Vibroacoustic Therapy or Sound Therapy
Release of Nashville uses Vibroacoustic therapy with colon hydrotherapy services as well as reflexology services. Vibroacoustic therapy is simply sound frequency used through our treatment tables to allow you to feel sound throughout your body as well as producing audible sounds which wraps around and cocoons you. It does not have to be loud for you to feel it (although it can be loud if you like).
Vibroacoustic Therapy uses low frequencies and therapeutic music delivered through special speakers called transducers. As a person’s body has contact with the embedded speakers, the music is sent from the source into the transducers and then is felt by the body as vibration and heard by the ears as sound. The vibro-tactile input stimulates nerve bundles along the spine, up into the brainstem and then through the limbic system. In addition, the sound stimulates the medulla in the brain stem and activates the auditory nerve that connects with all the muscles of the body. These reactions signal the body to relax and flood the brain with mood lifting chemicals. In addition, the low frequencies also cause a relaxation of the tissues, and a dilation of blood vessels and an opening of the lymphatic pathways which in turn increases the body’s ability to heal.
A few of the positive responses to Vibroacoustic Therapy may include:
• Decreases Blood Pressure
• Slows Heart Rate
• Reduced Pain
• Reduced Anxiety
• Better Regulated Limbic System
• Increased Circulation
• Relaxes Muscles
• Shortened Healing Periods
• Increased Sleep Quality
• Increased Sense of Calm and Peacefulness
When Vibroacoustic Therapy is used in conjunction with other modalities, such as essential oils, Reflexology and Reiki, this
creates what “Sensory Resonance”, where the individual is bathed in harmonic frequencies that integrate the whole brain and body into a state of peace and calm. When the mind and body are in a calm state, all kinds of health benefits can occur.
1. The Limbic System is signaled to return to a calm state, and over time helps the body to become better at self-regulation and more resilient to stressors.
2. The Relaxation Response is activated, which creates a cascade of positive physical and emotional health benefits.
3. The heart rate slows and heart rate variability (HRV) improves, which is an indicator of stress resilience.
4. Blood pressure lowers, which reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack.
5. Muscles relax, which in turn can reduce pain from tension and spasms.
6. Pain lessens through a combination of increased relaxation and an increase of “happy” hormones.
7. Circulation increases, which nourishes the cells and organs.
In a day when people are seeking healthy alternatives for combating stress, pain, and illness, we should reconsider the Ancient wisdom of vibro-tactile input. Modern technology now makes it possible for this healing modality to be put into practice and available to a wider population.
