Vibroacoustic Therapy Tools

CLICK HERE to see our full selection of tables, chairs, and vibrational tools.

For all of our vibrational tools, the sound normally comes from a CD player or other sound source, which is split between the device (for the physical vibration) and headphones, a stereo system, or a 5.1 surround sound system (all are available for purchase, if needed). The volume of the music and the amount of vibration in the table can be controlled separately -- both easily adjustable to the comfort level of the recipient.We also can mount transducers or speakers in walls or floors, if desired.
The devices use the highest quality speakers available.

Sound Lounge
Especially designed to enhance the effects of vibroacoustic therapy, our lounges use memory foam to create a full body print for optimum comfort and maximum contact and transmission of the vibrations into the body. The powerful transducers embedded in the foam send healing low frequency vibrations throughout every part of your body. The Sound Lounge may also be used without the frame as a mat on the floor or on top of a massage table.

 

Sound Table
A Sound Table is a massage table with powerful low frequency transducers mounted in sacred geometry ratios on the bottom of the table. As a result, the table acts like a speaker, vibrating healing low frequencies throughout every cell of your body. The ideal application is to be vibrated by the table while receiving a massage. Low frequency transducers may also be mounted on any existing massage table.

 

Bass Pod
Powerful handheld low frequencies applied to a specific part of the body.

Sound Pillows
Pillows embedded with speakers, used alone or placed on the body while using the Sound Lounge or Table for a totally immersive experience.

 


Music Production Techniques and Healing Frequency CDs

The sounds and music that are played during a vibroacoustic treatment are the most important aspects of the sound healing therapy. We are the #1 seller of this type of music because of the experience and techniques developed by David Gibson, the founder and director of Globe Sound and Consciousness Institute in San Francisco. David’s CDs are produced according to ancient and modern science from the field of Sound Healing and Therapy, and years of experience and research on the physics of sound. His music is being used in hospitals around the country (including Massachusetts General in Boston and U.C. Medical Center in San Francisco) for its beneficial effects on the body, mind and Spirit of patients.

David is uniquely qualified to create transformative Sound Healing music because of his extensive background in both Audio Recording and Sound Healing. As a physics major at U.C. Berkeley he developed a holistic understanding of the underlying structure of sound. After 40 years of recording and producing music for major artists, he wrote the #1 selling books in both the fields of Audio and Sound Healing -- “The Art of Producing,” and “The Art of Mixing”; and, “The Complete Guide to Sound Healing.”

David has created music tuned to specific archetypal frequencies that are more readily accepted by the body and known to have specific effects physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Based on this science his techniques include 100% focus of intention (which is embedded in the music), ancient tuning systems and modes, and music tuned to the tempo of specific breath and heart rates. All of his music includes binaural beats specifically calibrated to entrain the brain into a variety of brainwave states.

David also uses aspects of the Mozart Effect research to create focus – techniques that use high frequency content and constant change in various musical parameters. On other projects, he uses repetition to put the analytical left brain to sleep so the creative right brain can take over. Information from the research of Alfred Tomatis on the ear are also infused in the music. David has spent many years refining the precise type of bass sounds used to vibrate the body (including exact sound envelopes that feel the best). This allows the bass to be maximized on the body in a way that feels soothing and natural. He is fanatical about creating a consistent musical and energetic flow of energy that taps into the deeper rhythms of the human biosystem and is in alignment with the mathematical patterns found in natural flowing systems in nature and Spirit. But most importantly, David brings in the subtle frequencies and energies of love and incorporates them throughout the productions.

All of our music is at www.SoundHealingCenter.com/music.html
For each CD there is extended free sample you can listen to.

Cymatic Frequencies
David has also produced a series of CDs that utilize the most well researched healing frequencies in the field. These are frequencies instead of music, and are played on specific parts of the body or for particular body systems to facilitate healing. We have the following CDs available:
• Muscles
• Nerves, Tendons and Ligaments
• Bones
• Chronic Fatigue
• Digestion
• Arthritis
• Brain
• Respiratory System
• Endocrine System
• Circulatory System
• Asthma
• Depression Relief

Our Sound Pods, Vests, Mask/Caps, and Sandals are the ideal transmission devices for these CDs. Check out the CDs and testimonials at www.SoundHealingCenter.com/musicma.html

“Pythagoras based musical education on certain melodies and rhythm that exercised a healing,
a purifying influence on the human actions and passions,
restoring ‘Pristine Harmony’ of the soul’s faculties.
He applied the same means to the curing of diseases of both body and mind.”
- Porphyry (233-309) disciple of Pythagoras

 

The Power of Sound for Health and Well-Being

Everything is vibration. All parts of our bodies including our emotions are made of frequencies. When you understand the laws of physics that explain how one vibration affects another you gain the Power of Sound to change the world physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This means there is potential to transform any diseased part of the body, entrain our brain for more restful sleep, more focus and enhanced creative ability, and most importantly to bring us into a high state of emotional awareness and harmony with nature and Spirit. Olympic athletes have been using Vibroacoustic therapies for years in Sweden, Norway and Finland with proven results.

All of this means more health, performance and productivity.

The vibrational tools we offer have been proven effective through both experience and clinical research. There are two specific applications. First is preparation for an event -- creating a relaxed state in the body with extreme focus of the mind. The Sound Lounge with specific music that incorporates brainwave entrainment is ideal for this application. The second application is after an event for relaxation, and pain or injuries. The Sound Lounge is effective for general or systemic issues, and the Bass Pod allows therapeutic frequencies to be applied to specific parts of the body.

According to a basic law of physics, which forms the core concept behind all sound healing, a strong vibration will cause a weaker vibration to vibrate at the stronger frequency. This explains how disruptive energy in our outer environment (electricity, cell phones, stressed people around us) or inner stressors (fear and anxiety) overpower our body and emotions, entraining them into incoherent types of vibrations that interfere with the natural functioning of our body systems.

Powerful harmonious frequencies, sounds and music overcome the chaotic influences, stabilizing and strengthening the natural equilibrium of our physical body—in cells, nerves, tendons, muscles, bones, organs, and areas of the brain -- harmonizing our biological systems back to homeostasis. In this balanced state, we return to optimal functioning. This is also the state where the body heals the most efficiently.

Clinical research clearly shows that when we listen to frequencies within the range of a brainwave (epsilon, delta, theta, alpha, beta, gamma) our brain will be entrained into that frequency within a few minutes. These frequencies entrain our brain into states that enhance focus, mental clarity, memory, and creativity.
Specific combinations of frequencies also help with learning disabilities, sleep disor- ders, post-traumatic stress and other neurological disorders. When headphones are used, these “binaural beats” also synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which is our optimal state. We embed specific “binaural beats” in our music to entrain the brain into various brainwave states for specific issues.

Truly, one of the most important aspects of music is its power to transform our emotions. We know this intuitively and now science is confirming the link between emotional and physical health. Many professionals in the field of healing believe that repressed or blocked emotions are at the root of many of the issues and diseases we manifest. We see this when emotional healing appears to cause symptoms to disappear.
Based on years of extensive research at our Institute we have developed music that trans- forms emotions into a coherent and flowing state that is both relaxed and awake -- a state where the heart and brain are synchronized. The combination of physical vibrations in the body together with our music more powerfully transforms emotional imbalances into a healthy harmonious state, where the body, mind and spirit flourish.


CLINICAL RESEARCH
(Click on the name of the paper to see the full Research Paper)

Music produces a response characteristic of relaxation in which autonomic, immune, limbic, endocrine and neuropeptide systems are altered. Likewise it produces desired psychological responses such as reductions in anxiety and fear. Music is now being used in many areas of medicine including labor and delivery, surgery, neurology, psychiatry, pain and stress management, and many others. The military has been using music for PTSD for over 60 years.

There are research papers for each of the following benefits:

Relaxation and Stress Reduction – Sound and music with consistent low frequencies dramatically lower heart and respiration rates and blood pressure to reduce stress and oxygen consumption. Tests with chemotherapy patients at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida found the following: 62.8% reduction of anxiety and 61.6% reduction of fatigue for 27 patients in 41 vibroacoustics sessions.

Pain Management – There have been a large number of clinical research papers on pain relief, particularly using Vibroacoustic Tables. Low frequency vibrations and any music that entrains the brain into a lower brainwave state reduces pain. Dr. George Patrick measured over 50% reduction of pain and symptoms. Duke University Medical Center also reported significant pain reduction. Also at Duke patients who received vibroacoustic physical therapy following total knee replacements showed increased range of motion. Research papers also show reducing blood pressure, relieving chronic headaches, migraines, and tinnitus.

ADD, ADHD and Sleep Enhancement – Binaural beats have proven to be extremely effective in research projects by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson. We also do a treatment that is quite successful by tuning the binaural beats to the person. Music has also been proven to enhance intelligence, learning and IQ, reading and literacy skills, spatial-temporal reasoning, mathematical abilities, emotional intelligence, and improves memory performance, concentration and attention.

Performance and Productivity - There are many research papers showing that music improves physical and athletic performance, focus, body movement and coordination. Music also increases productivity and helps fight fatigue.

