My name is Anne Matero and I am the Peter Hess Academy leader in Finland since 2010.

How this wonderful sound relaxation method came to Finland?  I had worked in Greece for 26 years in hectic travel business when I decided that it was time to make a change and move back to Finland in year 2010. Can you guess what I had in my suitcase? It was filled with seeds of sounds and a dream to come true, to open a Peter Hess Academy in Finland.

I was part of the first group of graduated Peter Hess sound massage practitioners when PHA Greece was taking its first baby steps by Anna and Nikos Avramidis 2004-2005. Now when I read my old hand written notes I feel so proud of this fantastic sound method and its great development throughout the years.

Since my first contact with singing bowls in Greece and then studies in Germany I have understood how true it is that we all have our unique sounds of ¨nature¨.  Finland as a country is located north and we speak our unique Finnish language.  My home is in Lapland (which is approx. 1/3 of the area of Finland) and where we have approx. 200 000 inhabitants and same amount of reindeers, huge areas of wild nature, forests and lot of nature waters like lakes, rivers and of course the sea.

Sound Massage – part of the interdisciplinary rehabilitation of seriously ill patients

A look back on more than 10 hears of sound therapy in the HELIOS Clinic Leezen

by guest author Nicole Becker, published in german in the specialist journal Sound-Massage-Therapy, edition number 11/2016, European Association Sound-Massage-Therapy, D-27305 Bruchhausen-Vilsen

Flashback from my childhood

Christmas time 1973, Rostock, at the house for deep-sea fishermen . . . seamen who could not return to their families because their ship was to go out to sea again . . a children’s singing group and the youngest, Nicole Rhem (after the marriage of her parents Nicole Becker), who had just turned 3 years old, being pushed to the front next to a seemingly huge, glowing Christmas tree. “Now sing!“ She sang: “Silver bells . . . “ Hardy men started to tear up, their facial features softened, they even began to laugh. A glance between teacher and child meant that it went well; a caress, deep breath, happiness in the child. Joy, togetherness, emotion. From my perspective today, this is an early conscious memory of how music, singing, sound in the broadest sense, togetherness with others, as well as emotions – sometimes more and sometimes less meaningfully – were always part of my life. My path to becoming an educator and music teacher ultimately led me to music therapy in a neurology and intensive care rehabilitation center for severely ill patients. During the course of my 17 plus years there, the HELIOS Clinic Leezen developed into an acute care facility for early rehabilitation and an interdisciplinary rehabilitation center. It is now the largest weaning center in Germany and the largest clinic providing rehabilitation services in northern Germany.

Die Peter Hess®- Klangmassage in England /The Peter Hess® Sound Massage UK

Veröffentlicht am

You can find the english version below….

von Gastautorin Maja Dethloff, Seaford, East Sussex, England

Im Frühjahr 2017 ergab sich für mich die Möglichkeit, für 5 Wochen nach England, Eastbourne, zu gehen. Ich wollte mein Englisch verbessern und auch ausprobieren, was mit den Klangschalen und der Klangmassage in England möglich ist.

Bei einem Strandspaziergang in Eastbourne beobachtete ich, dass auf der großen Terrasse eines Cafés sehr viele Rollstuhlfahrer mit ihren Begleitern waren. Bei einer Frau dachte ich, dass sie Multiple Sklerose haben könnte. Ich hatte bereits in Berlin mit einer MS-Patientin sehr gute Erfahrungen mit dem Klang machen können. Letztendlich sprach ich mit der Frau im Rollstuhl und ihrer Betreuerin. Die Betreuerin war sehr interessiert und schlug vor, dass ich sie im „Chaseley Trust“, einem Haus für mehrfach Schwerstbehinderte, besuchen sollte.

