Let sound heal
Discover Relief Through Sound
There are over a dozen research projects on vibroacoustic therapies alone. 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…and the list goes on!
RELAXATION & 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.
Over the last 10 years graduate students at our Sound Healing Institute have had assign-ments to create treatements for Depression, Anger, and Anxiety. We have collated, refined and tested these treatment plans over the years to develop highly effective plans. The music and vibroacoustics have been profoundly effective in bringing clients to a deep state of peace and stillness. This is also the ideal state to then provide any other cognitive therapies.
ADD & ADHD
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. Tuning the music to the natural frequency of a person when they are concentrating makes the brainwave entrainment even more effective.
There are a few research papers on the subject. Three of our students have used a variety of sound healing treatments including Sound Tables and now no longer have fibromyalgia.
BOOSTING IMMUNE SYSTEM
Natural resonant vibrations that match our natural healthy state relax the body and mind, therefore boosting the immune system’s response.
There have been a large number of clinical research papers on pain relief, particularly using Vibroacoustic Tables. Low frequency vibration and any music that entrain the brain into a lower brainwave state reduces pain. In one study, Dr. George Patrick measured the physiological and behavioral effectiveness of these interventions with 272 patients and found over 50% reduction of pain and symptoms. 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. There are also research papers showing the effectiveness of music for: reducing blood pressure, speeding up post-stroke recovery, relieving chronic headaches, migraines, and tinnitus. It also has been used for anti-seizure effectiveness, and for postpartum well-being.
There are many research projects (including those by Jeffrey Thompson) that show the effectiveness of using Binaural Beats to entrain the brain into Delta for sleep. Besides using the music and vibroacoustics before bedtime, the research also shows that by reducing the amount of stress in the body and mind throughout the day the body is better able to drop into deep sleep at night. Tuning the music to the natural frequency of a person when they are in deep sleep makes the brainwave entrainment even more effective.
We have done research with 12 Parkinson’s patients using Vibroacoustic Therapy. The average reduction of symptoms was from 8 to 2 (on a scale of 10). We have found that vibrating the body with sound is especially effective for any muscular or neurologi-cal issues.
