Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) combines powerful vibration and tones to induce an immediate relaxation state. Almost immediately upon hearing a bowl, your body and mind will begin to relax. By placing the “therapeutic singing bowls” directly on your body, and using correct technique, you will feel effects physically within the tissues of your body.
During a VST session our minds are acutely tuned to tones, or combinations of tones, which effect our conscious brain causing our mind to calm more quickly and efficiently than during meditation alone.
You will stay fully clothed during the session and there is minimal, to no touch involved in a VST session. This can be reassuring to those who are not comfortable with touch, yet are longing for bodywork. Benefits include:
- decrease in muscle tension, reducing everyday discomforts and chronic pain
- the mind becomes calm, yet focused – allowing you to concentrate when necessary
- helps to balance your moods – helping with anxiety, depression and more
- blood pressure decreases
- harmful effects of prolonged exposure to stress seem to melt away
- boosts confidence
Like other forms of meditation, vibrational sound therapy can help us be more internally aware, while being more present in the moment, and more connected with our surroundings.
The unique things about this modality is that once a client is familiar with the process of Vibrational Sound Therapy, the overall time between the beginning of the session, and the point of relaxation becomes even shorter!
Session length is typically 60 minutes
