What our customers are saying:
"The Soundwave is such a complete and powerful instrument. The four notes of the tongue drum each address another part of the body. The big tongue drum therefore is a perfect instrument to start a session with. It allows you to 'feel' and tune into the person. By playing the tongue drum you can invite your customer to slow down his breathing and heart rhythm. A steady drum rhythm can bring you and/or your customer in a trance. The monochord is very different from the drum. It creates smooth, rich sound waves that take you on a journey within. You may experience a deep sense of relaxation, see shapes or colors, hear choirs, flutes, horns or other kinds of instruments or feel deeply rooted emotions. I often use the soundwave for people with emotional stress. It helps opening up doors, gates previously kept locked."
