The Healing Power of Sound and Music
Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) is a safe, drug-free, non-invasive approach to reducing pain and anxiety and improving quality of life. Whether you are suffering from work overload or are dealing with a serious medical condition, vibroacoustic therapy is a powerful modality that will help you relax and allow healing to take place.
Vibroacoustic therapy uses sound to produce vibrations that are applied directly to the body. During the vibroacoustic therapy process, a client lies on the specially designed mat or bed or sits in a chair that is embedded with speakers or transducers which transmit sound into vibrations that travel through the body in a soothing, healing motion that we liken to an "internal massage".
A seasoned VAT practitioner and health coach, Kate Kunkel has been conducting vibroacoustic therapy since 2000, practicing in three countries.
If you suffer from acute pain from an injury, chronic pain, neurological issues or COPD, vibroacoustic therapy can help.
This non-invasive, energy-based alternative health approach to wellness has been used for over 40 years to successfully treat patients who have suffered strokes, are dealing with the pain and stress of cancer treatments, have neurological issues or who are recovering from surgeries including knee and hip replacements.
You can go to a trained therapist for a serious medical condition, or purchase a vibroacoustic system for your own use at home or work. Either way, you will benefit from the power of vibroacoustics.
Vibroacoustic therapy can be used in conjunction with any other therapy, whether it is Western allopathic medicine or alternative therapies.
Vibroacoustic therapy is a form of sound therapy based on the principle that life is vibration. Matter, including the human body, vibrates all the time, at various frequencies. Sound and music also vary in frequency.
Therefore, when the various frequencies of sound and/or music are converted to vibration which is introduced to the human body, it can be utilized to bring the body into a state of healthy resonance.
Because our bodies are composed mainly of water – approximately 70% for an older person and about 90% for a newborn baby, all of this water is set into motion when the body is exposed to these sound vibrations. As this water is moved by the vibration, its molecules are reacting and communicating with each other. As this communication occurs, harmony and a healthy resonance are restored in the body.
Because vibroacoustic therapy helps improve blood flow, gets the body into the parasympathetic (healing) state, and is a powerful pain-reducing modality, it has many benefits to the brain.
Regarding Alzheimer's Disease: Conclusions from a study at the University of Toronto suggest that 40 Hz stimulation over time can lead to increased cognition. If we combine the effects of VAT with proper nutrition, exercise, and other proven therapies as demonstrated by Dr. Bredesen, Dr. Amen, Dr. Sandison, and others, the benefits can only be magnified.
Recently, a pair of early-stage clinical studies testing the safety and efficacy of 40Hz sensory stimulation to treat Alzheimer’s disease has found that the potential therapy was well tolerated, produced no serious adverse effects, and was associated with some significant neurological and behavioral benefits among a small cohort of participants.
Regarding Parkinson's Disease: Another Canadian study was undertaken, examining the benefits of vibroacoustic therapy on patients with Parkinson's disease. Results, though preliminary, showed that there was a significant decrease in rigidity and tremors was shown, as well as a significant increase in step length and improved speed on the grooved pegboard task.
As a brain health coach trained by Dr. Bredesen and Dr. Amen, Kate has used vibroacoustic therapy extensively to help people with brain and mental health issues. Because of its power to put the client in a parasympathetic state, improve blood and oxygen flow and stimulate the vagus nerve, vibroacoustic therapy is a powerful adjunct to all natural healing solutions.
