Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy (VST) incorporates both music therapy and sound frequencies. VST is the transduction of both sound and music through specially design environment arranged in such a way that the sound currents with its vibration travel directly through the body.
It is an advanced relaxation method utilizing special designed Therapeutic Singing bowls directly on the fully clothed body or near to the body. VST is a structured modality that uses these ancient tools in a modern clinical setting. Sound and vibration can be used to re-tune health.
The strong and gentle vibration from the bowls in unison with the soothing tones is able to resonate deeply to the body and beneath the layers of tissues and muscles. When there is a deep relaxation through soothing, resonant sound, the body is effected on a cellular level, opening up the flow of energy and help the body to align with the core health. VST is considered to be one of the most gentle and non invasive forms of therapy.
This particular technique is wonderful for people who need to relax, to desensitize their stress and anxiety but don’t want to talk about it and let the bowls do their work.
While receiving relaxation through VST muscle tension decreases, blood pressure goes down, the mind becomes calm, clear, and the harmful effects of prolonged stress and anxiety are counteracted. Personal transformation occurs naturally, incredibly, and amazingly.
Here are the benefits of VST:
- Quickly introducing deep meditative states
- Reducing depression and sleep issues
- Easing blockages and tension
- Brain entertainment
- Reduction in stress and anxiety
- Raising focus, concentration, and gaining a clear mind
- Calming the mind, body, and spirit in conjunction
- Stimulating life force flow in the body, improve immunity
- Heightening intuition and perception
- Boosting energy and creativity
- Synchronizing the brain hemispheres
- Remove barriers between your “Self” and your fullest expression of Love.
- Dissolving and releasing the dis-empowering past stories
- Aligning “Self” with “Source” so that Spirit can express through you, AS you
Neither science nor philosophy can even begin to explain how it is possible that mind, consciousness or spirit could influence matter or energy (subtle or electromagnetic). Nevertheless, the evidence is there, demanding explanation. (David Feinstein)
As I understand the concept of qi (or ki, as it’s called in Japanese), it’s not just energy. It’s really an intelligent energy, with consciousness attached to it. In other words, in Eastern philosophy, they never suffered a Cartesian split. So when they’re thinking about an energy field around the body, it’s not just physical electromagnetic or biophotonic fields, it’s imbued with mind. It’s something much more profound and not quite part of Western science. (Beverly Rubik)
Since we have consciousness, it is not unlikely, (according to the fractal nature of nature) that consciousness — a greater consciousness than ours of course, is everywhere. (Maureen Lockhart)
Ultimately, science is coming to see what mystics have been saying for millennia– the universe is one unified field of varying frequencies, the arrangement of which determines the information present. The subtle field around the body is a field of potential, of energy, and information–in other words, a field of mind and consciousness.
Science currently understands how the principles of resonance and entrainment operate in music or sound therapy. It is significant to see how these principles, as a type of psycho-spiritual enhancement, can be applied for the therapeutic benefits of using Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy.
