Home / About Us

Our calling here at solu is to expand Peace and Healing, everywhere, through sound.

We recognize sound and vibration as vital to all of life, and conceived structures to bring the seemingly-mystical healing power of sound directly to you. Our goal is to help relieve your brain and attune your body and being to a more harmonious state, ultimately assisting you to open the doorway into all that you are. 

 All you have to do is listen.

Since our company, and mission, was born,  solu has not stopped proving itself as an original answer to stress—and a doorway to self-growth—that has moved far beyond even the ideas and hopes at its conception.

 solu leads from Truth. 

The intention of our very small but driven team is to connect, always, to the heart first. Then, we trust what comes. We have discovered that this allows for undeniable truth in every interaction, solution found, and decision we make.

 Embedding love from the ground up has given us the insight to learn as we go, with unquestioned integrity, and fosters a connection to the bigger picture as we navigate forward.
