The Peter Hess Method®

Peter Hess began his career as an engineer, but his life-long interest in teaching and psychology led him to India and Nepal, where he studied untraditional forms of healing and researched the effects of sounds on the mind and body.

Through his work with singing bowls, Peter developed The Peter Hess® Sound Massage. The Peter Hess methods are structured to create a consistent offer of relaxation.

It is the softness of the sounds that allows you to experience the pure effect of the singing bowls on your body.

The Peter Hess® Singing Bowls are produced specifically for this purpose.

Our Peter Hess® Singing Bowls are produced at the highest quality according to the old tradition with all twelve traditional metals. A small piece of an old bowl is added to the mix as a carrier of ancient wisdom.

A complete set for therapy includes

Small Bowl – High sound – Heart and throat

Medium Bowl – Wide sound spectrum – Hand, foot, joints

Large Bowl – Deep sound – Upper and lower abdomen

The Basic Principles of Sound Massage

During a sound massage harmonious sounds and gentle vibrations create a space for deep healing relaxation.

The singing bowl invites you to play, to experiment, and to be enchanted by its sound. Take a singing bowl into your hand and tap it lightly with your fingertips. Beautiful tones and overtones emanate from the bowl and touch you at the core. You are now on a journey, where you will discover the multitude of sounds that you can elicit from the bowl.

A sound massage goes beyond just the hand. During a full sound massage, singing bowls are placed on key areas of the body to complete the circuit of vibrational flow throughout the body. As the sound travels, your body naturally absorbs the specific frequencies that it needs for healing.

During a sound massage the human brain enters into the alpha-state, which is the state commonly experienced between waking and sleeping.

In this state, our breath becomes quieter and deeper, and we begin to let go. In letting go, we can get rid of worries, problems, blockages, and disease. We find a new harmony where clarity and healing can occur of mindbody, and soul.

You can treat yourself to sound massage with Sound Self Care exercises, or you can visit a certified practitioner.

Spa & Beauty Treatment

The Peter Hess® Sound Massage can be used as an add-on or enhancement to cosmetic treatments or other disciplines rooted in overall well-being.

Sound vibrations gently massage all muscles – they loosen, bring relaxation, smooth out wrinkles, and beautify the skin.

These proven methods can be utilized as a complimentary therapy to the following practical applications.

Sound Meditations, Journeys and Concerts, Gong Baths – Group Sessions

Through the act of passive listening to the rich and harmonizing sounds of Gongs, Singing Bowls, Chimes, Sansula, Drums, Monochord, Shruti Box, Crystal Bowls and other overtone instruments as well as natural sounds we can quickly reach a profound state of deep body-mind relaxation to experience inner silence, balance and a heightened state of awareness. When we are no longer limited by our thinking mind, suffering and pain disappear and we are able to move towards a new understanding of our relationships, of nature, and of the profound wisdom that is to be found in stillness.

Stress Management

We live in a day and time where stressors all around us are at an all time high.  Stress, out of control is the number one underlying factor to the onset of disease in the body. “Stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even though you might not realize it. You may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache, your frequent insomnia or your decreased productivity at work. But stress may actually be the culprit.” (The Mayo Clinic ). 

Regular Sound Sessions can help you manage your response to stress by re-training your relaxation response. In a short amount of time of receiving a Sound Treatment your breathing slows down, your heart rate drops, your body temperature sinks and all these amazing neurotransmitters such as dopamine and endorphins are produced to let you quickly sink into a deep and happy state of relaxation. You are dropping deeper and deeper, your busy mind will come to a rest and the never-ending circulating thoughts eventually will calm down.  Your body relaxes, becomes soft and tension, agitation, worries and doubt dissolve and you are able to let go…
Effective Stress Management should not start when you are already suffering from anxiety, sleeplessness, restlessness or bad headaches but as soon as you think you could do with a little time-out for yourself.
You are worth it- your health is your wealth!

Private Sound Cocoon

In a preliminary conversation the
focus, intention and desired outcome of the session are discussed to suit the individual situation of the client. In resonance with this, a private and safe “Sound Cocoon” is created . Bathed and surrounded by the harmonic sounds of various overtone instruments played directly on and around the body the client quickly falls into a deep state of relaxation. In this altered state of consciousness it is easier to let go of negative patterns, anxiety, fear and worries and create room for positive thoughts, feelings and set new personal goals and intentions. In the session the body’s innate self-healing forces and creative energies are activated, leaving the client feeling vibrantly alive and light. This metamorphosis like process can initiate transformation on mental, physical and energetic-spiritual levels.

Peter Hess® Sound Massage

The Peter Hess ® Sound Massage is a treatment where therapeutic Singing Bowls and Fen Gongs are gently played on and around the dressed body. The calming, harmonic sounds and gentle vibrations of the Singing Bowls and Gongs quickly induce a feeling of well-being and facilitate a very effective state of mental and physical relaxation. Just like when you drop a stone in water, the vibrations spread in concentric waves throughout the body. They gently break away any tension, giving it a nurturing massage at a cellular level
