Comprehensive Checklist: Basic Equipment for Sound Massage

Our checklist gives you a comprehensive overview of the equipment and tools you can use around a sound massage. In our list you’ll find inspiration, whether you’re a beginner, planning to become more professional, or have been working with sound for a while.

Is the checklist also relevant for sound massage beginners?

If you want to start with sound massage for the first time, you don’t need much: A universal bowl and a mallet are already sufficient to try out different areas of application and to experience the effect of the sounds on yourself, or to make it possible for others to experience them. Whether you need additional equipment depends entirely on your or the sound receiver’s wishes and needs. Our checklist is meant to serve as inspiration and show you ways to customize your sound massage practice.
