Sound massage 

What is a Sense Studio Sound Massage?

The Peter Hess® Sound Massage is a gentle, non-invasive sound and vibrational treatment, developed by Peter Hess, German physicist and pioneer in this field. He developed this method in the early 1980s, after decades of scientific research, inspired by his experiences in Tibet, India, and Nepal. For the last 30 years, sound massage has been applied as a deep relaxation method in many ways, even as a supportive approach in hospitals, clinics, schools and preschools.

How is a sound massage performed?

At the Sense – Studio for Sound Massage Dubrovnik we use the Peter Hess® Therapy Singing Bowls, specially designed for sound massage, which are carefully placed on and around you. Your sound practitioner will play them gently, using soft mallets. You will feel the sound waves and vibrations travelling through your body, washing away all the stress, and bringing you into a state of profound relaxation. All you need to do is lie fully clothed on a soft massage table and follow the vibrations as they are absorbed by the whole body.

What are the benefits of a sound massage treatment?

Some of the benefits, continuously reported by clients, are listed below. If you are not sure whether a sound massage treatment is the right choice for you check the FAQ below or simply CONTACT US.

Each person’s experience of the Peter Hess® Sound Massage is unique. Because of this, a long list of benefits has been cited over the years. However, several decades of research studies and practical experiences show that, in principle, individuals reach a deep state of relaxation, where they let go of old patterns and find a new joy for life.

Besides quickly shifting you into the state of deep relaxation, sound massage supports and promotes sleep (you may even fall asleep during the treatment), harmonises each individual body cell through sound vibrations, relieves blockages in the body, and reinforces the healing process. It also has a positive impact on one’s self-confidence, creativity and productive energy.

If you are in good health, a sound massage may provide you with more energy and strength needed to complete the daily tasks. Your creativity and productive energy may receive new impulses. On the other hand, if you are suffering from certain health issues, a sound massage may bring you relief, at the same time offering support for your overall health and well-being.

What shouldn’t I expect from a Sound Massage treatment?

Sense Studio offers Peter Hess ® Sound Massage, a scientifically recognised method used as a complementary treatment for relaxation and maintaining one’s well-being. Our sessions are not designed to diagnose, cure, or treat. Instead, they are focused on relaxation with sound and vibrations, which will provide support for your overall health.

I am pregnant. Is it safe to attend a sound massage session?

Sound massage is completely safe during pregnancy. Pregnant women are, in fact, more sensitive. Therefore, they are more aware of and receptive to the gentle sound waves and vibrations. You will feel balanced, calm and grounded. It can even help you reduce fear, and support you mentally for the act of childbirth. The only suggestion is to avoid sound massage sessions during the first trimester.

Are sound massages safe and beneficial for children?

Sound massages are completely safe and very beneficial for children. The harmonic sounds will calm the child’s mind, while the smooth sound vibrations will gently stimulate the body and provide a pleasant relaxation. Rhubin, your sound massage practitioner is specifically trained for working with the little ones, and they absolutely love it.


…experiences from our clients

Amazing experience! I felt like I was being massaged from the inside and the outside at the same time. The vibrations from the singing bowls spreading through my body made me feel like I was levitating. It took less than 5 minutes to get me from stressing around the kid and work and everything else to the perfect nothingland, not a single thought in my mind.

One of the best methods to relax and leave your worries behind. The experience is indescribable with words, my only advice is – try it and you will feel the power of sound!

Unreal experience! I had one massage done for my birthday and it was the most wonderful way to start the year. I can’t wait to go back to Dubrovnik and get more sessions done!!

An out of this world experience, which left me deeply relaxed and light, as if every cell if my body was humming happily. I have taken a package of 5 massages and the experience was more powerful with each new session. My low back pain and headaches subsided – I feel new and strong. Thank you Rhubin!

Recently ended sessions of sound massage at Rubin’s studio. The atmosphere is most relaxing and calming. Well spent time on self indulging. I’ be back soon.

Trying to find the right words to describe my experience after sound massage. Feeling of harmony and returning to my centre, a sense of deep relaxation and grounding at the same time. If your body feels tired and stiff or maybe having difficulty with sleeping and you just need to heal yourself, reduce stress or other physical and emotional issues – go and give it a try. You’ll be surprised for sure.
