feeltone stands for "feel the sound " - sound is experienced by far more than the ear. We can feel vibrations, our emotional worlds are fired up in an instant and we instantly overcome everyday life.

Activation of the self-healing powers

By starting to create sounds on our feeltone instruments completely without intention, you will notice that the hamster wheel of thoughts changes. As soon as you let go, hear the sound, feel it and slowly sounds, tones, melodies develop under your hands, thoughts fade away and your attention is focused on the momentary, on the unexpected and the special. Both halves of your brain come together, your heartbeat changes and you can no longer hold your thoughts. And already your self-healing powers are activated. Our cells have knowledge from over 6 million years of how to heal our body itself. The moment we let go of our intellectual concepts, we surrender to this knowledge and the body can realign itself, the music supports the dance of the cells through vibration.

Music Therapy, Sound Healing and Spiritual Growth

Music therapy is taught in many universities around the world. Its cradle can be found in South America, where healing knowledge from all continents came together and blended over the centuries. Today, there is a wide variety of additional musical training for many areas of health care. It serves to maintain, restore and promote physical and mental health. The emphasis is on music-accompanied therapy.

Since the beginning, the art of healing has been inseparable from music; only the industrial revolution has separated the two. However, many medical families have preserved this art. The fact that today the art of healing seems to be reduced to Excel spreadsheets deprives it of a crucial component in the healing mission, which of course can hardly be controlled.

Sound Healing grew out of the same sources as music therapy, but is more dedicated to the natural effects of sounds and vibrations, active music making, and the spiritual aspects of the effects of mathematics and physics on the holistic body and spiritual mind. There are understandably few standardization possibilities in this discipline and the ephemeral métier of sound.

Our experience is that, especially in monochord playing circles - much like choirs, when many natural harmonics are heard in conjunction with monotonous tapestries of sound, there is inevitably a special level of solemnity. Many participants, regardless of their religious socialization, report experiencing spirituality. Throughout the world, sound is and has been used in religious contexts and occasions.

international sound education

Martina Gläser-Böhme, the wife of Ingo Böhme, the founder of feeltone, started in 2003 to develop her own training for monochord playing and sound massage. Today she is the only one who offers a profound and deep playing and feeling training for monochords and sound furniture worldwide. Our wish behind this is not only to bring instruments to the market, but also to accompany the customer as good as possible to unfold the full potential of the instrument as well as their own creativity.


40 years ago, in 1982, Ingo Böhme started to build instruments. For years he traveled through many countries collecting instruments, developing them further, importing them and distributing them in Germany. His core competence is the slotted drums, which, with increasingly larger models, were soon suitable for sitting on and lying on. Already at that time (under the name BOING by Ingo Böhme) he observed the healing effect of sound, especially of deep sound tongues on players and clients. More and more music therapists began to use the large slit drums in their work.

Then, when monochords began to be used in production, the term feeltone, "feel the sound," or as people without English language skills like to say, "lots of sound," soon coined itself. This then gave rise to the sound wave, which includes both instruments, the monochord and the slit drum. Today, it is mainly the monochords that people around the world feel.
