Welcome

My name is Miriam Burger. My roots are Asian & European, and I grew up in Germany and Austria. I have always lived with & in different cultures, places, and careers.  In my professions in Music and Medicine, I observed how pervasive imbalances are in our society. This led me to search for new horizons and new solutions. I delved into philosophy, health phenomena, and field research and traveled parts of the world to collect authentic experience firsthand, and implement new and ancient methods and wisdom into my work. These processes resulted in the founding and building of SOUND AND HEALTH. Sound And Health strives to live, share and develop these insights.

Sound And Health offers a platform and point of reference for sound, music, culture, and medicine. We support health literacy and definitions of health towards prevention and beneficial lifestyle choices - striving for a culture of reconnection, transformation, and conscious growth to foster wellbeing and sustainable societal development in an increasingly complex world.

As a professional Violinist & Musician, and Sound Artist, I have worked in the Creative Arts on diverse international projects for the last 17 years, ranging from orchestras, rock-pop bands up to the Zurich, NYC, and L.A. film industry; 

As a Medical Doctor, I have clinically worked in Vienna and Zurich, in Pain Therapy, Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, and Public Health, with foci in Mental Health, Mind-Body Medicine, and Global Health, and Sound Medicine.
