Sound Mind Sound Body Massage

A full body massage is enhanced with healing sounds and vibrations by Peter Hess singing bowls, specifically designed for sound massage. The singing bowls are placed on the body while a certified therapist manipulates the bowls to create a blissful vibration and soothing sound that is harmonic and void of frequency jumping, ambient noises and unpleasant secondary tones. Peter Hess singing bowls are an alloy of twelve metals. Vibration quality of the sound from a bowl is mainly determined by high-quality bronze. The bowls also have additional metals with health benefits, which include:

  • Zinc – Efficient against states of stress
  • Meteor iron – Supports energy and activity
  • Bismuth – Supports the digestive system
  • Galena – Against arthritis
  • Pyrite – Strengthens the lungs

Healing through sound and vibration is known to reduce stress, improve concentration, reduce blood pressure, improve immunity, increased blood circulation, diminished joint pain, synchronise the brain hemisphere, remove mental and emotional negativity and enhance creativity.
