Sound is a very familiar feeling to us all, reminiscent of our time in the womb. As well as "hearing" the sounds, you will "feel" the sound waves as vibrations, originating from the singing bowls, gong or instruments, rippling across your skin and deeper into your tissues. You will also feel a deep sense of relaxation throughout your physical body and a stillness of your mind.
A traditional Peter Hess Sound Massage lasts 45mins, with 15 mins required before and after the session for conversation and de-briefing
(Approx 1 hr, 15 mins total).
Customised Sound Sessions (either shorter for children, or longer for specialised treatment) are also available.
As the sound instruments are placed upon the clothed body, soft comfortable clothing is recommended. You will be cocooned with additional rugs and cushions for comfort.
Sound is not recommended for those with cardiac arrhythmia or a pacemaker, nor women in the first trimester (12 weeks) of pregnancy.
The number of Sound Sessions is determined with each individual, based on pre-existing conditions, current state of health and intentions for future well-being. However, it has been proven that a succession of at least three Sound Treatments provides lasting benefits.
As a treatment modality, Sound is extremely portable and versatile. Sessions can be given to individuals, couples or small groups. Sound is also adaptable to home, hospital, school, rehabilitation and community settings. I am willing to travel to accommodate wherever possible.
