Vibro Acoustic Massage

Vibro-acoustic massage can help reduces the symptoms of 

  • Fibromyalgia pain, 
  • Alzheimer’s Disease,
  • Parkinson’s Disease,
  • Depression, 
  • and increase blood flow.
  • Calming the mind
  •  Eliminating headaches, dizziness, spasms of neck muscle
  •  Removing muscle cramps and blocks
  • Reduce Symptoms of ADHD in Children and Adults
  • Reduce Stress



We use this technology which is  a device that sends  timed vibrations into your body while simultaneously feeding bi-nurial beats into your ears. The frequencies meld together and are scientifically proven  to help your body renew and balance energy. 


Studies show that  feeling the vibrations with the sound is one of the best ways to increase energy and the flow of this energy back into the body in an organized way.


  

Brainwave Entrainment:

Each therapy track is embedded with specific frequencies that coax the brain into different therapeutic states. These include careful temporal event control (the number of sounds striking the ear per second) and binaural pitch detunement (slightly different pitch in each ear) resulting in a brainwave response to support sleep (with delta frequency), stress relief (with theta frequency), relaxation (with alpha frequency) and energizing (with low beta frequency).


Vibroacoustic Stimulation:

Low frequency sounds specifically included in each sound track provide vibrotactile stimulation to the body at the cellular level encouraging increased circulation, decreased pain and increased joint mobility. Because vibration increases blood flow and circulation while it relaxes, it may also decrease blood pressure.

Brain Stimulant:

The energy healing be an effective tool to stimulate healthy neural activity in the brain thereby reducing risk or impact of various neural diseases.

Clinically Proven Benefits:


Vibroacoustics Research and Techniques on Sound Tables                                                                       Clinical Research in Hospitals and Institutions
On going since 1995, the National Institutes of Health runs the most extensive program in the U.S. for vibroacoustic pain and symptom reduction, treating over 50,000 patients per year. In measuring the physiological and behavioral effectiveness of these interventions with 267 patients, Dr. Patrick George found over a 50% reduction of pain and symptoms. He theorizes that this pain relief is relaxation-induced.

Tests with chemotherapy patients at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida found similar results: 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, vibroacoustics was tested in physical therapy following total knee replacements, showing 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.

These are but a few of the many studies on vibroacoustics. Many point to the effectiveness of the therapy in triggering the Relaxation Response. Physiologically, the relaxation response initiates the following changes:
• Reduces oxygen consumption
• Decreases blood pressure
• Slows heart rate
• Slows respiration rate
• Relaxes muscles

Mentally, deep relaxation:
• 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!Vibroacoustic therapy is a well researched and tested therapy. The following benefits have been clinically proven by separate medical studies around the world.

Studies on Vibroacoustic Therapy

 

Vibroacoustic Therapy Published Research

LATEST RESEARCH PUBLISHED

Fibromyalgia

Hope for Fibromyalgia Patients Comes from VAT. Read the PDF: VAT and Fibromyalgia.

In this recent study from Canada, low frequency sound therapy (also known as VAT) showed no adverse effects and patients receiving the LFSS treatment showed statistically and clinically relevant improvement. Further phase 2 and 3 trials are warranted.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Low Frequency Vibratory Sounds Spark Neurite Outgrowth.
Dementias, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), involve a progressive deterioration of
memory functioning mood disorders. Although the mechanisms of neuronal degeneration in AD are not clear, several investigators have reported an increase in AD patients’ self-expression following music therapy. This study examined the effect of low-frequency vibratory sound on neurite outgrowth and showed that low-frequency vibratory sounds of 20-100 Hz enhanced neurite outgrowth.

Arthritis


Juvenile: A study was conducted on children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), a chronic autoimmune disease that affects up to 1 in 1,000 children worldwide. The study concluded that vibroacoustic therapy is a revolutionary tool in the field of multidisciplinary management of chronic pain in JIA and triggered a noticeable diminution of the SDAI score, decreasing the disease activity from severe to moderate and resulted in a huge decrease in anxiety, chronic fatigability and depressive tendency compared to the control group.

(Eds) The Art and Science of Music Therapy: a Handbook. London: Harwood Academic.

Rheumatoid: A study by Chesky and Michel in Texas, USA found that stimulation of the Pacinian corpuscles initiated a physiological process resulting in significant pain relief of 64%. Persons with rheumatoid arthritis pain were provided music only, music and music vibration, or a placebo. The perception of pain reduction indicated greater changes in the music with music vibration condition. The total percentage reduction for music and vibration was 64%, music alone 24%, and placebo 2%.

