In 2017, Ohm sessions was created when Paloma started using tuning forks and the Acutonics in her music therapy practice. The response and teachings when working with sound vibration with these children, helped her understand how the music can be medicine and learned first hand the multidimensionality of the human being through the power of sound. Ohm sessions is a space where the practice of sound vibrational healing and energy techniques allow the recalibration and well being of the self. Paloma travels doing this work back and forth between Mexico and Miami.
Paloma currently offers hybrid programs of sound meditation practice, children's art, music and mindfulness classes through Outschool and private clients.
