In the early 1980s, Peter Hess a German engineer became interested in ‘Radiesthesia’ (the science of vibrational fields in the human body) embarking on a life changing study on the effects of sound, in particular traditional music, on the mind and body of people in Tibet and Nepal. This led to his work with ‘singing bowls’ and the creation of Peter Hess Sound Massage – as practiced by Christine Heckel.
Hess learnt from ancient Tibetan teachings that the world and the people who populate it, are made through vibrations. In fact, the holy mantras of daily prayers are regarded as the most important sounds in Tibet, as they produce rhythmic vibrations through words. Working on the understanding that each person is created with a unique sound resulting in a different personality, it stands to reason that sound and indeed vibration, is the key to health and harmony.
Similarly, according to Hess’ research, people in Nepal believe that ‘a man who vibrates harmoniously is healthy. If discordant sounds creep in, he loses his balance and falls ill. A sick man who listens to harmonious sounds will start to heal.’
Each Sound Therapy session is designed to tune into your body’s vibrations, generating sounds that will communicate with the cells throughout your body. Your physical health and well-being are both very important, as is all kinds of noise which can affect your nervous system, from loud rock music which could cause you stress to soothing relaxing music which encourages your cells to expel toxins .
Brain waves are one of the most important tools when it comes to healing both the mind and body. Using singing bowls helps the brain achieve waves which will promote self healing and harmony, which can be achieved after a sound therapy massage.
Singing bowls are placed on or close to your dressed body and tapped gently with a felt mallet. Whereby, the gentle vibrations and sounds create an induced feeling of relaxation and well-being.
The vibrations could correct your balance and provide a feeling of inner strength, harmony and energy. If you are suffering and have a physical, mental or psychological problem, Sound Massage could provide you with relief from stress, anxiety and possibly pain.
This is achieved by
- Deep relaxation through soothing sounds rich in overtones.
- Massaging and harmonising your body cells via sound and vibration.
- Helping to remove tension and blockages.
- Providing a pleasant tingling sensation.
- Increasing a feeling of positivity and creativity.
- Helping you to let go of the old and embrace the new.
