Neuronal Effects of Peter Hess Sound Massage

Veröffentlicht am

guest author Dr. med. Kerstin van den Dool (formerly Gommel)

In the research project described below, Dr. Kerstin van den Dool examines to what extent the subjective experience during a sound massage can also be objectively measured. Through measurements taken during a sound massage – in the course of an intensive training week as well as at the concluding seminar 100 days thereafter –  neuronal effects of sound massage of the participants could be established via EEG spectrum analysis as well as measurements of visual and auditory classification thresholds and compared to a control group for the first time.

The sound massage developed by Peter Hess thirty years ago continues to be further developed to this day. Numerous observations from practice by users and clients are consistently integrated. In 2009, a pilot study of the neuronal effects of sound massage examined the following questions:

  • Can the subjectively perceived effects of a sound massage be objectively measured?
  • Which measuring methods are applicable?
  • What is the effect of a sound massage?

A pilot study of the European Association for Sound Massage Therapy e.V. in cooperation with the Dr. Tanja Grotz Institute

Authors: Dr. Phil. Christina M. Koller & Dr. Tanja Grotz

Executive Summary

For the first time, the effect of Peter Hess™ sound massage with regard to stress management and body image was investigated scientifically. This article is a summary of the complete study which can be ordered through the professional association website www. fachverband-klang.de (at the moment only in German).
Peter Hess™ sound massage is primarily a holistic relaxation method, and as such uses the sound of singing bowls to prevent and reduce stress and thereby reinforce health.
This is scientific proof in a study of 201 subjects. Within this examination, carried out by European Professional Association for Sound Massage Therapy (Europäischer Fachverband Klang-Massage-Therapie e.V.) in cooperation with Dr. Tanja Grotz Institute (Kollnburg), participating women and men aged 21 to 78 obtained five basic sound massages, given by trained Peter Hess sound massage practitioners on a weekly basis.

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.
