vibroacoustic therapy 

Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) is an evidenced based treatment that combines sound and vibration to promote healing on a mental, emotional, and physical level. 

VAT uses low frequencies and therapeutic music, which are delivered through special speakers called transducers. As the music is sent into the transducers, it is felt in the body as vibration and heard by the ears as sound. The vibration stimulates nerves along the spine, in the brain stem, and through the limbic system. The sound stimulates the medulla in the brain stem and activates the auditory nerve that connects to the muscles in the body. 

These frequencies and vibrations cause the muscles to relax, the blood vessels to dilate, and the lymphatic pathways to open, leading to an increase of mood lifting chemicals in the brain, cellular regeneration, and an increase in the body's ability to heal.

VAT sessions are 45, 60, or 90 minutes long. The length of time and number of sessions required may vary based on each individual client. 

VAT is ideal for clients who are dealing with issues including, but not limited to:

  • Mental health issues including depression, anxiety, addiction, autism, PTSD, ADD, and ADHD

  • Neurodegenerative diseases including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's​

  • Hypotension, hypertension, COPD, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases
