Peter Hess® Academy Australia



Educational Sound Massage (ESM)

As part of your Peter Hess® Sound Massage Practitioner Qualification

To become a fully qualified Peter Hess® Sound Massage (PHSM) Practitioner, it is a requirement for you to experience three Sound Massages given by certified Peter Hess® Sound Massage Practitioners. 

These Educational Sound Massages (ESM) have to be completed and submitted to your teacher two weeks before the date of your Final Supervision Course. 

The qualified training and the professional application of the PHSM are very important to Peter Hess as the founder of our method.

In the course of the quality assurance of the PHSM method but also in the clear differentiation from other sound providers, it is of great importance that the ESM is given as part of the overall training by an experienced PHSM Practitioner. The ESM sessions are to take place in a professional environment and reflect the content in the Levels I-IV courses you have completed.

Aims of ESM
The aims of the three ESMs are as follows:

  • To ensure that you are able to provide professional PHSM sessions and treatment room for your future clients.

  • The ESM requirement is not to be used to critique the Practitioners. The aim is for you to learn and experience how a professional PHSM is conducted.

  • For you to experience PHSM as a client in a professional setting.

  • For you to be aware and take note of your experience receiving the PHSM sessions (eg sensations, observations, changes in physical and mental states).

  • For you to take note of the setup of the treatment room (eg set up of bowls, atmosphere, temperature of the room etc).

​What to expect from an ESM?

Duration 1.5 hours:

  • 15 min preliminary discussion with the ESM Practitioner (eg. completing the client form and discuss your treatment needs)

  • 60 min individual Sound Massage

  • 15 min reflection of the session with the ESM Practitioner (eg. questions and discussion)

  • Price $110 per session (standard fee across Australia) 

  • The ESM Practitioner will be available to answer further questions for two weeks after your session.​

Please talk to your Peter Hess® Sound Massage teacher if you have any questions. All procedures will be explained during the Level III/IV training.
