Sound Massage Therapy
Peter Hess, a German engineer, is the modern pioneer of the ancient art of sound massage. He has developed a unique method after having experienced its healing effect during a visit in Nepal. In the last 20 years he has succeeded in adapting Eastern practices to the needs of people in Western cultures. He has created a multitude of specialized seminars for massage therapists, educators, midwives, hospice volunteers, psycho therapists, to name a few, and has demonstrated that Tibetan bowl therapy works well in cases of autism, ADD and other learning difficulties.
How and why it works
Sound massage with Tibetan singing bowls is a specialized sound-therapy, where singing bowls are placed directly upon the clothed body and are rhythmically tapped with a felt mallet. The calming sounds and soft vibrations generated by the bowls create the “relaxation response” which is the basis for all healing.
Sound massage is not just for ill people. Healthy people also derive great benefits from it, they become calmer and report higher levels of energy, as well as better sleep. Sound massage can effectively dissolve physical, mental, and emotional blockages and overcome daily stress, fear, and depression.
With regular treatments most people experience an increase in zest for life and an increase in creativity.
Sound massage is based on over 5000 years of Indian medicine. According to ancient Eastern teachings the universe and mankind were created from sound, therefore man is sound. When a sick man is “nourished” by the right kind of sounds, the cells in his body start to vibrate and re-organize themselves according to their divine blueprint.
Scientists are confirming what sages have told us for millenia: meditating and calming the mind are the cornerstone for health and longevity.
For most Westerners it is difficult to maintain a daily regimen of meditation to maintain inner calm. Many people give up long before they feel the benefit of regular meditation. A treatment with singing bowls can bring you effortlessly and immediately into a very deep state of relaxation, into the “zone” where self healing takes place.
