Vibrational Sound Therapist
Hi! My name is Mary McIntyre. I’ve been a professional musician for about twenty years and am currently the Director of Music at Hopewell United Methodist Church. Working in various genres of music allowed me to experience and observe the profound effects that sound and certain harmonics have on the human psyche. After a life-altering experience with Vibrational Sound Therapy in 2017, I decided to learn how sound frequencies can be employed to bring about physical and spiritual wellness. I became a certified practitioner of The Alexander Method® of Vibrational Sound & Energy Therapy, and have continued to be amazed and inspired by the benefits my clients are experiencing through this transformative modality.
My hope is that through my work helping clients get in tune within themselves, I can help in some small way to bring about a more harmonious world.

Natalie Ponce, L.Ac, Dipl. O.M.
Acupuncturist & Chinese Herbalist, Sound Healer
Being a healer is a spiritual journey for me, far beyond being a job. As humanity goes through great shift in consciousness, I feel blessed to be a part of that reaching for a more compassionate world. I am a practitioner of Chinese medicine and treat through a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, essential oils and sound therapy. I work to not only resolve any imbalance in the body, but to help you understand the download that hides behind the disease. From the perspective of this tradition, any physical or emotional suffering we experience is always directly linked to our relationship to change, and the natural world, whose movements reveal the way to our own liberation. All illness begins on the etheric level far before presenting itself in the body, which means that to resolve a physical problem, we must also find the psychological and spiritual root, since the body is a reflection of the mind. These pains force us to stop and be present for what our spirits, and the movement of life itself wishes to awaken within us.
I received my training at the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine, where I completed my Masters in Acupuncture, and additionally completed my certification in Chinese herbology. After completing my degree, I was fortunate enough to train under heart-centered teachers who continue to share the shamanic roots of Chinese medicine, such as Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation Daoist priest. These trainings often revolved around the treatment of trauma, as well as the 8 extraordinary vessel system, which represent the blueprint of our existence, our destiny and its sacred unfolding. I now continue my training in the realm of sound with the Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine in New Mexico. This medicine involves the use of planetary frequencies and archetypal psychology to illuminate imprisoning thought patterns, open the heart, and remind us of the truth of who we are as creators…and the created, within the divine dream of life.
It would be an honor to work in spirit with you as your healer, to be a gentle guide, and loving ear as you navigate the ups and downs of life. If you’d like to learn more or schedule a session with me, please visit my website at www.lunitahealing.com.
May we all remember…eyes peering open to the blinding light, of the great love that we are.
