Chakra Sound Garden is not new to the Sartell area, but its location is, and so is the unique and rare healing device that was just installed this month.
Opened in June of 2019, Chakra Sound Garden has been serving the residents of Sartell and the surrounding areas with a different, holistic approach to healing.
For the past three years it has offered wellness classes such as yoga and sound healing, essential oils, crystals and top- of-line supplements. This small business has been growing and will soon be in its new place at 5 Riverside Ave. S., right next to Marnanteli’s Pizza. The goal is to be up and running sometime in mid-May provided all renovations to the building go smoothly. And once it re-opens, stop in and check out what they have in store, including some of the newest technology in healing.
Chakra Sound Garden is now the home of one of two Harmonic Eggs in all of Minnesota.
What’s a Harmonic Egg? It’s a device that takes light, color and sound therapy to a whole new level using frequencies for a different kind of healing.
Taken from the Harmonic Egg website, the device was invented by an engineer from Colorado. The unique shape uses a combination of size ratios and materials to enhance resonance. Professional musicians were enlisted to create some proprietary music specifically designed to utilize the acoustics of the egg.
Inside the egg is a seat that reclines to your comfort level. Lights and music are chosen specifically for you based off your healing needs. Sound and light healing has been around for a long time, but this new technology takes those methods and improves them using the unique shape of the egg.
Talk about new technology, at the time of this publication there were only 88 eggs available in the United States and Chakra Sound Garden has number 70.
As for what the experience is like for individuals inside the egg, co-owner Jean Struzyk said it’s hard to describe.
“It encompasses so much” she said, “and it’s so individualized that everyone experiences it in a different way, whatever their intention is for the session.”
In fact, even with it’s several varieties of sound and color, two people could have the same music and colors but have completely different experiences based off their personal needs.
“What it does, in a nutshell,” Jean said, “is it puts the cells in a state of balance.”
She goes on to say that, “It’s kind of like chiropractic [adjustments] in the sense that when you get an adjustment, your body has to learn to hold that. Same with this. It needs to be able to hold that frequency.”
Some examples of what the Harmonic Egg can help with are chronic pain, inflammation and mental health issues, just to name a few.
“Everything is a frequency” co-owner Julie Struzyk said, “We either chose frequencies that support us, or disrupt us. [The egg] supports us.”
As far as how it feels? Well, the chair inside the egg is stationary so you won’t necessarily feel movement, however, you will mostly likely feel something.
“There are amps right underneath you so you will actually feel the vibration” Julie said.
Each session will last 50 minutes. For 40 minutes the individual will experience both color and sound. The last 10 minutes of the session the sound is silenced and the person simply enjoys the color.
“Most people fall asleep” Jean said.
In addition to the Harmonic Egg co-owners and sisters Jean and Julie Struzyk of Chakra Sound Garden, are hoping to bring a variety of old and new classes to the new space. The hope is to bring in instructors who are trained in various styles of wellness and healing classes.
Jean said, “We will see who wants to teach here and offer some regular [classes] and specialty [courses] as well. We are also hoping to have some sessions outside when the weather permits.”
And the space is perfect for this with its double overhead doors that allow for plenty of sunshine and fresh air to come in.
But that’s not all. Soon, this place will be a one-stop shop for all your needs.
“We will eventually be able to have people rent space from us,” Jean said.
Both Jean and Julie are excited to invite practitioners from a variety of different backgrounds.
The second floor is being renovated into separate offices that will be available for rent to practitioners, such as chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists and much more.
Their focus is really on what the community is looking for. If you’re curious about something, or want to learn more about alternative healing, this is the place to start.
“It’s whatever the community wants,” Jean said, “If [they] want something, whether it’s a product or a class, or education, lets us know. We’re willing to do anything. No suggestion is too crazy.”
The sisters have a passion for helping people and it shows in their work and their future plans for the community.
“If you’re gonna do it” Julie said, “do it big.”
And these women have gone all out to offer Sartell and the surrounding areas the best in alternative health and healing.
