Greeting from the Executive Director
Creator of Singing Ring®, Executive Director of Singing Ring Association, Founder of Sion Inc., Image and Colour Consultant, Master of Arts in Education, Shizuoka University., Psychological Counsellor, Counselling Institute of Sophia University
Sion was in New York at the time of the September 11 attacks. Her health suffered as a result and in the process of treating herself, she started to investigate the profound healing properties of sound. In 2004, she completed the development of the Singing Ring, opening up a new world of sound therapy. Since then she has been guiding and educating people in her methods throughout Japan and overseas.
– Original CDs :“SEINARU RIN-NE (Tuning of Spirit)”, “OTOSHINWA (Sound Mythology)”, “Singing Ring Meditation” – Book: Full Harmonic Overtones CD Book (Available in Japanese)”
The musical instrument, Singing Ring, was created on the 10th of December 2004. Since then, two types of Singing Ring (Uchu and Daichi) have been created. As of October 2019, a total of over 4400 of them have been shipped out to mostly Japan, Australia and the United States of America, without damage nor the need of re-tuning.
The phenomenon of Singing Ring has been spread through word of mouth. It was also celebrated in “Gaia Symphony No. 6 and 7”, a documentary movie about a Japanese Professor, Makoto Shichida and his “Tamashii no Kyouiku (Soul Education)”. The Singing Ring is also used in collaboration with professional dancers.
The Singing Ring has also been gathering attention by alternative-medicine professionals. This has led to more academic research on sound therapy, guided by numerous researchers.
My hope is that the Singing Ring will be fully utilized by educational institutions, communities, companies, hospitals as well as every-day people.
For the brighter future of the Earth and its children, let’s work happily together with smiles on our faces.
Greeting from the directors
Director Dr. Akira Ikegawa
Director of Ikegawa Clinic. He established his obstetrics clinic in Yokohama-city, Kanagawa, Japan in 1989. Since then, he has been involved in approximately 100 childbirth deliveries every year. Currently, he researches prenatal memories for both mothers and children so that they can have better childbirth and parenting.
I have been close to Ms. Sion Kazu since meeting her in June 2003. The Singing Ring was created so quickly with her passion and energetic nature and I have been using it at my clinic since its creation. For those who have experienced the Singing Ring, they must already know the significance of it. Many researchers have been investigating its secrets, and recently many of these mysteries are becoming scientifically proven. Many people believe that the vibration holds a key to the future of healthcare. I see a huge potential in the Singing Ring. It could possibly be utilized and bring great results in medical fields. I am so delighted to support and spread the Singing Ring to the world.

Like many people who have experienced the sound of Singing Ring, I have also been attracted by its tender and deep sound. I decided to take the position as a board member of the Singing Ring® Association as I wish to share this amazing experience with as many people as possible. The investigative journey to the true value and role of Singing Ring has just begun. While deepening the objective and scientific insights, I will strive to polish my sensitivity and keep learning with each member of the association. I dream of the day that the harmonic sound of Singing Ring® that creates “Otodama” (sound spirit) will surround the whole world and establish a paradise on Earth filled with love and light for the future children. I would be very pleased to have further guidance and encouragement from all of you. Thank you.
Our objective is to contribute to society by carrying out research into the sound effects of the Singing Ring, spreading the information all over the world, and educating and supporting Singing Ring therapists and performers.
1. Our Goal
We aim to promote Singing Ring as a relaxation instrument with an underlying statement; “Anyone can easily access the sound of Singing Ring, anytime and anywhere.”
We also aim to bring out the best in others and fill them with happiness, in order for us and the Earth to be synced at the same frequency and be resonated and harmonized with each other.
2. Our Promise
We provide the highest quality sound to everyone who experiences the Singing Ring. Our by certified therapists and performers have undertaken extensive training to acquire the correct knowledge, technique, and a high ethical standard.
3. Education Policy
We believe that the best way to progress is to keep seeking new or better methods and theories without adhering to only one way. We understand that the best way is to keep on evolving each and every day.
4. Sound Provider
Our idea about the sound provider is, “All therapists and performers must be certified by the official Singing Ring training organization and work as professionals after they pass the examinations. They must also do ongoing education and training, and maintain a high ethical standard.” The use of the Singing Ring as a career should be standardized worldwide in order to provide people with happiness and harmony. Therefore, it is not suitable for those who have not undertaken any official training to provide Singing Ring services.
5. Establishment of Career
We clarify the difference between amateur and professional.
In order for the therapists and performers to establish their career with suitable ethics, we certify people to provide the best performance and sound therapy possible.
The certified therapists and performers are to spread Singing Ring extensively to everyday people so that it can be enjoyed as entertainment or a hobby. Each member will achieve the goal of providing the highest quality sound to the public by professionally cooperating with each other.
6. Define Instruments
Singing Ring is handmade instrument. It is perfectly tuned to make the same sound no matter which angle you strike from. “Sound Resonance” occurs when one Singing Ring is struck, and other nearby Singing Rings resonate without being struck. It is similar to ringing a tuning fork. Through this phenomena, we believe Singing Ring’s harmonic overtones can spread all over the world.
*There are two sizes of Singing Ring®: Large “Uchu (Universe)” and Small “Daichi (Earth)”. All come with engraved serial numbers.
(1) Spread information and educate people about Singing Ring®.
(2) Certify and Register Singing Ring® therapists and performers.
(3) Promote the social status of certified therapists and performers, and support them to become independent as a professional.
(4) Expand and develop the Singing Ring® program and performing techniques.
(5) Execute philanthropic activities using the Singing Ring®.
(6) All other activities that are necessary to achieve the association’s mission.
