"THE SOUND OF THE SINGING BOWL TOUCHES OUR INNERMOST SOUL AND BRINGS IT INTO VIBRATION. THE SOUND BREAKS TENSION, MOBILIZES SELF HEALING FORCES, AND SETS FREE CREATIVE ENERGIES."
- PETER HESS, FOUNDER
Peter Hess sound-massage is a modern method rooted in ancient knowledge of the positive effects of sound, such as in the east Indian healing arts of 5000+ years ago. According to their legend, humans were created from sound, and are sound. It follows that if a being is "in tune" with both self and environment, he or she is able to live life more freely and creatively.
Peter Hess is a German engineering graduate (FH) in Physical Technology who has extensively researched the effects of sound on people. Based on his manifold experience, particularly in Nepal and Tibet, he started work with metal singing bowls in 1984. His sound-massage method is based on compiled investigations and experiments showing the effect of traditional music on the human mind and body. In his many years of practice, Peter has adapted this knowledge for western cultures - the result is the original Peter Hess® method of Sound-Massage.
Peter heads the Institute for Sound Massage Therapy in northern Germany, which continues to develop and expand on his methods; and he has shared his own experiences in seminars provided both in Germany and abroad since 1986.

The Peter Hess method of sound-massage is applied primarily for deep relaxation. We don't make claims of cure or treatment, preferring to view it as a supportive approach. We don't need to look for what's "wrong" with the recipient, since we're not there to "fix" them. Instead we aim for good feelings, safety, and peaceful rest. The ability to let go into relaxation is key in the experience of health, and thus by offering relaxation sessions we can help people bring body, mind, and spirit into harmony.
