Christy Doyle would get a Harmonyum treatment everyday if she could.  Doyle, a 39-year-old Bethel, Connecticut resident (she looks much younger, which she attributes to Harmonyum), is a Harmonyum practicioner as well as a reiki Master, and she has recently begun to offer her Harmonyum services at Take Time Relaxation Center in Bethel.

“You lay face down on the [massage] table and you have your clothes on,” Doyle said of the physical aspect of Harmonyum.  “I work with the spine, from the nape of the neck down to the tailbone.  It’s a very light touch to the spine[…]it’s not like reiki where you kind of use your intuition; this is a set of steps that we don’t go off from.”  The session lasts for 45 minutes, and Doyle adds another 15 minutes to allow for paperwork, explanation of the procedure and solitary integration time for the client following the Harmonyum session.

Doyle says the goal of Harmonyum is to feel good, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  “It works on a really deep level; it works on a cellular level,” she said.  “It slows the body down.  Especially in this time, everything is so high-paced and there’s a lot of stress, and it just kind of brings the body to a slower mode.  But it raises the vibration of the cells so that it builds a platform for self-healing.  Your body is more relaxed and it works on your autonomic nervous system.  When your autonomic nervous system is balanced, you pause, you’re able to make better decisions, you feel good.”

Doyle said that she has often seen chronic conditions disappear after people undergo several Harmonyum sessions, most notably skin conditions such as psoriasis.  “It gives you a great glow, and it really does create harmony,” Doyle remarked.  “It really works on your self.  A lot of people have a release at some point after, whether it’s here or in the car or sometime during the week something happens.  They say that a session of Harmonyum is equal to years of therapy, and meditation.”  

Doyle went on to say that Harmonyum is a spiritual science based on divine spiritual wisdom, or Universal Kaballah, which Wikipedia defines as a “set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an eternal and mysterious Creator and the mortal and finite universe (His creation).”  Harmonyum was founded by Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, also known as Gurunam, who is a spiritual master, teacher, writer and lecturer, according to the Rootlight website . Levry is the founder of the Rootlight company and the founder of Naam Yoga (Doyle is an instructor), which is a fusion of Kundalini yoga and Kaballistic teachings.  Rootlight explains that Harmonyum is a type of preventative treatment that goes beyond the reaches of conventional medicines, going straight to the cellular level and invigorating the body’s immune system.

“Since they only address the symptoms as they emerge in the physical body, medical treatments merely provide temporary relief. Harmonyum, on the other hand, restores the spiritual body to its normal and rightful function. Once this is established, the autonomous nervous system begins to vibrate with vital energy and Divine Intelligence. The impact of these healthy vibrations is passed to every cell of the physical body. When the vital powers, or divine cosmic powers, within the human body are functioning to the proper extent, there is no necessity for herbal extracts or medicines that are strictly limited to the physical and material composition of the body.”

Doyle is not currently permitted to practice Harmonyum in her job as hospice aid, but she believes it would greatly benefit her patients.  

“I personally treated my sister,” Doyle shared, “she just unfortunately passed away of brain cancer.  But she loved it.  She said that was the best she had felt her whole sickness.  She said it was so relaxing and put her in such a state of peace.”

After falling in love with Naam Yoga, Doyle became a certified Harmonyum practitioner in 2009 under Levry’s tutelage at his non-profit Universal Force Healing Center in New York City, and she predicts an explosion in the popularity of Harmonyum in the near future.  

“In this time especially, with the amount of stress people are enduring, they are looking for a solution to it and ways to feel better,” Doyle said. “I think it’s going to be very soon that it’s really going to get out there.  I think you’ll be seeing Harmonyum shops popping up.”

I was invited to receive a treatment of Harmonyum following our interview, which left me feeling profoundly relaxed and serene.  The session took place in one of Take Time’s private massage rooms, which was outfitted with a wonderfully comfortable massage table, soft, glowing lights and calming mantra music I recognized from the Naam Yoga classes I had taken in the past.  Doyle’s hands and fingers lightly traveled the length of my spine, and I became so relaxed that I fell into a few mini-naps.  Doyle then had me sit upright and touched my head and shoulders; she had explained earlier that she was balancing and consolidating the energy I had received.  The session ended with Doyle rubbing my back in a soothing, motherly way.  She told me I could take as much time as I needed in getting up, and she had a cup of water waiting for me out in the Take Time lobby.  I felt as though I had had a very good sleep, but without any of the grogginess.  I felt good, and my sense of perception felt new and expanded for about ten minutes after the session.

Another question had occurred to me while receiving the Harmonyum treatment – how did it feel for Doyle?  She answered that in order to transfer the energy she becomes a neutral conduit, and she is essentially meditating or reciting a mantra prayer throughout the session.  

“I feel content,” she summarized.  The feeling was mutual.