So kam ich zum „Chaseley Trust“. (mehr …)

Peter Hess® Sound Massage in Sweden/ Peter Hess® klangmassage Sverige

Veröffentlicht am

from guest author Iris Krüger, Peter Hess Academy Sweden

Obs!Texten på svenska finns neråt:

In september 2018 we had the first group for certification to Peter Hess® sound practitioner in Lund/Skåne, very close to where I live with my family since 2006. Exactly this year we got in touch with sound massage in South Tirol for real.

It was for sure love & passion at the first look, it felt like coming home to myself, finding basic trust and inner peace, abundance and relaxation for body , mind and soul. After several years living with sound & yoga in 2013 I attended an intensive training with Conny Henning in Gersfeld / Rhön Germany. Directly after my trainings, my vision has been clear since that. I wanted to bring this treasure to people in Sweden, help them to find “healing” tools for coming closer into homeostasis or balance. (mehr …)

Sound “accompaniment” in the context of palliative care

Veröffentlicht am

from guest author Stephanie Schneider

Through memorable experiences of accompanying patients and their relatives, I have experienced the use of sound massage as a gentle and beneficial addition to palliative care. The intense, precious moments, that I have been able to witness in the hospice accompanying people in the last phase of their life since 2014 have shown me that each sound accompaniment – with all its new challenges and gifts- is like the secret of dying itself: unique.

The sound setting – space of being

With all this uniqueness, there are some basic aspects to the sound setting that I would like to introduce here and complete with case studies.

The starting point

Almost all patients in palliative care like to get involved in the gentle method of sound massage. If a patient wishes to receive sound massage or to know more about this technique, we make an appointment. Sometimes I am also called by the team and asked if I can see a patient for a sound session as soon as possible. Sometimes it is the relatives who contact me, knowing that the patient will appreciate this method of treatment. (mehr …)

The burden of lower back pain – sound massage for a relaxed back by Zeljko Vlahovic

Veröffentlicht am

from author Zeljko Vlahovic

We are all familiar with this story: the many challenges of our careers and everyday life proverbially rest on our shoulders; combine those with repetitive tasks and poor posture, and the result is an aching back. Statistics speak for themselves: one out of two Germans complains of occasional or chronic back pain. It is therefore no surprise that back symptoms are a frequent topic in the practice of sound massage. (mehr …)

Why does Sound Massage enhance well-being?

Veröffentlicht am

author: Dr. Christina Koller

Dear Reader, I would like to invite you to approach the question together with us why sound massage actually enhances well-being. The effect of sounds is always very complex and multilayered, so an overall picture can only be emerged from the consideration of a variety of different aspects. This article and the articles summarized in this magazine are intended to contribute to this.

Applying sounds is not a new thing

Hinduism stipulates “Nada Brahma – the world is sound“. According to this vision, the human being has also developed from sound and harmonious sounds may stipulate him to get him in his natural harmony and order. So sounds had and have always and in many cultures of the world an important meaning in the people’s life, both in ritual and social contexts and also in healing. (mehr …)

Peter Hess Sound Massage as a Complementary Method in Therapeutic Practice

Veröffentlicht am

from guest writer European Assiciation Sound-Massage-Therapy, author: Dr. Christina M. Koller

More and more specialists in therapeutic professional fields are inspired by sound massage, originally developed by Peter Hess as a holistic relaxation method, because the relaxing and stress reducing effect of the harmonious sounds and gentle sound vibrations may be an excellent supplement and / or accompaniment to conventional therapeutic and medical interventions. The DVD “Peter Hess-Klangmassage als komplementäre Methoden in der therapeutischen Praxis (Peter Hess Sound Massage as complementary Methods in therapeutic Practice)“ provides manifold insight into this, where three of the six articles in the DVD describe fields of clinical application.

Mrs. Dr. Glöckner, leading Senior Physician of the gerontopsychiatric department at the AWO specialist hospital Jerichow (near Berlin), was inspired by sound massage when she got to know it for the first time. Since 2010, she and 14 care and social services employees as well as a team of therapists, doctors and psychologists have been integrating sound massage as a concomitant therapy parallel with medical treatment.
