What is Vibroacoustic Therapy?
If you haven’t heard of Vibroacoustic Therapy (VAT), you’re not alone. It’s a holistic sound healing treatment that uses vibrations of pure tones, called pulsed frequency sine waves, which is highly effective in helping people recovering from addiction.
The range of frequency (measured in Hertz) influences how sound therapy is used.
Stimulates blood circulation, reduces muscle spasms, improves sleep, reduces blood pressure and aids in the healing of sports injuries.
Alleviates symptoms of asthma and other bronchial conditions including Cystic Fibrosis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Relieves most lower back pain and menstrual cramps. Reduces climactic problems and helps soften scar tissue.
Reduces tension in neck and shoulder muscles and heals ‘frozen shoulder’.
Vibroacoustic sound therapy changes sound frequencies into vibrations. This is achieved by customizing a recliner that is embedded with a transducer, or speaker, to deliver the treatment.
How the Science of Vibroacoustic Therapy Works
The body is 70% water and Vibroacoustic sound vibrations are five times more effective because they travel through water, rather than air. The treatment is an excellent way to achieve deep, cellular healing.
According to an article in Wake Up World the body’s cells react and interact with these vibrations, the following results occur:
• Nerve bundles of the spine and brain stem activate the limbic system. The body relaxes, Mood elevates.
• Low frequency vibrations dilate the blood vessels, which in turn, open lymphatic pathways to help eliminate toxins from the body.
From Ancient Vibro-Tactile Healing to Vibroacoustic Therapy
The Aboriginal people of Australia used sound vibration as a natural form of healing. They hollowed out limbs of eucalyptus trees to create wind instruments called didgeridoos. The person playing the didgeridoo and the person hearing it felt the power of the low-frequency, healing vibrations. Other methods of sound healing involve singing bowls, gongs, wind instruments, drums, and bells.
The Benefits of Vibroacoustic Therapy for Addiction Recovery
Vibroacoustic Therapy helps reduce stress for individuals who suffer from addiction by reducing feelings of anger and agitation. Similarly, they may have trouble with concentration, anxiety or poor judgment during the withdrawal and healing process. Vibroacoustic sound therapy helps create a feeling of calm and well-being and also helps with:
