BERLIN — Eric Breault of Quantum Tones Healing, is expanding his holistic practice to include a space designed to offer a range of services to clients. To celebrate his new location, Breault invites everyone to a grand opening complete with sample sound healing sessions and light refreshments. The grand opening will be held on Saturday, May 6, at 55 Maynesboro St., from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
For over a decade, Breault has been offering local guided meditation classes, sponsoring holistic fairs, and teaching and meeting with Reiki clients.
Celebrating the open house with Breault is massage therapist Leane Rexford, owner of Northern Oasis, who is also located in the health and wellness complex. During the open house there will be sample sound healing sessions, and light refreshments, including tea, wine, cheese and chocolate will be served.
All who attend will have a chance to win a gift.
During his sound healing sessions, Breault uses tuning forks, Chinese gong, Tingsha bell, didgeridoo, Native American drum, crystal singing bowls and bronze singing bowls, along with Reiki treatments in a session to connect to and release imbalanced energy through the power of sound and vibration.
According to Breault he prepares a client’s healing session so that the space feels professional, safe and comfortable. The client rests on a massage table, relaxed in the somber atmosphere with the soothing smell of essential oils and surrounded by the various sound healing instruments.
“During the session, the client would enter a pure state of relaxation as the high vibrational sounds vibrate through their body. The sonic symphony, with some guided meditation, will offer a new emergence of sound and vibrational healing,” Breault said.
Breault also noted that relaxation and meditation have always included soothing sounds, but sound healing is finding new support and science known as vibrational healing that uses the vibrations of the crystal bowls, the human voice, tuning forks, gongs and Tibetan singing bowls go a step beyond relaxation.
Breault said ancient cultures used chanting, and singing bowls to restore health and relieve pain. It has seen an increase in demand at wellness events. Users report deep relaxation, but also relief from aches and pains, to alleviating anxiety from chronic illnesses.
Breault is a hearing-impaired individual who navigates with the help of his hearing aids and fully experiences the world on a vibrational level. In many studies, science says that such positive vibrational qualities can relax the brain patterns and reduce respiratory rates, which has been documented to decrease the stress hormones in the body.

Gaynor, an oncologist and clinical assistant professor of medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York and the author of The Healing Power of Sound. “That is significant, he said, because stress can depress every aspect of the immune system, "including those that protect us against flu and cancer."
The community is welcome to partake in the one-on-one experience of the sound healing movement, or join in on a group class.
The new space for Quantum Tones Healing is designed to create a private street level access for Breault’s current and new clientele.
“This expansion into a new space is exciting, and speaks to the demand and interest for self-care and our growing commitment to the transformative journey of the person,” said Breault.
Breault is a local spiritual coach who focuses on the spiritual journey of awakening. According to Breault he uses techniques that inspire, motivates and enlighten people from his traditional education and spiritual training.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in human services and by combining the two coaching skills with his clients, he seeks to serve the community and connect with people in a unique one-on-one experience in Reiki, sound and vibrational healing.
Breault works with students in the local school system and was involved with the WREN Local Works Maker Studio as an instructor. As his business continues to grow, he shares his experiences through, healing sessions, classes and training.
The new Quantum Tones Healing space is located at 55 Maynesboro St. in Berlin. It is within the same building as Northern Oasis and K&S Fitness.
