That’s the name of my new business, Sound Alchemy. Sounds cool, right?
There’s a place in Wallingford that sells all organic vegan food called Pure Alchemy and that’s where I got the idea from. Pure Alchemy sounds like a cafe I’d like to own but they beat me to the punch.
I always loved the word Alchemy.
I’ll be incorporating sound therapy into my massage sessions. There’s quite a big following for it but nobody here in CT practices it.
I ordered my chakra tuning forks and an 8 inch singing bowl from Amazon. I set up my new business website and email address.
When I was in massage school my friend, Matt, brought in his singing bowls. He had us lay down with our eyes closed and the lights off and he played them for us.
Now, I’m a very skeptical person. I don’t believe in new-age stuff like crystal healing, reiki, psychics..etc. It all screams bullshit to my ears. But when I was laying down listening to Matt play those bowls, my whole body felt it. That’s all I know. Is that I felt it and I liked it.
I don’t have to believe in chakra balancing or vibrational healing frequencies in order to enjoy it. My brain felt drugged and my body limp – it was awesome and I didn’t want him to stop.
I still think it’s bullshit, but that doesn’t matter.
Sound Alchemy. Oh god it’s so perfect! I’m deeply in love with the name. I even acquired a legit .com address and not one of those pansy-ass .net’s or .org’s. No, I’m a dot com’er baby. My new business email is even svelte.
Everything is fitting so perfectly in order like it already exists in the world just for me. I’m merely reliving the memories of putting it all together. It’s already there.
I’m not even thinking that hard. I’m actually really hungover today.
My website domain is set up, but I still need to write it up and add pictures. I went with a free WordPress site and the default set-up they have is perfect. It looks polished and professional. I don’t need to do a damn thing with it except write in the spaces they tell me to write in.
I’ll do that tomorrow. Maybe at Cheshire Coffee where I won’t be distracted with Netflix and games.
I’ll need to make some big purchases soon if I want to get this place up and running quickly.
What I need:
Surround sound stereo
Massage table, fleece, memory foam, face cradle
Cabinet (I already have an extra one I don’t use at work)
Chair for client
Stool for therapist
iPad and Square swiper iPad stand
2 Samsung tracfones
Solfeggio wind chimes
Tapestries and pier one art deco
Safe with a slot for envelopes
Foot scrub and dispenser bottle
A bench for storage
Pillows for pregnancy massage
I may or may not need a room divider
And my biggest purchase; a PEMF mat.
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy. It sounds like more new-age bullshit to me, but Doctor Oz gave it street cred and a lot of people seem to like it.
The mat costs $1000. Is it worth it? I highly doubt it. It can very well be a scam. A new-age snake oil. But supposedly it’s what they use on race horses, olympic athletes, and NASA uses it in space so the astronauts don’t get sick.
It’s FDA approved and all the devices out there got really good reviews. I searched for it on the skeptic and scam forums and there were more people praising it than there were skeptics bashing it.
So……I want one. I want one right now. And I want my Mother to test it out. She’d know better than anyone if the damn thing actually works.
$1000 freaking dollars. Hot damn. Hot damn it to shit hell fuck.
But it’s another reason for people to choose Sound Alchemy rather than the other guy. We got the good shit man. Crap you want to try but can’t buy.
Anyway, I’m hungry. It’s 11PM, my parents are at the casino, I’m home alone watching The Colony on Netflix. I haven’t played my game in two days.
Maybe I’m not addicted to my game after all? Some days I feel the need to play it. I can’t help myself and I need it. But other days I’m fine and only play it to pass the time when I have nothing to do.
Or maybe my new addiction is getting this new business up and running? I don’t know.
I really want this PEMF mat dammit. I need more money.
