How does a sound massage work?
After talking to the client, the practitioner places one or more singing bowls on the client's body, and then uses a mallet to make them resonate.
Every cell in the body begins to vibrate. The bowls used differ in frequency, vibration and sound. Each part of the body has its own specific bowl. Sound massage is often described as "beneficial" and "regenerative" by those who receive it.
Remaining clothed throughout the session is a definite advantage, avoiding any uncomfortable situations. At the end of the session, the client can talk about the experience.
During the post-session conversation, client and practitioner can also set a starting point for the next session.
To relieve stress and promote good health, eight to ten sessions may be sufficient (recommended frequency: 1x/week; 2x/month).
Is sound massage a medical treatment?
Peter Hess Sound Massage is not a substitute for medical or psychotherapeutic treatment, as it is intended solely as a relaxation method. It can, however, be used as an adjunct to medical treatment.
