dis-ease” or energetic blockages in the body. I have found that those receiving this work do not need to know exactly what needs to be released, but that just setting their intention to release can be sufficient for results. I call it a therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body, mind and emotions of a client with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony, balance, and well-being.

With my deepening knowledge about the benefits of vibrational and energy healing modalities, I sought Reiki as a natural adjunct modality to my Sound Healing Sessions and completed my Reiki studies in 2017. As a Reiki Master, I combine the two energy modalities aimed at creating a more powerful experience in our Sound Healing Sessions. Reiki is a Japanese technique intended to reduce stress and increase relaxation – promoting rejuvenation and well-being. I use my hands with this ancient technique, which is based on the principle that the practitioner can shift the client’s energy, but it does not require touching. The stimulation is designed to activate the natural rejuvenation processes of the client’s body, helping restore physical and emotional well-being.

I received my Certified Medical Intuitive Practitioner (CMIP) back in 2020 from The Practical Path, the premier Medical Intuitive training program whose graduates’ outstanding results were featured in a study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (JACM). This skill is not an energy healing modality, but a tool. It is an in-depth intuitive viewing technique as an approach to pinpoint what should receive attention for optimal well-being.  I can provide comprehensive Medical Intuitive assessments with a scanning of the physical anatomy, as well as a scanning for the emotional, mental and spiritual underlying causes that may impact a client’s body, mind and spirit.  I often use this remarkable skill to determine the best way to proceed with customized Reiki and/or Sound Healing Sessions.

While I have extensive experience as an alternative healing arts practitioner, my services are not licensed by the State of California. I am not a physician, psychotherapist, or other licensed health care practitioner and do not provide medical or psychological diagnosis or treatments in my sessions. Under Sections 2053.5 and 2053.6 of California’s Business and Professions Code, I can offer my services, subject to the requirements and restrictions that are described fully therein.
