Meet the Creative: Neil Davis - Founder Future Vibrations
Offering one-to-one sound healing sessions, promising futuristic sound journeys, Neil Davis - Founder of Future Vibrations, is bringing a practice as old as time itself (well as far back as ancient times - think Egyptians and Greco-Romans with Pythagoras) to the masses, as a means of holistic therapy. Sound healing is based upon the practice of using specific sound vibrations to the body, mind and subtle bodies to affect changes in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Utilising sound and vibrations to affect change at an atomic level, Neil’s workshop promises to be a fully-immersive experience that will help people to connect on a deeper level, to resolve tension and worry held within the body. We had the pleasure of chatting with Neil, to find out more about his practice, what sound healing can do for you and where his happy place is - obviously at a festival!
What is your company, what do you do and what makes in special?
Future Vibrations – Sound Healing.
I offer one to one Sound Therapy sessions at City Therapy in the Northern Quarter. I also offer group Sound Meditations where I fuse ancient Shamanic practices, Sekhem energy healing, modern healing techniques and tools in music and dance as well as current scientific research.
In the sessions I merge ancient sounds and technologies including Gong, Tibetan Bowls, Native American Drum, African Kalimba, Maori Flute to name a few… with today's electronic frequency modulating and sound design to bring about change in physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies. And I host a variety of Sound Healing Workshops and Events in the UK and Europe.
Its special because I draw on a variety of healing modalities while also fusing ancient instruments with electronic sound design tools to relax, re-balance and rejuvenate physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies.
What made you want to be a part of Float?
It resonated with me because the festival is multi-modality and identifies with wellness being about a journey and growing and not being about seeking ‘perfection’.
Can you sum yourself up in 3 words?
Grounded, Passionate, Badass (Hahaha).
Can you enlighten us as to what a sound healing entails?
Well… in short… Sound healing is a deeply relaxing, rebalancing and restorative treatment where we use a variety of ancient and modern instruments, tools and the voice to send specific sound vibrations to the body, affecting change to the physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies.
What inspired you to get into this line of work?
It was a pretty natural progression really, I've been working in Health, Fitness and Wellness for over 16 years while also DJing around the world for the last 18 years, and as my two main passions in life they were destined to connect somewhere along the line. I suppose the exact link was when I realised and became fascinated how different records and sounds affect different people and cultures on the dance floor.
After a while I noted that specific sounds resonated with the body differently, so much so that people would dance differently based on certain frequencies and tones, so with further exploration, you could say… the rest is history.
What comes to mind when you hear the word wellness?
The journey of becoming the best version of yourself.
How does your work encompass wellness?
So… every atom of every molecule of everything on this planet vibrates at a certain frequency (hertz) The exact frequency (optimal vibration) at which it resonates creates form, and thus creates cells, muscles, bones, organs as well as energy centres and even thoughts. We use sound, the purest form of vibration, to offer change to your deepest atomic level, restoring the vibrational frequency of your molecular structure and energy bodies back into the rightful harmonious “healthy” vibration.
What makes you feel happy and well?
Raving in nature at a Festival.
What can people expect from your workshop?
An informative, relaxing, rebalancing and rejuvenating Sound Meditation.
What are you reading/listening/watching right now?
Reading: Stanislav Grof – The Transpersonal Vision: The Healing Potential of Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness.
Listening: Black Coffee Essential Mix 2018.
Watching: Electronic Awakening.
How has your experience affected your understanding of wellbeing?
Its opened up a whole new world really but in short I've become more in tune with working with energies and our subtle bodies.
Top three places in the world you would like to visit?
- The Maltese Hypogeum, a Sound Healing Temple built out of the rock in 3600-2500BC.

Do you have a quote that really resonates with you?
