Vibroacoustics-from vibro-to vibrate-and acoustics---to hear-is an innovative technology in which music and/or sound vibrations are felt as well as heard. The sound vibrations are administered through specially-designed speakers or transducers built into a recliner, bean bag chair, mattress, pad, table or other equipment-even a floor and wall! There are numerous benefits to health and well-being from the experience of feeling the sound vibrations as you relax onto vibroacoustic equipment.
Research and clinical programs have reported that vibroacoustics provides a wide variety of mental and physical benefits. Vibroacoustics has been found to reduce stress, decrease the experience of pain, reduce nausea, headache, anxiety, fatigue and depression, calm and soothe restless behavior, relax muscular hyper-tauticity, improve range of motion, lower blood pressure and stimulate lymphatic flow.
Vibroacoustic sessions combine music for relaxation with low frequency pulses selected to resonate in specific areas of the body. Binaural beats may be added with the music to aid in deeper relaxation. This therapy is helpful for acute conditions such as sports injury, muscular strain or post surgery, as well as chronic conditions such as asthma, arthritis, menstrual pain and stress.
