The Zen Fox
Combining Eastern & Western approaches to healing, Michael Fox curates a unique experience applying massage, sound and energy therapies. “The Zen Fox” is a physical and sonic journey of letting go on all levels. Harmonizing our higher, truest selves into the Here and Now with the power of sound & vibration.
The power of sound therapy can help cleanse. renew, and awaken our vital life force energy (Prana ~Mana ~ Chi ~ Qi). One can expect deep states of relaxation, mental clarity improved sleep patterns, and mood boosting effects.
As Humans, we are vibrational beings, made up of mostly water. Sound therapy is essentially healing our cells, neural pathways, hormone function and stored energy (sometimes trauma) within our mind & body. Studies show how sound waves profoundly effect our cellular make up, nervous system, endocrine system and energetic centers of the body. Energy/emotion can get “stuck” within our tissues and energetic field (Aura). By disrupting stagnant energy or negative patters with sound, we can help heal ourselves by balancing our chakras [Sanskrit: wheels of light] and nervous system.
Given its wide versatility, sound therapy safely and effectively addresses:
- Physical Relaxation
- Mental Clarity
- Emotional Release
- Chakra Balancing
- Low Energy
- Digestive Problems
- Poor Sleep

What are Chakras?
In Sanskrit, chakra translates to “wheel” or “disc of light”. There are 7 main chakras located within our body, each one correlating with a musical note, color and emotional characteristic. This ancient concept is quite complex with many ways to approach and balance each chakra. Eating certain foods and hearing certain frequencies are examples.
Our signing bowls are intentionally crafted to resonate to the frequency of many different chakras and promote a wide range of positive responses within these energy centers.
“The body is held together by sound. The presence of disease indicates that some sounds have gone out of tune.” – Deepak Chopra

Michael Fox has cultivated the ultimate Zen experience, by weaving Eastern and Western modalities of natural medicine that promotes healing within the mind body and spirit.
Focusing on the release and activation of specific energy points and pathways (Meridians, Sen lines, Marma points, trigger points and Chakras) Michael combines his knowledge of multi-cultural traditions and techniques to harmonize the body and mind. Each session with be different as everyone’s healing journey is unique. Most sessions will involve chakra balancing, Reiki, sound healing, Tui Na techniques, cupping, Thai stretching and meditative massage techniques.
Chakra balancing is a wonderful addition for this session, we can focus on imbalances within the energetic body & auric field. Sound therapy will further advance healing in these areas of blockages, attuning to the specific vibration in that energetic center. Integrating Reiki with the Zen Fox is a perfect modality to nurture the innate healing within the energetic system as well. Rei-Ki “Universal Energy” stems from a Japanese lineage of energy work founded by Dr. Mikao Usui. This legendary healing practice is known for its effects on physical, emotional and mental diseases as a natural alternative to invasive medicine such as medications, surgery, etc. Michael has 3 years of Reiki experience and holds a Level III certification.
Tui Na and Cupping extend from centuries of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and are based on Meridian theory. These energetic channels house our bodies Chi (vital life-force energy). Tui Na “Push / Grasp” is the form of bodywork that Acupuncturists use to release blockages within specific meridians and can bring fresh chi back into stagnant areas. Cupping is included and highly recommended within the Zen Fox massage due to its profound effects on releasing physical tension, energetic and emotional stagnation as well. Michael uses traditional Chinese fire cups to create a vacuum effect over ares of congestion. Sliding cupping is when they are moved over the body to release stuck fascia and dense muscle tissue. Cupping elevates our bodies healing response by increasing blood, lymph and oxygen flow (red and white blood cells). Michael has been trained in Meridian Fascial Cupping and is a NCBMBT certified cupping instructor.
