My story

Rhubin Herceg, Your Sound Massage
Practitioner Dubrovnik

The owner of the Sense Studio, Rhubin Herceg, is the first, and currently the only Certified Peter Hess® Sound Massage Practitioner in Dubrovnik, trained in the use of sound vibrations in a therapeutic setting by the Peter Hess® Institute in Zagreb. She has completed all four levels and the closing supervision weekend, encompassing a total of 208 hours of the Peter Hess training. In other words, she is professionally qualified to provide sound massage for deep relaxation, using the Peter Hess® Therapy Singing Bowls.

She fell in love with the sound of Tibetan singing bowls and gong on her trip to Bali in 2014. Since then, she has been constantly broadening her knowledge of sound healing therapies, which she uses during sound massage and sound bath sessions at the Sense Studio.

If you are planning on coming to the studio with your child, you will be happy to hear that Rhubin is also a certified Peter Hess® KLIK practitioner for children from three to five years old, and older. 

However, this is only a small portion of her creative powers. If you are wondering why the Sense Studio looks picture perfect, it is because its owner and your sound massage practitioner is actually a fashion designer, who graduated from the University of Zagreb’s Faculty of Textile Technology, after completing the art high school in Dubrovnik.

Rhubin is also a 500 RYT Yoga Alliance accredited teacher, trained in India, Europe and Indonesia in various styles, including Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa. She is at the helm of a successful Dubrovnik-based yoga studio We DU Yoga together with her sister, Dalia Gjaja. When she finds the time between sound massage sessions and yoga classes, she creates beautiful paintings and jewellery

About Sense Studio for Sound Massage Dubrovnik

Sense Studio is truly an oasis of calm in Dubrovnik. This intimate sound massage studio on the first floor of an old stone building has a beautiful sea view over the Gruž Bay.

Even if you are staying on one of the Elaphiti Islands, you will be there in no time. The regular ferry stops just a few metres from the studio. 

Although the studio is located on the main street of the Gruž harbour, all the noises are kept outside. The only sounds you will hear are those of the therapeutic instruments played by your sound massage practitioner Rhubin. Every single detail has been thought out with the aim of relaxing, reviving and healing both body and soul. Sense Studio is simply perfect for unwinding in the busy city of Dubrovnik. 

Testimonials

…experiences from our clients

Amazing experience! I felt like I was being massaged from the inside and the outside at the same time. The vibrations from the singing bowls spreading through my body made me feel like I was levitating. It took less than 5 minutes to get me from stressing around the kid and work and everything else to the perfect nothingland, not a single thought in my mind.

An out of this world experience, which left me deeply relaxed and light, as if every cell if my body was humming happily. I have taken a package of 5 massages and the experience was more powerful with each new session. My low back pain and headaches subsided - I feel new and strong. Thank you Rhubin!

Trying to find the right words to describe my experience after sound massage. Feeling of harmony and returning to my centre, a sense of deep relaxation and grounding at the same time. If your body feels tired and stiff or maybe having difficulty with sleeping and you just need to heal yourself, reduce stress or other physical and emotional issues - go and give it a try. You’ll be surprised for sure.
