What is a Sound Massage?
The sound massage is an individual treatment during which the sound therapist uses Himalayan bowls placed on the dressed body, as well as therapeutic tuning forks, vibrating energy paths inside the body. Each type of bowl is used in association with the meridians in order to release these pathways on three levels: the physical, the mental and the energetic.
The sound massage evacuates stress and promotes inner balance. It brings an intense feeling of calm and well-being, and helps to regenerate the body's natural defences.
