Sounds have been familiar to us humans since time immemorial. They speak a universal language that connects us across all borders. We perceive them holistically with body, mind and soul. Sound vibrations have an immediate effect and start where words and our mind end.

The development of human hearing in the womb begins a few days after fertilisation and by the end of the fourth month of pregnancy the ear is already fully developed. The unborn child can now also feel through the skin and perceive rhythmic, low-frequency sounds such as the mother's heartbeat or digestive sounds through its skin and hear the high, stimulating frequencies of the mother's voice. This primal sound in the sea of amniotic fluid anchors itself deeply in the subconscious of the expectant mother and gives her warmth, security and safety.

With birth, perceptions and sounds change, the person gradually loses the connection to his or her very own sound. He finds himself in a modern world in which permanent pressure to perform and the feeling of being controlled by others more and more often become a mental and physical challenge. The search for peace, relaxation and inner balance is also the search for our original sound.

The reconnection

Let us remember: deep fundamental tones and a broad, variable overtone spectrum were perceived in the womb through our skin and our hearing. These can be found again in the sounds and vibrations of archaic instruments rich in overtones such as singing bowls, monochords or gongs. During a relaxing sound treatment, their sounds and vibrations lead every cell of our body back into the deeply familiar, well-conserved primordial existence.

Origin of sound therapy/massage

Today's sound massage is based on ancient knowledge about the effects of sounds, which were already used in India more than 5000 years ago as part of the Vedic healing art. In the eastern conception everything is sound and therefore vibration. Nada Brahma stands for that which is incomprehensible behind everything. So every human being is sound and possesses its own vibration pattern.

Long before Buddhism spread to Tibet, the Bon shamans living there understood how to make singing bowls, which they used in healing rituals and to invoke divinity. The German pedagogue and physics engineer Peter Hess developed the sound massage known today based on his decades of research in the field of healing sounds.

The effect of sound therapy/massages

Sound massage is a holistic relaxation method that works on a physical, emotional and energetic level. Through rhythmically uniform, basic and overtone-rich vibrations, body, mind and soul experience a deep, harmonising, regenerating and at the same time vitalising effect. The gentle sounds and vibrations awaken a feeling of security and safety, a deep trust, in which pleasant letting go and regenerating deep relaxation become possible. The body goes into resonance with the sounds and vibrations that touch it, blockages and hardenings can be gently released. In the process, a new order can be created, we gain access to the use of our own resources and thus strengthen our self-healing powers.

The most important effects of sound therapy/massage:

  • Holistic balance on the natural self-regulation
  • Breathing is deepened
  • The thought carousel can be released, the brain hemispheres are synchronised
  • Body awareness is strengthened, well-being is promoted
  • Self-conception, basic trust and presence are deepened
  • In deep relaxation, tensions and blockages can be released
  • The energy system is being regulated
  • The immune system can be strengthened by balancing
  • Regeneration and self-healing powers are strengthened

The limits of sound work

Sound therapy/massage is an alternative relaxation method that is used in addition to conventional medicine. It does not replace a doctor's consultation and is not a medical treatment. The specialist is responsible for the treatment of physical and/or psychological indications. Prescribed therapies and/or medication should only be used and/or discontinued in consultation with the specialist treating the patient.
