“The sound of a sound bowl touches our essence. It dissolves tension, activates the forces of self-healing and releases creative energy.”
What is sound massage?
The very term “sound massage” consists of the terms SOUND and MASSAGE.
This is not about the concept of massage in the classical sense, such as in physiotherapy.
The term was chosen because the experience during the sound treatment, as the sound bowls touch them and as we move them around the body, is often described by clients as a type of “massage”. The vibration touches and massages every single cell in the body.
The treatment is extremely pleasant and completely painless.
The sound gradually removes the accumulated blockages, strengthening our ability to heal and relax only.
Unlike classical massage, there is no direct physical contact between sound massage practitioners and clients during sound massages. Sound massage is performed so that the bowls are placed on an isolated body during the massage and gently sounded with a stick and thus lead to vibration.
Pleasant sound vibrations, rich in tones are transmitted to the body and create a feeling of comfort and relaxation, returning each cell to its harmonious original vibration.
The frequency of treatment depends on the needs of the client. In the first round it would be advisable to do 4 treatments and then 2 more every other week. It is also good to periodically repeat the treatments to cleanse yourself of any accumulated negativity and maintain harmony of mind and body.
After treatment with sound bowls, it is recommended to drink more fluids (tea or water) so that the released toxins leave the body as soon as possible. The effect of the treatment is felt long after the treatment.
All of our treatments are certified by the Peter Hess Academy, established with the goal of professional practitioners education for the application of sound bowls and gongs in therapeutic purposes.
Sound massage treatments are extremely customized for personal and professional application. They are used successfully in many areas – in physiotherapy, medicine, wellness and psychotherapy.
It can be used by all ages, as well as children and pregnant women.
What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is a form of meditation in the lying position, because it is potentially the way to achieve maximum relaxation. It lasts about an hour and each participant should determine their intention to take a bath, such as healing a part of the body, resolving a life situation, releasing unwanted emotions, relaxing, etc. The sounds of gongs and sound bowls brings a person into a meditative state; feelings for time and space, although the person is aware of everything, are slowly lost. The sounds of gongs and bowls calm the nervous system and deeply relax, regulate the work of endocrine glands, stimulate circulation, regulate blood pressure, regulate the work of the right and left hemispheres of the brain, strengthen immunity, creativity, intuition and encourage body cleansing from toxins,…
After the bath, it is recommended to be in silence for a few minutes, which is as important as just playing, because then everything that is achieved during the sound bath is integrated. This type of therapy is called a sound bath or gong bath because it represents the fact that the human body is bathed in sound.
The impact of the sound of gongs and bowls:
- calms the nervous system and deeply relaxes
- regulates the work of the endocrine glands
- stimulates circulation
- regulates blood pressure
- balances the work of the left and right brain hemispheres
- strengthens immunity and promotes body cleansing of toxins
- encourages creativity, intuition and joy of life
The sound of Gong stimulates the flow of prana through the chakras and meridians (nadis), and removes energy blockades (subconscious programs and traumas).
ABOUT ME / Sandra Jurenović
Certified sound massage practitioner
It’s an amazing fact to find everything you really need – Tibetan bowls and their sound and vibration were a recognition of something primordial that is an absolute part of me. A completely natural experience with which I healed my emotional traumas and helped my body recover as quickly and easily as possible after two difficult surgeries. They eased the challenges of demanding single motherhood and brought me peace where it hadn’t been for a long time.
Just as I was magnetically attracted to the sound of therapeutic bowls, so now I share my passion to help others and bring them a positive vibration closer.
SERENITY is the realization of my dreams! I am happy to have my own safe place where I can help other people get back in balance, awaken their creative energy, and enjoy the positive vibes.
Who is Peter Hess?
Peter Hess began his career as a physicist and engineer, but his lifelong interest in teaching and psychology brought him to India and Nepal where he studied non-traditional forms of healing. Inspired by a different approach to health, he began to explore the effects of sounds on the mind and body of man.
He started working with sound bowls in 1984 and soon developed “Sound massage according to the method of Peter Hess”, today a very effective method of using sound, which he began to teach in workshops and seminars. “The sound of a sound bowl touches our essence. It dissolves tension, activates the forces of self-healing and releases creative energy”, explains Hess.
The Peter Hess Institute, founded 25 years ago in Germany, has over 16 academies and branches worldwide. By the way, modern medicine today confirms sound therapy as a medium of promoting health, from which it follows that sound is a type of energy medicine that can cure people of disorders caused by stressful lifestyle, depression, reduce pain, get rid of emotional blockades, etc. In that context, it should certainly be emphasized that in his many years of practice across Europe, it is the Peter Hess method that has produced very successful sound therapy results in people with disabilities and serious diseases.
Hess has also developed a very recognizable program for applying the sound of sound bowls in working with children – the so-called “Click” program.
