Sound Congress 2022​

Boosting health ∙ Encouraging recovery ∙ Supporting therapy

The sounds of singing bowls and the Sound Massage quickly lead to comforting relaxation, during which body, mind and soul can regenerate. This has a positive effect on stress, anxiety and pain, making sound treatments a perfect, complementary treatment in health care and in a therapeutic/medical context.

At the Sound Congress 2022 you will experience exciting lectures and inspiring practical forums on how to apply and effectively integrate singing bowls for yourself, your relatives, or in your professional work in a clinic or practice. The atmospheric sound modules and sound concerts throughout the congress promise pure sound enjoyment! And of course there will also be special congress offers from Hess Klangkonzepte.

The hybrid format gives you the option to either be there LIVE in Gersfeld/Rhön or to participate ONLINE from the comfort of your home.

There is a translation into English.

BONUS: Participants of all days will receive the recordings of the online format + 3 FURTHER PRACTICE FORUMS for streaming for 3 months!

NOTE: In case of legally binding 2G regulation, we reserve the right to hold the congress in the offered online format only. In this case, the live tickets will be transferred to online tickets and the ticket difference will be refunded.
