Peter Hess® Small Heart
This singing bowl, with higher pitched sounds, activates mainly the heart area and upper back. Here, too, different mallets are used to optimize the sound for particular sections of the body. The sound of this singing bowl is often described as “clear and fair.”
The small heart bowl originally was made for work with children; however, it can – during an individually designed sound massage – also be an asset when working with adults. The heart bowl's frequency range, depending on the mallet used, stretches from 200 to 1,200 Hz. Since the heart area is a very sensitive part of the body, this bowl was designed to allow for more gentle vibrational characteristics.
The sound level of a singing bowl ranges – depending on its type, the mallets and on how vigorously it is played – from 50 to 100 dB. The relatively high number of dB that can be reached is the reason why singing bowls should be played very gently during sound massage, especially when used near the head and ears.
