In 1984, the former physical technology engineer, Peter Hess, began to develop what today is referred to as the Peter Hess Sound Massage and Sound Methods. In his search for alternative healing methods he traveled on more than one occasion to India, Nepal, and Tibet. It was during these trips when he was first introduced to healing with sound. Today, the Peter Hess® Sound Massage is used successfully by many professionals in the fields of education, counseling, therapy and medicine.

The Peter Hess® Therapy Singing Bowl with all its vibration and sound features was particularly designed for sound massage. In this context, the frequency range and vibration characteristics of the singing bowl required for the corresponding parts of the body are of particular importance. Vibration quality and the sound of the bowls are mainly determined by high-quality bronze (copper and tin). Moreover, further ten metals in homeopathic potencies are added to the singing bowls. For this purpose, a piece of an old singing bowl is melted and added.