Actual research papers are below.

Vibroacoustic Therapies

The National Institute of Health and other studies have shown that a treatment on a sound table provide the following:
• Over 50% reduction of pain and symptoms
• Slows heart rate
• Reduces oxygen consumption
• Decreases blood pressure
• Slows respiration rate
• Clears the mind from anxiety
• Creates a feeling of calm and peacefulness
• Relaxes muscles
• Changes brain wave frequencies (generally slowing down from beta to alpha and alpha to theta or delta)
• Clears the mind from anxiety
• Creates a feeling of calm and peacefulness

As an additional benefit, vibroacoustics can help people to learn to recognize the state of relaxation and, over time, become able to reach relaxation at will. Vibroacoustics is a great way to learn how to relax and develop relaxation as a daily habit!

International studies continue to attest to the effectiveness as an intervention for clinical populations in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, migraine headaches, gastrointestinal ulcers, Raynaud’s disease, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, polyarthritis, sports injury, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, autism, insomnia, depression, and anxiety disorders.

Interviews with massage therapists find consistent themes in the use of sound tables to enhance therapies, encouraging muscles, facial and connective tissues to relax more quickly, and increasing the deepness and duration of the massage effects. They often note that it reduces their physical effort, as the sound table is like having an extra set of hands. In addition, enthusiastic clients have a high return rate, and spread positive word of mouth that increases the client base.

Sound and music with consistent low frequencies dramatically lower heart and respiration rates and blood pressure to reduce stress and oxygen consumption. Tests with chemotherapy patients at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida found the following: 62.8% reduction of anxiety and 61.6% reduction of fatigue for 27 patients in 41 vibroacoustics sessions.

A study at Duke University Medical Center also reported significant pain reduction for 20 women who had surgery for various cancers.

Also at Duke, patients who received vibroacoustic physical therapy following total knee replacements showed increased range of motion.

Heart surgeons using vibroacoustics therapy during cardiac surgery recovery found significant decreases in patients' use of sedative and pain medication, time spent on the ventilator, time spent in the cardiac unit, and overall time spent in the hospital.

1) The Effects of Vibroacoustic Music on Symptom Reduction Inducing the Relaxation Response through Good Vibrations
Ongoing since 1995, the National Institutes of Health has the most extensive program in the U.S. for vibroacoustic pain and symptom reduction, treating over 50,000 patients per year. In one study, Dr. George Patrick measured the physiological and behavioural effectiveness of these interventions with 272 patients and found over 50% reduction of pain and symptoms.

2) Music and Vibration Therapy as Clinical Intervention for Physiologic Functional Adaptation
Music has the ability to alter fear and stress responses by re-setting homeostatic set-points precisely. Music therapy impacts upon stress and fear responses in a manner resulting in stress and pain management, language and cognition, memory, attention, functional motorplanning (praxis), auditory tracking, figure-ground awareness, depth perception, sound location, auditory/visual integration, auditory and motor coordination, proprioception, vestibular and tactile stimulation, and many other areas of human function.

6) Binaural Beat Technology in Humans: A Pilot Study to Assess Psychological and Physiologic Effects.
Binaural beat technology may exhibit positive effect on self-reported psychologic measures, especially anxiety.

7) Binaural Auditory Beats Affect Vigilance Performance and Mood.
Beta-frequency beats were associated with less negative mood. Results suggest that the presentation of binaural auditory beats can affect psychomotor performance and mood. This technology may have applications for the control of attention and arousal and the enhancement of human performance.

8) Music Can Enhance Exercise-induced Sympathetic Dominancy Assessed by Heart Rate Variability.
It is suggested that after exercise in which sympathetic nerve activity is dominant, preferred music synchronizes with the activated physical response, further promoting the response and increasing sympathetic nerve activity. Combining music with exercise is therefore not only enjoyable in terms of mood but also may promote physiological excitation and enhance physical activation.

9) Effects of Music During Exercise on RPE, Heart rate and the Autonomic Nervous System.Conclusions:
These findings suggested that music evokes a ''distraction effect'' during low intensity exercise. Therefore, when jogging or walking at comparatively low exercise intensity, listening to a favorite piece of music might decrease the influence of stress caused by fatigue, thus increasing the ''comfort'' level of performing the exercise.

10) Music Enhances Performance and Perceived Enjoyment of Sprint Interval Exercise.
Music enhanced in-task performance and enjoyment of an acute bout of SIT. Listening to music during intense interval exercise may be an effective strategy to facilitate participation in, and adherence to, this form of training.
