This course offers an energetic, scientific, anatomical and physical perspective of the Tibetan Singing bowl massage. It explores the effects produced on the several levels of the human organism, as well as how it influences the energetic, mental and emotional state of the individual. You will learn to perform up to 6 sessions of Tibetan Singing bowl massage in this course! Scroll down to read our student testimonials.


THEORY: Before starting the hands-on practice of the massage, (in this case the “bowls-on”), it is important that you are familiar with the effects of sound and music: the resonance, harmonics, vibrations, waves, tone, volume, tempo, harmony, etc. You should also be familiar with the effects this sound massage has on the body on different levels (hearing, cerebral, anatomical and energy). In order to explain the energy system that is important during the singing bowl massage, we will explain it using the energy theory of Tibetan Medicine,  describing the Chakras, energy points, etc. You will also learn various diagnosis methods such as intuition, hearing and energy. The first part of the course covers the theoretic aspects that  give you a rich foundation for practicing the Tibetan singing bowl massage.

PRACTICE: In this section you will find several videos describing the Tibetan Singing Bowl Massagestep-by-step. Every step includes an explanatory text (describing the massage technique, the application manner, the benefits and effects, the bowls used, etc.), an illustration with the direction and placement of the bowls, and a video clip where you can see exactly how the technique is performed.

VIDEO LECTURES  & INTERVIEWS: In addition to the theory and practice, this course is full of videos with interviews, master´s classes given by famous teachers, pictures, illustrations and all the material necessary to facilitating the understanding of the Tibetan Singing Bowl Massage.

The material was clear and I felt they were well worth it! I will be looking forward to taking more courses with them in the future and highly recommend. Any seasoned therapist will find good content here and will recognize ethical procedures as well as terminology. Also, a great way for beginners to get professional and accurate information as well! Also, if you need assistance, you will receive it, and it will be friendly and positive! Thank you” – Shawna Timmerman, LMT.
