Chakana Ascend

Chakana Ascend is the sound project of singer songwriter Mardi Ritchie, owner / founder of Chakana Spa & Wellbeing.

It is the branch of the Spa that showcases the heart and soul behind Chakana.

Created to awaken the feeling body through the senses, introducing sound, scent and sight as an addition to the tactile sense of touch that Chakana has become known for.

Chakana Ascend is the latest offering.
A treatment. A soundtrack. A Sound Activated Aroma Range.

It is contemporary healing by compassionate design.

It works with frequency and moves through the density of what is frequently felt within the body, and facilitates an arrival to a lighter sense of being.

“The body is an instrument. I tune in and feel; find the rhythm. I listen to the vibration of the
body as the voice of the soul. I harmonise with it, creating a medicinal space for healing and self-awareness.”