Depression


Because vibroacoustic therapy and especially vibroacoustic therapy with music have such an enormous beneficial impact on the emotional state of the client receiving it, VAT can help alleviate depression and reduce the need for pharmaceuticals.

Recovery from Surgery or Trauma

Knee and Hip Replacement Surgery: Patients who underwent knee replacements or revisions produced a 21-percent reduction of tension after receiving VAT treatment post-surgically. Subjects in the experimental group went home an average of one half-day earlier, used fewer mg of pain medication, and expressed more satisfaction with the care they received than did control group subjects.

Physical Therapy: Vibroacoustics has a long history of experimentation in physical therapy. Treatment benefits include reduction of muscle tones, increased ROM, reduction of muscle spasticity, and sensory stimulation for patients with severe disabilities. Research at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA, showed that patients who were treated with VAT during physical therapy following total knee replacements showed greater passive range of motion. 66% of patients who were given the experimental treatment were able to achieve a 90-degree bend compared to 44 percent of the control subjects.


Cardiac Surgery: Heart surgeon Charles Butler, MD, PhD, and Penelope Johnson Butler, MD found in a New Jersey, USA study that there are significant benefits using physioacoustic vibrations during recovery from cardiovascular surgery. VAT intervention promoted the use of shorter-acting anesthetics and resulted in a decrease in the use of sedative and pain medications on these patients. The average ventilator-dependent time was reduced from 17 hours to 7 hours, time spent in the ICU was reduced from 36 hours to 18 hours, and the overall hospital stay was reduced from 9 days to an average of 5 days.

Sports Injuries:Therapists treating sports injuries have found vibroacoustic therapy a useful method of relieving pain. In over-use syndromes low frequency sound waves are reported to relieve pain and to reduce the length of the rehabilitation period. When treating injuries, it is advised that vibroacoustic therapy should not be used where there is any internal or external bleeding.

Pain and Anxiety Reduction

The non-pharmacologic nature of vibroacoustics makes it an important pain management tool. While it may not work in every instance, it may reduce the need for pain medication and provide a pleasant alternative to medication. Its ease of use makes it a promising therapy for pain from any source including surgery, cancer, arthritis and trauma.

National Institutes of Health Study and Ongoing Treatment Program: In a program at the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), researchers attained more than 50% reduction of pain and other symptoms using VibroAcoustic technology. A program evaluation study, published in 1999, revealed a reduction of pain and other symptoms between 49% and 59% at the NIH. Because of this success, the VibroAcoustic program has been an ongoing patient and family treatment offering at the NIH for over eight years and continues to obtain these effective results. The facility has included vibroacoustic therapy as an integral part of its treatment for several years.

End of Life: Research with 25 patients in a hospice indicated that those who received vibroacoustic treatment used significantly less medication in 48 hours, experienced less discomfort, and reported lower pain intensity than those who did not receive the treatment.

Cancer Treatment: Nurses at the Ella Milbanks Foshay Cancer Center in Jupiter, Florida did a test program using vibroacoustics for cancer patients, many of whom indicated they appreciated the physical and mental relief experienced in the vibroacoustic music session and left feeling significantly better than when they arrived. In addition, the center’s nurses reported feeling a sense of satisfaction at having improved their patients’ treatment experience. Using the equipment proved to be easy and required little additional time.

Cancer Treatment including Chemotherapy: Twenty women at Duke University Medical Center who had surgery for ovarian, endometrial, or cervical cancer experienced significant pain reduction with treatment. This and other studies were used as the basis for more research examining the effectiveness of vibroacoustic music for pain and symptom management in outpatient chemotherapy treatment.

Insomnia

Patients easily fall asleep during treatment and they have reported that after treatment they have less difficulty in falling asleep at their normal time for retiring and the duration of sleep is longer than they normally experience. This led to specific use as therapy for insomnia. Treatment for insomnia has best effects when it is carried out in the late afternoon.

(Eds) The Art and Science of Music Therapy: a Handbook. London: Harwood Academic.

Circulation and Blood Pressure


There is often a significant result in the reduction of systolic blood pressure after vibroacoustic therapy and patients suffering from severe circulatory deficiency in the extremities may find effective relief of this condition. These observations relate to polyclinical patients as well as to institutionalized patients with edema.

Parkinson’s Disease

Results have found vibroacoustic treatments to be extremely effective for reducing symptoms associated with Parkinson’s. Generally the effects of the treatment last 24 -48 hours.

For documentation on the earliest “vibration therapy” see this article about Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot and his vibratory chair which he used for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
